This week we cover Keyword searching, emailing documents and Tree View. Let's get started!

 

Keyword Searching

The most basic Casemaker search is the keyword search. It can also be the most complex if you wish – just use the search operators found in the blue Search Tips link under the Search button. To search first select your jurisdiction from the jurisdiction menu, then type in your word or words in the search bar and hit the blue search button. The keyword search can be found in other places as well. When you are viewing the list of cases you discovered in a previous search you can narrow that search by keyword in the left menu. If you are looking at a list of citing references you can also narrow that list by keyword on the citing references page. The radio button selections below Casemaker search bar defaults to keyword. You may find that you can still enter things that are not keywords and get results, however, they may not be as accurate. You certainly can leave keyword selected and enter in a case citation – but you may get more than just the result you were seeking. In those cases, you may wish to choose a more specific search type.

Emailing Documents

Have you have been viewing a document in Casemaker and wanted to just email it to your client or colleague? Casemaker allows for just that! To email a document to your client, your colleague, or even yourself – you first need to click on the envelope icon located in the upper right-hand corner of the document in the dark gray bar. A pop-up window will appear giving you a number of options to choose from. You can select the document format. You can choose to send a PDF, Word or WordPerfect document as well as chose dual or single column format. You can also decide to include your notes or any highlighted terms. If you would like, you can attach the list of citing references and any negative treatment found as well. Make your choices then enter the recipient's email address (or addresses), a subject for the email, and a short message if you wish. Then hit the blue email button and Casemaker will email the document for you. It is that simple!

Using Tree View

Tree View is a different way to browse Casemaker! The Tree View interface consists of an expandable hierarchy is contained in a left-hand sidebar while the center area displays the document content when requested. The Casemaker Tree View interface includes all data types and the full archive of data for each respective state.

That is all for this week! We will back with more tips and tricks next week. Thanks again for making Casemaker a Valued Member Benefit.
