Good News for Australian Users.

Bundledocs are thrilled to introduce a new storage location. Australian users now have the option to choose Australia Central and Australia East for the storage of new bundles. Making the change is simple and can be done directly within your account via the ‘Account Settings‘ area. Full details are covered in our manual but if you’re interested to learn more about our storage location options get in touch with our team.


Ready to Strike Out?

We recently received a request from a number of users, asking for the inclusion of a strike-out option. In short, they needed to be able to remove document contents from the generated bundle however the item (document name) still had to remain on the index page with a strike-through.

Your wish is our command! The Strike-Out feature is now available and it’s even supported if you use our Custom Index. How does it work?

  • Mark your Document. Select the ‘Edit Details’ and select the ‘Is this document a strike-out?’ and ‘Update’ to complete.

  • Let’s Generate. When you’re ready to complete your bundle, select ‘Generate’.

  • That’s it. You’re bundle will be instantly available to preview and download.

Bundledocs will then automatically generate the index page and any document that has been selected will have a strike-through. The contents of any marked documents will also be removed from your updated bundle. Perfect!

Why not login to Bundledocs today and give it a try for yourself.


Time Change for documents

It’s now possible to set time information for any uploaded document.

This can be done by editing a document and amending the ‘Display Time’ field.

It works in the same way as amending the document dates for your bundle. In some cases, you may find that the document date - or document time - is incorrect. With Bundledocs, you can now easily amend both the document date and the document time.

Remember our New Feature Release - January 2019 post where we released our Instant Re-Order feature? Just think how amazing this will be when coupled with our latest amend document date/time release. Now every document contained within Bundledocs can be quickly and easily sorted with a single click!

What is a Court Bundle?

First things first, what is a court bundle?

Before we jump into what a court bundle is, let’s define a bundle. According to Merrian-Webster.com, a bundle is “a group of things fastened together for convenient handling“.

But what is a court bundle? Although we have found no formal definition for a court bundle specifically, it is similar to trial bundles (see definition here) and as such can be defined as:

A court bundle contains copies of all documents (evidence, statements, forms, expert reports etc.) that are relevant to a court case. With all information in one place, it is easy to refer to in court. Court bundles are typically stored in a leaver arch file(s) or used electronically.

Are you Court Compliant?

One of the most important things to consider when preparing a court bundle, is to ensure that it is court compliant and adheres to the court rules on court bundle preparation.

For example, for more information on the Practice Directions and Family Procedure Rules head over to the Justice on Gov.UK website to read the Practice Directions 27A - Family Proceedings: Court Bundles in full. It covers everything from who is responsible for preparing the bundle; the contents of the bundle; format of the bundle; timetable for preparing the bundle; to lodging the bundle - and much more.

Bundledocs is fully compliant and offers everything needed to generate a court bundle. Next, let’s take a look at how we can create a court bundle using Bundledocs…

The Ultimate Court Bundle Generator Software

Last week we hosted a webinar with the guys over in Tikit to highlight how document bundling is made incredibly simple with Bundledocs. If you missed the session and are interested to see how it all works then not to worry. We’ve gathered together everything you need to create the perfect PDF bundle in minutes. Here’s how it’s done…


HOW CAN I CREATE A PDF BUNDLES DIRECT FROM MY TIKIT P4W CASE FILE?

 

Having trouble viewing this video? Head over to our YouTube Channel.

 

STEP ONE: ACCESS YOUR DOCUMENTS IN P4W

Starting in your Tikit P4W Case File all you need to do is search for the documents you would like to export into a pdf bundle. Simply type your client matter code and choose what documents you would like to include. Choose any document type - Bundledocs will automatically convert them to PDF for you.


STEP TWO: ARRANGE DOCUMENTS IN THE CORRECT ORDER

Before uploading you can quickly and easily make changes to the range of selected documents. For example you can change the order in which they appear, change the document description or even amend the document date if you’re including this in your final bundle.


STEP THREE: UPLOAD TO BUNDLEDOCS

Now that we’ve decided what documents we want to include in our PDF bundle, the next step will be to choose where we want the documents to go. If you’ve already created a bundle/sections in Bundledocs then you can just go-ahead and select the final destination.

If not, then you create your bundle/sections now. All you need to do is select the ‘New Bundle‘ option to create a new bundle; or alternatively select the ‘New Section‘ option to create a new section. Click ‘Upload‘ to complete.


STEP FOUR: ACCESS BUNDLEDOCS TO COMPLETE

Once this is done your documents will be automatically uploaded from your case file into Bundledocs. From there we can go-ahead and customise the look and feel of our bundle further - only if you need to.

With click of a single button (the magical generate button) Bundledocs will instantly merge all your documents into a single PDF bundle. Even better, we will automatically create a hyperlinked table of contents page and fully paginate the entire bundle. Your PDF is instantly available to download, save, print or securely share with others. What could be better!

Can I Remove The Page Numbering From My Bundle?

If you need to merge a wide range of documents (PDF docs, word, images, excel) into a single PDF file then Bundledocs is the tool for you. We handle complex tasks such as indexing, pagination, hyperlinking and bookmarking as standard. However, the best bit about Bundledocs is it’s really flexible and fully customisable.

 
Is it possible to remove the page numbering from the final generated bundle?

Recently our support team had a question asking if it was possible to remove the page numbering from the completed bundle? Yes! Bundledocs automatically paginates documents and your entire bundle as standard - as well as creating a hyperlinked index page and bookmarked PDF bundle. However, we know this isn’t for everyone. So if you would like to remove page numbering from your Bundledocs bundle, here’s how it’s done…

  1. Select ‘Generate‘.

  2. Expand ‘Page Numbering’.

  3. Select ‘Suppress Page Numbering on Documents‘.

  4. Press ‘Generate‘ to complete. Your bundle - without page numbering - will be created for you instantly.

That’s it! How simple was that? Remember, there are plenty of ways to customise your bundle with Bundledocs. Login to Bundledocs today, grab a copy of our manual and give it a try for yourself! Have any questions? Let our awesome support team know and they’ll help you out.
