This article explains the conflict check report in Actionstep. Running a conflict check from within Actionstep is very simple. We have a report set up solely for this purpose which also allows you to dig deeper into the information.
To find the conflict check report go to Reports > Matter Reports and click on the "Conflict Check" report. You will find this under the General section.
|TIP: If you don't see this report in the list then ask your Administrator to set your report permissions.|
|WARNING: Permissions will still apply to the results you see in the Conflict Check. For example, if you do not have permission to see a matter then you not see it as a result of any conflict check. The same applies to any document or emails on a matter you do not have access to.|
This is where you can enter your search terms. The search term must include the full name you are searching not a part name. For example, a search for Jane Smith. You would enter Jane Smith or Jane however "Jan" will not return the search results you are after.
|TIP: We recommend that you run the HTML report first because that will allow you to drill down into the search results for deeper analysis. You can adjust the search by changing the search terms or selecting specific data sources.|
|Matters||This will search all matter names for your search terms.|
|Matters file notes||This will search all file notes within matters for your search terms.|
|Matters custom data||This will search all custom data fields within matters for your search terms.|
This will search the content of all the documents in your system but the following limitations should be kept in mind:
This will search all contact names for your search terms.
|Knowledge Base||This will search the knowledge base for your search terms.|
|This will search all emails in your system for your search terms.|

|This option downloads an xlsx, MS Excel, file to your computer. This is a great option to perform further calculations in a spreadsheet format.|

After you have selected to run the report in MS Excel you can choose to save the XLSX file directly to a matter using this button.

|TIP: A handy hint is to run the conflict check report in HTML to see the information and then save a PDF of the report directly to the matter it is associated with. The report states the date/time and who ran the report so is a great audit trail that a conflict check was completed on file opening.|
