Casemaker Weekly - August 8th

Wednesday, August 8, 2018  

Did you know you can track your research by client? Learn more about that this week as well how to select your search jurisdiction and how to use the Annotator. Let's get started!

 

Client Tracking in Casemaker

Need to keep track of time spent doing online research for a client? Utilizing the Client and Session Summary features of Casemaker can help. Simply create a Client and select the client each time you begin to conduct research for that client. Once you have finished, click the Sign Out link to sign out of Casemaker and view the Session Summary. The Session Summary contains the date, time and client for each search, which can be used to keep track of billable hours for the client. Please remember to print this information as it cannot be retrieved after closing the Session Summary.

 

Annotator

Casemaker's Annotator is a feature available when reviewing a statute or administrative code. Annotator provides you with a list of cases and other documents that mention or use the statute or code you are reviewing. You also have the ability to conduct a search through the documents or to limit the listed documents by subsection if needed. Links to the documents are provided, giving you the opportunity to explore how the statute or code has been discussed.

 

Get control of your searches with the Jurisdiction menu

Rather than clicking on the state you want on the homepage, give yourself more control with the Jurisdiction menu. You can select a jurisdiction or any combination of jurisdictions to search by clicking the Jurisdiction menu. This is located in the box located between the search box and the blue search button. There is a blue downward pointing arrow in the right side of this box. Clicking on this arrow will pull up the pop-up menu and from here you can check as many or as few boxes as you need. You can even select the type of data you want. Want to keep you selections as your default search? Just click the Save to My Settings button!

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.
