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. Regular downtime windows are required 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 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: This workspace may not be used for review or production purposes.

See RelativityOne repository workspace.

RelativityOne activity dashboard

You can use the RelativityOne Activity Dashboard to obtain a high-level view of the health of your instances and users.

  • The RelativityOne Activity Dashboard will not display data from Relativity Server instances.
