Configure Case Settings
Codes are used to note the relevance of documents. Documents are easily retrievable by review status or topic matter once they've been reviewed. Coding rules let admins enforce desired coding behavior. Together, codes and coding rules form the foundation of review.

Persistent highlights can be used to call out important or privileged words/phrases. Admins can create grouped and standalone highlights, and modify the color that highlights appear under in the review window.

You can modify metadata settings if you have non-standard data fields. You can also hide fields from searching and view, create user-editable fields (necessary for metadata redaction), and create grouped ("aliased") fields.
If you are conducting review with the intention of producing documents, the database will need to be in production mode. As part of production mode, you can add standard production codes to your coding sheet, and create redaction stamps.

Add and Manage Users via Groups
Adding users to a database is easy. Once a user is added, you can control their permissions through user groups. If you are removing a user, you can choose to save their work product.

Granular permission settings give admins the confirmation that the proper permissions are distributed to users within that project. Permissions are determined by user groups.

Document Access Management allows project administrators to control which documents users can view or modify on Everlaw. This is useful if you would like to manage access to specific document sets and do not want to create a full break in terms of coding, messaging, and administration by creating a new project.
