Use Case Management Reports

The Edit Case wizard in Case Management provides reports to assist you in the evaluation of case details. You can select a case and navigate to the Reports tab to view reports for the case.

When editing a case, the available reports include the following:

  • Gaps report
  • Volume Path report
  • Duplications report
  • Broken File Links report

Note: Additional reports are also available on the Reports tab in the Administration module.


Case Management Reports



Gaps Report

This report identifies missing pages, that is, breaks in the numbering sequence of image keys (defined in the BEGDOC field) for a particular case. For example, if XYZ05567 is a single-page document and the next document in the case is XYZ05569, a gap exists. This gap would be part of a report similar to the one shown here.

Optionally, the Gaps Report can include a list of the major image key groupings (document ranges, as indicated by image key prefixes). For example, this report shows that image keys beginning with both “ECL” and “XYZ” exist in the selected case.

Volume Path Report

This report lists volumes defined for the case, including the volume names and respective paths.

Duplicates Report

Similar to the Tally function in Review, this report identifies the number of occurrences of the values in a selected field. The Duplicates Report lists only field values that occur more than once, however.

This report is usually run against a field that is expected to have unique values, thus the report identifies exceptions.

Fields that will be available for this report include:

  • Any field defined with the Sort Key or Category flag

  • Any NUMERIC field

  • Any of the following fields:


    • BEGDOC

    • DOCKEY

    • _DOCID

    This report includes each value that exists and the number of duplicate entries.

Broken File Links Report

This report lists all image and native files that do not exist at the location indicated in the case.
