Load a Single Deposition, or Batch Load Multiple Depositions
At the top of the home page, click on the DEPOSITIONS (or TRANSCRIPTS if that's what you need). Select "Import Deposition".
On the following screen you may; 1) have the system determine the deponent automatically, 2) add as a volume to an existing deponent, or 3) provide a new name. Select the default folder you'd like to have this deposition associated with (if any).
Prep accepts ASCII, PTF, PTX, PDF, LEF, CMS, or ZIP formats for your deposition.
If the deposition file resides on your local drive, select Add File From Computer to your deposition (or .zip file if uploading multiple depositions). If it has previously been uploaded to your case folder, select Add File From Staging Folder. For more information on Staging Folders, click here.
Click "Import File".
Nextpoint auto-detects and sets the standard metadata fields for your deposition & courtroom transcripts upon upload. Occasionally, electronic transcripts have issues and the fields aren't correctly identified during upload.
Although you can manually edit this information (by following the instructions below), it can become tedious when correcting a large number of depositions. To automate the proper input of all metadata during upload, build a simple load file to help you direct the metadata to the right place.
* if uploading multiple transcripts with a load file, download the sample .CSV load files from the bottom of this page (depositions.csv) to give you the structure you need.
Edit Your Depositions
After your depositions have finished processing, Advanced and Standard users can edit the deposition date, volume number and start page. Once inside the deposition itself, click on More Options > Edit in the upper right side of the page.
