QC stands for Quality Control. That’s the basic idea behind them: we want to alert you to things in your data that might’ve traditionally gone unnoticed and that may or may not be important to your matter.

The QC Tag tells you things like:

How many potentially privileged emails were detected?
How many documents were from a database upload?
How many documents have a duplicate?
...and more.

What if a person was sending privileged emails with PDF attachments to a law firm that the attachments themselves contained non-searchable attachments, like photos or scanned documents? And what if those non-searchable attachments were critical documents to your case?

With Logikcull, you’d be able to answer that question. This is just one example out of thousands where you’d want to leverage QC Tags to know more about your data. 

If you're curious what each QC Tag means, simply hover over the name in the filter and the tooltip box will tell you.

Has Virus
Documents that have been detected to contain a virus. These documents are quarantined during processing and can not be downloaded.
Is a Copy
This document is a copy of a document from another project.
Is Overlaid
Overlay(s) applied to document.
Last Email
Email that is the last message of an email thread or is a message without a thread. When part of a thread, this tag indicates the end of a particular thread and not the inclusiveness of the thread's contents within this email.
Mismatched Extension
Documents with incorrect or missing file extensions. For instance, a .DOC file that is really a .PPT file but with an incorrect extension.

Documents identified as being part of the NSRL database of known computer files.
Use this QC tag to find documents that contain zero QC Tags.
Not Rendered
Documents that were not rendered to PDF during processing.

Document where OCR (Optical Character Recognition) was attempted but failed.
Documents that were OCRed (Optical Character Recognition) so they can be searched.
Potentially Privileged
Emails that have a law firm email address in the From, To, CC, or BCC fields. They are considered to be potentially privileged. Suggest a new domain name by clicking the Get Support link in your Account drop down menu at the top of the screen.
Documents that are password protected.
Rendered Text
The document's text was used to render the document to PDF. This happens if all other means to render the document fail.
