LOL. I am by no means caught up. I’ve got to-do lists and piles of
sorted business cards. Plenty of follow-up yet to go. How about you?
If you were there, wasn’t ILTACON fantastic this year?
A View from a Booth
2019 was the first year of Joy. Not only do I mean the first year of
ILTA’s vibrant new CEO, Joy Heath Rush, but the first year that ILTA
felt truly back on-track.
ILTACON 2019 broke all attendance
records, at over 3,500 legal techies comprised of over 1,800 members and
1,700 business partners. Over 800 members were first-timers, which is
fantastic. I can imagine that some of the booth locations were poor at
the Dolphin. We were fortunate to have good traffic and terrific
interest in our LINK app.
The first time
we were at ILTACON in 2013, I was astonished and impressed at the level
of peer-to-peer sharing in the educational sessions. Essentially,
ILTACON is all about the people. The volunteers and members who create
the sessions. The side meetings, the lunches and dinners, the meetups in
a booth. Where else can you catch up with so many of your favorite
people in legal tech?
I’m grateful for the generosity of all the ILTA community members. Thank you all for making this such a rewarding experience.
ahead, don’t miss #ILTACON20 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. It’s like
entering a lush biosphere with fountains and rivers. Be sure to visit
Nashville proper, too, for music 🎸🎺 and hot chicken. 🌶🍗
We’ve been a NetDocuments partner for years. Recently, with Leonard Johnson heading up their partner ecosystem, NetDocuments have formalized their NetDocuments ISV Partner Program. We have used their REST APIs to give NetDocuments users access to their documents and their email in the same encrypted container app, LINK. NetDocuments is committed to the platform approach wherein both Independent Software Vendors and NetDocuments customers can develop solutions for optimizing their workflows using the REST APIs.
It’s easy to review, compare, annotate, file, and email documents all within our LINK app. LINK also offers a managed integration with the Microsoft Office apps for editing on an iPad or smartphone.
For easy and secure document review, we have integrated our own document viewer in our LINK app. When you tap on a document name in LINK, it automatically opens in the LINK document viewer. LINK renders all documents as a PDF for high fidelity to the original. If there are Tracked Changes or redlines in the document, they are rendered as well. Or, you can elect to accept them and view a clean copy of the document.
The LINK viewer provides these essential features:
Annotate in the LINK viewer: highlight, underline, strike through, and much more, including irreversible redaction; select colors, opacity, thickness; Apple Pencil is supported
Split screen view – view two documents, two versions, or an email and a document side-by-side
Indices of: document outline/edits, annotations, and bookmarks
Bookmark a page and name the bookmark
Search by term
Go to a page number
View one page up or two pages up
Rotate the page orientation
You may view a document in DMS (content management), an email attachment, or a document saved to My Files local, encrypted storage in LINK.
After you have reviewed, and possibly marked up, your
document, you then have these quick options:
Check-in to your DMS or content management
Email to a colleague or client
Save to My Files, the encrypted local storage in
You can access your documents, review, and annotate them in a single app – LINK.

We are back from a busier than ever ILTA LegalSEC Summit. People attend LegalSEC to genuinely learn how they can keep their law firms protected. This is no easy feat because cybersecurity is a moving target. While Big Law firms participate, there is great value for small and medium sized firms where there might not be a CISO. The Director of IT or network engineer might be the security department. The two or three days at LegalSEC are packed with information.
This year the well-received keynote by William R. Evanina, Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, was recorded. Another popular session was “Leverage These Free Resources to Up Your Security and Governance Game.” Both of these and several other LegalSEC 2019 sessions can be heard at no cost by ILTA members, here.
Heads up, save the date. Next year’s LegalSEC Summit 2020 will be June 1-3 and the location…San Antonio at the Marriott Riverwalk. If you have visited the Riverwalk you know that this is a fantastic location. Hope to see you there.
and we are a sponsor again this year. We will be at Table number one showing LINK’s latest mobile DLP features.

As someone who takes a LOT of screenshots – we make a mobile
app – I am a fan of a set of features in iOS known as AssistiveTouch. With
AssistiveTouch, you can create a virtual button on your screen. Tap the floating
virtual button on your screen to accomplish one of 25 actions. For example, you
can set the menu to take a Screenshot, go to Home, Pinch to zoom, Mute, or Speak
Screenshot, Home, or 23 other actions
Let’s start with my favorite usage. To take a screenshot on
an iOS device, at least for a klutz like me, takes two hands. You must press
the Home and Power buttons simultaneously. I must pick up the device to get the
angles right to press both buttons with both hands. But when I use the AssistiveTouch
virtual button then I simply use one finger to tap the virtual button, then tap
Screenshot. The screenshot is snapped, and I’m on to the next screen.
