How to Dump Discovery into NetDocuments, The Folder Import Tool

By November 8, 2018June 5th, 2022No Comments

 

The NetDocuments Upload button is great for getting small groups of documents into the program, but you can only upload documents, you cannot upload folders.  When you get a discovery or a group of documents created for someone, it is a painstaking process to go into each folder and upload the documents in it.  Thankfully, NetDocuments has a folder import tool, that allows you to select a folder and it uploads all the documents and subfolders.

As you can see from the picture above, I was able to upload the folder Opposing Counsel Production and all the subfolders in it.

Step 1:  Download the NetDocuments Folder Import Tool
