In ADDAutomated Digital Discovery Review, Advanced Search allows you to easily construct complex search expressions or specialized searches and display results in the Results tab. Searches can also be saved for later use or for specific tasks. For example, batches must be based on a saved search.
The following figure shows the Advanced Search tab, in the Case View, with the Field Search area expanded and the other areas collapsed. On the Advanced Search tab, areas can be expanded as needed to define the search and/or search options (areas are introduced in the following paragraphs).
Text searches are as the name implies – full text searches for words or phrases in case database fields (and corresponding images, native files, etc.). For more information, see Define a Text Search.
Fields to Search
This section of the Advanced Search tab allows you to create any of the following special searches. See Default Search Assumptions for descriptions of these searches.
Fields within the case
- Redaction Categories
This section of the Advanced Search tab allows you to limit search results to a specific date range, which will display on the timeline. For more information, see The Timeline.
This section of the Advanced Search tab allows you to organize (sort) search results based by field content (the columns in the case table). Up to three fields can be defined for sorting.
This section of the Advanced Search tab allows you to define a search to return a random sampling of documents matching your search criteria. Random sampling provides a representative set of documents from the search results. With random sampling, every document in your search results has an equal chance of participating in the sample; the number of documents in the sample depends on either a fixed value that you define or a statistics calculation based on confidence level and margin of error values that you set.
Navigate between Visual and Advanced search by either clicking the Visual Search tab or the Advanced Search tab.
