Hello Everybody, 


I wanted to let you all know that as of July 30, 2017, eDiscovery Platform 8.3 CHF1 has been released eDiscovery Platform 8.3 Cumulative Hotfix 1 Release    


Besides a good many fixes, this release contains some very noteworthy and long-awaited highlights:  


Redaction sets with preset reason codes 

Currently, case reviewers can add free text as a reason for redaction while redacting a document. With 8.3 CHF1, new functionality is available so the Case Administrator can define preset reason codes. Reviewers will then be able to redact documents by applying reason codes consistently. 

  • The Case Administrator can create redaction sets with either predefined reason codes or free text reason codes.  
  • Case reviewers can apply the preset reason codes to redaction markups.   
  • Case reviewers can search, filter, or export documents based on the preset reason codes. 


Annotations in review mode 

In addition to the existing capability to redact a document, the 8.3 CHF1 release adds the ability to annotate a document in review mode.  

  • Case reviewers can annotate a document by adding comments or graphical stamps, or strike out some text.   
  • Case reviewers are also allowed to delete annotations.  
  • Case reviewers can also search the document for the Redacted Tag. 
  • Once annotated, the document can be reviewed by another reviewer, who can also add annotations.


Review Redaction Reference Card

A new Review Redaction Reference Card has been created and is provided with the 8.3 CHF1 release to detail the new functionality included in Preset Reason Codes, Redaction Mode and Annotating Documents.  In addition, there are some Review tips and trick included.


Case Backup Integrity 

During an eDiscovery Platform backup, empty directories may be created in the backup structure.  If a case backup directory is then moved and empty directories are not copied, a restore job will subsequently fail. With 8.3 CHF1, restore job for a case backup with empty directories does not fail. With the Case Backup Integrity feature, a checksum of the case backup directory is created during both the backup and the restore job. The checksum file created during the restore job is compared with the checksum file created during the backup job. If any empty directory is identified, then these empty directories are created at their specific paths during restore. This results in the success of the restore jobs.  


You can apply the hotfix by downloading from the aforementioned link and installing from the exe file.  


As with any upgrade, please first refer to the upgrade support documents:
