Let’s dive into the POM Vault.
1. Sign in to Access Your Vault’s Account Information
With the first set of login credentials sent to your email, visit https://pomvault.com/ and click the person icon in the upper right corner. Enter your information and click Log In.
Here you will see your vault’s web address of your personal, private cloud as well as a vault login button.
2. Log Into Your Vault
Press the “Vault Login” button, and use the second set of credentials sent to your email to log in and access your private cloud.
3. Your Home Screen Dashboard
Your dashboard is personalized to only files and folders that are in your POM Vault. You can quickly see how many documents you’ve uploaded and how much storage you are using. You can also view your recent documents on the left side of the dashboard, as well as files and folders you’ve starred and shared.
4. 9 Special Situation Lockboxes
Click on the “My Cloud” menu button and select “Vault.” Under 1.POMVAULT, you’ll see a list of folders we call Special Situation Lockboxes where you can start uploading your family’s most important documentation relating to life’s most crucial situations. As with all the lockboxes, you can give special permission to certain people to access specific lockboxes.
5. Open Your Vault
Click on 1. POMVAULT to enter your vault. You’ll see dozens of established category lockboxes to help you organize. Browse the various lockboxes to see how easy we’ve made it for you to store every important piece of paper.
6. Upload Folders and Documents
It’s almost too easy! In the right corner above category lockboxes, select “Add Files and Folders.” From here, you can easily upload a file to any folder or add a custom folder of your own.
7. What You Can Do With Your Files
Now that you have a document uploaded, you have a number of things you can do with it. Hover your mouse over the date you uploaded your file and you will find action icons. You can preview your photo, download it, share it, copy it, move it within your vault, delete it, or lock it.
8. Add a Note
If there’s a story that goes along with a photo, a travel journey you’re transcribing, or letters you are writing for your children, you can add a text note to any of your folders.
9. Search for Things Your Vault
The search bar appears on top of every screen in your vault. The search will only produce results of items uploaded to your personal vault. It will show you a dropdown list of everything in your vault that contains that search keyword.
