Metadata View

The metadata view displays two columns: Field and Value. Both these columns may be sorted by clicking on the desired column heading. Column is sorted alphabetically in ascending order. When the column heading is clicked again, the column sorts in descending order. Note: MetadataMetadata describes how and when and by whom a particular set of data was collected, and how the data is formatted. Created by the native program (e.g. Microsoft Word, Outlook) and is maintained with the native file (the letter or e-mail). eCapture uses a component called Oracle® Outside-In Technology (formerly Stellent), which extracts the metadata from the native files during the electronic discovery process. metadata can show the history of a document, where it went, how it was used, what it “did”. It shows how a document was created, the date it was created, modified, and/or transmitted, and the person or persons who handled the document. fields are not display for extracted text regardless of user permissions.
