Load a Single Transcript, or Batch Load Multiple Transcripts
At the top of the home page, click on the DEPONENTS (or PROCEEDINGS if that's what you need). Select "Import Files".
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.
Prep accepts ASCII, PTF, PTX, PDF, LEF, CMS, or ZIP formats for your deposition.
If the transcript 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 File Room, select Add File From File Room. For more information on File Room, click here.
Click "Import Deposition Transcripts".
Nextpoint auto-detects and sets the standard metadata fields for your deposition & proceeding 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 transcripts. 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 Transcripts
After your transcripts have finished processing, Advanced and Standard users can edit the transcript date, volume number and start page. Once inside the transcript itself, click on More Options > Edit in the upper right side of the page.
