Import Module

The Import Module creates, manages, and deletes imports for the project. Imports running on the current machine are represented in the Import Module Navigation pane with the 60391a8a85a21.png icon. After an import has successfully been ingested into the project, the import is represented in the Module Navigation with the 60391a8cb5c68.png icon. All controls in the Imports Ribbon are based on the active or selected import. To select an import simply click on the import in the Import Module Navigation which will bring up the import's snapshot as well as highlight the import in blue.

Importing Data into a Project
60391a9346ec2.png
  1. New Import – Click the New Import button in the Import Ribbon to launch the Import Data form.

  2. Import Path – Browse to the top level folder of the source data by clicking the 60391a955a0f6.png button and choose the source folder.

  3. Import Timezone – By default, the timezone is set to the local timezone of the machine. If the data was collected in a different timezone, click the 60391a96bfe45.png drop-down menu and choose the timezone according to the location of the collection.

    Note

    At this point the data can be imported without any other settings by clicking the Import Selection button in the Imports Ribbon.

  4. Import Details – There are two types of additional details that can be added to an import:

    • Media Info – If the import is located on a hard drive, enter the hard drive’s serial number, model number, and the manufacturer of the hard drive to track the hard drive. A description of the data can also be added to help better track the data. This information can be recalled later in the Reports Module.

      Note

      This information can be edited or added after an import completes by clicking the Edit Import Properties button in the Imports Ribbon.

    • Sender Information – To track the sender of the data, enter the contact’s information. Click the 60391a9876f98.png button to upload the Chain of Custody. This information can be recalled later in the Reports Module.

  5. New Custodian – To create a new Custodian click the New Custodian button in the Imports Ribbon and the form below will appear. There are two types of Custodians that can be created. Each Custodian requires the input of a Custodian Prefix. One of the settings in Export is Custodian Prefix Incremental when it comes to numbering the files. This will add the Export Prefix onto the number for files pertaining to the Custodian within any scope.

    60391a9ac4338.png
    • Person – This is the default Custodian Type. The minimum information for a Person Custodian is the First Name and Last Name. After filling out the New Custodian form, click OK, and the 60391a9d3aa22.png icon will appear in the Module Navigation and the Custodian Management section within the module form.

    • Entity – The other Custodian Type is Entity. This Custodian Type allows for only one name if necessary. To create an Entity Custodian, click the Custodian Type drop-down, change it to Entity, and enter the Entity Name. After filling out the New Custodian form, click OK, and the 60391a9d3aa22.png icon will appear in the Module Navigation and the Custodian Management section within the module form.

  6. Import Custodian Assignment – If the import belongs to one or more Custodian(s), the data can be assigned to the Custodian(s) automatically by clicking the 60391aa0a597d.png drop-down menu and choosing the applicable Custodian(s). To expand the import pathing structure, click the 60391aa1bb8f0.png button. If it is preferred to assign the data to the Custodian(s) after the data is imported, the default Unassigned Custodian and assigned within the Custodian Management Module after the import completes.

  7. Import Selection – Click the Import Selection button in the Import Ribbon to import all of the data under the source folder.

  8. Pause Import – This will pause the import, so that the import can be resumed later. There are several reasons to pause an import, but the two most common reasons are to start importing data that has priority over the suspended data.

  9. Resume Import – This will resume any import that was suspended or interrupted abruptly.

  10. Refresh – Click the Refresh button in the Import Ribbon to refresh the Imports Module to show new imports as well as to update the import group’s statistics.

After Importing Data into a Project
60391aa42b18c.png
60391aa79640b.png
  1. Import Status – The import Status chart displays counts for all import items which are not successfully completed. The chart updates every 10 seconds and reports on the tasks for the import job, broken down by the following categories:

    • Copy – The copying of a source file into the project.

    • Archive – Decompressing of unique archives within the import.

    • Hidden Content – The evaluation of hidden content on original documents within the import.

    • Password Bank – The attempt to decrypt unique password protected documents within the import with the provided passwords.

    • OCR – OCR processing of unique documents within the import when OCR during import is enabled.

    • Indexing/Language ID – The indexing and/or language identification for generated OCR text and Extracted text from unique documents within the import.

  2. Import Snapshot – After the import has completed processing the Import Snapshot will be populated with a bar graph containing the following measurements:

    • Source Files – This is the number of files imported into Discovery Manager before processing. This number should mirror the total number of files on the import media. It allows QC to make sure that the number of files imported into Discovery Manager before processing is the same number of files that was on the source media.

