Outlook Email Integration

Drag and Drop appointments, tasks and messages from Outlook® to PerfectLaw® matter codes

Outlook Email Drag and Drop Integration is one of PerfectLaw’s ® most popular and beneficial functions. Once users have reviewed their emails or attachments they can simply drag them from Outlook to a PerfectLaw® matter or folder to import them. If the same email is dragged to the same matter by a second user; PerfectLaw® alerts them it’s already there. Likewise users can select one or more documents from PerfectLaw® and drag them into Outlook emails as attachments. PerfectLaw’s® tight integration with Outlook makes All-in-One® matter files possible by combining emails, attachments with the other docs in your database. Other functions and benefits of Outlook email integration and the All-in-One® matter file are shown below.
