For personal injury law firms and attorneys, if you are unsure if keeping your calendar centralized and organized is important, read this refresher; but here’s a summary of the post: it is very important.
The result of an unorganized and chaotic calendar can include missing deadlines, which can lead to very real and very expensive consequences. Missing deadlines like a skipped court date or failure to appear at a deposition can lead to severe consequences for your PI firm –which is why some firms use more than one calendar app to stay organized. However, more does not equate to better when your information is incomplete. Using 3 different apps with 3 different calendars is like using multiple watches with only 1 clock hand to tell the time—once you’ve figured it out, things have changed.
Solve your problems with an effective event management software for legal firms with Gmail and Microsoft Outlook and syncs your important dates across applications so you are always in the know—no matter what calendar you happen to be viewing. Use CloudLex’s calendaring software to keep everyone in the firm on the same page and never miss a date.

However, you can modify CloudLex events in either app and they will sync. Giving you all the more reason to start using CloudLex’s legal calendar as the dominant one-firm wide calendar.
