You can create a report of the annotations in one or more transcripts. This report is called an Annotated Lines Report or a digest report.
An Annotated Lines Report allows you to reduce the amount of time that you spend reviewing transcripts. For example, instead of reviewing a transcript multiple times during the course of a trial, you can review and annotate a transcript once during discovery, and then create an Annotated Lines Report each time that you need to refer to specific annotations.
You can preview the report in Ringtail, or export the report to Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. In Word, the report includes each annotation, the page and line numbers of the annotations, the names of the reviewers who added the annotations, and the dates the annotations were added. In Excel, the report includes the same information in a spreadsheet format. You can use the features in Excel to further sort and analyze the data on the report.
For more information about transcript annotations, see Annotate transcripts.
