The eDiary/Docket WebTMS allows you to store a variety of critical deadlines, follow up dates and reminders for each record in the system. Personal reminders can be combined with automatically calculated statutory deadlines and date progressions to ensure that your “to-do” list is always up to date. The Diary Wizard provides a variety of standard and custom reports.

You can review and update docketing and reminder dates from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Print reminder lists, diaries and to-do lists and administer individual and firm wide dockets (automatic email notifications).
