There are 3 types of boards available in App4Legal:

  • Management Dashboard 

    The Dashboard displays some useful statistics to provide you an idea about the activity and performance of the team. Graphics are for instance Matters Per Filing Date, Matters Per Assignee, Matters per Due Dates, My Recent Tasks (that are assigned to the logged in user), Companies edited recently and more. Navigation to years backwards is also possible.

  • Matter Board

  • What it is?

Case Board is a 360-degree Kanban Board in which Matters are put in columns that reflect the Statuses. This Board can perfectly give an idea about the overall activity of the team, the work progress and the situation of the Matters being handled. Color Coding of Matter Priorities is reflected on the Board in order to better assist the user in building schedules and action plans for instance Critical Matters are in red, Medium Priority Matters are in blue and so on.

Columns in the Matter Board can hold one or more Matter Status. Columns on Boards can be named as desired in an easy configurable interface (discussed below). The Matter Board supports up to 6 columns. Matter Boards also have post filters that can be accessed using the filter like shape.

 A Kanban board has a great functionality that allows dragging tickets through columns in order to swiftly update the Status. Matters in a Matter Board are depicted the form of draggable tickets in which the user can drag and drop a matter to the desired column in order to change the Status directly from the Board. Changing the Status of the Matter strictly abides by the Matter Workflow defined in the Admin & Setup. Columns that have 2 or more Statuses are divided so as to give a section to every Status.

In order to apply filters, users can click on the filter icon.



  • Manage Filters:

The Board has quick filters for Received by Team, Assignee, Filter on the Assigned/Unassigned matters , Arrival Date, Filed on Date and Due Date. These Filters can be saved under Filter Names using the Save Filter hyperlink.

Filters can then be managed from the action wheel on the top right of the Board.


  • Archive/Unarchive Cases:

You may wish to Archive Cases in order to decrease the size of entries on grids. Archiving is done through the Case Board.

Archiving is done based on the Default Archive Matter Status that is defaulted in the Setup & Configuration-> Default Values in the Admin & Setup. Multiple Statuses can be set. Once the Archive Matters is clicked the system will prompt a message to make sure that the user wants to Archive Matters having the specified Status(es).

In order to Unarchive Matters, you need to go to the Matters grid-> Advanced Search-> Archived field choose it to be Yes and click Submit.

It will display all the Archived Cases. Then on the grid, mark the Cases that you wish to unarchive, click on the Actions button -> Unarchive.

This action will retrieve all the marked Archived Matter back to the grid and Matter Board.

  • Configure Matter Board

Matter Board can then be configured from the action wheel on the top right of the Board.

The configuration interface is easy and friendly. Board Name is the text field where the Matter Board Name is inserted. The Matter Board supports up to 6 columns. You can add columns from the columns text field using the arrows. Every column in the Board is designated with a name.

Under the column name, the Case Statuses is where the Matter Statuses related to this column are added. Multiple Statuses can be related to one column. Once the user clicks on the blank, the system will display all the unused Case Statuses. Matter Statuses are added from the Matter Workflow in the Admin & Setup.
