I reported here yesterday that the MyCase practice management platform had added foldering to its document management capabilities. As it turns out, another practice management platform, LexisNexis Firm Manager, also rolled out foldering yesterday.
Firm Manager now allows users to create folders and subfolders and to move folders from one folder to another. Once created, folders can be attached to specific matters or contacts within Firm Manager. Once a folder is attached to a matter or contact, documents added to that folder will automatically be associated with that matter or contact. A folder can later be detached from a matter or contact.
Uploaded documents can be edited directly within Firm Manager through Microsoft Office.
