Efficient organization is vital in your legal practice, whether you store information using physical cabinets for paper-based documents or utilize legal practice management software. While traditional methods involve physically categorizing case files with colorful tabs, firms that embrace legal practice management software can benefit from a more advanced solution — custom tags. By using PracticePanther’s custom tags, attorneys can effortlessly access specific matters and contacts, activities, files, calendar events, and client information, as well as generate detailed reports with a few simple clicks. In this blog, we will dive into the various ways PracticePanther’s custom tags simplify and streamline your practice, ultimately boosting overall efficiency and productivity within your law firm.

Your legal calendar serves as the backbone of your business, keeping you informed about upcoming court dates, appointments, and travel schedules. With PracticePanther, you can enhance the overall clarity of your calendar and better organize your daily agenda by labeling specific events according to your preferences with custom tags. 

For example, in cases involving divorce proceedings that require your presence in court, you can add a descriptive tag like “Divorce case” to the corresponding events in your calendar. This allows you to easily retrieve a comprehensive list of upcoming court appearances related to divorce cases by filtering your calendar with tags. This approach empowers busy attorneys to quickly identify and manage their upcoming tasks, appointments, and more. Additionally, PracticePanther’s legal calendar also allows you to color code your events, making it visibility easier to manage.
