Amazon Web Services S3

Setting Up the Delivery


With AWS S3, you can store all of your merges securely in the cloud.  Setting this up is pretty easy, so let's dive right in.

First, you'll need to select the document for which you wish to integrate the S3 delivery.  Just click on the document you wish to use.  Once there, click on the Deliver tab.

Next, you'll want to click on the New Delivery Button to the right.

Now you can search for AWS S3 under Doc Storage.  Click on the S3 icon.

However, you can add some additional functionality if you'd like by clicking the +More Options button.

Additional Delivery Options
