New "sign with comments" feature in Alpha Legal

When you ask a client to electronically sign a document within Alpha Legal, what happens if they want to comment on it in some way?

For example, they may be happy to sign but want you to know that they have a question or a concern.

Or perhaps they don't want to sign because they can see a mistake in the document?

We've added a new feature to allow your client to either:

  • sign with a comment (and you will be notified at the comment has been made), or

  • reject the document and NOT sign it - again, with reasons.
Your clients can now "sign with comments" or choose to reject a document

Our beta testers are checking the new feature now and, if all goes well, we'll be publishing the new feature into Alpha Legal later this week. 

New Alpha Legal "how to" video on YouTube - setting permissions for users

Once you have invited users to join your company account, how do control what each user in Alpha Legal can see and do?

This is an important question.  You may want a "shared contact list" which all consultants can see, or you may want to keep each user's client list separate and hidden from each other.  It's your choice!

Similarly, the credit bank can be shared amongst all users, or can be allocated individually.  We've tried to make Alpha Legal work for every size and style of business.

Here is a quick video to show you some of the options.  Hope you'll find your chosen option here!



Alpha Tracker Release 34 is now available

150 new features, performance updates and bug fixes.  That's Release 34 of asbestos software Alpha Tracker!

The official software version number is 4870, which means that there are 150 or so changes since Release 33.  These updates focus mainly on:

  • performance - many screens (especially those relating to asbestos registers) now open more quickly

  • bug fixing - we've been working really hard over Christmas to clear every bug, however small, that we know about

  • security - this version of Alpha Tracker is even more secure than ever and is compatible with the latest Alpha server software.
You can read Kim's release notes here as usual: https://www.start-software.com/tracker/alpha-tracker/release-notes/


Do get in touch and let us know what you'd like to see in Release 35.  We want to hear from you!
