Barcodes associate documents with a specific case. Specifically, the barcode identifies
the document type, identifies the section of eView in which the document is filed
and provides specific information (i.e., metadata) about the document. Generating
a barcode creates a cover sheet that is used when faxing the document into the CEF.
Each document (not each page within a document) requires a barcoded cover sheet. If you have multiple
documents of the same type (e.g., two DQB-prepared letters), each one requires a separate
barcoded cover sheet. The information displayed on the barcoded cover sheet ensures
that the document following the barcoded cover sheet is associated with the case identified
in the barcode (i.e., when the barcoded cover sheet and the document are faxed together).
Take the following steps to create the barcoded cover sheet:
Open the Case Documents tab in eView.
At the bottom of this screen, select the Create Barcode button.
The Create Barcode screen appears. This screen provides a list of documents and indicates
the corresponding MDF section.
Complete this screen, and then select the OK button.
NOTE: If you have a non-eForm electronic document or paper document that does not correspond
to one of the listed document types, chose MDF-Miscellaneous as the document type
and follow local guidelines to determine the appropriate MDF section. For these MDF
documents, it is also important to include complete metadata in the Form Specific
Information fields so the document will be clearly described.
The Print screen appears. Select the OK button to print out the barcoded cover sheet.
