The pace, volume, and nuance of court orders and opinions is staggering.
It may be tempting to believe you and your team are up-to-date on the latest judicial updates in your practice area. You might even feel this way right now – that you and your team’s knowledge is perfectly up-to-date in your area of expertise, and that, as such, you’re providing your clients the best support.
But the legal and regulatory landscape is regularly uprooted by newly published updates. And, when it is, you and your team need to incorporate these latest changes in your research and expertise.
Because it’s simple: providing your clients and team the best support requires having the best, latest information at your disposal.
Staying on top of targeted judicial updates also helps your firm strategically target new potential clients, and tailor your communication channels to nurture ongoing client relationships.
To stay up to date, you probably talk to your colleagues for the latest information. Maybe you’ve joined a professional association that hosts seminars and educational events. Maybe it’s the stack of unopened newsletter messages in your inbox, with subject lines irrelevant to your research.
But, in reality, continuous knowledge requires more than just working your network, paying a legal information broker, or sifting through an expensive legal database periodically. You often need to track changes to specific, often nuanced legal information, and you need to do so both efficiently and reliably.
But is bookmarking various web pages of interest, and then finding time to manually recheck each of them for updates, the best way to do so?
That’s where Visualping comes in.
Visualping is a thrifty and clever solution for helping legal professionals and knowledge managers stay on top of the latest legal updates they need – and from any particular web source they want to monitor.
Such as the newest opinions and orders from The Federal Circuit, or any web source that best suits your research needs.
You don’t have to rely on bookmarked tabs, and manually recheck web pages yourself. You don’t need to tediously seek out information through the grapevine, or consult an expensive legal database with limited reach.
Simply choose which web pages you want to track, and Visualping will automatically check the information for changes for you. When there’s an update, Visualping sends you a real-time email alert, with the changes highlighted for you to see.
By allowing you to get right to the source and monitor any primary information sources you choose, Visualping makes it easier for you to stay up-to-date on the valuable judicial and legal information you need.
With a little know-how, you can use the power of the vast internet – paired with an easy AI tool – to more easily stay on top of it.
Sign up with Visualping to monitor any judicial government web page, and get notified of the updates you don't want to miss.
Most of the updates legal professionals and knowledge managers need to track can be found on the internet, buried in the deep pages of websites belonging to regulatory agencies, government agencies, courts, and every other sort of authority.
But, while the internet is rich with information, it’s tricky to keep up with.
“Website change monitoring” describes a category of tools that scan the web for changes, and notify you when there’s a change. When this happens, you get an email alert that displays the change to you.
Available online, Visualping is particularly useful for legal and regulation monitoring because you can:
Only get alerts on exactly what you care about, by tracking any public or private page on the internet, including PDFs. You can also specify which parts of the page to monitor, and how often you want them checked.
Easily understand the legislative change, thanks to email alerts that highlight the changes for you.
As an added bonus, Visualping offers a keyword alert feature, so you can only get alerted when certain words or phrases are added or removed. This helps ensure that you get notifications for exactly what you care about.
Step 1. Copy the page URL you want to track and paste it into the search bar on Visualping’s homepage.
Step 2. Select the part of the page you want to monitor.
Step 3. Choose how often you want Visualping to check the page for changes.
Step 4. Enter the email address you want to use to receive updates to court orders and opinions.
Step 5. Check your email to complete the Visualping signup process.
To begin, simply go to Visualping’s homepage, and copy and paste the URL from the web source you want into the search engine.
Next, select the specific area of the page that’ll update with the latest orders and opinions you care about. Or, you can just monitor the whole page for changes – it’s up to you.
To set how often Visualping checks the page, select your frequency of checks. Depending on the urgency of your subject matter, Visualping can check a page anywhere from every 5 minutes, to once a month.
Visualping needs an email address to send alerts to.
You can easily change it later from your Visualping account page, but you need to enter an email address at this point in the sign up process, in order to activate your account.
You’re almost done!
Once you’ve entered your email, you’ll get a message in your inbox from Visualping asking you to set your password.
This part is critical to the sign up process – without doing this, your account won’t be activated, and you won’t get any legislative change alerts!
After you’ve completed these steps, you can easily view all of your tracked pages in a single place, in your user dashboard.
Every regulatory environment is continuously evolving. Especially in today’s most highly-regulated industries, staying one step ahead of requirements is one the legal profession’s toughest hurdles.
With the help of Visualping, keeping pace with constant legal and regulatory change is more manageable than it seems – regardless of how specific or niche your practice area.
