New Tools for Automation and Collaborationhttps://www.nextpoint.com/wp-content/themes/fildisi/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg150150Elizabeth GuthrieElizabeth Guthriehttps://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/ac8ae9c5e7533bbb2b8cb6440229d792?s=96&d=mm&r=g
The evolution continues. Here are the latest enhancements to your ediscovery and case management software.
We recently launched exciting new features that foster better collaboration, enhanced automation and smoother workflows for document review and case building. See below for a preview of what’s included.
Automate and Streamline Redactions
Redactions require careful attention to avoid disastrous consequences, like inadvertent waiver of privilege. But the manual process of marking each document can be time-consuming and tedious. To streamline this process, we launched Full Page and Full Document Redactions, the first in a new series of tools that will automate redactions while improving accuracy.
Cases often include long documents that require many pages of full redactions. Now, users can redact all of these pages at once; simply add a list of page numbers and watch the redactions appear in your document. Users can also choose to redact an entire document at once, like a privileged email attachment that must be produced because it’s part of a responsive email family.
Stay tuned as we continue to enhance your redaction toolkit with automated, reliable methods to speed up your review process.
Refine and Collaborate On Your Visual Timelines
This year, we launched many exciting updates in our Litigation platform to help users build their winning case story, including the Evidence Dashboard, Case Chronology, and Visual Timeline Builder. In the initial Timeline launch, users could export their timelines as PNGs or PDFs; now, they can also save, edit, and share their timelines to collaborate with other members of their team.
One of the biggest advantages of working in the cloud is the ease of collaboration; now, this extends to visual timelines, an essential tool for legal teams working together to build a complex case. We also want Nextpoint to be a living space where users can develop, refine, and analyze their cases, and we knew that the ability to save and edit timelines is essential to this goal.
Quick Wins for Case Building
With all the exciting additions we’ve made to the Litigation suite this year, we’ve been constantly listening to our users to understand how we can refine these features and provide an optimal experience. Here are a few small updates that will enhance case building in Nextpoint:
Fact, Issue, and People Overlays: In Nextpoint, users can utilize “overlay” CSV files to update the coding and metadata of documents in their database. We added the overlay capability to Facts, Issues and People so that it’s easy to migrate case building workflows to Nextpoint and manage them right alongside discovery and depositions.
Facts and People in Searches: We added Facts and People to Advanced Searches as well as autosuggestions in the search bar, giving users more ways to filter through the evidence using the key elements of their story.
Refined Timeline Layout: We continued to refine the layout of the Visual Timeline Builder, including an adjustment to the location of the Help button. (Sometimes, the little things are what our users care about. So of course, we care about them too.)
Stay tuned in 2024 to see how we continue to enhance your case building experience. And don’t hesitate to reach out with any feedback – we love to hear your ideas.
