Principal Changes of the August 14, 2015 Release

Note: These release notes may not reflect current Everlaw functionality, as product updates may have changed certain features since these notes were published. Please refer to our Knowledge Base for support articles on current functionality. 

August brings a host of refinements, tweaks, and new features to make the experience of using Everlaw better than ever!  Read on to learn more about the changes included in this release:

New Homepage Compact View

Locating the most relevant items on Everlaw just got easier. We’ve added a new Compact View that shows you only favorited and recently active cards on your homepage. You can switch from a full view with all your cards to Compact View by using the drop-down menu in the top left corner of the homepage.

You can expand the columns alphabetically or use keyboard shortcuts in Compact View, just like in the regular view. We hope Compact View will give you a powerful second option for managing your workflow in complex cases.

Removing Children

We have just added a new wrinkle to our grouping tool. You can now use the “Remove children” option to remove any children from grouped search results, whether by attachments, duplicates, or other emails in a thread. There are many potential uses:

  • Deduplicate a set of documents, even after hot or warm ratings have been applied
  • Show only the parent email of any documents in your results
  • Limit your table to one email per thread

Exporting Messages

You can now export your Everlaw messages as a csv file. Simply click the “Export” option from within message center, and the body of your messages, names of attachments, and time and sender information will be packaged, and available for download. You can download the file either by clicking on the link in the “task completed” notification that will pop-up once the file is ready, or via the homepage, under the “Batches & Exports” column. If you want to export all the messages sent within your case, contact your account lead, or Everlaw support.

Random Sampling

You can now choose to see only a randomly sampled subset of your full search results for any given search. Toggle the new sample search option, found at the bottom of the terms table on the search page. A new box will appear under the query builder where you can specify a percentage of the full result set you would like to see.

New Help Center

Last, but not least, we’ve overhauled our help center. Now you can search by topic or keyword, or contact Everlaw Support directly, within an easily navigable knowledge base.
