The intuitive combination of a BOT and TAB provides easy and powerful access to upcoming deadlines across all matters the user is working on. Users can jump back and forth from quick insights in the bot to more robust tools in the teams tab. Our Teams BOT gives users a bird’s eye view of their deadlines and matters: For example, users can retrieve important Microsoft Delve insights on team members they work with.  Users can also retrieve valuable statistics on the average length of time it takes to litigate a matter, or prosecute a motion, by venue. Another important function is that users can retrieve matter deadlines and filter by search terms, calculate and edit deadlines, then add matter deadlines to Outlook calendars instantaneously. When users want more robust deadline management tools they open the LawToolBox TAB in Teams, from which they can access existing matters or create new matters. When a new matter is set up, the user assigns the applicable deadline calculator, and then LawToolBox uses the Microsoft Groups to automatically create a matter-specific document folder,...

LawToolBox Launches Deadline App for Microsoft Teams

By Robert Ambrogi on July 17, 2018 Legal professionals can now calculate and manage court deadlines from within Microsoft Teams, Microsoft’s workplace collaboration software, with the release this week by court deadline calculator LawToolBox of its Deadline App for Microsoft Teams. This new app for Teams builds on the functionality of the company’s app LawToolBox365 Office for Legal, which is an Outlook add-in that integrates with Office 365 to enable legal professionals to manage court deadlines entirely from within Outlook. With the teams app, users can jump back and forth between Teams and Outlook to manage the same matters. Jack Grow, president of LawToolBox, told me last week that Teams is becoming a popular collaboration tool at larger law firms. Adoption is likely to increase even more following Microsoft’s announcement last week that it now offers a free version of Teams for organizations of up to 300 people. The Teams app is identical to the Outlook app in its functionality. Members of a team can work in either Outlook or Teams, based on their own preferred workflows. Among the tasks that users can perform within Teams: Calculate litigation and administrative deadlines based on applicable rules. Add, update and remove case-specific deadlines. Update team member Outlook calendars as deadlines and users change. View, email and share deadlines for a matter, user, team or firm-wide. Filter by recent matters, user matters, firm matters, or matter name. View analytics showing average length of matters and motions. Use Microsoft Power BI to analyze relationships with co-workers. Search files in Microsoft SharePoint using key words and phrases. Read the full article...
