Features of the Document Viewer (i.e. the ‘Docs’ view)

You will be able to find a large part of GoldFynch's review functions accessible from the Document Viewer. Here's a rundown of how they work.

Different sections of the Document Viewer

Viewing results from a search

If you ran a search for a keyword, phrase, or similar text parameter, and then opened one of the search results, the word(s) you searched for will be highlighted and an arrow will point at the line that they are found in.

Search results are highlighted in the Document Viewer

The viewer toolbar

The toolbar helps navigate through individual documents. Some basic tools are always displayed in the Document Viewer, and there are additional functions accessible by buttons at either end of the toolbar.

Basic actions

Search within the document

Document outline

If a document outline can be generated, here is how to view it:

  1. Click on the sidebar button to open it
  2. Click on the document outline tab. If possible, one will be displayed

view the document outline

Additional tools

To open the menu, click on the >> icon on the far-right side of the toolbar.

Exapanded menu

It will open a menu with a few more functions, letting you you:

Cycling through documents and search results

Once you open a file in the Document Viewer you can quickly cycle through documents in the same folder or the current set of search results by clicking on the 'Previous Document' and 'Next Document' text.

Cycle between documents in the same set of search results

NOTE: While in the Document Viewer, we recommended that you open attachments or other links (for example, those found in the File Context Panel) in new tabs so that your current position in the file review order is maintained. You can do this by either:


The Tags bar

Add and remove tags

You can quickly add or remove tags and quick tags from the tag bar just below a file's name.

Find out more about tagging files here.


Tools in the Right Action Panel

Download files

In the right panel, under the 'Downloads' section there are a few options to download the file you are viewing:

You can download an individual file in its native (original) or PDF format

Learn more about 'native' file formats in the first section of this article.

See productions that the file is included in

The productions the file is part of are listed under the 'Found in Productions' section of the right panel.

Productions the file is a part of are displayed

Note that it is possible for a file to be included in the same production many times, in both their native and non-native formats.

Find duplicates of the file

The 'Found Duplicates' section of the right panel lists (identical) duplicates of a file - even if their metadata, like names, are different - in your GoldFynch case. It also allows you to search for files by their MD5 Hash (unique identifier) values.

Duplicate of the file are highlighted

Redact information

Redaction is an important part of document review, and it is carried out in the Document Viewer. Once you have redacted information, it will still be visible and searchable for you on GoldFynch. When it is produced in a non-native format (e.g. PDF, TIFF, etc.), however, all information that is placed below a redaction box will be covered and made unsearchable.

View dates in documents and set a document’s Primary Date

Primary Dates serve as a single reference date-time for a file in GoldFynch. In the Document Viewer, the Primary Date is the one with a check mark next to it in the 'Dates' section of the right panel.

File dates

To assign a Primary Date, click on a date listed under the 'Dates' section, or enter a custom date into the box.

You can also find the 'Ingestion Date' of a file in this section. Ingestion Dates represent the date-time at which a file began uploading to GoldFynch.

Learn more about Primary Dates and Ingestion Dates here.

View extracted entities

Names, terms and other keywords are automatically extracted from documents and listed under the 'Entities' section of the right panel.

Keywords are listed here


File Context Panel

The Document Viewer’s File Context Panel helps keep track of files that are linked to each other like zip and zipped files, or emails and their attachments.

  1. Click on one of the 'file/attachment context' buttons to open the file/attachment context panel (which will either appear beside or above the document’s content, depending on which button you clicked on)
  2. Click on one of the file names in the list to go to that file in the Document Viewer View and navigate between files in a file family

Even if the ‘parent’ or one of the ‘child’ (attachment) files is moved to a different folder in your case, their relationship will be maintained and viewable from this panel.


Viewing container files

Viewing container files in the Document Viewer is slightly different than viewing other files. They don’t contain their own content to display, but you can still perform a few actions on them.

Once opened in the Document Viewer,
