Filing and classification

When classifying documents it is not required to prepare a separate dossier or use a different folder for each customer. In case of the Real estate management branche for each contact all documents can be divided in six segments:

  1. Document type: 
    • Financing
    • Rental contracts
    • Cleaning contracts. 
  2. Suppliers
  3. Dossier/Project
  4. Properties/Units
  5. Tag
  6. Article.


Below an example is given of how to classify the documents in folders:

  • Purchase (Invoices, Receipts, Quotations, Contracts, Reminders)
  • Sales (Invoices, Reminders, Quotations, Rental contracts, Visit reports)
  • Financials (Financial statements, Documentation, Fiscal, Year-end correction, General journal, Opening balance)
  • Legal (Power of attorney, Mortgage, Deed, Subordination, Loan agreement)
  • Tax (VAT, VPB, Payroll tax).


In Yuki you can create dossiers yourself and next bundle lease conracts in the same dossiers. Each dossier can contain the following:

  • Tasks
  • Appointments
  • Contacts
  • Documents (from the archive) like rental invoices
  • Correspondence (email).

Dossiers can thus be used to keep an overview of the issues above by subject or project. Because dossiers have a start and an end date you can keep track of al the ongoing dossiers at that moment. In addition dossiers can also be used to keep structure.  For example, you can immediately see per dossier which outstanding tasks remain and which correspondence has recently taken place.
