There are two types of notes in DISCO: Document notes and privilege notes.
Document notes act like a digital sticky note on a document. Document notes, when saved, are searchable, and only viewable by those with access to the database. To search the content of a document note, use the documentnotes() search syntax (with your search term in the parentheses). To search and find all documents with a document note, use the hasdocumentnote(true) search syntax.
Privilege notes will automatically be added to the downloadable privilege log (often used to note the reason for withholding a document due to privilege).
Documents with a privilege tag, or a redaction, are also automatically added to the downloadable privilege log. To search for documents with at least one privilege tag, use the hasprivilege(true) search syntax.
To add a note to a document:
- In the document viewer, click the ACTIONS dropdown and then click Add a Note or Privilege Note.
- In either the Document Note or Privilege Note text box, enter the text of your note, and then click Save.
