Great grid enhancements

Our customers love our grids for visibility; the ability to customize views makes it even easier to efficiently prioritize and manage work. These enhancements to your matters grids will supercharge the way grids work for you:

  • Edit matter state from your Matters grid

You can now edit the state of your matters straight from the grid, saving you time from opening each matter individually. This is especially useful if you have a bunch of matters you need to close.

  • Add your favorite grid view to the Hub

Last month, we introduced new hub widgets so you can add your favorite grid views to the Hub. Now you can do the same directly from your matters or contracts grid; simply right-click on the ellipsis next to the desired grid view and choose "Add to Hub".

Improving your business users' experience on the Business Portal

When your business users use the LawVu Business Portal they can easily stay on top of the work they’re doing with your legal team and manage their own contracts and information. The visibility and self service the portal provide takes away time consuming back and forth for everyone. New enhancements to the “My Work” area of the portal will improve the business user experience, so they are more excited than ever to use your digital legal front door.

  • Continue where you left off in 'My Work'

Now, when business users sort or filter their "My Work" grids, their changes are saved automatically so the next time they return, the information they care about most is front and center. This means that every time they come back to the portal their grid is displayed the way they like and they don't have to make changes.

  • Export grid view to Excel

Business users can export their grid view from ‘My Work’ to Excel when they want to work in spreadsheets, create reports or manipulate data further. Just click the export button shown below to automatically download the grid view in Excel format to the computer.

Record your contract expiry date on creation

Now you can add a contract expiry field to your contract completion form. This requirement forces people to add an expiry date when uploading an executed contract or when a contract moves to the executed stage. This means you won’t have to worry about missing data!

Spend management and e-billing updates

Did you know we’ve shipped over a dozen new enhancements to spend management and e-billing capabilities this year? These updates have made it easier for customers to save time and control costs when managing work with outside counsel in the LawVu legal workspace. They include:

  • A number of features that make managing, reviewing, and approving invoices from legal service providers (LSPs) more efficient

  • New ways to interact with your LSPs, providing more flexibility and control so you can align to your preferred workflows and get started faster with spend management

There are more great features on the horizon. If you’re using LawVu spend management features and need any help with the latest updates, or if you want to learn more about spend management in the legal workspace, click the links below.

Fly through files and emails

Trying to get up to speed with what's happened on a matter or contract? In the Files tab, you can use the "Next" and "Previous" buttons to whiz through the files and email correspondence in preview mode without having to open them individually to view.
