20 Sep Document Production in GoldFynch

GoldFynch Blog- Production in GoldFynch

Production is the final step in the e-discovery process flow. This is the action where you “produce” all the documents after review for other parties. Generally there is some agreed upon production format and standards between the parties. GoldFynch can account for most situations.

Once you are done reviewing, culling, redacting and tagging your files, you are ready to produce. Production in GoldFynch, just like everything else, is designed to be simple and is handled by a production wizard that will walk you through all the steps.

To get started click the “Production” link on the left window pane.

The tags you created for the documents as part of the review process will appear in the tags list, with the number of documents. In this case the tag being “production tag” as an example.

Step 3: Lists the most common production options.
Native : All files will be produced as they were uploaded. Meaning Word Documents will be Word Documents, emails will be emails. None of the redaction will apply to the documents. Neither will any Bates stamps be applied (next step)
One Page per PDF : With this option each page in the file will be produced as an individual PDF document
One Document per PDF: Each document, be it email, Word, Exel etc, will be produced as a PDF document
Single PDF : The entire production will be in the form of a single PDF file

Any pending productions will be under the “Incomplete Productions” heading. Any errors with productions will be detected by the GoldFynch team and you will be contacted about the fixes. The final production will be available in the form of a downloadable zip file.
