  2. Hover over the compliance tab on the left hand side and select "eDiscovery".

  3. Select the "Saved Search" tab.

  4. The latest search that has been created will be at the top of the list of searches. In this case we have just created "Test eDiscovery".

  2. This will bring you to the page where you can edit the criteria that was used for the saved search.

  3. Once you have edited the search, select the "Update" option which will then modify the search.

Tagging a review

  1. To tag a review, simply select the radio button beside the saved search, then select "Tag", and finally "Add Tag".

  2. You can then select a tag that has already been created, or type the name of your tag and click enter. Once completed, select "OK"

  1. To mark a search for review, select the radio button beside the search and then select "Mark for Review".

  2. On the next screen, you will select the review option that is needed in your scenario, add any important notes, and then select "Create".
    1. Please note that if you select the "Mark for Review & Deletion (DPO)" option, this would mean that whoever is assigned the Data Protection Officer role will review the data, and then delete if necessary as this is the only role that can delete from the archive solution.

  3. Next, under the compliance tab on the far left you can select "Review Process".

  4. In the review process tab you will then find the search that you had previously marked for review.
