New Profile Administration for CourtAlert website
October 7, 2008
Subject: New Profile Administration for CourtAlert website
As the events of yesterday had shown us, sometime
CourtAlert has the opportunity to share a lot of timely information with
the CourtAlert user community. This requires that many at the law firm /
law department will have a CourtAlert user profile. On the other hand we
would not want all these users to add cases to watch lists where
additional cost might incur. For this purpose CourtAlert announces today
a method to create additional user profiles with "inquiry only"
authority. These users can not add cases to watch lists.
The Research and Business Development
tools are made available to such users with no limit of usage and at no
additional charge. There is no limit to the number of users you may have
from your organization.
Another purpose of the new Profile Administration
system is to control multiple watch lists from the same firm. The program
now allows for one administrator to add and remove cases for multiple
users’ watch lists. In regular case watching, CourtAlert does not charge
additional fee if the same case is watched by more than one user in the
If you are the administrator of your firm you will
notice a new option on the web site, "My CourtAlert /Profile
user profiles: In a set of program to manage the profiles of the
firm, each user is assigned one of the following User Type:
– A user that can maintain watch list. The user him/her self can
add, edit or remove cases from watch lists and the administrator can do
so from a centralize program (see below)
“Administrator” - Each firm
was assigned an administrator, typically the first active profile created
for the firm. Please contact Support@CourtAlert.com if
you want to change this designation.
– With the recent and the forthcoming enhancements to the Research
and Business Development areas, we hope
the number of such profile will increase to include every litigation
partner, associate and support staff.
The administrator can deactivate users and the system
prompt for the removal and reassignment of any cases watched by such
lists – A system to add or remove users for a watched case. Typically
a case will first be added to the Administrator’s watch list using
one of the several tools available on the web site and then this program
will be used to add the case to others’ watch lists.
It is very simple to remove a case from several watch
lists. When the watch is no longer needed, the administrator can easily
remove it from all users.
The list of cases being watched can easily be resorted
by clicking on the column head, the default sort order is by main
If you are the administrator for your firm, the new
programs can be called by clicking on “Profile
Administration” link under My CourtAlert option on our website, if
you do not see this link and would like to be the administrator of your
firm, please email Support@CourtAlert.com or click here.
I would like to thank those
clients who have tested the CourtAlert Profile Management system and
provided invaluable feedback on it. We always much appreciate any
thoughts and comments, please do not hesitate to share any suggestion
We are committed to
remain the best!
