Document Record Details

Document Records contain key information about documents in a Workspace. Document Records are the core of Legito’s Document Management. There are two types of Document Records:

a) Automatically created Document Records, generated when a new document is created from an automated template in Document Editor, containing key document information that has been automatically extracted using Legito Template

b) Manually created Document Records, which are created for documents which are uploaded to Legito, or for Documents stored outside of Legito. These records are treated exactly the same as Document Records created from Legito Documents, allowing our customers to manage all documents in one place.

Document Record content is fully customizable and may be tailored for:

a) Each Document Record Type (manually created Document Records); or
b) Each Template Suite (automatically created Document Records from Templates).

Workspace Admins can create Document Record Types and/or customize Document Record content in My Account => Settings => Document Records.

Document Records consist of the following Details

  •       Document Name – Name of document. For Legito Documents, the name is automatically extracted from Legito documents. Additional Template Tags can be used to provide more detail.
  •       Persons – Automatically extracted names of individuals and legal entities named in a document, e.g. contractual parties, clients, recipients, plaintiffs, or defendants.
  •       Stage – Current Workflow Stage of a document. A particular document’s Workflow Stage can be updated by use of the dropdown.
  •       Owner –The user currently responsible for the document. The document Owner can be changed to any user registered in the Workspace (provided that user is visible by permissions).
  •       Edit Document or View Document – Depending on User’s permission to the Document Record or current Workflow Stage, Users can modify a Legito document in Document Editor and create a new Version or view the Document.
  •       Download Document – Download Legito documents in file formats including Word and PDF.  Non Legito Documents (uploaded files) can be downloaded in their original format by clicking on the file or clicking the “Download Uploaded Document” button.
  •       Approvals – Area where a user with appropriate permissions may appoint Approvers and appointed Approvers may approve or reject the Document (Document Record).
