Transferring data to RelativityOne

Before transferring data to RelativityOne,

  • Review the Data migration topic to understand the various options for data migration to the cloud that exist for our new RelativityOne customers.
  • Review the Data transfer topic for an overview of the Data Transfer tools you have access to.

Reviewers generally work within workspaces, while system admins usually work both within workspaces and from within the admin area, Home button.

The following will help familiarize you with the Review Interface.

For system admins, you can use these landing pages to explore different applications within RelativityOne.

RelativityOne downtime windows

The advantage to RelativityOne is that we maintain and upgrade your software to ensure that your business operations in RelativityOne run smoothly and that you always have access to the latest features and defect fixes. We require regular downtime windows to do this, typically during non-business hours.

Please refer to RelativityOne maintenance downtime windows for more information on this schedule.

RelativityOne repository workspace

When installed to an existing workspace, the RelativityOne repository workspace application converts the workspace into a more streamlined version for performing early case assessment (ECA) on processed data. This limited workspace is equipped with Relativity functionality you need for early case assessment while providing more cost-effective pricing for storing data that may not be actively used in a case.

Note: You cannot use a repository workspace for review or production purposes.
