License editions: To understand the applicable license editions, see Plans & Pricing.

Overview

To assess a set of evidence by using AccessData, you must create a project and then add evidence to the project. After you add evidence to the project, AccessData processes this data so that it can be reviewed, coded, and labeled by a team of reviewers by using the Project Review interface.

Before you begin

Before you create a project in AccessData, ensure that you are an administrator or a project manager with the Create Project admin role. To obtain this role, contact your AccessData administrator.

Procedure


πŸ“ Note

This procedure describes the steps to create a project and describes the mandatory fields for project creation. If you need any other information about the project configuration, fields, or options, such as evidence processing or deduplication options, project properties cloning, or project permissions, see the AccessData ResolutionOne Administrator's Guide.


To create a project in AccessData:

  1. Log on to AccessData as an administrator or as a user that has permissions to create projects.
    ​

  2. Click Create New Project. The Create New Project Window appears.
    ​ ​

  3. Provide the appropriate information in each field.

    • Project Name: Type a name for this project. Project Names must be only alphanumeric characters. Special characters cause the project creation to fail.

    • Description: Type a description for this project.

    • Project Folder Path: Type the path to the project folder. You can specify a local path or a UNC network path to the project folder.

      This field might have a default value that you can use or change, or the administrator might have configured and hidden this field.

    • Job Data Path: Type the path to the location of reports data.

      This field might have a default value that you can use or change, or the administrator might have configured and hidden this field.
      ​

  4. (Optional) You can enable a Feed Alert Job to scan the project by enabling feed checking, copy properties from an existing project to the newly created project, or add people who will deal with the evidence of this project.
    ​

  5. Click the Processing Options tab to set the processing options for the project.
    This is where you set the options for how the evidence is processed when it is added to the project. This field might have a default value that you can use or change, or the administrator might have configured and hidden this field.
    ​ Note: You cannot change the processing options after you create the project.
    ​

  6. To create the project without importing evidence, click Create Project. AccessData creates the project. The Project Management page appears. You can then configure the project by adding evidence, assigning permissions, and so on.
    ​ To create the project and begin importing evidence, click Create Project and Import Evidence.
