What's new in Relativity Server 2022

Discover new and enhanced features in Relativity Server 2022 that will help you tackle every phase of your e-discovery projects.

For a full list of enhancements and changes from each Release, see the Relativity release notes. For more information on Relativity infrastructure requirements, see What's new in the infrastructure

Aero UI

We have rebuilt our user interface from the ground-up to provide you with a faster, more intuitive user experience while maintaining all the power you need to conduct e-discovery. The four pillars below encapsulate the main changes you will see:

  • Modern look and feel: You will notice changes to our colors, iconography, page components, and more. This is more than just a coat of paint. We have completely rethought how users experience our product to make it intuitive, clean, and easy on the eyes.
  • Lightning-fast performance: We have made several performance improvements in our architecture which will greatly decrease doc-to-doc and jump-in speeds.
  • New Viewer: Our new document viewer is fast, easy-to-use, and has exhaustive front-end API coverage to offer you and your users a simple, yet powerful, document review experience.
  • Workflow-based navigation: Designed to get you to what you need faster, we have delivered an improved tab navigation experience, reducing unnecessary clicks and decisions, so you have exactly what you need to accomplish your work.

Processing: New error remediation workflow

The new error workflow now lives in the Files tab, giving you a central hub for all file metadata and error information. This helps streamline the process of discovering the root cause of errors and easily act to resolve them.

Processing: File-level republish

We have added an easy way to republish previously deleted files. Additionally, you can map the fields you wish to have in your workspace and republish the content directly onto existing records.

Processing: Automatic de-duplication updates upon document deletion

De-duplication will now automatically update and promote new primary records for review, remaining in-sync when records are deleted from the Documents tab.

Processing: File type inclusion and exclusion

You can now choose which files are discovered during processing by adding a list of file extensions to be included or excluded to the processing profile.

Processing: Saved filters on Discovered Files view

Filters created on the Files tab can now be saved so you can revisit them at any time. Saving time when moving through your processing workflow.

Short message review: Improved user experience and hovers

We have made several user experience enhancements to our short message review capabilities, including highlighting missing timestamps, incomplete data, and edited text.

Short message review: Read receipts and direction

Now you can identify the direction of a message from the custodian perspective and any associated read receipts.

Search: Contextual search thumbnails

Contextual search thumbnails provide the surrounding 100 characters before and after search hits from the in-Viewer search box. This gives you even more context in your searches and makes it easier to navigate to the most relevant search.

Search: Inline editing for STR term modifications

You can now modify STR terms directly on the terms list page. Eliminating the need to launch a new modal window for editing terms.

Document transformation: PDF enhancements

We have made several enhancements to the PDF experience in our platform. Including updating format options when rendering PDFs, a new PDF viewer, and easier ways to export searchable PDFs.

RIP Sync: Fields mapping validation

When you auto map all fields while promoting data between workspaces, Integration Points will validate your fields and exclude those that might fail a job.

RIP Sync: Saved search field mapping

You can automatically map saved search fields with the click of a button when creating Integration Points for exporting those searches.

Platform: New authenticator app integrations and two-factor authentication self-enrollment

We have introduced new integrations with authenticator apps like Google and Microsoft Authenticator, and made the experience for two-factor authentication more self-service.

Platform: Modern RESTful API

We are consolidating the developer experience onto our modern RESTful Kepler APIs. These APIs provide access to the same functionality, but are more performant, reliable, and easier to work with. RSAPI surface remains available but deprecated and will be removed from Relativity Server in 2023.
