Generate and Export a Privilege Report

The Privilege Report identifies tags that have been defined with the Include in Privilege Report option (in Eclipse SE Administration) and then summarizes how many documents have been given that designation. The report also lists the key data points related to each privileged item (such as document ID, tag group, and field-specific data).

One use of this report might be to identify privileged documents (that is, documents that should not go to opposing counsel).

  2. Select a Client and Case and click Open.

  3. Click the Eclipse SE button in the top-left corner of the Eclipse SE Desktop work area. On the Eclipse SE menu, click Reports. On the sub-menu, click the Privilege Report option.
