Your org will be upgraded automatically

New Features

Narrow down global search to specific objects

Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint an exact party, intake, or matter you're searching for with global search. Now, limit search results with the new object dropdown list next to the search bar. Choose matters, intakes, parties, or any other object to remove excess results and see exactly what you need to see. Find more information here.



Manage tasks with more tools on list views

On task list views, you now have more ways to manage tasks. Move tasks between statuses with the kanban list view. View a list of tasks and the task detail pages side-by-side with the split view. Find more information here.



Split View:



Assign tasks to multiple users

When creating tasks, you can now assign them to several users at once. This creates a copy of the task for each assigned user. Each individual populates the Assigned To field on his or her assigned copy of the task. Find more information here.



Filter activities by your activities

On the Activity Timeline of a record, you can now filter activities by My activities. Locate your activities when a record has numerous emails, calls, and tasks on its timeline. Simply click the filter button on the Activity Timeline of a record and select filters. Find more information here.
