How to Associate Flags with Issue Codes in TranscriptPad

A much-requested feature in TranscriptPad allows you to create a report that includes only Flags that are tied to selected Issue Codes. Before this feature, selecting Flags would create a report of all the Flags in your entire transcript. Now, you can tie Flags to Issue Codes. The resulting report will give you only the Flags associated with the Issue Code(s) you select, instead of including them all.

Here’s how it works:

1) Select the first and last line of the designation. When the designation popover appears, first tap the Issue Code(s) and then tap the Flag button you associate with the Issue Code. You can also associate new Issue Code(s) with an existing Flag.

2) To get your results, select Detail or Summary PDF or TXT reports in the reports section. Choose to include “Flags” and “Flag Notes” in your report. You’ll now see a new option to “Only Include Flag Notes Associated With Selected Issue Codes”. Select the new option and the Issue Code(s) with which you’ve associated your Flags. The resulting report will include only the Flags and Notes that were associated with the Issue Codes you selected, and the selected Issue Codes.

One use for this report is for a Motion in Limine. Select the lines of the transcript you object to, create an Issue Code “Motion in Limine”, add a Flag, and create a Note containing the basis for your objection. Then create a Detail PDF or TXT report and choose to include “Flags”, "Flag Notes”, “Only Include Flag Notes Associated With Selected Issue Codes”, and your “Motion in Limine” Issue Code. The resulting report will show the page lines and testimony to which you are objecting, and group them with the Note that contains the basis for your objection. All other Flags, Notes, and Issue Codes will be excluded from the report.
