Annotate and share your documents
If you use Westlaw NZ and have a OnePass profile, you can now work more efficiently by annotating your documents on screen and share the results of your research with colleagues.
By using any, or all, of the function features “Notes”, “Highlights” and “Snippets”, you can now record key points on-screen as you are reviewing a document.
You can add notes to the whole document or to specific parts of the text. You can highlight text or you can save text directly to your folders.
You can choose to include annotations when you print, download or email a document, allowing you to share your observations with colleagues.
