Now rolling out! Use Search and Tagging to refine your content for review in Advanced eDiscovery

July 26, 2018

Today we are announcing the beta of the Search & Tagging functionality for Office 365 Advanced eDiscovery.

The new search and tagging feature in Advanced eDiscovery will help you find the most relevant and responsive data within a case, tag that content and then work with just that specific content for further analysis or review. This feature will help streamline your eDiscovery processes for not just litigation but for other common discovery requests such as early case assessments, investigations or information requests.

Search & Tagging enables you to search content within your existing Advanced eDiscovery case, including keywords, metadata and or additional Advanced eDiscovery analytics such as Themes, Relevance score and tag them for organization. At export, you can then decide to export only content that has been tagged in a certain way.

Search & Tag User Experience

After gathering and processing content you can now use Search & Tagging to further filter down the data. You can search based on keywords and search queries can be defined using provided condition cards, or through a Keyword Query Language (KQL) in the condition card.

Conditions can be added to your query to find content based on Themes generated during analysis.

Viewing themed content can provide valuable insights beyond keyword search statistics and can be extremely valuable to an investigation.

Search Results.pngWithin your search results, create and apply tags specific to your case.

When your search completes, you will have the option to create and apply tags specific to your case. Tags can be applied to one or more items from the search results, and in turn a search can be performed using the tags created.

Export Tagged Results.pngExport just those results that have been tagged with a specific label.

When exporting from Advanced eDiscovery, you can now choose to export only documents that are tagged with a particular label. With the volume of data increasing, new tools to refine and reduce relevant data set within a specific case will help to streamline your eDiscovery process.
