The most important FAQs around document control software

Is it possible to configure the document circulation?

It is possible to configure and customize document workflows, such as review, approval, release, training, and enactment, to meet your organization's needs. Because the circulation is linked to the document template, a separate circulation can be defined for each template.

Can I set requirements for the people to be selected for the circulation steps?

For individual steps, you can define if an employee can be selected, and if so, which employee or employee profile. You can directly determine whether a minimum or maximum number of people participate in a step. You also specify a particular person or profile and set it as a mandatory entry.

If a QM document is released, is it automatically put into effect?

Normally, the enactment is automated at the end of the training phase. However, if required, the enactment can also be done manually.

Is it possible to add a periodic check to the document circulation?

You decide whether you want to send a task for periodic review when you circulate documents. If this is the case, an appointment proposal is sent to the approver based on the configuration. A task for periodic testing is sent out in advance.

How do the QM documents reach the respective employees?

Based on a document distribution list, which you can create and submit, the "Binding-for list" is established for a document. When using document distribution, enter an initial distributor in the document circulation. This is used to select employees who will receive a task for reading training after the document has been released - with regard to task processing, there is an option of sub-distribution. The document can be distributed to additional colleagues in conjunction with the reading training.

Can several employees edit one document?

Generally, a document is assigned to an author for editing. However, it is possible to transfer authorship.

Is it possible to store a numbering scheme for SOPs?

Yes, with a numbering scheme, you can assign a unique number to each document in the d.3 life science client.

How can I manage applicable documents, and does the management apply to all versions of a controlled document?

Documents or attachments can be assigned to controlled documents. These can be found in the properties of the document as well as in the preview. It is possible to set document authors to receive a notification when a new version of an applicable document or attachment is released. The management of controlled documents is carried out in a minor or major versioning.

Does the system document the printouts of a controlled document?

In controlled printing, an employee chooses the extent to which the document should be printed. They must specify the reason for printing the document, and the printout is logged. The "printout return" function notes in the system when the printout is reported as returned or as destroyed.

How do you sign documents as part of the document circulation process?

An electronic signature is implemented for all actions requiring a signature. FDA and GMP guidance requirements are met, and the personal signature is replaced. The system records each signature in the audit trail. On an additional page, the signature is displayed with the document.
