LawToolBox Adds “Easy Button” for Custom Breakout Rooms and File Sharing in Microsoft Teams for Virtual Court

LawToolBox Adds “Easy Button” for Custom Breakout Rooms and File Sharing in Microsoft Teams for Virtual Court

DENVER (July 29, 2020) – LawToolBox announces an “easy button” in Outlook and Microsoft Teams enabling LawToolBox users to create their own custom templates to quickly construct virtual meetings for any business activity they routinely perform.  Just like document assembly automates forms, the LawToolBox new virtual meeting module automates meetings! For example, with a few clicks legal professionals can send out customized meeting invites for client intake, working sessions with clients and witnesses, Rule 26(f) meetings to confer with opposing counsel, depositions, arbitrations, ADR or settlement conferences, court hearings, and even trial. Admin Configuration.1. Before users can use templates, a firms LawToolBox admin creates “tags” to identify the role of meeting attendees.2. Next, a firms LawToolBox admin creates meeting templates for the main meeting and any common breakout rooms associated with that type of meeting, and again uses “tags” to identify the typical attendee who should attend that type of meeting: Main Meeting. 3. Now end-users are ready to get started using LawToolBox meeting templates to streamline their virtual practice and eliminate human-error! The meeting organizer can select from their meeting templates (created by the firms LawToolBox admin in step 2 above) to automatically create the main meeting in seconds. For example, a court can create a meeting for a “Hearing”. If a Microsoft Team has not been created for the case yet, LawToolBox will remind the end-user and can automatically create one.4. In a brand new case or matter, the main list of attendees has not yet been created, and roles have not yet been assigned to any of the attendees. 5. The attendee list can be quickly generated from...
Teams with LawToolBox versus Zoom – detailed feature comparison

Teams with LawToolBox versus Zoom – detailed feature comparison

Both Microsoft Teams and Zoom can be used to hold meetings quickly, but between the two only Microsoft Teams is integrated with LawToolBox matter management and can expand into a comprehensive collaboration solution.  In addition to the robust and unique virtual meeting module that LawToolBox has built to streamline meetings and breakout rooms through templates, there are other significant advantages to Microsoft Team with LawToolBox versus Zoom: 1.  Teams is totally configurable.  Teams can be configured for working and tracking information on specific matters, or it can be used to track general information.  Users can create Teams for a specific case or appeal, and invitees can vary depending on which Team you ae working on.  Beneath a Team, channels can be created by topic, and channels can made private, and tabs can be added extending the Team to specific documents, websites or cloud-based products.  See, Configure Microsoft Teams & LawToolBox for Legal (7 min video). 2.  Both Teams and Zoom can be used to simply start a quick meeting, but Teams also has more advanced meeting and chat features: 2.1-chat 1 to 1, 1 to many, or by any individual team/matter2.2-convert any text chat into a call or video chat2.3-you can record sessions2.4-reply to chat topics out-of-order so all communications on a topic are grouped2.5-every conversation has a complete HISTORY of communication2.6-every conversation is SEARCHABLE subject to user permissions enforced by MS2.7-any chat can be edited or deleted by owner of communication2.8-you can post screen shots2.9-you can post files2.10-post links to websites and files2.11-quickly hold meetings with external people in a team chat – video2.12-like or flag any post2.13-connect...

As a modern law firm focused on reducing risk and efficiently delivering legal services to their clients, Fernald Law Group uses LawToolBox deadline calculators based on the applicable rules of civil procedure to automatically generate their deadlines. Because LawToolBox deadline management tools are embedded directly in their Outlook Inbox where legal professionals spend a large portion of their day, tools to manage deadlines are always at their fingertips! Fernald Law Group has a complex litigation practice, and they use LawToolBox to manage rules-based deadlines, edit deadlines, add judge-specific scheduling orders, and track ad hoc miscellaneous events like client meetings and deposition dates. Importantly, deadlines synchronize to the calendars for all team members. LawToolBox delivers several benefits to Fernald Law Group that not only include saving time by streamlining the calculation of deadlines, but also creating a culture of accountability through a centralized deadline management system. These efficiencies are passed on to the firm’s clients, and by automating the calculation of deadlines, the firm can spend more time on the substantive issues that will ultimately win or lose a case. “The ease of use, added features and back up calendaring obtained through LawToolBox in the cloud is a critical tool for our Firm. The ability to automate my case deadlines by matter from my Outlook Inbox makes it easy and gives peace of mind that I’ve got my deadlines covered.” – Brandon C Fernald Do your attorneys rely on Outlook calendars to track their deadlines? Is the law firm staff manually calculating deadlines? Are you entering deadline into calendars one-at-a-time? How does the law firm find out about and implement the court’s...
