Privilege Log Creation

Privilege Log entries are populated while reviewing documents using the Work Product Inspector or the Work Product Palette. The Privileged Basis is only available for documents for which a privilege type mark has been applied.  

With the Work Product Inspector, once a document has been marked with a privileged type mark, use the drop down to select a Privilege Basis or free type into the available note field.

The Work Product Pallet allows for the application of the Privilege Basis to a set of documents by highlighting the associated rows in the grid screen and selecting the Privilege Basis from the Work Product Pallet.
