How do I link documents in a contact's CRM Document Storage to one (or more) of their accounts?

If you need to tie a Document to a particular account for a contact, there are two ways to do so.

To illustrate, let's take a look at the Accounts page for Tony Stark:

The first method would simply be to upload a document into Tony's CRM Document Storage area.  Then, from Tony's Documents page, you would select "Linked Accounts" from the Document's Actions menu:

You'd then receive a modal where you can click "add" to select from any of Tony's accounts in your database to tie the Document to:

After clicking "add", you'd see the below:

Click inside the "select an account" box, and you'll see Tony's available accounts:

If you were to select the first one in the example above, you'd then see the below:

Just click "add account" to finish linking the document to the account. You'll then see the following:

Click "add" again to select additional accounts to link the document to.

After making your selections, if you then go to the Account's Details page and scroll to the "Other" section, you'll see that there is a Document linked (or multiple Documents if you've linked more than one) and can click the number to see and download those documents if necessary:

The second method to link a Document to an Account is to add it from the Documents section on an Account's Details page.  So, if we clicked on the "1" in the highlighted area above, we'd then see the below:

Regardless of which of these methods you use, the linked Document(s) will then be on display within the Account Documents section of the Account Details page for that account, as displayed above.

Also, Documents linked to Accounts will display on the Contact's main Documents page, just like other Documents, but with an Account Number in the Account column.
