Hi there,

🌹 Roses are red, violets are blue…and we’re excited to be sharing the year’s first InsideVu!

Written and designed just for you, it’s full of product updates, helpful tips, and announcements to help you get more value from LawVu. 🌹

In case you missed it, in 2023 we shipped dozens of new features and valuable learning resources. In this video, CEO and Co-Founder, Sam Kidd, shares the highlights, and you can find all the details of new features from 2023 in previous versions of The InsideVu in the Help Center.

Kind regards,
The LawVu Team

Related records: Quicker ways for legal and the business to view, create and navigate to related records

Working with related records is an important action in LawVu when you want to access key information related to any given document - including links to other documents such as amendments, SOWs or matter records for related cases.

What’s new with this update:

  • A new panel in Matters and Contracts previews and details, making it easier for legal users to view and navigate to related records, as well as create new child matters with fewer clicks.

  • Your business users are now able to view and navigate between related records more easily and extract more context from the Business Portal.

This enhancement promotes greater visibility and context, fostering better collaboration between the legal team and the wider business.

Stay tuned for more enhancements to related records

All new low/no-code workflow automation tool and LawVu Developer Center: Customize your workspace and speed up more processes

Need more than what's out-of-the-box? Leverage the new LawVu connector for Power Platform or the LawVu API to build bespoke workflows and drive greater efficiency.

LawVu’s connector for Power Platform makes it easy for legal teams to create bespoke automation workflows themselves using Power Automate within Microsoft 365. This is a secure, approachable tool which helps you automate low-value steps across repetitive legal workflows and connect to other systems used within your business without advanced technical skills.

To jump-start your automations, we’ve curated a range of starter templates and help guides based on common legal workflows. We’ll also share insights into how legal teams are using our connector to streamline their legal operations over the coming months.

The LawVu Developer Center is a great way to learn about out-of-the-box LawVu integrations or find a developer, and is a one-stop-shop for “makers”. Get everything you need to know about the LawVu connector for Power Platform, or leverage the LawVu API to build advanced custom workflows and add-ons for LawVu users. Whether you’re building for yourself, your company or on behalf of others, you’ll find everything you need to solve unique problems for modern in-house legal teams.


LSP Directory enhancements: Centralize more information for better visibility, quicker workflows, and new insights

Now you can store new information about your legal service providers in your LawVu LSP directory. With an even more robust source of truth, your team will have better visibility into key details about firms and LSPs without leaving LawVu, including location, areas of expertise and files like billing guidelines and letters of engagement.

You’ll also enjoy these additional enhancements to your LSP directory and workflows:
