Improvements to Email Families, Admin Workflows, and the Login Experience

Last Friday was another release day over at Everlaw, and as always, we’re excited to share with you the latest and greatest!

The recent release includes features designed to streamline your login experience, improve metadata processing, and provide you with a smoother introduction to Everlaw functionality. Read on for a very brief run-down of the new features! As always, you can read more detail in the release notes, now also linked to from our homepage.

Single sign-on (SSO)

Organization administrators can now enable single sign-on (SSO) for all users in their organizations. This will allow users to log in via their existing directory service (e.g., GSuite, Active Directory, LDAP) and prevent them from having to maintain separate login information for Everlaw. SSO login
SSO can either be enabled for an organization, but not required; required for the organization; or left disabled.

Metadata processing for multilayered email families

With this release, we’ve changed our approach to embedded emails (emails attached to other emails). Now, native embedded emails uploaded to Everlaw will have Parent ID and Family metadata values that clearly link them to the emails that contain them.
