Culling a document will hide it from view and prevent it from being returned in searches. The Unculled and Culled views are mutually exclusive: a document can only be in one or the other, but not both. Culling a document doesn't delete it. Your culled document is simply sequestered in a filtered view that you can access again if needed.

For Project Admins & Account Admins, this a tool in Logikcull that can be leveraged to create Search Reports / Privilege Logs(accessible in the Search tab, to the right above the main search bar). For Account Admins, the ability to create User Reports and Usage Reports can be utilized in the Account Settings > Usage Tab.


The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM)  defines a custodian as a “[p]erson having administrative control of a document or electronic file; for example, the data custodian of an email is the owner of the mailbox which contains the message.”


De-duplication, or "de-dupe," filters out identical document copies in a project. There are three filter views to the top right above your search carousel: Global (across all custodians), Custodian (within data of a single custodian), and No De-dupe (all duplicates visible).


A download exports a collection or production set of documents out of Logikcull. You will need a saved search to initiate a download. A saved search can have as many (or as few) parameters applied as you’d like. You can select what work product to include or exclude, and choose how to produce images with endorsements, natives, and text files. You can also securely share a download directly from Logikcull or download it to your computer. Here's how to create a download/production in Logikcull.


Endorsements are text-based “stamps” placed on the top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right of document images. Options include endorsing with page numbers, Bates numbers, file names, tag-based, or custom (e.g., print the word “Confidential”).

Family Status

  • Standalone: Documents that have no embedded files or attachments. e.g. A .JPG image
  • Child: Documents that are part of a family and not the parent document. e.g. An attachment or embedded file.
  • Parent: Documents that have attachments or embedded files and are not a child document themselves. e.g. An email with an attachment.


Data about data. For a given document, the metadata can include such information as created date, last modified date, file size, and email header information. Metadata is not typically visible while using a printed version or on a screen.

Native Files

The original electronic files as they were uploaded into Logikcull.


Optical Character Recognition is a process by which documents without text (such as a picture of a receipt or a pdf without a text layer) will be scanned to generate searchable text based on the characters recognized on the image.


A way to modify parts of a database upload without having to re-upload the entire volume (does not work for File Uploads). If, for example, a metadata field is formatted incorrectly, or text or images need to be replaced, one can edit the data file (CSV) and upload it, overlaying the previous data.


Where the work on a case or matter resides. One project can have multiple uploads, saved searches, or downloads.

 QC Tags

Quality Control Tags. These are automatically applied by Logikcull during upload post-processing. QC Tags are an effort to alert you to information about your data that may be important to your project, such as which documents were OCRed, if metadata was imported, or whether there is a duplicate. What are QC Tags?

A way to save either search parameters or a list of search results (locked search). Example parameters could be email domain, document date, file type, removal of duplicates, etc. A saved search is required for a download. How can I save a search?
Filter Carousel

Logikcull’s user-friendly rotating search options.

A way to utilize search when you have many parameters to input. Search terms can be easily copied and pasted from a document into the bulk keyword table.

Useful for building complex search queries. How does Power Search work?


How your data gets into Logikcull. How do I upload new data into my project?

User Permission Levels
