Add files in the Documents area

You can add files to a folder or you can add entire folders with files to the Documents area.

Before you start

Upload files

  1. In Onvio Center select Documents.
  2. Choose one of the availabe tabs.
    • Client Documents
    • Firm Documents
    • My Documents
  3. If you choose to upload files to Client Documents, you'll first need to select a client from the drop-down menu.
  4. Select an existing folder or create a new folder.
  5. To upload files or folders with files you can:
    • Drag and drop the file or folder into a folder in Onvio Documents.
    • Select Upload, find the files and select Open.
    • Select Cloud, then choose one of the third-party cloud storage services - Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box.
    • Select New, then Scan to scan documents into Onvio.


  • When you add a file that already exists in the Documents area, you have the option to replace the original file or to keep both files. If you keep both files, the name of the most recently uploaded file is appended with a "(1)". Onvio sequentially appends any additional files that you upload with the same name.
  • You cannot drag and drop files from within applications such as Microsoft Outlook into the Documents area; therefore, to add files from Outlook or from other applications, you must first save the file to a location outside of any applications such as your desktop, and then drag it into the Documents area.
  • When printing partial tax returns from UltraTax CS to Onvio, note that file names for duplicate preparer copies already stored in Onvio will be appended with the date and time; however, client copies of partial tax returns will be overwritten in Onvio.
  • Larger files may take several minutes to upload. You can continue to work in Onvio while the files upload.