    • Expanded Files – Total number of files (source files and archive children) after processing prior to any data filtering.

    • Archives – Total number of completed and errored archives contained within the import.

    • Errored Archives – Total number of errored archives in the import.

    • Filtered Files – Total number of files filtered out of the project due to project level filters.

    • Project Files – Total number of files contained within the project after processing and filtering.

    • Duplicates – Total number of duplicates contained within the import.

    • Indexed – Total number of successfully indexed files within the Project Files. These are the files that are available for searching within the index. A file can have both electronic and OCR text. If the file has one or more of these text types, the file will be considered Indexed and one or both text files will be indexed for searching.

    • OCR Success – Total number of files that successfully completed the OCR process within the import.

    • OCR Errors – Total number of files that errored during the OCR process within the import.

    • OCR Pending – Total number of files that are potentially scanned within the project. This will consist of all TIFF images as well as image based PDF files.

    • Non-Indexable Files – Total number of files where text extraction will not be attempted as Reveal believes no usable text will be generated from these file types. For a complete listing of these files please see Appendix B. These files will not be available for searching.

    • Encrypted – Total number of files identified as encrypted or password protected and that do not have text extracted. These files can be decrypted by using the Password Bank. Please see the Import Module for directions on how to do this. If these files are not decrypted, they will not be available for searching.

    • Index Errors – Total number of files where both text extraction and OCR has failed. These files will not be available for searching.

    • File Recognition Errors – Total number of unrecognizable file types contained within the import. These files will not be available for searching.

  1. Imports Module Navigation – Each import has an icon, import path/ID, and a tree view. The following explains the different import icons and their meaning:

    • Import Icons

      • 60391aa9efafe.png Successful Import

        • After the import has completed processing successfully, the Successful Import icon will be displayed in the Imports Module Navigation. Double click on the Successful Import icon and Import Snapshot as well as Import Data under the Module’s Form are repopulated with the information from the import.

      • 60391aab81990.png Paused Import

        • To suspend an import while it is processing click the Pause Import button in the Import Ribbon. This will suspend the import at that moment in time. After an import has been suspended the Paused Import icon will be displayed for the import in the Imports Module Navigation. To resume a suspended import, click on the Paused Import icon and then click on the Resume Import button in the Import Ribbon.

      • 60391aad67214.png In Progress Import

        • If an import is in progress, the In Progress Import icon will be displayed in the Imports Module Navigation. Another scenario where this icon would be displayed in the Imports Module Navigation is if the import errors out during processing owing to the shutting down of Discovery Manager via the Task Manager or an unexpected interruption. To resume a suspended import, click on the In Progress Import icon and then click on the Resume Import button in the Import Ribbon.

      • 60391aaf20f5a.png Import Missing Files

        • If the native file could not be copied from the source data to the processing folder, the Import Missing Files icon will be displayed in the Imports Module Navigation. Typically, this issue is seen when the antivirus is not properly configured on the Discovery Manager workstation or there were unforeseen network hiccups.

          • When this happens please contact support@revealdata.com. Depending on the number of affected files this issue can be recoverable with the help of the Reveal Technical Support Team. If the issue is deemed non-recoverable the underlying issue will be resolved by the Reveal Technical Support Team and the import will need to be deleted and reimported again.

      • 60391ab1bb636.png Import Error

        • If a major error occurs during the import, the Import Error icon will be displayed in the Imports Module Navigation. An example is where Discovery Manager cannot extract a proper date for the file(s).

          • When this happens please contact support@revealdata.com. Depending on the number of affected files this issue can be recoverable with the help of the Reveal Technical Support Team. If the issue is deemed non-recoverable, the underlying issue will be resolved by the Reveal Technical Support Team and the import will need to be deleted and reimported.

    • Import Path/ID – Next to each import is the assigned Import ID (this is automatically created by Discovery Manager) as well as the Import Path of the source data.

    • Import Tree View – Expand the tree view and the following data is displayed:

      • Machine – This is the machine that processed the data.

      • Original Size – This is the original size of the imported data in megabytes preprocessing.

      • Total Size – This is the total size (original size + the size of the extracted archive children) of the data imported in megabytes post processing.

      • Date Imported – This is the date the data was imported.

