We're excited to launch short messaging slicing to help you focus only on the portions of the conversations that matter most to your case and eliminate cumbersome redaction workarounds needed when imaging an entire conversation. Now, users will be able to select certain messages to be sliced out of your original RSMF file into a new RSMF file. You can manually select the messages you want to slice, or easily filter and mass select by participant, event types, and date ranges.

We’re removing the final series of RSAPI end-points. This is part of an ongoing process to consolidate the developer experience onto our modern RESTful Kepler APIs. These APIs provide access to the same functionality, but are more performance, reliable and easier to work with. For more information on the RSAPI removal, please see the RSAPI Deprecation topic in the developer's guide.
To enable your teams with a faster, more consistent review experience across native, image, and text documents, we will standardize on the new Viewer introduced with Aero UI. The new Viewer has been set as the default Viewer on new workspaces since the launch of Aero UI. Upon the removal date, you will no longer have the option to revert to the Classic Viewer on any workspaces. Please refer to our quick reference guide to learn more about the new Viewer.
Our newest Collect data sources allow you to collect Bloomberg Vault exported chat and email data. All Bloomberg Vault chat and email data is automatically converted to RSMF.
We're excited to provide you with information about the new features launching in RelativityOne, directly in your instance(s). RelativityOne administrators will see a roll-up of noteworthy functionality made available the previous week, right when logging in on Monday mornings.

Sample-Based Learning usage has steadily declined over the past few years. Additionally, the flexibility and real-time intelligence of Active Learning ensure you can find what’s most important in your case faster. As of 25 September (Australia and EMEA)/9 October (Americas and East Asia), you no longer have access to Sample-Based Learning projects. You can report on legacy project data until March 2022 by running the Report Sample-Based Statistics script, available in the Scripts tab of each workspace. The script will create a URL which you can use to access the report.
Automated Workflows now leverages your local time preference to display time inputs and other associated time metadata in Scheduled Run.

The Restore step of ARM will now automatically uninstall all non-required applications that were not set up to install, and deprecated applications. This includes event handlers. All data connected to applications will remain untouched.
Branding Agents now run on RelativityOne's new compute platform, which enables seamless dynamic scaling and improved resiliency. Users will no longer need or be able to add or modify Branding Agents within their RelativityOne environment.
Ink drawings, as well as any other alternate content in PowerPoint, will now show up in the native and image viewers. Any drawn words, however, will not be searchable.
Relativity Review now supports the ability to replace natives and images directly in the document actions dropdown menu, thus saving time and clicks whenever a document needs to be replaced. This is a great solution to quickly replace a document that may have an error in the native document
Sample-Based Learning usage has steadily declined over the past few years. Additionally, the flexibility and real-time intelligence of Active Learning ensure you can find what’s most important in your case faster. As of August 19, 2021, you will no longer be able to create new rounds of Sample-based Learning projects. Sample-Based Learning will be fully deprecated on September 16, 2021.
Archive now has additional file and database validations that double check your files are copied correctly and that your database is not corrupted. This increases accuracy with archiving, but may impact performance.
You can now automate running an imaging set or multiple imaging sets in an automated workflow with desired triggers.

Google is an increasingly important data source in investigations and matters. We're improving our Gmail message threading accuracy by adding the option to map Message-ID, In Reply To, and Message Reference fields to the Analytics Profile. This will give you a better picture of where Gmail messages live within a thread, producing more inclusive, accurate results and a better user experience when reviewing.
To help you improve your ability to work with global teams while maintaining security, we’ve introduced a user login map in the RelativityOne Security Center that displays where your users are accessing RelativityOne, with indicators for less secure logins.

With Migrate, you can now set up a default migration configuration, choose and assign workspaces for migration, preview the migration before executing the data transfer, and if needed, retry failed workspace migrations easily from the same user interface. Migrations are easy to track, and you can configure email notifications to alert the proper resources in your organization of migration status.
Process multiple terabytes of data per day (depending on the data set).
To streamline your processing experience, we’ve consolidated the functionality on the Document Errors Tab into the Files Tab so that you can take advantage of all file insights and actions in a single location. This includes details on files that have been discovered, metadata, as well as errors.
This section contains What's New Announcements up to the previous version of RelativityOne, and items included with the previous version's release.
New project type permissions in Redact allow for greater control over who on your team has the power to redact on a project-by-project basis. With project type permissions, enabled users can draw markups on native PDFs, native Excel files, and images. These permissions are automatically applied to any of your users who previously had permission to place and edit manual redactions and can be easily toggled on for those who did not.
Now you can easily batch enable two-factor authentication across your users, ensuring everyone in your organization can log in using the most secure process possible.
The Files tab (formerly Discovered Files tab) is now the centralized error data hub for Processing. This tab now provides more views with more robust file-level information about your processing errors, which you can use to take the appropriate actions to resolve them.
You can now use the PDF mass operation to include PowerPoint comments and speaker notes when creating PDFs. You can also create images from those PDFs.
Redact allows you apply markups to imaged documents, Excel files, and PDF files either manually or automatically as part of a project. You determine how a project applies markups by creating rules that establish what words, terms, and/or regular expressions will receive markups.
