There are two ways to create a Case in OnCue – either by selecting “New” when OnCue is first launched; or by opening the File menu and selecting “New.”

From launching OnCue:

From within OnCue:

Either option launches a window that allows you to determine where the main case folder will be located and what to name it.

The main case folder is where all the case data is stored (how this can be changed will be covered in another article). This includes documents, synchronized transcripts, and video files. 

Since the size of these materials can be quite large, some thought should be given as to where you locate the folder. By default, OnCue will create new case folders on the desktop until you change the drive or folder and then it will default to that folder when you create a new case. If your drive has limited space you may want to browse to a different drive (e.g., an external USB or Network drive).

Creating a Case

Once the case has been created, it can be opened either at the launch screen or File -> Open from the menu in the program to bring up a file browser.

Select the root case folder, not a file, then click OK.