      • Import Duration – This is the total time in minutes it took to import the data. This value is rounded down, so if an import took less than a minute to process, it will display 0 minutes.

  1. Edit Import Properties – To edit the Media Information or Sender Information after an import completes click the Edit Import Properties button in the Imports Ribbon.

    Note

    The Serial Number, Model Number, Manufacturer, and Description fields are exportable fields in the Export Module. Whatever values are provided in these fields can be exported (MEDIASERIAL, MEDIAMODEL, MEDIAMANUFACTURER, MEDIADESCRIPTION) into the resulting DAT file on the file level to any file within the import. If there is custom information that needs to be exported on the file level for an import such as an internal media tracking number this is where it could be added.

  1. QC – To resolve all import exceptions click the QC button. More detailed information is below in the Import QC section.

  2. Archive Explorer – Displays all processed archives in the import.

  1. Delete Import – To delete an import first click on the import in the Imports Module Navigation and then click the Delete Import button in the Imports Ribbon.

    Note

    This will not delete all files from the project’s processing folder for the import. Under no circumstances should a user ever manipulate or delete any folders within the processing folder of an active project, so do not delete the import’s corresponding folder in the project’s processing folder. Please contact Reveal Technical Support with any questions about deleting import material.

Import QC

Import QC allows a user to identify, track, resolve, and report on all archive and file level exceptions. The Import QC workflow is explained in detail below. The end goal of Import QC is to fix exceptions or clear them, so that all exceptions are found within QC Cleared. There is nothing to prevent a user from exporting file exceptions even if they are not in QC Cleared, but what follows is the recommended workflow. Any files that are moved to QC Cleared can have a comment associated with them which can be analyzed in Previews and/or exported as a field in the Export Load File.

Note

Import QC removes duplicates to streamline the exception handling process. This is important to understand as the Import Project Snapshot might show a higher number of archive errors than presented in the user interface.

Import QC Workflow
60391ab625012.png

Within the Import QC Module, the QC Flags provide both the workflow and the navigation for scoping or filtering the QC Documents Table. The top-level QC Flags or Categories are

  • Processing Exceptions,

  • Attempted Exceptions,

  • Reprocessing, and

  • QC Cleared.

Beneath each Category are the Subcategories File Exceptions and Archive Exceptions. When each of these items is selected, the QC Documents Table will display these exception items.

Upon entering Import QC for the first time, all exceptions will be found in Processing Exceptions. These are exceptions that have not been reprocessed once. When File Exceptions or Archive Exceptions are selected, the QC Documents Table will display the items and is grouped by the QCFlagCategory field, followed by the Super Type field. The QCFlagCategory field represents an exception reason, whereas the Super Type groups the files underneath them by their general file type (i.e. SYSTEM FILE, WORD PROCESSING, etc.). Files can immediately be moved to QC Cleared by the user, or they can be added to a QC Batch and reprocessed, sending the files to the QC Flag Reprocessing.

After the QC Batch finishes reprocessing, the archives or files within the QC Batch that reprocess successfully will automatically move to QC Cleared -> System -> File or Archive Exceptions. The files that unsuccessfully reprocess will automatically move to Attempted Exceptions -> File or Archive Exceptions. When the Subcategories of File Exceptions or Archive Exceptions are selected, the QC Documents Table is grouped by QCCount followed by QCFlagCategory, followed by QCFlagCategory. The QCCount field is incremented by 1 for a file or archive every time it is reprocessed. This field allows users to track the number of reprocess attempts on the archive or file.

Finally, the Attempted Exceptions can be moved to QC Cleared by User, treating the item(s) as an exception. A custom QC Comment can be applied to these archives or files when moved to QC Cleared. When archives or files are selected within QC Cleared -> User, the QC Documents Table is grouped by QCComment followed by SuperType. When archives or files are selected within QC Cleared -> System, the QC Documents Table is grouped by SuperType.

By default, archives are not exported out of the system, but can be given a new file type so that they can be exported out if desired. File exceptions on the other hand will be exported out of the system.

Launching Import QC

Import QC can be launched directly from the Projects, Imports, or Selective Set Modules within the Discovery Manager by clicking the Launch Import QC button.

Note

Archive exceptions will not be displayed in an Import QC session launched via a Selective Set.

All tables, tabs, etc. within QC are undockable/dockable. To move any tab around within the user interface, click on a tab and drag it to the desired location. For example, in Import QC it may be desired to have the QC Document table take up the entire screen, or to have it on a different screen altogether. To do this, click on the QC Documents tab and move it out of Import QC.

