Lupl's Q2 2023 Feature Updates
In this article

    The Lupl Team has been diligently working on refining our platform to elevate user experience and broaden its applications. We are thrilled to share the advancements made in our recent development cycles and are eager to unveil a host of new features and enhancements.

    The Lupl product team works in 3-week sprints, enabling us to swiftly implement impactful modifications based on user feedback, solidifying Lupl’s position as the leading legal project management software for law firms.

    In this post, we provide a detailed overview of the key recent enhancements, organized by feature categories.

    Task Management

    We’re thrilled to introduce features that will significantly enhance the efficiency and convenience for legal professionals and lawyers.

    We’ve implemented the ‘Import Tasks’ feature. This allows you to seamlessly import your matter tasks from our global knowledgebase or from any of your previous matters. Whether you’re working on a case that mirrors a previous one or utilizing our comprehensive matter templates, you can now populate your task lists with just a few clicks.

    We’ve also improved this feature by giving you the flexibility to choose which task lists you wish to import from a template or matter. This means you can now tailor your task lists to fit the unique needs of each case, ensuring that you have all the necessary tasks at your fingertips.

    Additionally, we understand the importance of having access to your tasks offline or in a format that can be easily shared with others. That’s why we’ve introduced the ‘Export Tasks/Tasklist’ feature. Users can now export their Lupl tasks into an Excel or Word table, providing a convenient way to review, share, or archive your tasks.

    These enhancements are designed with the aim of making Lupl an even more powerful tool for legal project management, helping you manage your caseload more effectively and efficiently.

    Document Management

    In our continuous effort to streamline your legal workflow, we’re introducing several new features and improvements that we believe will greatly enhance your Lupl experience.

    One of the key updates is the ‘Automatic Email Attachments’ feature. This new option will automatically import relevant document attachments from emails sent into the Matter Channel directly into the Matter Documents. This eliminates the need for manual transfer, saving you valuable time and reducing the risk of overlooking important documents.

    For our iOS users, we’ve made some significant improvements and UI/UX changes. Notably, we’ve added the ability for users to rename documents directly on iOS. This gives you greater flexibility and control over your document management, even when you’re on the go.

    We’ve also made substantial enhancements to our ‘Document Preview Performance’. We understand that speed is of the essence in your work, and with these changes, you can expect faster loading of pages when previewing documents.

    Finally, we’re excited to share that we’re working on integrating signature status into Lupl. This means you’ll soon be able to track the status of a document that has been sent off for signature, such as with Singpass or DocuSign, without having to leave Lupl or sift through emails. This feature is designed to provide a more seamless and efficient signing process, keeping you updated every step of the way.

    Connected Apps, Open API and Integrations

    Calling all Early Adopters! We are delighted to inform you about our upcoming release of a new feature called “Create Matter by Email.”

    This feature has been specifically designed to simplify the process of creating new matters by utilizing artificial intelligence to extract essential information from emails and automatically populate it into your new Lupl Matter. As we are in the final stages of development, we are offering a unique opportunity for our users to participate in our beta testing program.

    If you are an early adopter who enjoys exploring new features and providing valuable feedback, we invite you to join our beta program. To register your interest in the beta program simply send an email to our sales team at sales@lupl.com.

    Your participation is highly appreciated, and we are eager to enhance the Lupl experience with your assistance!

    Matter Management

    Do more with your matters. In our mission to make your legal work as efficient as possible, we’re introducing two new features that will significantly streamline the process of creating new matters.

    Firstly, we’ve added a ‘Save Matter as Template’ feature. This allows organization template admins to effortlessly create new matters by selecting any existing matter to automatically pull data from. This means you can now create new matter templates that mirror the structure and content of your most successful or frequently used matters, saving you the time and effort of setting up new matters from scratch.

    Secondly, we’re excited to introduce the ‘Clone Matter’ feature. This feature is designed for those times when you want to quickly set up a new matter that’s similar to a previous one. With just a few clicks, you can choose to clone Tasks, Pins, Milestones, Details, or all of the above from a previous matter. This not only saves you time but also ensures consistency across your matters.

    These new features are part of our ongoing commitment to making Lupl the most user-friendly and efficient legal project management software for legal professionals and lawyers. We’re confident that they will make your work even more efficient and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    UI/UX Improvements

    For our iOS users, we’ve redesigned the Task Details interface, implementing a number of improvements to make it more intuitive and user-friendly. This redesign aims to make task management even more efficient, allowing you to focus on the work that matters most.

    For our Android users, we’ve made significant enhancements to our Direct Message (DM) chat feature. We’ve introduced push notifications, ensuring you never miss an important message. We’ve also added the ability to invite new users to start a conversation, even if they’re outside of Lupl, expanding your communication possibilities. Additionally, we’ve added the ability to hide chats from the chat view, giving you more control over your chat interface.

    In terms of general UI/UX improvements, we’ve made a change to the channel activity view. When a user deletes a document, the document title will no longer appear in the channel activity. This is part of our ongoing efforts to make Lupl as user-friendly and efficient as possible.

    App Performance

    At Lupl, we place a high emphasis on maintaining optimal app performance. To this end, we’ve recently implemented a series of under-the-hood modifications designed to alleviate performance issues associated with handling extremely large matters and a high volume of users. These changes are specifically engineered to minimize the impact on app performance in such scenarios, ensuring a smooth and efficient user experience regardless of the size of the matter or the number of users involved.

    Security & Compliance

    This remains a top priority for Lupl. In Q2, we continued our security audits for ISO/IEC 27001, allowing firms to take advantage of the extra layer of security across managed iOS devices. It’s part of our ongoing commitment to provide a secure platform where legal professionals can manage their matters with complete peace of mind. Stay tuned for updates on our progress towards this significant milestone in our journey.

    Research and Upcoming Features

    In the upcoming weeks, we are eager to unveil a host of exciting new features as part of our comprehensive roadmap. Our commitment is to enrich the LPM experience, for lawyers, legal project managers, and legal professionals. These enhancements are designed to help you get to “closed”, “won”, or “done” faster, thereby facilitating superior outcomes for you and your team.

    We’d love to hear your thoughts on these new features and improvements, or if you have a feature request or feedback, please don’t hesitate to share with us. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to enhance and expand Lupl’s capabilities.
