The following issues have been addressed in I-Got-Notices v126.96.36.199 released on January 20, 2015
Group Sequenced Events into a category
Sequenced Events are a set of calendar items you can have I-Got-Notices add automatically in relation to another event. We’ve made them even better by adding an option to group several sequenced events into one category (e.g., Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 12, Chapter 13). Not using Sequenced Events in I-Got-Notices? Learn how to set up 341 Meeting reminders using Sequenced Events in I-Got-Notices. To setup categories for Sequenced Events in I-Got-Notices 5, go to Settings → Program Options → Calendar → Sequenced Events. Select an event and then click on the Edit button. In the box next to Category, enter your user-defined category name. That way all the Sequenced Events you normally use in a Category (say, Chapter 13) will be handy for selection.
Group mail by column headers
The Group By button feature in I-Got-Notices 4 is now available in version 5. The Group By button allows users to group items by various column groupings (e.g., Jurisdictions and Case Name). To start using this feature click on the Group By button on the Mail tab. Now drag and drop the column header(s) to the Group area you wish to sort by. Additional columns can be added to the group area by clicking on the column list icon. Group By groups the mail in the folder you are in. Don’t forget the Case menu item that aggregates all the messages (across folders) you have received in a case—and also shows you the claims register for the case.
Filter notices with same case number in multiple jurisdictions on the Case Tab
If you receive notices from multiple jurisdictions, you may find that occasionally some cases are assigned the same case number. I-Got-Notices will now automatically add additional jurisdiction tabs if notices have the same case number. Next select the jurisdiction of the notices you wish to view.
Define Special dates on the Case tab
We’ve added a new feature that allows users to define important key (Special) dates for a case, in order to make them visible at a glance on the Case tab. These might be dates
such as the case filing date. To set up this feature you first need to create custom labels under Settings → Program Options → Calendar → Global Options → Labels. Once the labels are created, right-click on the label and select “Add to Special Dates”. You can add up to six (6) Special Dates. Once you have assigned your Special Date Labels, you will need to restart I-Got-Notices. Next, create an event on the calendar using one of the Special Date Labels and the case number for the client and refresh the Tab. Or you can just click on one of the Special Date labels on the Case tab, and add the event from there. The dates will now appear on the Case tab next to the Special Dates labels at the top for each Special event for the client.
Rename documents on the Case Documents tab
Reduce the guess work on which document you’re opening in I-Got-Notices by renaming the documents. To rename documents, go to Case → Case Documents, and select the document you wish to rename. Next click on the Rename Doc button and type in the new name for the document.
Easily see status of events on the List of Events tab
On the Calendar → Event Lists → List of Events tab we’ve added a column with colored bullet buttons to help users see the status of events at a glance.
- Green = Active
- White = Completed
- Black = Deferred
Event date keyboard shortcuts
We’ve added some event date field keyboard shortcuts to help users save time. Add any of the shortcuts listed below to the start or end date (ex.: 1/1/2015 +)
The Event window shortcuts are:
- + : Add one day
- - : Subtract one day
- t : Today
- m : Beginning of next month
- h : End of the month
- * : Ahead one week
