What are bookmarklets?

Bookmarklets are external tools stored in a web browser which add useful features to AODocs. They enable users to extend the possibilities of AODocs.

Bookmarklets are built on top of the AODocs application programming interface (API). All actions performed via bookmarklets respect the permissions configured in AODocs. This means that you can't perform an action via a bookmarklet that is forbidden in the AODocs interface.

Important: You can't use bookmarklets with new views. Switch to legacy views.
