NEW: Enable/Disable Available Sections in Prep Settings

Available Sections in Prep Settings

New in Nextpoint Prep is the addition of Available Sections under Settings.  Here, you can simplify the interface by disabling sections you don't intend to utilize in a particular database.

A couple of use-case examples are provided below, but first, let's review how you can easily enable or disable sections in Prep:

  1. Navigate to MORE > Settings > General in your Prep database.
  2. To display both Documents and Transcripts (Deponents/Proceedings), make sure both boxes are checked and click "Set Sections". This is the default setting in any new Prep database.

    • To display only Documents, uncheck Transcripts (Deponents/Proceedings) to disable that section, and click "Set Sections".

    • To display only Transcripts (Deponents/Proceedings), uncheck Documents to disable that section, and click "Set Sections".

  3. If you need to enable a disabled section at any time, Advanced Users can do so by navigating back to MORE > Settings > General > Available Sections and make adjustments accordingly.

Use-Case Examples

  1. When working with an expert witness, you may want to exchange specific documents/exhibits to a secondary database for his/her review.  Disabling the Transcripts section in this example would help the witness maintain a targeted review.
  2. In mass litigations, it may be useful to have a Master Exhibits database (with only the Documents section enabled) and a separate transcripts database (with only the Transcripts sections enabled).  You can then take the necessary evidence (exhibits & transcripts) and exchange to a new database for a particular trial.
