Hi there 👋,
Welcome to the February edition of The InsideVu! February was a short month but a lot has happened. We love helping you work faster and sharing your success stories so read on for a quick review of what’s new!
PS: If you want a digest of previous versions of The InsideVu, they are available here in the Help Center. If you have any questions, we’re available in the chat 24/7.
The LawVu Team
1. Unified view of your contract
Didn’t love switching between tabs to keep your contract data up to date? Now your contract file is in the same tab as the details so you see them both together. The new overview tab makes it easier than ever to update and/or verify contract data in LawVu.
Watch the video below to learn what’s new.
2. Contract file preview on upload
To manage your contracts more effectively, inputting accurate data to LawVu is critical. You now have a preview of the uploaded contract file alongside the contract creation form during the upload process so you can enter accurate key contract data more efficiently.
3. Handy URL for contract creation
Our customers love using URLs to quickly take users to specific forms to create matters. Now you can do the same for your contracts. This is especially useful if you want to share direct links to specific contract forms. Bonus tip! Add a contract URL to a button in your knowledge base articles to take users straight to the relevant contract form so they don't have to search for it.

Join our early access programs!
The early access programs provide our customers access to features before they are released and a great opportunity to give feedback. Throughout the program, you’ll have access to dedicated customer success and product management support with helpful documentation and resources. We have the following early access programs available:
Conditional intake forms
LawVu conditional intake forms enable legal teams to provide a better experience for the business when placing legal requests. Conditional intake forms allow legal teams to set up forms that show relevant fields based on users' responses to improve accuracy, remove complexity and provide a better-structured intake process.
Salesforce integration enhancements (coming soon)
Business users have always been able to create contracts straight from Salesforce, get visibility on contract statuses, and easily download a copy of the contract document once it is executed. Now you and your Salesforce users can continue to be on the same page and work more efficiently together by allowing them to:
Create one or more matters from an Opportunity in Salesforce, making it easier and more efficient to engage legal throughout the sales process
Update key contract data stored in Salesforce and get the changes captured in LawVu
Upload a new version of a contract from Salesforce
