In the Certified Electronic Folder (CEF), the sections under the Case Documents Tab
have the same organization as the sections in the paper Modular Disability Folder
(MDF). Electronic documents are located in the same sections of the CEF as paper documents
would be in a MDF. The CEF Case Documents tab also includes separate sections for
Queries and Multimedia Files. At the Hearing Level, the Case Documents tab includes
a Private file only accessible to the hearing office with jurisdiction.
Upon opening the Case Documents Tab, the sections in the CEF appear in the “Collapse
All” mode. Users have the option to “Expand All” (select “Expand All”) sections or
expand sections individually (Click specific section of title bar). Expanding a section
displays column headers for the summary information about each document listed in
that section. Select any column header to sort and re-sort data in ascending (or descending)
alphabetical (or numerical) order.
NOTE: The summary information for each document is called meta-data.
