Please note

This feature is only available to officers.

Often documents are rendered into PDF to limit the revision of the original document. To allow officers to download the file uploaded originally, please click the Download original document icon from the document online reading view.

Share permanent link to a document

It is highly recommended to use this feature to share documents, instead of copy-pasting the URL from the browser. Indeed, the browser URL includes the document title and its folder location. Should the document be moved to a different folder, the shortcut will no longer work. To get a persistent link, please use the Copy link feature that you can find in the menu on the top of the screen (depending on the size of your screen the feature can be in the collapsed menu, for this click on the burger menu to find it) .

Example of resulting URL: The base URL is similar to all documents and only the part in bold varies for each documents. 

Export documents information

Documents' metadata can be extracted using the Export CSV feature. All documents listed in that view (regardless of the selected radio buttons) will be exported with a limit of 2000 documents.
