Bates Stamping (also known as Bates Numbering, Bates Branding, Bates Coding or Bates Labeling)  is used in the legal, medical, and business fields to place identifying numbers and/or date/time-marks on images and documents as they are being processed, for example, during the discovery stage of preparations for trial or identifying business receipts. This process provides identification, protection, and automatic consecutive numbering of the images being produced.

When retrieving messages from ArchiveOne Enterprise and choosing to apply Bates Stamping to the results, a numerical identifier is added to the body of each message retrieved for future unique identification of messages.
