Will I need an internet connection to view my eBooks on ProView?

No, you can access your titles on ProView while you are offline. You will need to first download your titles for offline use, which requires an internet connection.

You can download publications from the library by choosing "Download title" from the overflow menu on the title card of the publication you wish to download. You can also download a publication from within an opened title by clicking the download icon in the header. Once the titles have been downloaded, you can access them through the ProView web application without an internet connection. You can access, read and search your downloaded content while offline.

How many eBooks will I be able to fit on my device?

The number of titles that can be downloaded to a device will depend on several factors: the available disk space of the device; the size of the downloaded files; and the amount of space the browser has allocated to the ProView website.

What devices is ProView compatible with?

The Thomson Reuters ProView web-based application is accessed via supported internet browsers. With the new ProView web application, offline capability is now available from your browser. The new web application has a responsive design and is compatible with desktop, laptop, and mobile devices.

Can I access my ProView titles on a different reader device like Kindle?

No. Thomson Reuters ProView titles are only accessible from the ProView website. You may access the website using a browser via your device but you cannot remove the content from the eReader.

How will eBooks be delivered?

After purchasing a Thomson Reuters Proview title from our eStore you will receive two emails. An order confirmation and a Welcome to Proview email. The welcome email will contain the registration key which grants access via OnePass to your Proview eBook.

How will I be able to purchase eBooks?

You can buy eBooks directly from our eStore. You can also make purchases through your account manager or our customer care team by calling 1300 304 195.

The print version of my title has published but the eBook is yet to appear in my ProView Library?

On occasion the print and eBook publication date will not match exactly. If your eBook has not arrived 10 workings days after the print publication date then please contact our technical support team on 1800 020 548 or by email - TechCare.ANZ@thomsonreuters.com

Can I purchase firmwide or multiple user access on ProView?

If you're interested in firmwide or multiple user access to a title on ProView then please contact your account manager or our customer care team by calling 1300 304 195.

How long do I have access to my Thomson Reuters ProView title for - will it disappear once a new edition is published?

No, your purchased Thomson Reuters ProView title will not disappear. You will continue to have access to every Thomson Reuters ProView title you have purchased.

Can a SSO user download a title for offline use?

Yes. The user needs to download the ProView title by accessing via their organisations SSO link. Navigate to the title in the library and select the download option from the three dots button next to the title. Create an offline password when prompted and the download will commence. When the user is offline, they can access that title not by using their SSO link but the standard URL for ProView - https://next-proview.thomsonreuters.com/

Can I create deep links to specific titles as a Single Sign On (SSO) user?

At this stage creating deep links for SSO is not possible.

How do I access IP Personalisation?

Your orgnisation needs to request the ability to perosnalise the account. This can be done by contacting our team TechCare.ANZ@thomsonreuters.com. For organisations that have requested perosnalisation access, the individual user needs a OnePass account to personalise. Using the organisations IP link, the user selects Sign in using OnePass under the Account option at the top right of the ProView site. The user will need to sign in or register for OnePass to access personalisation features.

How do I access features such as bookmarks, annotations and downloading titles for offline use with IP access?

To access these features the user needs to utilise IP Personalisation access.

I have an IP firmwide authenticated account.  What does the change in URL mean for me?

While access via IP authentication will continue after the launch of the new browser version and your old IP access links, including deep linking, will redirect to the new location, Thomson Reuters is in the process of replacing IP authentication with more secure and functional options including Single Sign On and OnePass. To find out the best option for your organisation contact TechCare.ANZ@thomsonreuters.com

What is IP access ProView?

IP access ProView allows individuals from an organsiation that are on the designated IP range of the organsiation to gain access to the library of ProView titles that the organisation has purchased from Thomson Reuters.

How can I see ProView citations in new Westlaw?

Customers can utilise the intuitive search feature of new Westlaw and easily copy and paste the case citation from ProView into the search field on the new Westlaw platform. While the majority of cases cited in ProView will be held in new Westlaw (although access will be subscription dependent), there are a few instances of citations to some journals/reports that are not available in any Westlaw platform.

Will ProView link to new Westlaw?

At this stage there are no plans for ProView to link through to new Westlaw, however, we are constantly looking at ways to improve our products and will prioritise developments according to market requirements.

Can I use ProView in Incognito/Privacy mode of my browser?

Whilst ProView will work with in incognita mode, it does have some limitations, so we don’t recommend this browser mode. For features such as download for offline use, ProView relies on storing files in your browser download cache. Incognito mode will limit this action.
