Q: How do I avoid production duplication? (Rolling Productions)

Rolling Productions (after 1 production as already been ran):

If you have already ran a production but now have had more documents added to your database that also need to be produced, here is how you would run your search to only produce the documents that have not been already produced. 

1.) First go to the productions page by clicking on 'Create', then 'Productions'. On that page you will be able to see the production you have previously ran.

2.) Click on 'Search for produced documents (# of documents)' (in blue) on the bottom right corner of the production.

3.) You will notice production(production/1) is already inserted into the search bar on the review page with the documents from the production you selected displayed as the results. 

 

4.) In order to search for ALL OTHER documents NOT included in the production, you would run a search as such: * % (production(production/1))

This search is telling DISCO to search for ALL documents, BUT NOT documents produced in that particular production. Therefore, you would run this search to produce documents you have ingested into your database AFTER your initial production has already been ran (rolling productions).

5.) Once you have ran this search you may run a mass tag to tag these documents and produce 'By tag' or save the search and run your production'By saved search'.

Rolling Productions (after 2 or more productions): 

If you have already ran 2 or more productions but now have had more documents added to your database that also need to be produced, here is how you would run your search to only produce the documents that have not been already produced.

1.) Go to the productions page, click on 'Search for produced documents' located on the bottom right corner of each production to find out what the search syntax will be for each production. The search syntax for a production will always be "production(production/#)" but you will have to double check to see what number will be connected to each specific production by selecting 'Search for produced documents'.

[Side Note: You may be wondering why productions are not numbered sequentially. The answer is they are; however, a number is assigned to a production ONLY ONCE, meaning if you run a production and select 'Search for produced documents' and see the search syntax on the review page is "production(production/1)" but you later decide to delete this production, the next production WILL NOT be given the number 1. If you delete a production, the number assigned to that production will also be deleted.]

2.) After you have figured out what the search syntax for each production, you will list them in the search bar on the review page. For this example, I will use "production(production/1)" and "production(production/2)".

3.) In order to search for ALL OTHER documents NOT included in the productions, you would run a search as such: * % (production(production/1) (production(production/2)).

This search is telling DISCO to search for ALL documents, BUT NOT documents produced in those particular productions. Therefore, you would run this search to produce documents you have ingested into your database AFTER your initial productions have already been ran (rolling productions).

4.) Again, once you have ran this search you may run a mass tag to tag these documents and produce 'By tag' or save the search and run your production'By saved search'.
