In the electronic folder (EF), 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 EF as paper documents would be in
a MDF. The EF Case Documents tab also includes separate sections for Queries and Multimedia
Files. At the Hearing Level, the Case Documents tab includes a Private File section
only accessible to the hearing office with jurisdiction.
Upon opening the Case Documents Tab, the sections in the EF appear in the “Collapse
All” mode. Users have the option to “Expand All” (select “Expand All”) sections or
expand individual sections (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.
The summary information for each document is known as meta-data.
