Unitization and Other User-Requested Features

A new release is live! We’re adding to the enhancements we recently made to metadata, to further improve your review. All of these updates are born of user requests: you told us what would make your work easier, and we implemented it. We told you we were listening!

With this release, you can now:

1) Break apart compound documents into units (Unitization)

At times, you may receive productions in a less-than-ideal state. Separate documents may be lumped together into one big compound file, making it impossible to work with them. Today, we’re releasing logical unitization: this feature makes it easy to break up a production into individual “units” or documents. Two things that make it great:

  1. It reduces workload: Because this feature is built directly into our platform, there’s no need to have giant productions processed separately before being loaded in for review: our platform does it all.
  2. It streamlines workflow: Instead of fighting opposing counsel for a better production format, now you can dive straight into review and unitize as you go.

2) Search for highlighted documents by color

You can already search for documents in your corpus with highlights on them: by who created the highlight or when the highlighting was done. Now, you can also search by the color of those highlights! No more manually searching for a file that has a pink highlight!

3) Spot grouped documents more easily in search results

In search results, we already show search hits and their related documents – like other emails in a thread or child documents. However, you told us that italics weren’t easy to spot immediately, especially after a few hours of review. Now, documents related to your search results are shown in a different color text and their row numbers show their relation – making it easy to spot them at a glance.

4) Print a single page from the review window

You can already print a document from your review window. But what if you only want to print a single page of your document? You told us that this would be helpful, so now you can. No need to mess with printer settings or waste paper!

5) Maintain zoom when switching between natives

When you’re reviewing a certain type of native, you may want to zoom in or out for all files of that type. In the past, your screen would stay zoomed when you moved from page to page in one native document, but it would revert to 100% when you moved on to the next native. Now, you don’t have to re-set your zoom settings on each subsequent native file, saving time and removing frustration!


6) Display end bates in search results

Begin bates is already a default column in your search results table. You told us that it would be nice to see “End Bates” as a column, rather than having to calculate it based on Begin Bates and the number of pages in the document. Now, it’s easy to add End Bates as a column in your search results table.

7) Search for partial Social Security Numbers

We already provide an easy way to search for numbers that resemble Social Security numbers across your document set. You can set up a case-wide highlight for numbers in the format ###-##-####, to make it easy to review and redact them. You told us that you also want to be able to find Social Security numbers when they are already partially-hidden for privacy reasons: in the format XXX-XX-####. Now, you can easily find these partial SSNs, so you can fully redact them as well.
