In some cases, you may need to produce documents with a second Bates number—while maintaining their original Bates numbering—on the production image.
This recipe shows you how to build production images that maintain their original Bates numbering.
- Workspace access
- Saved searches
- Production sets
- Relativity Desktop Client
- Relativity 7 or above
There are two options for creating a new set of production images that retain the Bates numbering from a previous production. Both options generate the same results.
Load the documents to re-produced back into Relativity as new documents.
- Create a saved search of the documents to produce again.
- Export the documents’ images from the saved search.
Ensure you select the production version of the images in the Production Precedence section of the Relativity Desktop Client.
- Import the documents back into your original workspace as new documents. Use the Bates number as the control number.
- Create a production set with the documents you just loaded back into Relativity . The images contain the Bates numbers from the original production, and from the new production.
Produce the documents in a “staging” workspace.
- Export the documents to re-produce from the original workspace.
Note: Ensure you select the correct production version in the Production Precedence section of the Relativity Desktop Client.
- Create a new “staging” workspace. Load the first version of the produced images into the staging workspace.
- Create a production set in the staging workspace, and then produce the documents. The images contain the Bates numbers from the original production, and from the new production.
- Export the re-produced documents from the staging workspace.
Note: Ensure you select the new production version in the Production Precedence section of the Relativity Desktop Client.
- Create a production set in the original workspace.
- Overlay the re-produced documents as a production in the original workspace. This gives you a production set containing the original documents in the original workspace—which contains images with both sets of Bates numbers.
