How redaction reasons work

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 painlessly add and manage redaction reasons made on any of your documents. Here’s how it works:

  1. Add a redaction from the document viewer
  2. Select your redaction color
  3. Label using an existing redaction reason or create a new reason

Start by clicking on the left sidebar action Add Redactions or Edit redactions from your document view. Click and drag on any page to create a redaction.

Edit the color of your redaction by clicking on the redaction. Then, choose a redaction reason from the drop-down bar. 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 the Save button.
