Template Packages –  How to Create ‘em and Generate ‘em

For many years, TrialWorks users have been able to select multiple documents simultaneously from a document-generating Tab to create a single, multi-layered document.  For example, from the Pleading Tab you could select Summons, Complaint and Certificate of Service templates all at once, and then create a single “package” document.  TrialWorks has recently improved on this feature, enabling users to pre-design “Template Packages” and saving the final product to a specific Tab as individual documents.

The combinations are endless!  New Client Packages, Deposition Packages, Settlement Packages … if you can identify and order the templates, you can combine them and create a package.  Let’s get started!
