Projects in Reveal are often equivalent to a specific legal matter or case.  Projects are associated with specific Companies and Clients. There may be multiple projects for each Client (along with multiple Clients for each Reveal Company instance). Client Users are grouped and assigned to Projects, security is set, data is loaded and processed, and archives of projects may be created.

The creation and management of Projects is done by project managers within the Company Admin section of Reveal's Admin menu option. Here are the steps to setting up a new Project, first in Company Admin in the Reveal user interface, then in Reveal Review Manager.
