How to Redact Court Documents

Ready to discover how to redact court documents? In today’s post we will show you how to fully redact your documents to completely remove sensitive information - and it only takes 5 steps.


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.

Why Bundledocs for Redaction?

Bundledocs has everything you need to easily redact court documents and completely remove sensitive information from your document bundle. Here are just some of the reasons to choose Bundledocs.


If you are unable to view our ‘How to Redact Confidential Information with Bundledocs‘ video then access our YouTube Channel to view it directly.

  1. Work with any document type. Bundledocs redaction is not limited to a specific document type. Easily add redactions to any document upload whether this is a pdf, word document, email, jpeg, image etc.

  2. Redact Online. Bundledocs is a browser based application which makes our redaction feature even more powerful. Now you don’t have to be sitting at your computer to redact. Grab your iPad or work on your laptop - redactions can now be made anytime, any place, on any device.

  3. Last Minute Changes? No worries. Bundledocs is incredibly flexible and works with you. As our redactions and annotations are applied to the documents themselves rather than on the completed bundle, this means you can add, remove or re-order documents and your redactions (and even comments, highlights and other annotations applied) remain intact.

How to Print a Trial Bundle Double-Sided?

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


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”.

Read CPR Updates in full here: Ministry of Justice - Civil Procedure Rules - 107th Update to the Civil Procedure Rules

3 Steps to Print Trial Bundles 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.

  • Preview and Print. That’s it. Your trial bundle is now complete and ready for double sided printing. All you need to do is press print!

If you’re not already using Bundledocs to prepare trial bundles and court bundles then get in touch. We can arrange a free online demonstration to show you how it works (and how you can create CPR compliant bundles in minutes). Prefer to give it a try and see for yourself? No problem.

New Developments - What You’ve Missed

The last few months have certainly been busy for everyone here at Bundledocs - including our Development team. They’ve been busy releasing some awesome new features that we know you’re going to love. If you missed our previous New Feature Release posts then you’re in for a treat, here’s what you’ve missed.

Custom Indexing is here. Bundledocs have introduced custom indexing so you can create bundles, binders and booklets exactly how you like - include house styles, formatting, branding - it all possible.

If you’re interested in using our custom indexing feature then get in touch and we can take you through how it works and provide you with a copy of our Custom Index User Guide so you can try for yourself.

We’ve Launched Document Manipulation. It’s now possible to seamlessly work with your documents directly from Bundledocs. You can now easily re-order pages, rotate, split, extract or even delete pages from any document uploaded to Bundledocs.

This month we’ve released a number of feature enhancements to help make our your life easier when it comes to preparing your bundles, working with users and sharing with third parties. Here are just some of the new development releases:

  • Include Bates Numbers on your Index. A new parameter has been added to our custom index vocabulary to allow you display the full bates number on your index page.

  • Produce your Bundle as a Zip File. If you are not aware, Bundledocs allow you to produce your final bundle in a zip file. This is great if you want to share your bundle documents with others - either in their original format or as converted PDFs. In our latest release, we have added another enhancement which allows you to generate a zip bundle without the names of the documents in the zip folder structure.

  • Management Groups Even More Powerful. Bundledocs Management Groups allow you to manage your organisations users, bundles and templates securely in one location. We have released a number of new enhancements to make our management groups even more powerful. You can now review and delete download invitations, more ways to notify members, manage team groups - and much much more.
