2014 has been an excellent year for the team at AdvoLogix. Our practice and matter management platform has continued to advance the productivity rates of our customers through enhanced workflow tools, mobile applications, new data visualization techniques and much more. A summary of our enhancements this year have included the following:

 

General Matters

  • Introduced new My Matters component, tab and Salesforce1 app. Displays all matters owned or “Participated” in by the logged in user.
  • Introduced Matter Search, searches all Matter fields and all fields on related objects. Results displayed similar to global search.

 

Matter Calendar

  • Introduced new organization-wide Matter Calendar (opposed to only Matter context).
  • Redesigned the desktop user interface.
  • Added the ability to display the Matter Calendar on a tab.
  • Added the option to display Time entries.
  • Added the option to display “My Matters” only.
  • Added user participants to be included in the selection of “My Matters”.
