Learn what an eDiscovery Manager has access to and what their responsibilities are.
- [Instructor] In this movie we're going to talk about the role of the eDiscovery manager and take a look at their capabilities. So right now I'm here in our eDiscovery center and I have signed in as the eDiscovery administrator. Now if you don't know what an eDiscovery administrator is don't worry I have a video for that in this course. I'm simply signed in as the eDiscovery administrator so that you can see that we currently have three active cases here in our eDiscovery center. You see them, the Globe Bank case, the Labor Contract case and the Johnson Incident.
These cases have different eDiscovery managers and what we're going to do now is sign out as the administrator and sign back in as one of our eDiscovery managers and take a look at what they can do. Alright I'm signed in as Cecelia Forteau and she is the eDiscovery manager on the Labor Contract case. Now remember we have three cases in our eDiscovery center but now we can only see one. And that is because Cecelia Forteau is the eDiscovery manager only on this case.
The eDiscovery manager only has access to cases that they have been assigned to. The other two as far as she knows they don't even exist. Now the eDiscovery manager has a lot of important responsibilities and probably one of the main ones is creating the eDiscovery case. You see the big button up here that says create a case. If you have been assigned the role of the eDiscovery manager odds are you're the one that's going to be creating that case. You can also go ahead, let's select our case, and manage the case. Really case management is the biggest part of the eDiscovery managers role as you might imagine.
As the eDiscovery manager you can add and remove people from the case. You get to name the case. You can add in a description, you can close the case and delete the case. Let's go ahead and take a look at some of the other things our eDiscovery manager can do. You see these tabs up here, they give you options. We'll go to the hold tab. Now the eDiscovery manager is the only one who can create content holds, they're the only ones that can create content searches. They can export data and they can send it to eDiscovery for analysis.
The eDiscovery manager is an important role in every eDiscovery case. Now if you don't understand what a content hold is or a content search or how you send that data for analysis, we have other videos in this course that are going to show you how to do that. This video our purpose was to go ahead and just give you a better understanding of what the capabilities are of the eDiscovery manager.
