How to Use Notes in Law Ruler Follow
Notes are essential for any firm and allow firms to keep track of important conversations and details related to a case. Law Ruler makes adding and keep tracking of notes simple and streamlined.
After navigating to the notes tab inside of any lead/case record, you will be able to add new notes to the record and also view any existing notes. The search bar at the top can be used to search through the existing notes by keyword.
To create a new note, click on the “Add Note” button located in the upper-right corner of the tab. A pop-up will appear for you to compose your new note. In the pop-up, you will also have the ability to select a Notes Category, attach a file, and/or apply text formatting. Click the “Save” button to add the note.
You will also have the option to record a voice memo if you wish to dictate a note instead of typing it. To do this, click on the “Record a Voice Memo” button in the upper-right corner of the tab. In the pop-up that appears, click on the “Record” button to start recording the voice memo. Click the “Stop” button once you’ve finished recording. You will be able to playback the recording and you can also delete it and re-record if needed.
