What is the Matter Activity Log? (Client Article)

The Activity Log is a way for clients to track & view the activity/actions that take place on a Matter.


The activity log is located on the new matter summary tab within each matter. The activity log will show what activity took place on the matter, along with who triggered it and when. This feature is very useful for reviewing the history of a matter and for collaboration when multiple participants are working across a matter.

What does the Activity Log do?

It provides a timeline of historic activities on a matter and allows matter participants to review and see what changes were made, by who and when they were made. This is especially useful for large matters spanning over long periods of time & also large matters with a large number of matter participants.


How does it work?

The Activity Log on a matter will display any activity related to the matter. Anyone that has access to the matter can see the Activity Log.
