Production Log

When creating a production set, the original file names are replaced with a Bates number sequence, which can make 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.

Filtering and searching for files in the Production Log

You can search for files in the text filter bar (shown in the image below). As you type into the bar, the production log will interactively highlight and filter files, reducing the displayed entries to names and Bates ranges of near matches to what you have typed in the filter bar.
