A smoother way to build your case
Most occupations come with at least some admin. But for investigators and analysts, the task of collecting, processing and organizing data is a major part of the job. Still, some ways of going about it are more efficient than others.
Every unnecessary step or second spent waiting on a file upload adds up to more time away from the ultimate task: uncovering the intelligence that closes the case. With this release, we seek to streamline your investigative flow even further with updates ranging from easier file collection directly in the Discovry browser to a brand new Notification Center that helps you keep track of every case activity.
Download and collect documents from your Discovry browser
The next time you’re investigating online and discover an interesting PDF file, save yourself a step and collect it directly in your Discovry case. The built-in Discovry browser has now been updated to support PDF files, so you don’t have to open them via Acrobat anymore. Easily choose whether a collected PDF file should be included in your report. Add comments directly to the PDF. You can even select specific material from a file to highlight, cut, paste and collect separately.
Track case activity in the Discovry Notification Center
If you’ve ever spent time wondering where data has ended up in Discovry or what the processing status of a particular file is, we’ve got great news for you. The Notification Center is here to make it easier to track what and when everything happens in your case. The notifications serve as a great shortcut for getting to the file or collected data if you work on multiple collections or exports. The Notification Center is especially helpful whenever you download or upload a new batch of data to your case and work with external services.
Collect webpages as MHTML
It has always been possible to collect an entire webpage in your Discovry case but, with this release, we’ve also made it possible to save it as a MHTML file. This means that you can easily surf around the webpage as it actually appears, directly in the Discovry browser. All CSS is automatically included, so the page will look identical to the original at the time the page was collected. You can also export a webpage from Discovry and choose whether you want to save it as a series of screenshots, export the source code or save it as an MHTML file. Additionally, you can send the downloaded webpage directly to YOSE with just one click for further analysis of the content.
Other improvements in this release
Reverse image search on multiple images
Now you can easily select several images and run a reverse image search on them with the push of a button.
Native support for M1 Macs
We now offer native support for Apple M1 Macs. If you have a M1 Mac, you can find a separate installation file to download in the user portal.
Browser tabs have a new look
We’ve made a number of minor UX updates. Among other improvements, we have color-coded the tabs so that you can more easily see whether you are in a TOR tab or an open web tab.
