The LawVu document management system allows you to bulk export multiple Matters, Contracts, Files, Conversations and Knowledge files (and the data associated with them) at the same time to your local drive from the search results.

The export results in a .zip folder that you can extract and use locally.

How to bulk export from search results

Search by keywords in the top global search bar to display a list of all Matters / Files / Conversations / Contracts or Knowledge matches available in the platform. Browse through the different tabs to identify the information you are looking for.

Select or multiselect the checkboxes on the left side of the results and click the Download icon to start the export.

Marking the checkbox at the top as selected will select all results on the page.

If you are looking to download all results, you can "Select all x items"

Once you click Download, the .zip bundle will be prepared.

Depending on the number and size of the files attached, it can take a few minutes to create the download package.

When the .zip file is ready to download, you will receive both an email and an in-app notification, which you can access to start the download for the next 48 hours :

The download package

The download package is a .zip summary of all the information contained in the matter, contract, and knowledge, which you can access from the Downloads folder of your local drive.

The folders will be named by their respective LawVu ID and the Matter/Contract name

Each subfolder will have a structure that reflects any available:

  • Conversations

  • Scope

  • Files

  • Contract document

  • Amendments

  • Statements of work

  • Invoices

  • Emails

  • Matter/Contract Activity

The Summary.html file will display all components of your matters/contracts split into sections relevant to that matter/contract :


  • The .assets folder should not be changed in any way as it contains important information for the correct display of the Summary.html file.

  • Users who are limited members on matters and/or contracts will receive a message telling them they cannot export those specific items but will still be allowed to export the items they are allowed to.

  • Users who are members of private conversations and folders will have the conversations and folders included in their export.
