eDocket Subscription Service
The eDocket Subscription Service has been introduced as a way for users to subscribe
to dockets of interest. The service has been implemented using RSS, a proven technology
for distributing information over the Internet. Subscribing to a docket automatically
informs the subscriber of docket status changes, CC&N status changes, new document
filings (including decisions), and the scheduling information of key docket events
that appear in the eDocket Calendar.
Clicking on the RSS icon
will navigate to the eDocket Subscription Service. The
eDocket Subscription Service can be accessed in a few ways.
- From the home page, a hyperlink will take the user to a listing of recently created
docket feeds. From this listing, a user can navigate to a docket of interest. In
addition, users can subscribe to this listing so they can be informed whenever new
dockets are added to the database.
- From the docket search results data grid. An RSS icon appears in each row of the
data grid, and clicking on the icon will take the user to the RSS feed for the docket
- From the docket record page. An RSS icon appears at the top of the Docket record
screen, and clicking on the icon will take the user to the RSS feed for that docket.
Once a user is on the RSS feed page for a docket of interest, clicking on the “Subscribe to this feed” hyperlink will invoke a dialog box:
Click the “Subscribe” button will add that feed to the user’s browser’s RSS
feeds. In addition, if the user has Microsoft Outlook 2007, the feed will be added
there as well – in effect, this gives an Outlook 2007 user email notifications.
