Best Timetracking For Lawyers?

It’s a new year and time for a fresh start. Rather than setting up a new system, why not try some of these tried-and-true tools? Online calendars are great ways to keep track of appointments and schedule meetings with clients. Many scheduling software packages allow you to create recurring events such as monthly or weekly meetings that can be scheduled on your online calendar. If you don’t have an online calendar set up already, the simplest way is to use Google Calendar (http://www.google.com). If you already have an Outlook calendar in place, it will sync over with any personal email addresses so everything will be automatically updated in both places. You can also use ScheduleOnce ( www .scheduleonce .com) which does not require external systems like Exchange Server; instead this product allows for automatic syncing when certain criteria are met such as creating recurring tasks within Microsoft Outlook or when creating an event from within ScheduleOnce itself (see Figure 5–5).
