Learn more about uploading Native Data

Once documents are successfully uploaded, they will be searchable and viewable in your project. In addition to the videos below, you can also read the Upload help articles.

Everlaw has a self-service, cloud-based uploading system that supports both native and processed data. There are a few ways to tell if your data is native or processed. It's important to know these differences to ensure your data gets uploaded correctly.

What is Native Data?

Native data is typically your unprocessed or raw files (i.e. original documents that have come from a custodian's computer or data that is collected by a vendor). Data can be organized in subdirectories named after their custodians. Native documents will be automatically processed and uploaded on the platform. For native data uploads, Everlaw generates images, text, and metadata for documents.

Everlaw’s uploader is a directly accessible interface that allows users to upload data directly into the Everlaw platform. Read the Introduction to uploads help article.

Everlaw's cloud-processing system handles 500k documents/hour while simultaneously automating standard processing such as error-handling, deduplication, deNISTing, OCR, imaging, and generating text and metadata. Read the Uploading native data help article.

Uploading data directly into Everlaw from your Microsoft organization requires Database Upload permissions on Everlaw and Global Admin permissions on your Microsoft organization. Read the Uploading documents from Microsoft Office 365 help article.
