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, 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 Records consist of the following Details:

  • Document NameName of document. For Legito Documents, the name is automatically extracted from Legito documents. Additional Template Tags can be used to provide more detail
  • PersonsAutomatically 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.