Quality Checking an Import
60391ab8a73eb.png
  1. Category – The QC workflow has 4 top level categories. Each top-level category also contains subcategories of File Exceptions and Archive Exceptions. When a user clicks on one of these subcategories, the QC table will be restricted to the view of just those files. As files are worked on in QC, they will be moved from one category to another depending on the action taken on the file. The following gives a breakdown of the categories:

    • Reprocessing Exceptions – All original exceptions within the QC session that have not been reprocessed once. When File Exceptions or Archive Exceptions are selected, the QC Documents Table will display these items, and is grouped by the QCFlagCategory field followed by the Super Type field. The QCFlagCategory field represents an exception reason, whereas the Super Type groups the files underneath them by their general file type (i.e. SYSTEM FILE, WORD PROCESSING, etc.).

      • File Exceptions QCFlagCategory Definitions – The following lists the QCFlagCategory definitions for File Level Exceptions. The QCFlagCategory field is a multivalue field that will display more than one value if applicable except for PASSWORD PROTECTED, UNRECOGNIZED, or ZERO KB.

        • ATTACHMENTS – These are files where the attachments failed to properly extract for the file.

          Note

          When analyzing Archive or File Level Exceptions with the QCFlagCategory ATTACHMENTS, it is recommended to use the ChildCount (the actual number of files/attachments extracted) and ExpectedChildCount (the expected number of files/attachments extracted) fields in the QC Documents Table.

        • METADATA – These are files where the metadata failed to properly extract for the file.

        • OCR – These are files that errored during OCR. Files will only have this QC Flag Category after OCR has been attempted on the file.

        • PASSWORD PROTECTED – These are files that are password protected.

          Note

          If a file is PASSWORD PROTECTED, this is the only QCFlagCategory that will be displayed.

        • TEXT – These are files where the text failed to properly extract for the file.

        • UNRECOGNIZED – These are files that were unrecognized thus they are either junk or corrupt files.

          Note

          If a file is UNRECOGNIZED, this is the only QCFlagCategory that will be displayed.

        • ZERO KB – These are 0 KB files.

          Note

          If a file is ZERO KB, this is the only QCFlagCategory that will be displayed.

      • Archive Exceptions QCFlagCategory Definitions – The following lists the QCFlagCategory definitions for Archive Exceptions. The QCFlagCategory field is a multivalue field that will display more than one value if applicable except for PASSWORD PROTECTED or ZERO ITEMS EXTRACTED.

        • ACTUAL/EXPECTED MISMATCH – Archives that failed to extract the exact number of parent items.

        • CHILD RELATED ERRORS – Archives that failed to extract attachments from parent items. This will only show for NSF files on the archive level. This reflects a scenario where the User ID file is necessary to extract the attachments from the parent items. In this scenario, the parent items will still show up under ATTACHMENTS.

        • PASSWORD PROTECTED – Archives that are password protected.

        • ZERO ITEMS EXTRACTED – Archives where 0 items were extracted from the archive.

        • ARCHIVE ERRORS – Archives with generic errors. When this QCFlagCategory is encountered, if the archive is sent to support@revealdata.com it can be investigated to see if a new QCFlagCategory is necessary for the archive, or if it can fall underneath one of the predefined QCFlagCategory values.

          Note

          If an archive is PASSWORD PROTECTED or ZERO ITEMS EXTRACTED, this is the only QCFlagCategory that will be displayed.

    • Attempted Exceptions – All original exceptions that have been unsuccessfully reprocessed at least once will automatically move to Attempted Exceptions -> File or Archive exceptions. When File Exceptions or Archive Exceptions are selected, the QC Documents Table will display these items, and is grouped by QCCount followed by QCFlagCategory, followed by QCFlagCategory. The QCCount field is incremented by 1 for a file or archive every time it is reprocessed. This field allows users to track the number of reprocess attempts on the archive or file.

    • Reprocessing – All original exceptions that are currently being reprocessed.

    • QC Cleared – When exceptions are reprocessed successfully, they will automatically be moved to QC Cleared -> System. If a user moves an exception to QC Cleared, the item(s) will be moved to QC Cleared -> User. When moving files to QC Cleared -> User, a custom comment can be added to the file(s), and can be analyzed in Preview or used as a field in the Export Load File. These comments can be edited after the files are moved to QC Cleared as well. Files moved to QC Cleared are organized into the following two categories:

      • System – Exceptions that were successfully reprocessed by the system.

