When you create a project, Binder prompts you to synchronize it.

When you create a project, Binder prompts you to synchronize it. Answering “Yes” to the prompt synchronizes the case; that is, it makes all transcripts available offline so that if someone leaves the office he or she can take the case and work on it at the same time people who are at the office work on it. Synchronizing a project causes Binder to copy the database that is on the server to your local hard drive. For example, if you have a laptop computer connected to the network server and you synchronize a project, Binder makes a copy of the transcripts and annotations that are in the case, and stores the copy

on the hard drive of your laptop. You can then take the case offline, for example, on a business trip, to work on it. After you create a project and opt to synchronize it, Binder prompts you to synchronize each time you open and close the project. That is all there is to it. As for legal strategy analysis, there is CaseMap 5, TimeMap 4, and NoteMap (www.casemap.com). These related products help lawyers determine the relationships between facts, witnesses, documents and

issues, produce timelines and show the relationships or links between related information and events. CaseMap 4 maintains all links to TimeMap timeline-graphing software and TextMap transcriptmanagement utility. It also integrates with Adobe Acrobat, Summation, LiveNote, Concordance, Binder,

Opticon, Doculex, Sanction and Trial Director. CaseMap 5 comes with two new spreadsheets: an Authorities spreadsheet and an Authority Extract spreadsheet. The Authorities spreadsheet would be used to manage top-level information about precedents, statutes, and other types of case research. The Authority Extracts spreadsheet is used to capture details about particular sections of interest excerpted

from important case law and statutes. CaseMap also now comes with live spell checking, case exploration tools, and outline enhancements. CaseMap, ( from Browne/Decision Quest www.casesoft.com), makes it easy to organize and explore the facts, the cast of characters, and the issues in any case. For example, you can organize your fact chronology by date, by issue, by source, by whether or not facts are disputed, by your evaluation of which facts are weak or strong, and in dozens of other ways. CaseMap helps organize, evaluate, and explore the facts and issues in a case. CaseMap is a central repository for information about case facts

and issues.
