At a glance:

  • You can submit an Item to KaiNexus using a smartphone or any other email-capable device.
  • You can enable this feature for as many Template Types as you need to within your system.
    • For example, if you have both an “Idea” Template and a “Task” Template in your system, you have the option of allowing both of these Template Types to be available for email submission.
  • The email must come from the email address that is associated with your KaiNexus User Profile.
    • For example, if the email in your KaiNexus account is adam@xyzcorp.com, you must send the email from that email address. Otherwise, KaiNexus won’t know who you are or where to route your submission.
