You can easily send word documents from LawVu into Word Online for editing. When you finish making edits and close the browser tab, the document will return to LawVu. You'll be able to access the previous versions by using the version history of the document.
To get started just select a word document in a matter then click on the ellipsis menu ('...' menu) then choose 'Edit with Word Online'.
You can also choose to edit from the file preview window by choosing 'Actions > Edit with Word Online'.
A new browser tab will open and we'll start opening the document with Word Online (Office 365) - this can take a few moments.
Once the document is open you'll see a familiar word interface where you can make the various edits that you need. You'll see the document periodically save back to LawVu.
When you've finished your edits just check and make sure you see the 'Saved to LawVu' indicator - then you can close that browser tab.
When you return to LawVu you can check the file preview and you will see the version history and current version.
