When creating a new document in Synergy, your System Administrator has the ability to place the document properties at the top of new / modified documents or below the text of the document.
This setting can be found at Documents / Setup / Settings / Documents / Show: Properties. If you click on this checkbox, the document settings for all document types will be displayed above the actual document.
The way I determine this setting is based upon the type of documents that will be saved into Synergy. If I believe the majority of documents will be attachments, such as WORD, Excel, PDFs, etc. – then I would recommend placing the document settings at the top of the screen.
