Get ready to rock reporting!

You have great data in LawVu and it is about to be easier than ever to turn that data into actionable insights and data-driven decision making with LawVu’s awesome new reports! Watch the introduction video below by Cecile du Preez, our Product Manager, for a quick walkthrough.

What’s new 🙌:

  • 3 new easy to use, highly visual, and interactive reporting dashboards

  • Sort, filter, or drill down reports to quickly and easily get the information you need and answer key questions

  • 10 new metrics and admin reports you have never seen before

  • Reports are refreshed twice a day for accurate and up to date reporting

Let's take a look at some of the new reports and how you can be ready to rock them!

Matters: a great way to see how the work your team is doing for the business. Pro tip: If you haven't closed them or you see blanks in the report, you'll know some data hygiene is in order.

Contracts: See which contracts need to be prioritized based on contracts that are due to expire so you can take a proactive approach in managing key dates and meeting obligations. Pro tip: Make sure your data is up to date so you can get more accurate report across all your work in LawVu.

Stay tuned for further updates. We’ll announce the new and enhanced reporting very soon.

Use matter tasks to get reminders about recurring to-dos

If you have tasks that need to happen on a regular basis (e.g. monthly audit report) and need to make sure it’s always on your to do list, use this tip to make sure you never miss your deadline!

If you're using tasks, you can use matter task templates and duplicate your matter. Here's how:

  1. Watch this quick video to see it in action. In the video, David Webb provides an example of a simple workflow for monthly audit board reports.

  2. Add a task in your matter to remind you of the need to duplicate a matter for next month

  3. Duplicate the matter by clicking on the ellipsis on the top right hand corner of your matter record

  4. Rename the matter to reflect the new month and keep files and tasks checked to ensure the list of tasks and files get carried over to the duplicated matter.

  5. And voila, all your files, data, and tasks along with their respective owners are carried over to the newly created matter and all you have to do now is set new due dates for the matter and its associated tasks.
