10 Use Cases for Lupl Workstreams
Workstreams are an infinitely flexible way to plan, organize and deliver legal work. Here are 10 easy ways Workstreams can streamline your next matter beyond pure task management.
Build and manage a budget
Tired of building a budget and scope in Excel, Outlook or Word? Build and manage your scope, budget and assumptions with Lupl’s prebuilt “Budget” workstream. Keep everyone informed of status, spot risks early and reduce write-offs. Easily export to Word or Excel as a fee proposal or status update.
Track issues and risks
Maintain and manage an Issues List or Risks Register for your deal or case. It’s easy for relevant stakeholders to check the status and assist in prioritizing and approving open issues. It also helps with delegation and expectation management.
Track approvals for documents and other items
Assign and track approvals using custom fields so that everyone knows who needs to approve what and by when. When you implement a centrally managed approvals workflow, you increase the efficiency and timeliness of your client delivery.
Coordinate a multi-jurisdictional review with local counsel
Build a custom tracker to keep up with your progress while gathering counsel advice in multiple jurisdictions. Restrict your field selections, add color coding and insert any number of columns to track each stage of the review. The tracker sits alongside all your other workstreams, documents, discussions and key dates in Lupl. Plus, it’s the perfect use case for combining your tracker with our new Forms feature.
