Document Templates

The add-on comes with a list of document templates based on the New South Wales court documents for Uniform Civil Procedure Rules (“UCPR”). You can use these templates to complete court documents.

To create the court documents using the document templates, you will need the Actionstep plug-in for HotDocs. When creating a document using the template fields are pre-populated with information entered on the matter, saving you and your team time and reducing the likelihood of making errors.

Secure Document Exchange (SDX)

You can use Actionstep’s built-in secure portal to share your documents with your clients. You can selectively enable client access on a document-by-document basis. When a client is granted access to a matter they will receive an email with a link to login. Once they have set a password they will be able to see the documents you have granted them access to. An audit trail is maintained of all access to the documents.

This is a great way to give your clients secure access to their documents without having them phoning your firm each time they need a copy.
