- Do I need to accept each invite? No, they will be added to your calendar without having to accept each one.
- If my trial date changes, do I need to go & delete all the old deadlines off the calendar first before I re-import the new ones? No, the software will automatically remove them from the old date & move them to the new date once you have re-imported. When an individual deadline needs to be modified, select the deadline to be edited, choose “remove” and then edit the deadline and click “update”.
- Do I need to import the deadlines from all the cases? Or will it do it automatically? It will not import automatically. You will need to go into each case & import the deadlines case by case.
- Can I send a couple of deadlines to my clients or co-counsels calendars? Absolutely! The deadlines will go to the email address you enter in; be it yourself, your client or your co-counsel.
- Does this service cost money? Nope, it is free!
- I added a new deadline today. Do I need to reimport? Yes, you need to reimport the deadlines every time you change something to ensure it updates on your calendar.
