Organization Admins can assign Bates numbers to pre-produced documents for easy reference during your review and post-review workflows. Please note that these assigned Bates numbers will not be burnt into your documents until the documents go through production.
To assign Bates numbers to documents, first open a results table of the documents and ensure that they are in the desired order. Then, click the "Assign or remove Other Bates" option under the Batch icon.
To assign Bates, enter the desired Bates prefix and Begin Bates number, then click Apply. Similarly, to remove previously assigned Bates values, select Remove Other Bates, then click Apply. Note that you can leave the “Prefix” field empty to assign Bates numbers with no Bates prefix; simply enter a Bates number and click “Apply” to do so.
On Everlaw, assigned Bates values are stored in the Other Bates metadata field.
Note that these assigned Bates numbers will not be burnt into your documents until you have produced the documents. If you would like to use the assigned Bates numbering in your production protocol, select the option to “Use Other Bates metadata for numbering” during production configuration.