      • User – Exceptions that were moved to QC Cleared by the user.

  2. QC Documents Table – The QC Documents table is used to navigate file by file within QC. To view a file within the viewer, click on the row in the table and the file’s Errors, Extracted Text, Images, Metadata and File Properties will be displayed in the viewer. The up and down keys can be used to go to the previous/next file. To see the available settings, right click on the table column headers and the following form will appear:

    60391abb40be0.png
    • Sort – To sort the table by a particular column, click the column header or right click on the column headers and choose Sort Ascending or Sort Descending.

    • Group By – To group the table by a particular column, drag and drop that column above the column headers or right click on the column headers and choose Group By This Column. To clear a grouping right click next to the field the table is grouped by and choose UnGroup.

      60391abe82b2a.png

      Note

      As described above, the QC Documents table will be automatically grouped by certain fields, depending on the Category/Subcategory the user selects.

    • Column Management – To add or remove columns within the table, click Column Chooser and a listing of all available fields will be displayed. To add the field as the last field in the table, double click on the field. To add the field to a certain location in the table, drag and drop the field to the desired position.

    • Filter Preview Table – To filter the QC Documents table, click on the Filter Editor and the following form will appear:

      60391ac150811.png
  3. QC Viewer – The QC Viewer has separate views of the file that is selected in the QC Documents table:

    • Errors – This is the error message(s) associated with the file.

    • Extracted Text – This is the electronic text associated with the file.

    • OCR Text – This is the OCR text associated with the file.

    • Images – This is the image(s) associated with the file.

    • Metadata – This is the metadata associated with the file.

    • File Properties – These are the file properties associated with the file.

      Note

      The button for any of the above views may be clicked and dragged out of the QC Viewer to a separate window which may be pinned to the QC workspace.

  4. QC Workflow – To move a file(s) in the QC workflow click the checkbox 60391ac2dd938.png next to the file(s) in the QC table and click the applicable QC Workflow button.

    • Move to QC Cleared – The purpose of moving files to QC Cleared is to add the custom comment to the files. For example, if a file is within the System Files ZERO KB, no text will be extracted from the file as it is 0 kilobytes, so this file could be moved to QC Cleared with the comment ‘0 KB Files’. This comment field can be used to group or analyze files in Preview as well as a field within the DAT file at export time. To move files to QC Cleared, select the files(s), and click the Move to QC Cleared button.

    • Move to QC – If a file needs to go through QC again (i.e. from QC Cleared to Processing Exceptions), select the file(s), and click the Move to QC button.

    • Edit QC Comment – To edit the comments applied to files moved to QC Cleared, select the file(s), and click the Edit QC Comment button.

    • Add To Batch – The typical workflow to add exception items to a QC Batch is to select one or more items in the QC Documents table, click the Add To Batch button, and click OK. This form has other settings that can be used during this process as well. These settings have different implications when archive exceptions are added to a batch versus a file exception for some of the sections. The differences and settings are described below.

      60391ac4d1f46.png
      • Selected Documents Table – This table provides a listing of the files that will be reprocessed in the batch. This table has the same functionality as the QC Documents table.

      • New File Type – The New File Type/Incorrect Recognition provides the user the ability to apply a new file type to a file. There are typically two different scenarios for doing this based on file/archive exceptions:

        • File Exceptions – For file exceptions, this section is typically used to provide UNKNOWN files with a new file type for common extensions where the file identification failed. For example, there may be a file exception under UNKNOWN with the extension .docx.

          • Select this item,

          • click Add To Batch,

          • find an applicable file type like WINWORD2013, and

          • Reprocess the QC Batch, which will change the file type for this file.

        • Archive Exceptions – Archives are not exported out of the system. Exporting archives out as standalone files may be desired when nothing is extracted from them. To do this, select the archive(s) in the QC Documents table, click Add To Batch, select a new file type (use UNKNOWN or a more applicable file type), and Reprocess the QC Batch which will change the file type so that the file can be exported out of the system as a standalone file.

      • Source Replacement Files – This allows users different settings to replace the exception file or archive with a new file. There are 4 replacement settings:

        • Reprocess Original – By default, this defaults to Reprocess Original. This will reprocess the original archive or file.

