New "e-filing" Tab replaces the menu under "my doxpop" tab. Don't get lost!

On Thursday, June 22nd we will be moving Doxpop's E-filing features to their own tab. We believe you will get used to this change quickly, but it may be disorienting for the first few hours, so here is what to expect.

The most important thing to remember is that you will no longer find the e-filing features under the "my doxpop" tab:

Within the e-filing tab, you'll find the menu options that were previously under the "my doxpop" tab available through large buttons along the left side:

In the top right corner, you will find the options for locating cases to file on. All of these searches will put you directly into the e-filing screen when you locate the case.

The top search tool is for situations where you have the exact case number, and is the method you must use to locate confidential cases or appeals. This tool uses few of Doxpop's advanced search features, so we don't charge you a search to locate a case using this method, but it is less user-friendly than other approaches. As you type the case number, the system will try to determine the location automatically. This works in most situations but in counties such as Tippecanoe where two case tracking systems are in use, you may need to specify "Quest" or "Odyssey":

Moving down the right side, the second search tool is for situations where you are searching for cases by party or attorney name. This search will not return confidential cases or appeals cases, but is an easy way to quickly locate cases where you just have a name. This search uses Doxpop's advanced search features, and thus "uses" one of your allotted searches. You must begin this search by specifying the court location:

Finally, the third search tool allows you to list all cases attached to a service contact in your firm. This method of locating cases does not use one of your searches:

As always, if you have questions or would like assistance with your firm administration and service contacts, please don't hesitate to give us a call!
