I learned a lot and also great job to Julie! Although I'm biased because I work with her. And yes, the pop-up questions were confusing to me as well but the ones at the end made sense.

The first pop up question was very confusing to me as it seemed to imply that metadata must be produced even if opposing party does not request it.

Good module. But the questions within the module (not the final questions) could be phrased more clearly. Yes, more discussion of metadata, please.

I did not realize you had to re-OCR pdfs after redacting them. Thank you.

Good module and generally informative. But more discussion on metadata should have been provided.
