What are Litify Actions?

The Litify Actions component is a managed lightning component on Litify. This component contains many built-in Litify Actions to streamline your firm's processes, automatically update fields, and notify firms on LRN of case changes. Use Litify Actions to transform referrals into intakes and intakes into matters, and carry over important information between these records. 


Why use Litify Actions?

Use Litify Actions to ensure that the appropriate fields carry over between records, to sync important information with LRN, and to streamline your business processes. We suggest you use Litify Actions to update the Status field on referrals, intakes, and matters, rather than editing the Status field manually. This ensures that the information syncs with LRN, so everyone stays informed about changes in a case.

Where are Litify Actions?

You can add the litifyActions custom component anywhere on your referral, intake, and matter lightning record pages. Firms often choose to place Litify Actions on the right side of their referrals, intakes, and matters pages. See this article to edit a lightning record page.  

Litify Actions Permissions

To perform certain actions, users must be assigned the appropriate permission sets. For example, to perform actions on Litify Intakes a user must be assigned Litify Intake User permission set.


There are several Litify Actions on each Litify product.


Litify Referrals Actions

Investigate - Use this action when you agree to contact the client on a received referral. You will see the client's contact information fields after investigating. This action populates the Investigated at field on the referral record. More information: Investigate a Received Referral on Referrals Pro.
