01 May Search By Date Range

Take advantage of the advanced GoldFynch date identification capabilities to search for documents via date ranges. During the processing process GoldFynch automatically scans all documents for mentions of dates. It can identify a number of different date formats, e.g. April 2002, 04/01/2002 etc. You can now search for all the documents that fall within a certain range by simply entering the range of dates in this format in the search bar- "Start Date" - "End Date" . The start and end dates can be in any date formatting. We have some examples below. Remember when typing into the search bar...

13 Apr Redaction in GoldFynch

Redaction (also called sanitization) in GoldFynch refers  to the process of removing sensitive information from a document prior to production. In GoldFynch redactions on a document can be made from the "Docs View", by clicking on the "Start Redacting" button on the right side of the panel. Redactions are currently done by drawing a box around the text that needs to be redacted         In the produced document the block of sensitive text will be hidden by a black box. The underlying text will be removed and is not recoverable from the produced document. Within GoldFynch, the redacted portion will appear as a translucent...

29 Mar Load files: What are they? And do we still need them?

Simply put, a load file is a really well organized text file. It contains information related to the connections between individual data elements and their corresponding slots in a database.  In general data are the various documents that make up electronic discovery. The database is an organized summary of that data.  Data and Databases Data is usually disorganized and in multiple formats (PDF, TIF, MS Office, emails etc). Think of it as a shopping basket filled with apples, oranges, bananas and limes. The database, on the other hand, is very rigidly structured. You can’t just drop data anywhere you like in a database....

15 Feb Tagging Files

Think of a tag as a stamp or a sticky note on a file. It provides an additional method to categorize or call attention to individual documents or groups of files, but it doesn't affect the way the file is used in the GoldFynch app at all. You have the freedom to name your tags whatever you want, and there is no limit to the number of tags you can apply. You can tag an individual file when viewing it in Doc View and clicking +Add underneath the document title, as shown in the example below. Or, you can apply tags to groups...

07 Feb Refine Your Search Using “Snippets”

You can now refine your search based on “snippets” of each result. "Snippets" are brief excerpts of a file that show up below the search results. The purpose is to provide context for your results within each document. When you select a file based on a “snippet”, GoldFynch opens that file and automatically navigates to the location of that particular “snippet” within the file. As you can see in the example below, all other search results are also highlighted within the selected document....

Don't worry, you can still upload files by dragging them directly...
