When you log in to DISCO, you will be directed to the Matter List page. This page shows all review databases that you have access to.
You can search for databases using the search bar at the top.
If a database is missing, it may not have been migrated to the new DISCO structure. Click Go to my legacy matters to see these databases.
Each database on the Matter List page has a card with the following information:
- Matter name
- Review database name
- Client matter number
- Jump to review app
- Matter menu
- Review database menu
Matter vs. database
Organizations, matters, review databases, and users exist in a hierarchical relationship in DISCO. An organization is usually a law firm, business, or nonprofit establishment. A matter is a case, lawsuit, grievance, or other interest that concerns the organization. Each matter has one or more review databases in DISCO, which contain the documents that need to be reviewed in order to resolve the matter.
