In December, we welcomed the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program to the LegalServer onboarding process. SDVLP works to meet the needs of vulnerable San Diego residents through the hard work volunteer attorneys.
In December we saw Human Rights Initiative and LenoxHill go live on LegalServer. Human Rights Initiative of North Texas provides legal and support services to human rights abuse survivors, as well as advocating for justice and human rights. LenoxHill Neighborhood House employs a multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to legal services for low income residents of New York City.
This month, we look forward to launching Cresent Care Legal Services on LegalServer. Crescent Care is based out of New Orleans and Baton Rouge and provides legal services to low-income individuals living with HIV and AIDS.
We are excited to announce our 2017 Training Calendar! You can subscribe to the Training Calendar through your existing calendaring system, just as you would any other external calendar.
This month we are focusing on Running/Building Reports, New User Navigation on LegalServer and LegalServer’s SMS Capacity on our Tuesday Trainings. We will also hold our monthly open Q&A session for admins and report builders on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Our community call topic is LCS/CSR Compliance this month on the last Tuesday in January, please come with your questions and thoughts!
Last month we saw four weekly code releases on the LegalServer platform and over 200 tickets closed. Much of that work was specific to individual programs and data migrations, but you might have noticed some changes. Citizenship status can now appear in the family information block (citizenship by person).
For SMS users, we continue to add features to LegalServer’s relatively new SMS tool. You can now cancel messages that were scheduled to be sent in the future.
Our team has been diving in to update immigration forms, and now has a bigger job with a slew of new forms announced last week.
As many administrators know, there are several ways to connect cases in LegalServer.
All that is background to let you know that as of this month, when you are looking at case A and tag case A as being related to case B, that newly created connection should be visible in case B. Read that slowly and it will make sense, we promise!
