Every document stored within a Matter will be given a Document ID, a unique serial number for that document. A Document’s ID will remain the same regardless of where within a matter it is moved to or how it may be changed or renamed. This ensures referential integrity of a document as it moves and evolves within your firm.
Note that documents stored within Firm Documents are not issued a Document ID.
LegalWorks will automatically add a documents ID, version and location to the footer of Microsoft word documents. This is a configurable option in LegalWorks (that can be turned off or on in the LegalWorks Launcher desktop app).
The LegalWorks add-in for Microsoft word stamps each document’s information into the document’s footer: making it quickly identifiable when viewing on a screen or when printed. When enabled, this feature will stamp the document’s ID, current version number and location (path) into the footer of the document.
