About Roles

The role that a user has in NetGovern Search determines their user rights. That is, your users will have access to certain features in NetGovern Search and not others. This alleviates system administration and security concerns around unauthorized data access. The various roles are:

  • Audit managers can create, track, manage, edit, export, and save multiple cases, and assign Auditor and Reviewer rights to other users. Only a audit manager has full management rights.
  • Auditors have a subset of the rights of a case manager; they can view, search, comment, tag, and save cases. Auditors can perform everything internal reviewers or external counsel may need to perform auditing.

Users Logging in to NetGovern Search

When a user logs in to NetGovern Search, they are prompted to proceed as a Audit Manager, Auditor, or Reviewer. The role that a user chooses determines which NetGovern Search features are available to them.

NOTE
It is possible for a user to be a case manager and reviewer, but not for the same case. If this is the situation, the user must choose which role they will play in eDiscovery.

Select from the following:

  • Audit Manager to create, track, manage, edit, transfer, export, and save multiple audits, create tags and assign Auditor and Reviewer rights to other users. Audit managers have full audit management rights.
  • Auditors to view, search, comment, tag, save, export audits, and assign Reviewer rights to other users. Auditors have a subset of the rights of a audit manager; Auditors cannot open new audits, close existing audits.
  • Reviewer to view, search, edit, comment, tag, and save audits – everything internal reviewers or external counsel may need to perform during eDiscovery.
