Our “baby,” the LINK App, is a full-fledged teenager now, growing by leaps and bounds and taking the car out for a spin.
If you have not seen LINK in the past 12 months, you’ll find this demo video an eye-opener. Split-screen mode and multi-tabbed view are a fantastically productive way to work on tablets. You work in several lives screens.
This new demo video is a quick way to see some of LINK’s best workflows. Use the timeline to go directly to the feature which you want to see. Let us know what you think. To schedule a demo, write to us: email@example.com.

Attorneys have always loved the annotation in LINK because anytime you open a file in LINK, annotation is immediately on the same screen. Whether the file is in DMS or another file share, or whether it’s an attachment to email, it just takes a tap to bring up the annotation menu. Annotate, then tap to email or upload to DMS or a file share.
You can even save your signature and initials in LINK so that you can sign a file with a couple of taps on the annotation menu.
In our new release you’ll see:
Improved location of the annotation menu
New features, including page display settings and grid view
Enhanced layout of the annotation tools, for clearer discoverability
A lighter interface.
We’ve gotten wonderful feedback on these improvements. Thank you!
You can get a quick look at the new UI in this 17 second video:

You will see how to use LINK’s split screen, then how to annotate a PDF, and email it.

This is a fun week for us! With this new release LINK gives you the ability to multi-task on a tablet. We have also refreshed the LINK UI with a lighter look. The feedback has been fantastic. We appreciate the enthusiasm!
The key feature which enables multi-tasking is Split Screen Mode:
Multiple live tabs in each screen
Tabs are files and apps like DMS, Email, Intranet
Drag and drop a file or app
Annotate or compare files in either screen
Keep email open while you work
Here is a 14 second preview of LINK’s new Multi-tasking capabilities.

Here is another fantastic feature request from a LINK user.
Sometimes you need a list of every file in a folder or even in a Workspace in iManage Work or NetDocuments DMS. Search may not help as you don’t know exactly what you are looking for. Now in LINK you can create the list, annotate it, then Air Print, email, import to iManage or NetDocuments, or save in LINK to My Files.
To create the list, tap the ellipsis icon to the right of any folder or Workspace. Tap “List All Files.”
The list is displayed.
To annotate, tap the Paper & Pencil icon and mark away.
After annotating, you can use the icons in the lower right to Air Print, email, import to iManage, or save in LINK to My Files. Or, tap the X in the upper left to get a succinct menu with options to import, email, or save to My Files.
LINK’s in-app annotation is an attorney favorite. LINK has long had the feature to sign and initial documents. Now we have added stamps for time, date, and time/date. No writing. Just tap to insert a signature and date.
Here’s how to do it on either a smartphone or tablet.
From the open document, tap the Paper/Pencil icon in the upper right
The annotation menu will appear on the left
To add a signature. tap the “J” icon, then tap the signature
To add a date, tap the Stamp icon
From the Stamps, tap the date, time, or date/time
Then position it on the document
That’s literally all there is to it. Now you can email the document or save it to DMS or file storage.
