Actions from preview mode

The Preview mode offers a convenient means to obtain a comprehensive overview of matter or contract progress, ensuring you stay well-informed about the current status.

It is built around giving you 80% of what you need to see 80% of the time, which dramatically speeds up the LawVu experience. It allows you to quickly check in on the status of a matter or contract without navigating away from where you are currently working or jumping directly into the full record.

The preview mode is essentially read-only. From the matter preview mode, you can perform two actions:

You can also copy a direct link to the matter or contract so you can share it with others, as well as view matters and contracts that are linked to it.

It's important to note that you need the appropriate permissions to access the associated matters or contracts.

For Business Users working on a matter, the preview mode defines the extent of their access within LawVu. Business Users are primarily concerned with checking on the status of the matters they have raised with their legal team, and preview mode enables them to do this. They can also continue contributing to the work on their matters by adding messages and files in conversations.

For contracts, business users have more options. They can use the Contract Self-Service to work with them directly from Preview mode, enabling them to self-upload, self-serve, and manage their own contracts.
