What is the LawVu add-in for Gmail?

The LawVu Gmail add-on is designed for people who work in Gmail and want to be able to save their email data into LawVu.

LawVu for Gmail enables you to work directly with LawVu from your existing Gmail-based workflow. It streamlines the process of creating and updating your legal matters by enabling you to import email content.

With LawVu for Gmail you can:

  • Create new Matters in LawVu directly from Gmail, seamlessly capturing content and file attachments from a Gmail message.

  • Track an Email Thread. This helps you save email threads as Files into the Files Tab of new or existing matters.
