Native Placeholders in Production


An endorsement template defines how images will be Bates numbered (endorsed) as part of an export, as well as defining where native placeholders should be generated.

What's a native placeholder?

A native placeholder indicates that a single image (a “placeholder”) is included in the production, in lieu of an image-per-document-page. This image will retain a single number (e.g. Bates) representing the document.

This is desirable for content that is easier to review using a native application (e.g. .xls). In this situation, the native file is included in the export in addition to the placeholder (with a single number stamp).

Because native files will reveal content redacted on images, a native placeholder will never be generated for a redacted document. In this situation, a redacted .xls document will have each page individually imaged and numbers assigned.
