1. Grammarly

Grammarly is a software that checks your English writing grammar and tells where it went wrong and how to fix it. It’s important when you are writing long texts or even communicate with clients to quickly check whether you have any spelling errors. You can adjust Grammarly’s feedback according to your genre-specific writing style – informal, formal, and so on.

2. NetDocuments

“When lawyers can spend less time searching and more time doing, when they can stop playing hide-and-seek with their documents, and know that they never have to sacrifice productivity for security – they become free to Work Inspired.”

NetDocuments is a document management software that helps law firms organize their important case files, emails, or any other confidential documents. NetDocuments comes with a rich set of features that enable lawyers to collaborate tightly. For instance, it integrates with Microsoft 365, Microsoft Outlook, and Adobe Acrobat to offer legal professionals a seamless flow of data across these platforms.

Whether you use Trello, Slack, Asana, Todoist, Jira, Notion, or one of the 100+ integrated tools, start tracking time without opening a new tab. Toggl Track timer can now also fill your Pomodoro needs through automated reminders.

If you were looking for Toggl Button, you're in the right place -> we've just rebranded as Toggl Track, but the functionality of the extension remains the same (and we also switched colors a bit as well).

8. Microsoft Teams

Due to the situation in the world right now, more and more teams start communicating online, using various corporate messengers. We have Slack, Mattermost, Fleep but the best one, as for us in Jusnote, is Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams is the way to go for your business if you’re looking for a tool that will keep your workspace well-organized. Each channel contains three default tabs – Posts, Files, and Wiki – and your employees can add more. Just pin the most important and frequently used documents, apps, and web pages for easier and quicker access. Also, whether you need to chat with your colleague or the whole staff across the organization, have a meeting with a client, work on documents in real-time with your peers, plan tasks for you and your team or use third-party apps – you can do it all right in Teams.
