Built-in Doc Fields

This page describes the fields listed under the Fields->Built-in Doc Fields section accessible from the Browse and Search pages. From the Document Viewer page, the fields are displayed under the Discovery Tab. Some of the fields are read-only and may not be changed or reordered.  

Each Built-In Field (see partial list in the screenshot above) is described below:  

Doc Id:  An internal string of numbers automatically generated to keep track of each file uploaded/processed. 

Hash MD5:  This is a read-only file that shows the hash value of loose files.  For email, the hash value is based on an email's metadata.  

Control Number:  Sequential numbers automatically assigned during a batch upload in the Platform (if the option is selected). They print on the bottom-right of a page during a Download Briefcase or Production (if the option is selected). One sequential control number is assigned for the entire document, as opposed to Bates stamping that assigns a sequence of numbers and letters for each page.

The Custom Designation tag is equivalent to the Attorney Eyes Only, Confidential, Subject to Protective Order or other special designation for confidential documents.  This tag will pull the text entered in the Custom Designation fields and print it on the lower right of a Bates stamped page once the production or download is complete.  The user must code the documents using both the Confidential and Custom Designation tags.  This field is editable.

Differences between Built-in Doc Fields and Custom Doc Fields

Built-in Doc fields are the standard sections/columns contained in the Platform.  Custom Doc Fields are sections/columns that the Admin Account User creates in a case.

Doc Id and Control Number

The user may export files based on the Doc Id or the Control Number from the Browse or Search pages using the Export->Export To Briefcase Download function.  See Control Numbers for more information. 






Extension and Original Ext

The Extension and Original Ext are left blank when the document has no extension or during a
TIFF upload. In a TIFF upload, the Extension is left blank because the documents are from a TIFF upload. This is done by design so the user is able to tell the difference between the TIFF file (an actual image file) and TIFF upload (image files of documents). If a TIFF upload contains Original files then the Extension column for those documents will be populated.
