If you’re on the Consignments page in List view, click the consignment you’d like to download documents from. Click Documents, then scroll down to see all the documents you have permission to view and download.
Select the documents you’d like to download. In this example, we’ll select all available documents for the consignment. Click the Download Latest Version button. Then click OK.

For bulk downloads of documents, the system is retrieving the documents from the blockchain which might take a few seconds. The process is asynchronous and the user can check back to the Notifications section when the download is ready.
