Do you need to undo some work product applied by yourself or a user in your project? This two-step process can help.

Step 1: Isolate past work product

Here's a scenario and an example search. We'll break it down below.

Scenario:

"I need to isolate the work product applied by joe.cull@email.com. Joe bulk-tagged documents 'Responsive' that were not previously tagged as such. Joe completed this activity on October 31, 2021 between 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM, Pacific Time."


Example search:

updates.user_email:joe.cull@email.com AND (updates.new_tags:Responsive AND NOT updates.old_tags:Responsive) AND updates.happened_at:[2021-10-31T13:30-07:00 TO 2021-10-31T14:00-07:00]


Let's break this down.

"I need to isolate the work product applied by joe.cull@email.com"

updates.user_email:joe.cull@email.com

"Joe bulk-tagged documents 'Responsive' that were not previously tagged as such."


AND (updates.new_tags:Responsive AND NOT updates.old_tags:Responsive)

OR

"Joe bulk culled a search result that were not previously culled."

AND (updates.new_cull:true AND updates.old_cull:false)

hint: if you're running a search for culled documents, you'll need to make sure your search is being run in the "culled" filter view.

"Joe completed this action on October 31, 2021 between the hours of 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM, Pacific Time." (using military time, 7 hours behind UTC)

AND updates.happened_at:[2021-10-31T13:30-07:00 TO 2021-10-31T14:00-07:00]

ℹ️ Need to calculate your time from UTC? Here's a handy calculator.

Step 2: Use the bulk action tool to reverse the action

Once you've run your search and isolated the documents, you can run a bulk action to tag/untag/cull/uncull as needed. Here's how to use the bulk select tool.
