Uploading Documents

Documents can be added to specific case files in MerusCase by specifying the case file’s ID in the request. Supported file types include PDF, DOCX, RTF and others. All documents will receive the “Document” activity tag in each case’s Activity tab, as well as any additional tags you choose to include. If you enter an activity description, it will likewise be included.
