The application makes it easy to download both, folders and selected documents from a Room. Folders can be downloaded from the Folders List panel and individual documents can be downloaded from the Documents List.
In order to download folders or documents, you must have the Download PDF or Download Native permission for the folder that you wish to download or contains the documents you wish to download.

Download Produced Version of Documents
Choosing this option will download all bates-stamped produced version of the documents in the selected folder.
Recursively download all subfolders and files
If you want to download the selected folder and all its subfolders and files, make sure this option is checked. If you just want to download the selected folder and its files only, uncheck this option.
It is possible that you may not have permission to download a subfolder within the selected folder. In this case, the application will omit that folder and its content from your download.
It's not possible to download the native versions of the documents if the folder is watermarked on your User Group or the whole room is marked watermarked.
The application allows you to download specific documents from a folder. You must have the Download Native or Download PDF permission to the folder that contains the documents to download.
