Simple productions

Producing documents doesn’t have to be hard.

Producing in Disco: pick tags, Bates stamps, confidentiality stamps, format, and go!

Producing in Disco: pick tags, Bates stamps, confidentiality stamps, format, and go!

Disco’s production interface presents only the options lawyers actually care about. Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick the documents you want to produce using tags. Disco defaults to producing all documents tagged responsive, but not any documents that have a privilege tag. As you change your selections of tags to include in or exclude from the production, the plain English sentence underneath the tag selection boxes updates so that you can always see exactly what you’re doing.
  2. Next, pick your Bates prefix and starting number. These default to the last prefix you used and the next number.
  3. If you have confidentiality stamps to apply, click “Add a Stamp” and then pick the tag and the exact text from your protective order for the stamp. You can add as many of these as you need. For example, you can stamp every document tagged “Confidential” with the text “Highly Confidential” and every document tagged “AEO” with the text “Highly Confidential — Attorneys’ Eyes Only.”
  4. Finally, pick a production format. We support the industry-agreed EDRM format as well as legacy Concordance and Summation formats and native-only exports. Our productions load into all modern review tools that the other side might be using — although of course they should use Disco! — and meet the requirements of, for example, the SEC or DOJ.
  5. Click “Create,” see the production begin to run, and receive an email when it’s complete and ready for download. If it’s too big to download over your Internet connection (> 100 gb or so), you can ask Disco operations to ship you an encrypted drive with the contents.

That’s it. That’s how productions should be.
