Dive into many possibilities as you select multiple columns, add filters, manipulate grouping, fine-tune sorting, and add aggregations. Let’s dig deep into the details of each of these possibilities:

1. Analytical Precision with Chosen Report Types

You can name and choose the type of report you want to generate, such as leads, invoices, time entries, events, contacts, payments reports, etc. 

This ensures that the report aligns with your specific analytical needs, allowing for a more focused and relevant legal data analysis.

2. Strategic Data Selection: 

Select columns with surgical precision and filter out irrelevant information. You can also use condition operators to zoom in on the necessary data points.

This not only streamlines the reporting process but also ensures that reports are concise and relevant and provide actionable insights to your law firm. 

3. Fine-Tune for Clarity: 

Organize and present your data in a way that makes sense to you. Group, sub-group, sort, and aggregate data for a clear and concise overview of the legal landscape. 

This cosmetic fine-tuning helps in presenting information logically and easy interpretation of insights for more informed decisions.

4. In-Depth Insight with Specific Date Range

Including a date range adds a temporal context to the reports. You can analyze cases over specific periods, be it a month, quarter, or year. This feature enables you to identify trends, track changes over time, and make informed decisions based on a historical perspective

It enhances the depth of analysis and provides a more comprehensive understanding of the legal data dynamics of your law firm, making way for unmatched growth and profitability over time.

Pro Tip: You can choose to expand or collapse your sub-group in a report, depending on the level of detail you need. When a report is grouped, select Expand All to view the details inside that group and Collapse All to view only the grouped line item.

Expanding or collapsing sub-groups in a report adds an extra layer of efficiency. You can view detailed information within a group or opt for a more high-level overview by collapsing sub-groups. This flexibility in data navigation ensures that you can quickly access the level of detail they need, enhancing the usability of the reports.

Your growing legal business needs to stay out of any guesswork; that’s where Lawcus plays its role. Get clear insights on your potential clients and their referral sources to make the best out of your practice.
