Learn More about Administrator Permissions
There are three different levels of administration on Everlaw:
1. Organization administrators are on an annual contract and have special access to certain features.
2. Database administrators have the ability to upload and delete documents in a database. They can also create projects and request deletion of a database. They can also grant database permissions to other users (ability to upload or delete documents).
3. Project administrators control the project settings, which includes giving users access to projects, controlling their project permissions, creating codes and persistent highlights, and more.
Depending on your level of permissions, you may have access to some or all of these tools. You can learn about each of these roles below.

ECA databases comprise of at least two projects, an ECA project and a Review project. From the ECA project with limited functionality, you can identify and promote documents for full review in the Review project. Read the ECA databases help article.
Uploading and deleting documents affect which documents are in your matter’s database. This is why upload and delete permissions are categorized under database permissions. Read the database administration and permissions help article.
Projects under one database allow you to create new review environments using the same underlying set of documents. They are useful for multi-firm matters, or cases that have expert reviewers or consultants. Read the projects help article.
