Custom Document Types

In Martide there is a feature called Custom Document Types. These are internal documents that are unique to your company that you can add to a seafarer’s profile. Here's how to use them.

Using Custom Document Types

To use this feature, log in to your Martide account and go to Settings in the drop down menu under your profile picture in the top right corner and click on Custom Document Types:
