Perceptive Content - Setting up a Quick Search Button

How to set up Quick Search button on Taskbar.

1.  Log into Perceptive Content.

2.  Look down in the bottom right hand corner of your computer monitor.  You should see the date and time located here.  To the left of the date and time, you will see a little triangle that points up.  Click the triangle, and in the “Customize” box that’s now showing, you will see a little Perceptive Content sun icon.

3.  Left click and drag the Perceptive Content icon down to the taskbar where the time, date, and other icons are located.  The icon will disappear from the “Customize” box, and will now be on your taskbar.

4.  Now, with the Perceptive Content icon in your taskbar, right click on it and select “Options”.

5.  The “Perceptive Content System Tray Options” Box will now be open.  On the top drop down, “On Mouse Click:”, click the drop down arrow and select “Applications Default” and then click “OK”.

6.  Direct your attention now to the ImageNow Toolbar.  On the left side of the toolbar you will see “Applications”.  Click the little black drop down arrow to the right of “Applications” and “DLC – CC – PI – AUP”.

7.  Right click on “DLC – CC – PI – AUP” and then “Set as Default Action”.

8.  With these two settings set, simply go to your “Add/Update a Person” page within PASS and pull up an individual person’s page.  With their page open, simply left click on the Perceptive Content icon (located down by your date and time), and Perceptive Content will pull all documents in the systems having to do with that particular person.
