Distinguishing Between Issues and Issue Tags


Issues and Issue Tags are interrelated, but have different functions within DocJuris. The simplest way to visualize how Issues and Issue Tags interact is to consider that an Issue encompasses a legal concept and the Issue Tags are how Users train the DocJuris system to organize by relevancy. 


Issue types are a collection of legal concepts that are negotiated. Users can create Issues in a Playbook if you have "administrator access". When Issues are created in a Playbook, Users have a lot of flexibility on how they are applied. Issues can be part of a simple checklist or can become more robust by filling out any of the accompanying information fields. Like other features in DocJuris, the use can scale from a broad application to a surgical level of analysis.

Issues can be reorganized in alphabetical order, importance, complexity, or by any other method. Users gain further functional control by grouping Issues together as an Issue Group.

Issue Tags

Issue tags are identically configured as Topic Tags within the Contract Analyzer, but are used in a different way. DocJuris has built-in, pre-coded Tags to cover most common legal concepts. But if the 350+ Pre Configured Tags do not adequately cover the field of interest, Users have the freedom to create new Custom Tags throughout the review process.

As review teams Tag certain provisions (linking clauses to terms), the DocJuris tool will learn and grow through tagging patterns resulting in the surfacing of more robust and insightful Previous Redlines.

How do they work together?

Within each Issue type, a User can configure high-level information to help train the AI system. As more information is inputted and used, the DocJuris tool will search more effectively for that subject matter as a contract is reviewed. The expert driven AI system will utilize this information to surface, or present, the most relevant Previous Redlines.
