DCS - Providing copies of dcs documents to the other side as a bookmarked PDF

When you have occasion to send many documents to your opponent, for example if they are producing a hearing Bundle and you are sending them documents you require to be included, you should send the documents as a bookmarked PDF so that you have a permanent record of what was sent. 

1. Make sure that all the documents are in a DCS case and, in that that DCS case, go to the Bundle page and tap Show Bundle Pagination Options

2. On the Bundle Pagination Options page select No Page Numbers and a Page Stamping Colour of Black, 

untick Include Front Page and Index in Complete Bundle, and untick Section Numbering Restarts in Bundle, and

tick Display Document Dates in the Index, Display Section Numbers in the Index, and Display Document Numbers, as shown below    

and tap Save and Refresh Bundle. 

Note: the reason for selecting these options is to ensure that the bookmarked PDF contains all the documents in "clean" form without imposed page numbers, and that the list of documents ("Index") is separate from the bookmarked PDF.

3. On the next page, as shown below, tap Secure Sharing to email a temporary download link. First of all you should enter your own email address as the address the download link should be sent to.

4. You will then receive two emails and when you click on the links the following panel will appear. 


5. Tap on the top Complete Bundle button to download the bookmarked PDF, and then click on the Bundle Index button to to download a list of the documents, and save these two PDFs as a record of what you are sending to the other side.

6. Go back to the Secure Sharing dialogue and there should be a prompt saying Securely email the full Bundle to another email address and you should enter your opponent's email address to email a link to them so that they can download the bookmarked PDF.

7. As well as sending the bookmarked PDF to the other side in this way, you will want to send a letter or email explaining why you have sent the bookmarked PDF.
