GoldFynch allows you to download individual files from the 'Docs' view, but this can be time-consuming if you have a large number of files to compile or want to download all files in your case. Instead, the easiest and fastest way is to use GoldFynch's production feature. Here's how to do so:

1) Tag all the files you wish to download. Learn more about tagging files here and how to tag files in bulk hereAlternatively, you can create a saved search for the files.

2) Click on the 'Production' button in the left pane to access the production view

3) Click on the 'Start Production Wizard' button under the 'Production Wizard' tab

Navigate to the productions view and click on Start Production Wizard

4) Enter a name for the production and click on the 'OK' button

5) Click on the tag(s) or saved search(es) associated with the documents that you'd like to download, then click on the 'OK' button

Click on the tags and saved searches associated with the documents to be downloaded and click on Ok

NOTE: You can include all files in your case by not selecting any tags or omit specific sets of files using the 'invert' function.

6) Click on the 'Natives Only' button then click on the 'OK' button
