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:
To see LINK’s annotation in a full workflow, watch this video.
You will see how to use LINK’s split screen, then how to annotate a PDF, and email it.
If it looks simple, that’s because it really is. If you would like to see a demo via Zoom, write to me at: contact at mobilehelix dot com.
We are updating the LINK App User Interface, starting with the Home, My Files, Settings, and Login screens. We are redesigning to give you a more polished and consistent appearance throughout LINK as well as to provide improved ease of use.
LINK’s new User Interface is lighter and in keeping with contemporary iOS and Android apps. LINK is now using the OS “system colors” so that features like Dark Mode will be supported in LINK.
Now users may choose their preferred home screen layout, per device. In Settings, select the familiar Grid mode with rows, or the new List mode. List mode is especially useful on a phone so that you can scroll through your apps.
In the LINK Controller the LINK Administrator may setview mode defaults
Always use Grid Mode
Always use List Mode
Grid Mode on Tablets; List Mode on Phones
Users can always override the defaults by using the Settings tab on the Home screen.
Go to the Home screen Settings tab to:
Select Grid or List Mode
Select a default app in LINK. For example, to have LINK open directly to DMS or Email.
We are excited to roll out to you these new enhancements in LINK.
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 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.
The new editor has four major formatting tabs:
Font Formats, shown above
Page Formats, show above
Insert “+”, for inserting hyperlinks, tables, special characters
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.
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.
Watch this brief video to see all of LINK’s Send-and-File features.
