ILTACON ended one week ago, are you caught up yet? 🙃

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

ILTACON 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.

Peer-to-Peer Wins

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.

Looking 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. 🌶🍗

Mobile Document Review with the LINK Viewer

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
  • Thumbnails
  • Continuous scroll
  • 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 system
  • Email to a colleague or client
  • Save to My Files, the encrypted local storage in LINK
  • Air Print

You can access your documents, review, and annotate them in a single app – LINK.
