How do I manage my documents?

vLex incorporates various document management tools that, based on a list of results, allow you to select and mark the documents as favorites, archive the documents in folders and create alerts to keep you informed of the latest search-related updates. In addition, you can print, save or send the selected list.

On the left side of the screen you can quickly access all the document management tools: history, folders, favorites and notes.

History

This tool allows you to access your search history, documents, categories and works queried in vLex.

Access your search history through the “History” option in the left sidebar on the screen to browse all the searches and documents you have previously visited.

Using the “Filter history” option, you can access the results or files consulted in a certain period of time (month, day or date range). This page provides access to the search history, documents, categories and works consulted in vLex.

Folders and favorites

The folders and favorites tool allows you to create your personal documents classification and organization, according to your preferences and needs. Also, it gives you the option of bookmarking and saving documents that you frequently consult for easy and quick retrieval on the platform.

  • Folders

Under “My Folders” you can view and manage all previously created folders and subfolders.

  • Favorites

After accessing a document, you will be able to view a small bookmark at the top of the text. Selecting it will turn it black, indicating that you have already listed it as “Favorites”

All documents marked as favorites are located in the “Favorites” section of the left-hand side menu bar.

Notes and highlights

The notes and highlights tool is used to handle a document by marking interesting fragments and creating annotations.

  • Notes

Create a note by accessing a document and highlighting the fragments that interest you.

Once the note is created, it will be recorded in a section to the right of the document and saved in the “Notes” section of the left side menu.

  • Highlights

Select a fragment that you find interesting in the text and save it with the Highlight option.
The highlighted selections are located to the right of the text itself, so that they can be displayed in successive queries.
