Managing your schedule is a constantly moving target – or should we say juggle? So Amicus makes it fast and easy. Visual & intuitive. It works the way you do. Flexible views. Appointment reminders. Convenient group scheduling. Privacy settings. And so much more…
Of course the Amicus calendar is fully integrated with your client files. Anything on it appears in your files, and vice versa. A matter-centric calendar is simply essential for practicing law.
It’s integrated with your time sheets too. When an appointment is over, with one click you can get a time entry for it. With everything filled in. So your calendar translates into revenue.
You probably have many calendars. There’s one in Outlook on your PC or Mac. There’s another on your smartphone. Another on your tablet. Here’s the great news: your Amicus Online calendar appears on all of those! For example, when you enter an appointment on your Android phone, it instantly appears in Amicus Online as well. If someone sends you a meeting invitation, the invitation not only goes into your Outlook, it’s in Amicus Online as well. Accept it anywhere. Drag and drop an appointment to a different day in Amicus Online, and it changes in those other places as well.
Visual, powerful legal scheduling – the depth and flexibility you need
Client matters are the building blocks of your practice – you open a file for each. Everything you do and everything you bill revolves around these files. Amicus Online understands this. It makes all your files and all the file content instantly accessible, better organized and much easier to use.
By just clicking on a file you can see all the associated people, appointments, tasks, documents, emails, phone calls, time spent, expenses, bills and more. Plan the next steps. Organize the work. Review the history. Report to your client. Everything is at your fingertips.
Files are a tremendous organizational tool. They help you see everything that you are doing in the context of any given client matter. For example, you send and receive hundreds of emails. They are all in your inbox or sent items. But there are so many of them!
If you want to see just the ones related to the Widgetco matter, go to its File – there they are. All the Widgetco documents are there too. As is everything else. So you can work in context, knowing that anything you do will appear anywhere else it needs to, and will be available to everyone else who is working on the file as well.
Calculating Legal Dates
The practice of law has so many rules involving time periods. Time for filing a defense, time for making title requisitions, time for notice of a meeting, time, time, time … You can spend a lot of time making sure you get the time right!
Amicus Online can help. Its handy Date Calculator will quickly count the days for you, and even take you right to the calculated date in your calendar.
Perhaps you need to quickly figure out a date that is 15 days from today. Does the legal rule require you to count calendar days or business days? Amicus will do either, and account for statutory holidays as it does so. Click ‘Show me the day’ to automatically open your calendar to the calculated date.
Or you might need to know the number of days between two dates. Again, the date calculator makes it easy.
