Terms, Tips, and Tricks

The following table includes terms used throughout Review.




Electronic file or email message.


Unique number assigned to each document record in the database. Two documents with exactly the same content have different IDs.


Collection of related documents, such as an email and its attachments.


Numeric value associated with the electronic fingerprint of the document. Two documents with exactly the same content have the same pith number (but not the same ID).


Designations that describe the disposition of a document. Examples of common Marks include Privileged, Non-responsive, and Produce. Marks are mutually exclusive; a document can have only one mark.

Issue Codes

Tags used to denote one or more potential issues related to a document. Documents can have multiple Issue Codes. Examples of common Issue Codes are “Hot”, “Strategic”, and “Financial Plan”.


Name indicating the source of the documents, such as the hard drive, network share, or media. This is not necessarily the author of the document, as the document could be stored on, and collected from, someone else’s hard drive.


The Binders, Collections and/or Custodians included in the review set.


A distinct set of documents that were processed together and associated with one or more custodians.

Duplicate documents

Documents that have the same pith value.
