The LawVu Team
You already have great data in LawVu but now it’s easier than ever to put it to work! New dashboards and reports give you the actionable insights you need to make data informed decisions and report on your work faster. You’ll go from DATA to TA-DA! 🪄
Watch this quick video to see what’s new:
Here are 3 key things to start exploring right now:
3 new easy to use, highly visual, and interactive reporting dashboards.
Sort, filter, or drill down reports to quickly and easily get the information you need and answer key questions.
New metrics and admin reports you have never seen before.
While you’ve always been able to easily duplicate matters, now you can do the same with contracts. This new feature makes it easy to duplicate a renewed contract or generate a new contract record that closely resembles an existing one. Set up the contract once and easily create multiple copies as needed.
Here are a few quick steps:
1. Open the contract, click on the ellipsis button, and select Duplicate Contract.
2. You have the option to rename the contract, change contract document, and decide if you want to copy associated files and key dates.
3. After clicking the Create Duplicate button, you’ll be taken to the new contract where you can make adjustments as needed.
Watch this video to see it in action:
Please note: you need to be a member of the contract and have the right permissions to be able to duplicate contracts.

Rename a file in a flash
Here are two quick ways to rename a file in LawVu:
From the Files tab: simply click on the ellipses next to the file and click Rename. It’ll automatically open the file to preview mode and click on the title to edit it.
When previewing files: Open the file and click on the file name to edit. Changes will be saved automatically.
Note: you need full matter access permissions to be able to rename files.
Easily move contracts out of executed stage
If you need to void a contract or have moved a contract to the executed stage by mistake, it is easy to move it back to draft. Simply void and unvoid a contract to move it back to draft.
1. Click on the ellipsis next to the contract you want to void and select Void Contract.
2. Click the ellipsis again and select Unvoid to Draft.
3. Now you can upload a new version of the contract file. Note: If you upload a signed contract, it will automatically go to the Executed stage.
Voiding or unvoiding a contract can only be done by the Contract Owner. If you’re not the Contract Owner, you can change the Contract Owner to yourself as shown below.
