Overview of private conversations
LawVu enables you to collaborate freely yet securely on sensitive matters. It does this by allowing you to create private conversations.
You can make any conversation 'Private.' Once marked 'Private', only those people that have been specifically added to that conversation will be able to view it. It will not be visible to everyone who is a member of that matter or contract, nor will it be visible in the initial preview mode.
Once a conversation has been marked as 'Private' it cannot be made public again.
How to make a conversation private
For a new conversation:
Simply create a new conversation or select an existing one.
When starting a new conversation, click the Make Private toggle.
For an existing conversation:
From an existing conversation, click the Conversation details icon in the top right
Expand the Security tab and select Make private.
Adding people to the conversation
You can only add someone to a private conversation if they are already a member of the matter or contract. To add people to a private conversation simply invite them as usual by:
Selecting specific members as you create the conversation.
Clicking the Conversation details icon in the top right of an existing conversation, expanding the Members tab, and using + Add people.
Clicking the Conversation details icon in the top right of an existing conversation, expanding the Email recipients tab, and using + Add email recipients.
Alternatively, if someone has the correct permissions to view the matter and you @mention them, they will also be brought into the conversation.
Removing people from the conversation
To remove someone from the conversation simply:
Click the Conversation details icon in the top right of an existing conversation
Expand the Members tab
Click the "x" beside the appropriate conversation member.
