This page explains some of the key changes in Aero UI that you should be aware of before upgrading.

AA1 - April 11th, 2020

  • The new Relativity navigation structure has one-size fits all migration strategy. To take advantage of screen dimensions, adjust the widget sizing and structure for your organization after upgrading.
  • The favorites list on the workspace portal is migrated to the new home page.
  • The upcoming releases will continue to include enhancements to the coding layout, markup navigator, and review document list views.
  • The Juniper release includes the following changes to browsers supported for Relativity:
    • Microsoft Edge 79 and above - now providing full support for Microsoft Edge based on Chromium on for MACs and PCs. However, we don’t support Microsoft Edge prior to version 79.
    • Chrome, Firefox, and Safari – the latest versions of these browsers are fully supported by Relativity. While you can continue to use older versions of these browsers, you may experience issues with them.
    • Internet Explorer 11 - moves to a new limited support model. While you can still access Relativity with IE 11, you may experience issues due to the limitations of this legacy web browser. In 2021, support for IE 11 may be discontinued.

Tab Navigation

Listed below are common FAQs regarding the new Aero Tab navigation.

How will my tabs in existing workspaces change?

  • Starting in AA1, you will see the new sidebar and three levels of tabs. In order to accommodate this change, we have a standard migration strategy for all workspaces. We have devised this strategy so that you instantly see some Aero Tab Navigation benefits while not disrupting your current tab structure. No tabs will be removed and security permissions will persist. With that in mind, your workspace's new sidebar will look something like this sidebar:
    • Documents - the documents tab, which shows the Documents page.
    • Review Batches - the review batches tab, which shows the Review Batches Tab.
    • Processing, Indexing & Analytics, and Case Dynamics tabs - these act as a parent folder to the current child tabs that you have in your workspace now.
    • Configure - configure options (or for some this might say admin or workspace admin). This tab contains the workspace admin tabs that are in your workspace today.

Finally, anything not mentioned above will be found in the second to last sidebar tab "Other Tabs" or in the All Tabs Menu.

This grouping is intended to jumpstart you into the new tab navigation. As always, admins with the appropriate permission can still customize the tab navigation structure to fit yours and other users' best needs, so you to have the ability to configure them as you see fit, including moving your most frequently used tabs onto the sidebar.

If I want to change existing workspaces from that default tab setup on 4/11 or later, how do I do it?

The process for changing tab order will be mostly the same as it is in the classic UI. To change the position of a tab, you will need to change the order number on the Tab Information page.

In order to accommodate the changes we made in tab navigation, we also added two new fields to the Tab Information page. The fields at the top of this form should look familiar to you. If you look towards the bottom, you will notice two new fields under Tab Location.

  • The first new field is a flag called Show in Sidebar. In order for a tab to show in the sidebar, this flag must be turned on in the Tab Information page.
  • The second new field is the icon for the Sidebar tab. Select an icon from the set library in the drop-down menu to display above the tab name in the Sidebar.

Can I use a tab template that I created on existing workspaces?

Just as it is done today, any changes to an existing workspace will need to be made manually in that workspace and cannot be done via a template. You can, however, use the new tab template when creating new workspaces.
