I recently came across an interesting article, published in Attorney at Work, that discusses five key areas that are potentially killing efficiency in today’s legal firms. http://bit.ly/1X80nYz

These five common efficiency killers include:

  1. Staffing and task assignment errors
  2. Manual billing
  3. Clinging to paper
  4. Tethering work to the office technology
  5. Settling for outdated technology

Starting a year ago with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft added the ability to use a Windows 10 PC as a wireless display to receive video from a phone, tablet, or another Windows 10 PC. This includes the ability to use a second Windows 10 computer as an extended display for your main PC. You can actually use a Windows 10 tablet as a second monitor for your laptop when traveling.

For most law firms and legal departments, Outlook plays a vital role in their day to day operations. Whether users rely on it for email, calendar, contacts, tasks, or all of those things – its ease of use and simple interface make it a staple in just about every firm.

I’ve been a fan of the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) ever since joining Affinity and my first ALA National Conference in Nashville. I was drawn to the genuine pride and collaborative spirit I found in every new member I’ve met over the last 3 years. Yet this weekend – my first Chapter Leadership Institute (CLI) experience – completely blew me away!

Like any good Document Management System, NetDocuments contains a Retention Policy feature that will allow the Repository Administrator to apply your firm's Document Retention Policies within NetDocuments to mark documents for permanent deletion, and even set those policies to run automatically.

The module is accessed from the ADMIN>REPOSITORY>"Define document retention policies" menu, from which the retention criteria can be defined.
