We’re officially more than halfway through 2019 (Where did the time go?), which means it’s the perfect time to find new ways to help your firm perform its best straight through the end of the year—and Clio is here to help.
This month, we’re bringing you ideas for how to streamline, modernize, and make things easier for your firm. From even more functionality for the Documents feature in the Clio mobile app beta to highlights from our now over 150 apps in the Clio App Directory, read on for fresh ideas from Clio this month.
Enhanced Documents functionality in the Clio Mobile Beta
This month, the highly-requested Documents feature for the Clio Mobile Beta just keeps getting better. Now, we’re unveiling new functionality designed to give you even more access to the documents you need, on the go.
Now, in addition to being able to view existing documents, Clio’s mobile app beta users can also use Documents to:
- View a full-screen preview of their documents. This full-screen preview includes a landscape option. Bonus? The landscape preview option looks great on tablets.
- Share or open documents with other apps on their phone. The process is simple via the share menu in the Clio app.
- Save or upload documents from other apps on their phone. By using the share menu in the other app, users can easily save or upload documents to Clio. For example, a file in an email attachment can be uploaded to Clio via the “share” function on your phone.
Can’t wait to give the Documents features a try? There’s still time to sign up for the Clio mobile app beta and get early access to the new mobile features (like Documents) and performance enhancements that can help your practice run more smoothly. When you sign up, you’ll also have the opportunity to share your feedback, request features, and be among the first to try the brand-new Clio Mobile app interface before it’s released later this year.
Want to know what’s coming up next for the mobile app beta? The team is currently working on the next release, which will bring a long-awaited new feature to the app. Need a hint? Let’s just say that the team is up to the… Tasks.
Over 150 apps in the Clio App Directory
There are now over 150 apps included in the Clio App Directory! From email, to accounting, to legal research, it’s now easier than ever to connect Clio to your essential business tools and expand Clio with tools specific to your firm needs.
Here’s a selection of some of the most popular integrations among Clio customers:
Outlook 365 Add-in and Gmail Add-on
Whether you use Outlook 365 or Gmail, you can quickly and easily file your emails to Clio Manage to keep communications organized for every case. You can also save attachments and documents, and even log billable time directly from your inbox.
With Clio Manage and QuickBooks Online you can quickly and easily sync contacts, bills, and transactions from your practice management software to your cloud-based accounting platform. All your financial data is one one place, eliminating time-consuming duplicate data entry and mitigating risk of error.
Ruby Receptionists provides live, virtual receptionist services, so that no call from a client goes unanswered. Every call, voicemail, and message you receive via Ruby’s live receptionists automatically syncs with your Clio Grow Lead Inbox, making tracking and follow-up a breeze while ensuring no potential business slips through the cracks.
When you integrate Fastcase with Clio Manage, you can easily save research entries directly from Fastcase to the appropriate matter in Clio, keeping cases organized in one central, secure repository. You can also create Clio time entries directly from Fastcase, ensuring billable work doesn’t go untracked.
