    Field / OptionDescription
    Stream TypeSelect the required stream type from the drop down list. All subsequent reviews created will be of the same type. You can't create multiple reviews of different types within the context of a case.
    • Consolidated: The results of all searches selected for review are available in one review stream with the results deduplicated. All reviewers work within the same review stream, and receive the same configuration options. Review stream settings are applied to the stream, therefore you cannot assign different tags or permissions to multiple reviewers.
    • Independent: The results of all searches selected for review are available in separate, independent review streams. Each review stream can be managed independently, therefore you can assign different tags, permissions, and reviewers to each stream.
    This field is only displayed when creating a review case.
    Include All SearchesIf selected, this option automatically includes all available searches attached to the discovery case. If not selected, the Manage Searches section controls the searched to be included.
    NotesUse this field to enter any notes about the review case (e.g. a review case description).
    Allow ForwardingIf selected, reviewers can forward messages to any recipient during a review.
    Allow PrintingIf selected, reviewers can print messages during a review.
    Manage SearchesThis option is only valid if the "include All Searches" option is not selected. Use this section to include the searches to be attached to the review case. These searches must have previously been linked to your discovery case.

    3. Click on the Add Selected Searches button.
    There's a 200,000 message limit in a review stream. If the number of search results exceeds this limit, the export to the review stream fails.
