What is Redaction?

Before we jump into how to redact court documents, let’s quickly cover what redaction is. The meaning of redaction, according to the Law Dictionary (thelawdictionary.org), is a document that has been modified, edited or revised and any confidential or sensitive information removed from it.

When it comes to redaction you need to be careful that you are not simply masking the text in your document - especially when you’re using electronic documents. True redaction means that the confidential information is completely removed.

If you need to redact your court documents then look no further than Bundledocs. Here’s how it works…

How to Redact Court Documents with Bundledocs?


Step One: Upload your documents into Bundledocs

Step Two: Launch the preview window.

Step Three: From the Annotations dropdown, select the ‘Redaction‘ option

Step Four: Select the area of the page you would like to apply the redaction. You can adjust the size and placement to ensure all confidential information is included in the redaction area. Repeat for each piece of information.

Step Five: Now you’ve added all your redactions, you’re ready to generate. Open the Generate window and set your redaction and annotation preferences. Click Generate to complete.

Remember with Bundledocs you can generate your bundle as many times as you need. Add redactions, make changes, amend and re-generate. You can prepare the perfect bundle every time with Bundledocs.

How to Print a Trial Bundle Double-Sided?

The new Civil Procedure Rules came into force on April 6th, are you ready?

How_To_Print_Trial_Bundle_Double_Sided_Printing_Bundledocs.png

If you create trial bundles then you will be aware that the new Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) came into force this month, on April 6th 2019. The new rules set out some important changes for anyone preparing bundles for hearing or trial. One of the most note-able changes is - “Unless the court otherwise directs, documents in the trial bundle should be copied double-sided”.

We want to make sure you’re compliant with the new CPR updates. So in today’s post we will cover how you can print your bundle double-sided using Bundledocs trial bundle software. Here’s how it works…

 
 

Once you’ve built your bundle, the final step is to set your printing - and make it suitable for double sided printing. To recap, here’s a quick video on how to create a trial bundle using Bundledocs. Now for printing…

  • Let’s Generate. Select ‘Generate‘ and expand the ‘Section Pages‘ area. Select the option ‘Generate with Vacat Pages on Sections‘. This will allow you to print double sided and will ensure that each section begins on the right side of the page. Hit ‘Generate‘ to complete.

  • Download your Trial Bundle. Once your bundle is complete you can go ahead and download it. Bundledocs automatically produces bundles in pdf format (although you can export to a zip file too) and available to download instantly.

Can I Collaborate with Colleagues in Remote Locations on Bundles using Bundledocs?

Let’s discuss collaboration. Here at Bundledocs making it easy and secure to work with others has been our priority since day one. Plus as a cloud-first solution we have the flexibility to allow you to work seamlessly with anyone, anytime and on any device. Let’s jump right in and show you how collaboration is done…

Can_I_Collaborate_with_Colleagues_in_Remote_Locations_on_Bundles.png

We were inspired to write today’s post from a recent enquiry we had about Bundledocs. The user (and now client) was looking for a solution that integrated with their DMS system and allowed them to easily collaborate on bundles with colleagues in different office - without the need to travel.

 
We are looking to collaborate with colleagues in remote locations on bundles - without the need to travel to each office. Is it possible to permit people in various offices access the bundle data so we can collaboratively work on bundles?
— Bundledocs Enquiry
 

Yes. If you too are looking for a solution to help you securely collaborate with colleagues, other side counsel, clients or any third party, then Bundledocs has a solution for you. In this post we will go through Bundledocs Secure Share; Bundledocs Online Collaboration and Bundledocs Groups. Let’s get started!

Secure Share

(Electronically share your bundles in an instant)

How it works. Our Secure Share allows you share a password protected bundle with anyone - outside counsel, barristers, other side solicitor, client etc. When you share a bundle using Bundledocs, the recipient will receive two emails: The first contains a unique password and the second email contains a link to download the bundle. Use both to instantly download the bundle.

How it helps. Our Secure Share is great for anyone working with large bundles. You are no longer limited by your email limits and can now send bundles of any size to anyone. You won’t need to print and send bundles unnecessarily and can help move towards being a less-paper office. Win. Win.

Did you know? Many of our clients are now using our Secure Share feature to share the index or Table of Contents page with others. Simply generate your bundle to only include the index page and then securely share your index with others. Here’s a quick video so you can see it in action: Share Index with Others (Video).

Over the last few months we’ve added a number of new enhancements to our Secure Share feature to make it even better. It is now possible to set an expiry date for your shared bundle; set download limits and even type longer messages when sending.

Online Collaboration

(Securely collaborate on bundles with anyone)


How it works. Bundledocs Online Collaboration allows you grant access to others to view, edit and work on your bundle(s). You can grant access to any third party - you control who is allowed access and what access type they have.

How it helps. With online collaboration the days of sending bundles back and forth are over. Create one bundle and grant access to anyone that needs it. This feature is great if you need to have a number of people working on a bundle. The best bit? You don’t even need to have a Bundledocs account. It’s automatically created when you send them the invite!

Did you know? Bundledocs allows multiple users to work on the same bundle, at the same time. This is brilliant for anyone who’s working on large complex cases. It ensures that when you’re working on a particular section of your bundle, it’s locked for use to another other user.

Work in Groups

(Work together with colleagues on your bundles)

How it works. Bundledocs Team Groups allow you to work together with colleagues on your bundles. Everyone is working from the same place - regardless of which office they are in or where in the world they are.

How it helps. You don’t have to wait until the last minute to start preparing your bundles. Build up and modify as the case progresses and remove the last minute stress. Plus with everyone working from the same place you no longer have to worry about duplication. What a dream!

Did you know? Bundledocs have introduced Management Groups to help you easily manage your organisations user licences, bundles, access rights, global template and styles - and much more. If you’ve yet to introduce Management Groups in your practice, then get in touch today. We will be happy to show you how it works and offer free Admin training too.

That’s a wrap. If you’ve any other queries about Bundledocs secure share, online collaboration, team groups or management groups then make sure to contact our team. We will be delighted to show you more.
