- What is a key date?
A key date in Osprey is used as a calendar reminders for tasks that require a date of completion. Key dates are a great way to manage your to-do list, ensure nothing is missed, and streamline your task management process. Key dates help to track a client’s case progression and inform you of the next step you will need to make. Key dates can be used to inform you of task deadlines, appointments you need to attend, follow-up calls to take, or reminders of next actions. These can either be assigned by the fee earner or support staff as a case progresses, or automatically assigned via a workflow to increase efficiencies.

- What is a legal workflow?
A legal workflow enables a law firm to set up a series of sequential “actions” within a given “task”. For example, a file opening task could include a variety of actions including a questionnaire to input client details followed by a client care letter and a date reminder for the signed client care letter to be returned by the client.
By mapping out action and tasks into a complete legal workflow you can automate those tasks and standardise your processes across your firm to improve efficiencies, client service and productivity. Workflows also reduce errors, remove manual administration and aid compliance.
