Time Matters® and Billing Matters® 13 New Features & Enhancements

Client Portal Online File-Sharing

Time Matters 13 software streamlines the document-sharing process to help you be more productive while reducing the risk of unauthorized access. A new, integrated client portal—powered by technology from WatchDox™, a leading provider of secure file-sharing, mobile productivity and collaboration technology—allows you to share your Time Matters documents online with client, experts and other third parties.

The online file-sharing capabilities in Time Matters offer control over and protection of shared files:

  • Define who can access the file—only the contact(s) associated with the matter, anyone with the same email domain as the contact(s) or everyone
  • Determine what they can do with the document—view, print or download
  • Prevent screen captures of the file by displaying only small areas at a time
  • Identify the time frame that they can access the document
  • Track the file’s whereabouts at all times and maintain an audit trail for compliance purposes
  • Revoke access to files anytime

Contacts are notified of shared files by email and can view the files from any Internet-connected computer, smartphone or tablet.

* NOTE: Customers must subscribe to a current Time Matters Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP) to access the online file-sharing service. Up to a total of 5 GB of data per firm may be shared and available online at one time. LexisNexis reserves the right to modify these limits at any time.

Automatic Data Backup
Regular backups of your Time Matters data can help your firm recover quickly from any disaster with minimal impact on client service levels. Better yet, regular backups can reduce the risk that you will fall behind or miss an important date or procedural step that could lead to a malpractice claim.

Time Matters 13 lets you schedule and automate backups of your Time Matters database and Time Matters shared file directory to help protect you from the unexpected. You can specify a time of day for the backup that’s convenient for firm members and the backup frequency. You can also perform a manual backup at any time.


Usability Improvements
Usability improvements in Time Matters 13 will help you work more efficiently in the software:

  • Sort records by date and time in the Contact Timeline, Matter Timeline and Attachments List to make the most recent items—likely the ones you’re looking for—readily accessible
  • Color-code matters within the calendar to easily identify related tasks and events, as well as visually remind you about the billable time you’ve worked throughout the day
  • Be more productive through improved Messenger performance
  • Take advantage of all the changes and improvements in new releases sooner with a simpler process for new server and workstation installations
