The purpose of the CIC Product Announcements forums is to provide LexisNexis Time Matters, Billing Matters, PC Law & HotDocs users information about 3rd party solutions that have been developed by CICs to help them better utilize these applications.
This forum is managed and moderated solely by LexisNexis Practice Management Certified Independent Consultants (CICs) and is for the benefit of licensed LexisNexis® Practice Management customers as well as other CICs. CICs are not employees, agents, representatives, resellers, or contractors for LexisNexis®. CICs are independent professionals whose primary focus is the training and support of customers. LexisNexis® provides the infrastructure to host the forum, but does not participate in the management or moderation of the forum.
There is no cost for using these forums and a support agreement is not required.
Product Announcements - any CIC who has developed a publicly available feature package, training manual or guide, add-on application or utility, or white paper may post an announcement regarding the availability of such an product. Each announcement will provide information about the product, the LNPM application is is designed to supplement, and must contain a link to a web site where more information can be obtained and the item can be purchased. The announcements will be made "sticky" and will reside at the top of the forum.
Information requests - in addition to the announcements, forum participants can post questions about any of the products that are the subject of the announcements. In order to establish a positive, constructive environment in which these questions can be answered, all posts are reviewed by the forum's volunteer CIC moderators before being distributed. Message content will not be edited, augmented, or changed. Messages not in compliance with the objectives of the forum will simply not be posted to the forum by the moderators and individuals who repeatedly attempt to post such messages may have their access to the forum restricted or terminated.
Generally, LexisNexis® will not be participating in the forum and participants should not rely on the forum to communicate with LexisNexis® directly. If you have ideas or feedback for LexisNexis® regarding any of the Practice Management products, please follow the procedures established for submitting ideas or comments to the appropriate business unit.
Messages should include your name, firm name, city and state, which version of the product you are running, basic operating and computer system information, plus your current status regarding working with LexisNexis® Practice Management technical support (remember, call technical support first). Anonymous or alias posts will NOT be accepted.
