LINK App: New – List All Files

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.

Don’t you love it? 🙂

LINK App: New Editor in our 3.8 Release

LINK now has a new rich text editor. We think that you will like the look of the new User Interface. In addition, the new editor provides a much more comprehensive set of editing tools.

New Font & Page Format Tabs

The new editor has four major formatting tabs:

  1. Font Formats, shown above
  2. Page Formats, show above
  3. Insert “+”, for inserting hyperlinks, tables, special characters
  4. Undo

Also, now when Send-and-File is on, the Envelope icon is green. Tap the Envelope icon to toggle Send-and-File on and off per email.

This new editor component is used to:
• Compose emails
• Compose calendar event bodies
• Compose Outlook notes
• Compose Outlook task bodies
• Create HTML notes that are saved directly in a mobilized file system (e.g., DMS or SMB shares)
• Create signatures in email settings

One of the things that I like about our new editor is that its behavior feels a lot like Word. Since we have muscle memory for Word, it’s a natural feel.

Let us know what you think!

LINK App: Send-and-File to DMS

We are receiving more and more requests to Send-and-File to iManage and NetDocuments. Our LINK app has done this for years.

Filing email to DMS is becoming important from a governance perspective. Not only do law firms want emails to be accessible in DMS with the Matter. But some law firms want to reduce the risk of years of email in Outlook. One of our law firm customers deletes all email at the 90-day mark. Truly. Another firm archives all email after 90 days. Retrieving email from the archive is possible but time-consuming. Therefore, filing to DMS becomes more attractive to attorneys.

Even without such law firm email policies, filing email to the Matter is increasing. The key is that is filing to DMS needs to be easy.

But Send-and-File on mobile devices is rare. It requires a tight integration of DMS and Email, as well as comprehensive security to protect confidential client data. LINK provides both the easy workflow and the security. Draft the email, tap Send, then tap a Recommended, Recent, or DMS folder to file.

LINK has predictive filing, too. LINK learns where you file a certain correspondent’s email and will show you Recommended, Recent, and DMS folders. In many cases you can file to one of these folders with a single tap.

New in LINK, the attorney can now go to the LINK email settings to turn Send-and-File on or off by default. The attorney can also toggle Send-and-File off and on, per individual email by tapping the envelope icon in draft email. When the envelope is green, Send-and-File is on.

What happens when the document comparison in your app isn’t reliable?

We talked to DocsCorp about our integration of their high fidelity Word document comparison in our LINK app. We used their compareDocs SDK. It was a success for us and for our legal clients. This post is from their blog site.

Picture this: you are a lawyer who relies heavily on your devices to work outside of office hours. Perhaps you use the morning commute to fire off emails from your smartphone, or maybe you use your tablet on the couch after everyone has gone to bed and the house is finally quiet. While working on these devices, you use a secure app made especially for legal professionals. It has everything you need – access to your document management system, advanced search, Word editing and annotation, and document comparison.
