Check That All Services are Running

In your system tray (down by the clock) – you should have 3 or 4 ND icons – ndSync, ndOffice (you will log into these apps) and ndClick (this one does not have any options or settings, just make sure it’s there).
ndMail: If your firm is subscribed to ndMail – you will see a 4th icon for it. You should also see a pane/window for ndMail WITHIN an Outlook email (see step 3 below for ndMail checkup).

If you do not see the icons you expect to see then either 1) the plugin / app has been disabled or closed or 2) it was not installed or needs to be reinstalled.

Troubleshooting Step #1

Attempt to Open / Start the program. To do that, search for it from the Windows start button the way you would for any other program or app.

  1. Click the Windows Start button and start typing OR use the search bar in your taskbar to search for the plugin you are missing: ndClick – ndOffice – ndSync – ndMail
  2. If you find it….click on it to run / open it and see if that solves the problem. Note, you may need to log into the app.

Troubleshooting Step #2

Install or reinstall the NetDocuments plug-ins following the steps on these pages dependent upon the NetDocuments features your firm has:
