More Powerful and Easier to Use Assignments

Creating and managing the assignment of documents among your review team just got easier and more intuitive. This release introduces a redesigned assignment creation wizard, which remains accessible from the familiar location within the results table. The interface will guide you through identifying assignees for the assignment, setting the document allocation ratios, and even establishing a block of unassigned documents for distribution later in the review process.

Creating an Assignment


Once created, assignees will receive their assignment immediately via the internal Everlaw messaging system and as an assignment card directly on their homepage. They can click the new card to get started, and, as they move through their assigned documents, the card will show their progress. And the enhancements don’t stop there!

Home Screen Assignments

We’ve also created a new assignments overview page where case administrators can monitor, and even alter, assignments groups, individual assignments, and attendant review criteria. From here you can see the progress each assignee has made through their assigned batch, with tools readily available to reassign and allocated unassigned documents as needed to keep everyone working continuously and collaboratively. Case leads can also use this interface to set or modify the assignment review criteria, ensuring you’re establishing the most useful benchmark for completion given the specific document set at hand.

Assignments Page

Managing a large team, virtual or otherwise, can be difficult; we hope our revamped assignments will help your team to work more efficiently and with less interruption. As always, your feedback is crucial to keep our efforts focused on areas that will have the most impact on your experience of Everlaw. Let us know what you think of this new iteration of assignments!
