Delivery Process Window Re-Design

Based on customer feedback we have re-designed the delivery processing windows to move away from pop-ups and adapt a simplified new design within the Lexis Advance® Quicklaw® platform. This new design eliminates pop-up messages within the delivery process protocol and improves the print, download and email process for all end users. 

Review of steps for print, download or email:

  1. Select the document(s) you are interested in
  2. Select your preferred delivery format (print, download, email … etc.). In the example below the Download option was selected.
  3. When prompted, use the tabs to customize settings. In the example below, under the Basic Options tab, the File Type selected was PDF. (Tip: Formatting Options can be used to add/remove: Cover Pages, First and Last Name on cover page and in footer; and Page Numbers).
  4. Then click on Download, Print or Email (i.e. below we are prompted to Download).
  5. A note appears in the bottom right corner in a black box indicating that the delivery option is processing.
  6. Once completed a prompt confirms completion of task, and link to the document appears in the bottom right corner of the screen.
