TRIAL DIRECTOR Display Settings

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery  Trial is a beast; and sometimes tips, tricks and settings in TRIAL DIRECTOR get left behind.  As always, we have a course and content to help you out! Today’s focus is on settings. Display settings and best practices can be easily forgotten when dealing with the tremendous amounts of detail that Trial requires. What are some great recommended settings?    Set your monitor resolution to 1920x1080 with 100% scaling. This shou

Finding the Starting Line

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery As we all have heard, the volume of data being generated is growing exponentially. Now more than ever before, the Legal community, is facing eDiscovery technology deficits, new demands, changed protocols, and so much more. These dramatic shifts require serious adjustments to our existing approaches. While it was never a simple task, Discovery didn’t necessarily require complex protocols or identifications in the past.  Most conversations with the oppo

LOCAL DISCOVERY: Bulk Deletion in Utilities

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery  Issues happen. Whether you imported the documents into the wrong case or just need to get some junk out, there are better ways than deleting record by record in Review. Have you tried bulk deleting records from your database in Case Management or Administration? Build a search or select your document range for deletion. For best practices, you will need to repair and rebuild your case after you have deleted records. Best practice calls for a repair a

How to Decide Between Self-Guided Courses or Webinars

By Kelly Lyons, IPRO Learning Experience Team  When you first visit the Learning Center, one of the first things you may notice is the wide array of training types to choose from. IPRO recognizes that there is no single instructional style that will work best for every person and situation as everyone learns differently. We have developed our offerings accordingly, creating self-guided courses, and webinars to serve our customers’ needs. Although you might wonder what each kind of inst

Create a Secondary Processing Case for Bates PDFs

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery  As an administrator of Open Discovery (fka discovery ][ Enterprise), it is common to receive already processed data in the form of PDFs named per Bates Number. It is helpful to keep this data in the grid and be able to search for it efficiently. Best case is that the Bates Number becomes the BegDoc number but how do we accomplish this?  Well, today is your lucky day! In this Workflow Wednesday piece, we will wa

By Brittany Thaler & Tiffany Hudson  This week, I interviewed Tiffany Hudson, Client Success Manager, who joined IPRO from the State of Alaska, Department of Law.

Bulk Tagging in Utilities

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery  If you are like me, then you LOVE tags.  I mean, I live by tags, everything has a tag. When you live like this, you need quick and concise ways to tag your documents.  My secret sauce: Bulk Tagging in Utilities.

Try this on incoming productions to see

Here at IPRO, we recognize these challenges, and we want to make sure you’re set up for success. To help guide you through the early days, we’ve carefully developed a consistent and comprehensive onboarding process, designed

Fact Management Wildcards

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery  Facts have dates. But what are those dates? How do you enter the date for a 2019 Proforma or the 2021 Q3 Sales Report? As paralegals, we have created out own shorthand and standardization, but what happens when the case is a legacy matter, or you share with others? Sticky situations and incomplete searches sometimes occur.  In Fact Management, we have come up with a solution to prevent this issue from occurring: Wild Cards! Check out some of the

Discovery ][ Enterprise: Media Attachment in Media Manager

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery  Best practice says to keep a valid chain of custody for our media and storage files.  Are you doing this in Media Manager? If so, are you adding necessary details to keep that chain of custody valid and informative?  Would you be able to find that physical device in, let’s say, 5 years?   Media Manager allows Administrators to attach images and other attachments (like a shipping manifest).  For us at IPRO, we recommend using these options e

TrialDirector Presenting Documents

To ease your practice and pull up documents with ease, the Learning Experience Team has some recommendations for you:   Set standardized naming conventions for your Item ID, Exhibit Number, and Trial Exhibit Number fields.  If you have a standardized way of entering information into Evidence, that muscle memory will translate with ease onto Presentation.

Production Documents and Your Database

By Brittany Thaler, ACP eDiscovery    We all know that when we produce items in discovery ][ Local, we can automatically have our bates range, or production numbers, populate in a ProdBegNo and  ProdEndNo field. What do we do about documents that are produced to us though?    Many use the typical workflow of using the BegNo field as a bates range field for these documents and having to search on several fields to encompass all produced documents in the matter. This can be
