Assignments

Having a plan when beginning review – however incomplete or abstract – can save you time and money later down the line. Here are some articles you can read to get a sense of how Everlaw's features can be used to build workflows.

The assignment tool in Everlaw is structured around groups. It allows you to distribute documents to reviewers and monitor their progress.

Assignment groups contain documents that meet specified criteria. You can create assignment groups from the homepage or from any results table.

Everlaw’s assignment group inclusion criteria allows you to link one assignment to a second assignment. You can "daisy chain" assignments together to achieve a variety of workflows.
