Overview: Playlists

In TRIAL DIRECTOR EVIDENCE, you can add a playlist to your case using the Playlists Explorer. Playlists are used to combine clips created from transcripts into playlists that can be played during trial. They can also be exported allowing you to share playlist clips with other team members or opposing counsel via email or other file sharing services. A single playlist can combine clips from multiple deponents.
