Filevine’s Docs+ Combiner can be used to combine multiple files into one. Use the Docs+ Combiner to combine multiple files before upload, or to combine documents within a project’s Docs section.
The Docs+ Combiner can be found in the Docs section along the top right corner.
To combine documents, you can either select the documents in the Docs section and click on the combiner icon, or open the Combiner and select the documents from there.
On the first page of the Combiner, you will be able to either add documents from the project’s Docs section or upload them from your computer. If you are combining documents that are not in the Docs section, those documents will not appear separately in the project. They will only be present in the combined document.
You will also be able to reorder the documents as you choose by dragging and dropping or by using the move buttons beneath the listed documents. To use the move buttons, select the document in the list and click the buttons to move it either up or down as desired. If you’d like to move it all the way to the top or the bottom, you can use the “To Top” and “To Bottom” buttons.
Once you have selected and ordered your documents, click “Next.” On the next page, choose the name for the combined document and select the folder you would like it to be in. The default name of the combined document will be “Combined Doc_PROJECT NAME_Date of Combine.” The default folder will be the folder from which you began the combine job.
When the name, folder, and notification option have been chosen, click “Combine.” The documents selected for combination will be listed with a status of “success,” “pending,” or “failed.” A bar along the bottom of this module will measure the progress of the combination.
Once you reach this screen, you are free to close out of the module. The Combiner will continue the combination job, and the combined document will appear with the chosen name in the chosen folder in the Docs section when it is complete.
Single Combination Job
The Docs+ Combiner tool will combine one job at a time per project. If a combination job for a project is already in progress, opening the combiner will take you to module with the progress for the current combination job.
A job can be canceled only by the creator of the combine job or by a Filevine Admin.
If a combine job fails, the job creator will be able to view the failed job upon opening the progress window and see which documents.pdfs failed. The creator can choose to review and edit to view which pages have failed.
The creator can alternatively opt to return to start, which will take them back to the file list with the failed document highlighted, where they can review or alter the failed document and reinitiate the job.
