Documoto’s user interface allows a user, with certain access privileges, to associate an attachment, such as a file from the user’s computer, to an entity; and then mark the attachment as a thumbnail for the entity. As a result, Documoto will render the attachment file as a thumbnail on certain screens where thumbnails are displayed for the entity. As easy as this is to do via the user interface, it is not practical to use this mechanism when attempting to create thumbnails for hundreds or thousands of entities, such as parts, or books.
The Bulk Thumbnail Association feature is a mechanism for doing just that – i.e. associating thumbnail images to one or more entities in bulk.
