What is a Production Log?

When creating a production set, the original file names are replaced with a Bates number sequence, which can made it cumbersome to locate the original file. The opposing party only has access to the Bates number and will only reference content based on the Bates. GoldFynch's production log feature makes it easy to cross-reference back to the original file from the Bates number with just one click.

Here is how it works

When you create a production set in GoldFynch, a log is created. The log is an interactive listing of all the files that are contained in the production set. In this log, you can filter through the names of files, see if the file has any redactions, and click to open the original file.

Access Production Log

3. From the list of productions, click on the Production log icon against the production whose log you want to view

How to access the Production log

The production log will open in a tab alongside the Production Wizard, Past Productions and Control Parameters tabs. Once in the production log, the listing of files is available along with:
