What are bookmarklets?

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

Bookmarklets are built on top of the AODocs API, and all the actions performed via the bookmarklets will respect the permissions configured in AODocs (in other words, you cannot do via a bookmarklet an action that would be forbidden to you in the normal AODocs interface).

Install a bookmarklet

When you are in the AODocs homepage, select the bookmarklet you want to install and drag and drop the bookmarklet link from https://bookmarklets.aodocs.com to your bookmark tab.

Installing a bookmarklet

Launch a bookmarklet

Depending on the bookmarklet used, go to the AODocs page supported by the bookmarklet, and click on the bookmarklet in the bookmark bar to launch it.

Launching a bookmarklet

If the bookmarklet does not launch, check that your browser does not block pop-ups. If the URL bar shows pop-up blocker icon on its right, click on it and select “Always show pop-ups from aodocs.com”.

Uninstall a bookmarklet

Removing the bookmarklet from the bookmark bar uninstalls the AODocs bookmarklets.
