Reviewing Documents

Custom Tags For Reviewing Documents

This help page will show you how to review documents that have not been reviewed by anyone, or assign certain documents to certain users. To achieve this functionality you have the following option:

Create Custom Doc Field

>Go to the Management>Manage Custom Doc Fields page
>Set up a Coding Section entitled: Reviewer
>Add custom coding fields (check-boxes) for the reviewer names (e.g. Jones, Bob)


>Go to the Browse or Search pages to code documents by checking the reviewers boxes. For example, you can use the 'Multi Doc Edit' function to review/mark one or more documents.



Large Set of Documents (Big Cases)

If you have a team of reviewers that will be added as users within your account in order to review large set of document, please go to our 'Review Teams', and also learn how to divide the documents to be reviewed.

Filtering Documents

After coding documents, you can use filters to narrow down results to a specific division or document to exclude certain files; this feature also allows you to save and share filters in Lexbe eDiscovery Platform. For example, to find documents reviewed by 'Jones, Bob' you will click on 'Select Filter>Select>Dynamic Coding>Reviewer>Bob, Jones', and then apply it.

To save and share filters, please go to the 'Filter Quick Links' section. A list of all the filters are automatically saved in the database whenever you click on the ‘Apply’ button in the Filter>Select Filters dialog box from the Browse or Search pages. This action automatically preserves the filter records on the list view under the ‘Recent’ section and creates filter hyperlinks to open specific set of documents. Please note that the default link titles are under the 'Recent Filter YYYY-DD-MM' format, but you can rename them by clicking on the ‘Edit’ hyperlink (e.g., 'Assigned Reviewer = Jones, Bob').


>To show only documents that are unreviewed, from the Browse or Search screens, open Filters>Select Filters>, select all the reviewers (custom tags or usernames) and then click on 'NOT'. This will then show unreviewed documents.





Username Filter

This option doesn't require that you create any specific tags and it will keep a log of documents reviewed by the users in the case automatically. Here are the steps:
-Go to the Browse or Search pages, click on the Filter>Select Filters hyperlink.
-Under the Discovery section, select a username to filter on the documents that user reviewed so far.


Review Tracking

The Review Tracking page allows the Admin User in the account to track the daily productivity of each reviewer and include in an Excel report. MORE

Set of Small Documents

In small cases you can reach the same results by dividing the numbers of pages for review directly from the Browse (Option 1). Below is an example of a small case in Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (2,011 documents), containing 81 pages in the Browse screen with 25 documents. (~81 x 25), so if 4 reviewers each might have around 21 pages (81/4).
