Summer is almost over, but the excitement is just starting to ramp up at Clio. We’ve got big changes coming up, and we’re announcing a few of the first ones here: The ability to sync trust transaction information from Clio to QuickBooks Online, and our new and improved Android App.
New Clio QuickBooks Online Trust Sync
As a lawyer, you need to stay compliant when it comes to trust accounting. We think that should be easy. That’s why our developers have worked long and hard with the accounting experts at QuickBooks Online to make it possible to sync trust transaction information from Clio to QuickBooks Online.
A fully automated trust workflow means that you can sync any retainer top-ups or bill payments involving trust between both tools, instantly removing the need for double entry and the risk of error.
Rest easy. When it comes to trust accounting compliance, we’ve got you covered.
Want to put the trust sync into action at your firm? Set it up in minutes by following these simple instructions.
Updated Android App
After over 100 hours of interviews with the people who use Clio and 60-plus prototypes, legal professionals can now access the most robust app for lawyers available on Android. Our goal was to work closely with lawyers to produce a mobile app that truly helps them complete tasks more quickly while on the go.
In the mobile era, lawyers need to take action faster. With Clio’s new Android app, you’ll see more billable tasks completed, with minimal taps required.
Here’s what’s new:
With the new Global Create button, you can easily create a new record from anywhere in the Android app. When you’re on the go, you need to keep your firm organized without getting bogged down by data entry. Global Create lets you enter new information quickly and efficiently, so you can rest easy knowing that your cases are up to date.
One tap of this button from any screen lets you create matters, contacts, documents, secure messages, time entries, tasks, calendar events, expenses or notes. When your desired action is complete, you’ll be instantly directed back to your original screen.
Tab bar navigation
Within an app, a hidden navigation menu means more clicks. Clio’s new bottom navigation bar in the Clio Android app puts what you need front and center, so you won’t be stuck clicking around to get what you need.
Access your Calendar, Matters, Time entries and home screen with just one click from wherever you are in the app. You can also use the “more” button to reveal other options if you’re looking for something else.
If you’re an Android user and you don’t have Clio’s app yet, you’re missing out! Download Clio’s Android app for free.
Note: Using iOS? Global Create and our new navigation are available to you too. Download Clio’s iOS app for free.
Integration Partner: PieSync
When a client or contact moves to a new address or gets a new phone number, where do you need to update that information? If the answer is “more than one place,” then you need PieSync.
PieSync automatically syncs your contacts between Clio and your most-used apps, so that you’ll never be stuck entering contact information in more than one place again. Every time you add or update a contact in Clio, it will automatically be reflected as a contact in your other app.
See how PieSync works with Clio to keep your contacts’ information consistent across all of the tools you use.
Tip: Sync Your Documents to Clio With AlphaDrive
AlphaDrive for Clio is a plugin that lets you create a local folder that syncs to Clio Documents. When you update a document in AlphaDrive, it automatically syncs to Clio—no need to download and upload new versions of documents when editing.
