Bridges Changes The EDM Inbox will display information on a case level, similar to the information presented on the Electronic Case File (ECF). The Inbox screen will display all cases for the specialist that have one or more pending electronic document tasks. All reviews submitted by the client online will be transmitted to Bridges in real-time through the web. New documents will be marked with the ! Icon.
Bridge Inbox EDD Specialists will be navigated to the Electronic Document Details (EDD) page from the Inbox when the Document Title hyperlink is clicked.
Mark Complete The checkbox on the left of the electronic document on the EDD page allows specialists to mark a document as complete. Marking the electronic document as complete and clicking the Complete button removes the document from the EDM Inbox. Warning: removing the document from the EDM Inbox does not mean the document has been processed. Specialists will still need to complete the necessary Logical Units of Work in Bridges Data Collection.
Folder Management Changes: Specialists will have the option to set up folders to manage the electronic documents received. If a specialist moves an electronic document to a folder then receives a later electronic document associated with the first electronic document, both documents will automatically be moved to the Main Inbox as an Unfiled document.
Folder Management Example On 07/03/2012 John electronically submits his DHS-1010, Redetermination Form. The specialist moved the DHS-1010 to a folder labeled Redeterminations. On 07/07/12 John electronically submits his bank statement for the Redetermination. Johns DHS-1010 and his bank statement will be automatically moved to the Main Inbox.
