Once your app is created, and you have created a Mobile Client user within your Clio settings, use Clio as it was designed to be used and include Mobile Client on all messages, events, or tasks that you wish to be visible to the client on the app.
Simply create a secure message within the Client’s Matter and include Mobile Client as a recipient of the message and the message will be visible and active within the client’s app. The client can then reply to the message using the app, and all communications will be preserved and visible within the client’s Clio matter.
- Document Uploads
Any document uploaded to the Client’s Clio folder within their matter will also be viewable and downloadable to the client within their app. They may sign documents using a third party signature app, or simply view and forward the documents as they wish. The attorney simply uses Clio as designed knowing that documents within the client’s Clio folder will be visible to the client on the app.
- Task Creation
Tasks become more applicable when the attorney must simply create a task within the client’s matter, identify the assignee as Mobile Client, and save the task. The task is now visible to the client with the app and may be marked as completed when the client has finished the task. Attorneys may also wish to email the client the task, and receive email notifications when the task is completed using Clio’s reminder and notification options when the task is completed.
- Calendar Entries
Calendar entries are created just like they have been for the attorney within Clio. The attorney must simply include Mobile Client as an attendee on the calendar entry and the calendar will now be visible to the client within their app. The client will also have the option to have calendar entries entered on the app added to their respective calendar on their smart phone so they have the entry in two locations with notifications provided.
Billing entries created for the client and sent to the client using Clio, will now simply be sent to Mobile Client in addition to the client’s email address. The total bill will be visible within the client’s app and their outstanding balance may be paid using the app’s Clio, LawPay, or PayPal integration.
