You are reviewing documents that need to be redacted. When the document is produced, you need to specify the reason for the redaction on some or all of the redactions. DISCO allows you to add and manage redaction reasons made on any of your documents. Here’s how it works:
- Add a redaction from the document viewer.
- Select a redaction color.
- Label using an existing redaction reason or create a new reason.
Start by clicking Add Redactions or Edit redactions in the left panel of the document viewer. Click and drag on the page to create the redaction.
Edit the color of your redaction by clicking on the redaction. Then, choose a redaction reason from the dropdown. DISCO is pre-populated with several standard redaction reasons. However, if you do not see the reason you would like on the list, begin typing to create a new reason.
Don’t worry about the length of the redaction reason. If the redaction reason text does not fit within the redaction itself, a symbol will be created and a resizeable legend will appear at the top of the page. All redactions appear opaque when they’re produced, though the text of the redaction reason will be readable, overlaying each one where it is applied.
Once you’ve completed your redaction, click Save. To review the statistics or globally delete redaction reasons, in the main menu, click Redaction Reasons.
There are several ways to locate redacted documents and/or documents labeled with a redaction reason. On the Redaction Reasons page, click a redaction reason to find all documents labeled with that reason. Or, use one of the following search syntaxes:
- redactionreason(“text of redaction reason here”)