          • File Exceptions – The typical workflow will be to Reprocess Original. If there is a reason to replace a particular file with a replacement file, please see below. Otherwise this should be left on Original File for file exceptions.

          • Archive Exceptions – When this setting is used for an archive, the system will go back into the archive and only try to re-extract the errored parent items. This is the recommended setting when trying to reprocess an errored archive for the first time.

        • File – This setting allows a user to upload a replacement file or archive.

          • File Exceptions – A file exception can be replaced by another file, but this must be done on a file by file level. To replace a file exception, choose the single file in the QC Documents table, click Add To Batch, click the drop-down, change it to File, and browse to the replacement file.

          • Archive Exceptions – When replacing an archive with a replacement file (i.e. a PST file that has been repaired by ScanPST.exe), if the archive had any children extracted from it those items will be deleted from the project and the replacement archive will be processed in its entirety in place of the errored archive. So if data has been exported from the errored archive prior to replacing the file, the FileIDs that were in the project will no longer exist.

        • Folder – This setting is only available for archives, and is not an option for hosted S3 storage. This follows the same behavior as File, meaning it will delete any children for the errored archive if it existed, but this will iterate through the entire folder to replace the errored archive. For example, if there is an errored non-email archive like a zip file, launching that archive to folder, unzipping it, and pointing to the unzipped folder as the replacement folder is recommended. Without this ability, it would be necessary to rezip the folder to use the new zip file as the replacement.

      • NSF User ID File – This will only be available for password protected NSF files. Type in the password for the file and upload the NSF file’s UserID by browsing to the UserID file.

    • Clear Batch – To clear the batch, click the Clear Batch button. This can be necessary if the need for different settings on the exception files becomes apparent prior to reprocessing them.

    • Reprocess Batch – To reprocess a QC Batch, click the Reprocess Batch button, give the QC Batch a name, choose whether or not to OCR, and click Launch. This will launch the QC Batch to start processing it. The QC Batch will move into the Reprocessing Category. Click the Refresh button to see the status update in the Reprocessing Category as well as the Doc Count in the other categories.

      Note

      If items are selected for OCR they must also be selected in the Project Settings, otherwise they will not OCR. For example, if JPEG is selected as an item to OCR in Import QC but is not selected in the Project Settings as an image type to OCR, this item will not OCR.

  5. Batch Management – A QC Batch can be paused, resumed, or deleted, or Archive Explorer opened.

  6. Edit Password Bank – Click the Edit Password Bank button to copy and paste a list of passwords (one per line) into the Password Bank. These passwords will be used to decrypt the files identified as encrypted during reprocessing.

  7. Double Click Behavior – The double click behavior defines what will happen when a user double clicks on a row within the QC Documents table. There are two settings, only one of which can be used at a time:

    • Launch To Folder – To launch the native file to a folder to get a working copy of the native file, click the Launch To Folder button and double click on the row within the QC Documents table.

    • Launch Native – This is the default setting. When a user double clicks on a row within the QC Documents table, it will launch that file in the Windows native application with which that file is associated.

  8. About – The About section provides the ProjectID as well as the Current Scope. When Current Scope is clicked it will put the SQL Query being used to filter the table on the clipboard so that it can be pasted into SQL to return the same file population.

  9. Export To Excel – To export the QC Documents table to an Excel file holding its groupings, counts, and columns, click the Export To Excel button.

    Note

    There is a grouping expand/collapse navigation within the Excel file. To use this navigation, open the Excel file and notice the numbers in the upper left hand corner next to the column A. Each of these numbers will correlate to its number of grouping within the QC Documents table. For example, when exporting the Processing Exceptions -> File Exceptions this navigation will look like 60391ac7d9cce.png when it is opened. If 1 is selected, all groupings will be collapsed to the top level, and so forth. Alternatively, the 60391aca72d32.png60391ad0514a7.png buttons can be used to expand/collapse individual groupings within the Excel file.

  10. Templates – Templates provide the user the ability to save the current Preview settings, including selected fields, field groupings, etc., on the project and global level. This feature coupled with the Export To Excel feature allows users to create customizable reports. There are two buttons associated with Templates that manage these features:

    • Save – To save the current Preview’s settings:

      • click the Save button,

      • give the template a name,

      • choose the Project Scope (Project to save the template only within the project, and Global to save the template across projects), and

      • click Save.
