Lovelace Release

Did you know we name all of our releases after famous heretics in history? We named this release after English mathematician and writer Ada Lovelace. She was the first of her peers to recognize that computers could have applications beyond pure calculation, and went on to publish the first computer science algorithm. Lovelace is widely regarded as the first to recognize the full potential of computers, as well as one of the first computer programmers in history.

Document Assembly

Heretik Document Assembly is now publicly available! This tool allows users to take structured contract data to automate and scale the drafting of post-review documents, such as amendments, notice letters, insurance claims, and more. Click below to watch a quick tutorial!

Auto-populate choice fields

Heretik Analysis can now be configured to auto-populate choice fields, such as single choice, multiple choice, and yes/no fields. Prior to this release, Heretik was capable of auto-extracting long text fields, fixed-length text fields, decimals, whole numbers, and dates. This new functionality rounds out Heretik’s Extraction abilities and provides normalized, prioritized data for more efficient review projects. Click below to watch a quick tutorial!

Heretik OCR on new file types

Heretik will now OCR images that you’ve generated in Relativity. This means we now support Heretik OCR on any file type that Relativity can image, which includes .png, .jpg, .tiff, .pdf, and .docx!

Keep your spot while toggling between between PDF images and extracted text

We’ve improved the toggling precision while switching between extracted text and PDF documents. Our Heretik Viewer now maintains your cursor location by the line of text, rather than the full page.

More control over your Data Points pane

You’re now able to toggle off all highlights for a given data point with a single click, right from within our Heretik Viewer. We’ll also only show data points with hits on the document by default, but give you the option to show all data points, including those without hits. Lastly, we indicate with an icon which data points are (Relativity) Persistent Highlight Sets vs. Regular Expressions.

New & improved Heretik OCR workflow

We now populate the following fields during the Heretik OCR process:

  1. The ‘Heretik Extracted Text’ field creates a seamless way to analyze your documents without impacting the ‘Relativity Extracted Text’ field.
  2. The ‘Heretik OCR Confidence Score’ field gives you a sense of how good or bad the extracted text results are so that you can better prioritize documents for analysis and review.
  3. The ‘Heretik Image Viewer’ field provides a quick and filterable ‘yes or no’ on which documents are ready for review in the Heretik Image Viewer.

Auto-rotate images during Heretik OCR

During the Heretik OCR process, we now automatically detect any 
landscape pages, rotate their orientation to portrait, and then re-OCR them.

Actionable suggestions for Heretik Analysis errors

Errors found during the Heretik Analysis process now trigger a ‘Suggestion’ field that provide guidance on what may be causing the issue.

Other enhancements:

  • Improved Heretik Analysis performance to better support larger document types, such as leases, insurance policies, financial instruments, and others.
  • Reduced image file size for faster load time during first page rendering, navigating sections and data points, scrolling, and clicking between thumbnails within Heretik’s Image Viewer.
  • Improved data point pane load performance and now provide a progress bar during extended load times.
  • Ability to export landscape mode for Word documents and maintain text formatting/spacing for both Word and Excel.
  • When creating new sections, Heretik auto-defaults the section type based on signals in the section heading.
  • Enhanced Heretik’s second-pass analysis rule system to improve Segmentation results.
  • Improved Heretik Models and Analysis profile creation user experience for more intuitive workflow.
  • Ability to run a regular expression analysis on a particular type of contract through a saved search. For example, if you don’t want your “lease-relevant regular expression” to show up on non-leases, you can create a saved search of leases and add it as a filter to your regular expression.
  • Ability to add new choices to fields in coding layouts on the fly from within the Heretik Viewer.
  • Cancelling a Heretik Analysis set will no longer result in stuck jobs.
