Get the insights you need from your data
Nominated by Roxanna Nematollahi, Database Analyst/Support Staff at Animal Legal Defense Fund, our latest Feature Spotlight helps you to put your data to work for better matter, client and practice insights.
Custom Data in Actionstep means the different types of data that your firm can use to create standard fields on your matter or participant types.
We asked Roxanna 3 questions and here are her responses. We hope you check them out and love the Custom Data feature as much as Roxanna does!
Why I love it
As a data person, I like being able to create, filter, and sort through Custom Data in Actionstep.
What it does
It helps keep track of our Litigation cases and lets us filter through roughly 80 practice areas (such as Business, Commerce, Trademark..). We collect data on the cases ALDF are working on and can see what stage they are at. We work nationally, so we can keep track based on several criteria, such as which state, status, practice area they relate to. Custom Data also helps with our end of year reporting.
How it makes a difference to law firms
Being a non-profit, Custom Data allows us to collect data based off the various cases we are working on and see what stage they are in. We can easily generate our regular reports from Custom Data with heads up rules. As a result, it enables management to communicate easier with the media or potential donors.
Nominate a Feature Spotlight
We are always delighted and occasionally surprised by what our customers really love the most about our system. Different firms use Actionstep in different ways. Identifying Features to spotlight is one of the ways we can share knowledge and business insights with our community of lawyers across the globe.
If you would like to nominate a Feature Spotlight, please email our Communications Team with your idea. We have spot prizes for the most impactful or unusual suggestions!
