How Do I Create a Subsection with Bundledocs?

Bundledocs offers so many ways for you to order, format and customise your documents. No matter what type of bundle or document booklet you are creating, many of you will need to organise your documents into sections. But did you know you can easily create subsections and multiple sectioned bundles with Bundledocs. If you want to know how to create a subsection, then keep on reading.


How To Create a Subsection for your Bundle

Creating sections and sub-sections is really easy. We find it’s often easier to see it in action so we’ve created a short video so you can see how to create subsections in Bundledocs.

  1. Rename Section. To rename any section all you need to do is double click. This works for documents too!

  2. Create Sections. Simply use the ‘Create Section‘ button to add additional sections to your bundle. Anytime you need to create a subsection, you must first create a section, so this is where you start.

  3. Arrange Documents. If you have already uploaded documents into another section, not to worry. You can easily arrange files by dragging or dropping. We’ve even introduced our ‘Move with a Click‘ feature to make it even easier to move multiple documents at once.

  4. Create Subsection. To create a subsection, simply drag and drop the section you want to into the section above. In our example, the section above (i.e. Reports) is already open/expanded so we simply need to drag the section to the right to create our sub-section.

Remember, you can create as many sections, subsections and volumes as you need. So create your bundle early in the case and build as you go. No need to wait until the last minute.

Working with Sections: Top Tips

If you’re new to Bundledocs or simply are interested in learning more about sections and subsections, we’ve gathered together some of our top tips. You’ll be a pro in no time!

What is this new addition you ask? In short, it helps you take better control of your templates - especially when working collaboratively in groups. Now you can lock your template and make it read-only. This means other group members can still access and use the template but will be unable to edit it (that is, unless you want them to!). 

How can I mark a template as read-only?

1. Choose Template: Simply choose a template you would like to make read-only. Select the 'Edit Details' button and click the 'Advanced' tab.

2. Mark as Read-Only: Select the option 'Make this bundle read-only to groups?'. Click 'Update' to save changes. 

A handy lock icon will then appear to the right of your template so you can see at a glance any template that will be read-only to other members. Nice!
