Customizing your System for Success

April 29 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm EDT

Teresa L. Bush Esq.
Drafting Webinar

Subscriber Drafting Webinars provide continued training on various aspects of using the InterActive Legal software, usually focusing on drafting particular documents or using certain drafting options.  These webinars are free to ILS subscribers. They provide insight and training regarding specific documents and options available within the drafting systems. Subscribers will receive an email outlining the topic of each drafting webinar with instructions for registration.

Webinar Description

Every InterActive Legal drafting system includes standard time-saving features designed to streamline the drafting process.  Those features are often not evident “out of the box,” since it takes a bit of time to get used to drafting in a new system.  However, pre-answered interviews, the option to add and assemble multiple documents, and the ability to copy one spouse’s documents to create a mirror image estate plan for the other with just a few steps can minimize drafting time, and most users take advantage of those features.  Beyond those standard features are more options that each user can customize to not only save time, but also to make the system their own.  We will discuss these options to customize your system in both small ways and more advanced ways, and how those custom tools can provide the most streamlined drafting experience.

In this presentation, we will explore custom profiles, document packages, and naming conventions for matters, documents, and more.  After this session, you should understand:

  • Why custom profiles are so powerful, and how to create, use, and edit them
  • How setting up a document package (or two) can save drafting time and improve consistency
  • Why the name of a matter matters
  • How taking a few seconds to re-name documents can save time later

Please join us to learn more about tailoring your InterActive Legal drafting system to your firm and making it your own.
