Our mission is to drive better business outcomes by providing the world's leading and most-loved platform for in-house legal teams. One of the ways we do that is by investing in new features and enhancements that help you get more value from the product.
Last year we shipped more than 20 feature updates to make LawVu even better for you, your team, and your business. I’ve included a summary below so you don’t miss out on anything.
If you need any help using these (or any) features to get the most out of LawVu, just reply to this email to set up a time to chat.
This year we’ll continue to make LawVu even better. We will make sure you know about all the new features via in-app announcements, emails, and The InsideVu.
The LawVu Team
A better user experience to make you more productive
Features that seem small can make a big impact on your day to day efficiency, so you have more time to do high value work. Here are some of the changes we made to your workspace that will help you work better:
More ways to make Matters and Contracts work for you
It’s easier than ever to get complete information and drive efficient workflows with these new features for Matters and Contracts:
See this help article for more information on how and when to use custom fields.
New efficiencies with teams and automatic assignments
Save time by automatically assigning individuals and teams when matters and contracts are created
If you are using Teams you can grant access to private folders to entire teams in the same way that you can grant access to individuals.
Save time and reduce risk with completions forms
The Matter and Contract completions forms add a new step to your workflows, so you can be sure critical information is captured and required actions have been completed before closing a matter or executing a contract. This saves time by eliminating re-work and reduces risk that you don’t have information or data that you need.
LawVu Admins can specify the fields which should be completed before closing a matter or contract and mark required fields that will keep users from closing a matter or moving a contract to “executed” if the fields are not filled in.
See the Matter completion form and Contract completion form in action to learn more.
You can also notify users if there are incomplete tasks.
More integrations to connect your workspace
LawVu integrations make life easier by connecting your legal workspace with the places you and your business partners work.
Now there’s a Google Drive integration to ensure continuity across your work by syncing LawVu Matters and Contracts with Google Drive. You can also open Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides directly from LawVu, so no more double handling of work.
Engage: Enhancements to maximise the value of working with outside counsel
Engage is LawVu’s solution for in-house legal teams to manage e-billing, spend and external counsel from one centralized platform.
If you’re not using Engage yet, contact us for a quick demo.
Now you can collaborate and work with outside counsel even more efficiently with these enhancements:
The New RFP Module
Save time and money with a brand new feature that streamlines your RFP process and integrates all the critical information you need in LawVu.
This brand new feature lets you create, send, track, and compare Requests for Proposals to outside counsel, eliminating extra steps and ensuring you get the most competitive price and aggregate reporting on your savings.
LawVu now supports the new LEDES format: XML 2.1, 98B, 98BI for e-billing, too.
