  1. Has anyone been able to determine the pricing of Azure? Is it stable at $130 or is it increasing immensly?

    We are concerned with how much Azure subscription charges can increase with usage.....

          • Allow Drag and Drop of Multiple Emails and/or Documents into Matter Center

            In the Outlook add-in, Users want the ability to drag and drop multiple documents and/or emails into a matter at the same time. For example, I have four documents attached in an email that all need to be filed in the same folder. I want to be able to select all four and drag and drop them at the same time.

              • Provide ability to search for a matter and then perform 'File: Save As' to a Matter library from Office Applications

                Saving a document into Matter Center from within an Office application is confusing. Maybe add a save button in the MC Office add-in pane or add MC features to the Office backstage. Finding a new matter to save the document in was very cumbersome. While you can browse to get where you need, this is very inefficient for large firms that have thousands of clients, even more matters, and millions of documents. There needs to be a way to search and find a matter when saving a file to Matter Center. Users will not find the current implementation of copy/pasting…

                  • After initial creation, provide the ability to edit Matter and Client metadata

                    Manage Matters and Clients. Provide ability for a user to edit metadata properties associated with a Matter (Client Name, Matter Name, Matter ID, Matter Description, Practice Group, Area of Law, Sub Area of Law, Matter Type, Conflict Check data, etc.), as well as Client metadata (e.g., Client Name, Client ID). Insure referential integrity is maintained for all entities in Matter Center (e.g., if Matter Name is updated, insure that Matter Name property for all existing documents associated with this Matter are updated as necessary, and that all new documents uploaded are appropriately tagged with new Matter Name; if Client Name…

                      • Provide user interface to allow IT/User to create new Clients in Matter Center

                        Provide a user interface and process to allow a IT/User with the appropriate permissions to create a new Client in Matter Center. Currently this process involves manually creating a new Site Collection, and taking a series of other manual and partially automated steps that would require a system administrator-type person to complete.
