Alarms and Deadlines

Ways to get help while you work:

  • Handy Tool Tips
    for each field on every screen. When you hover in a particular field, Geni gives you hints about the information that should appear in the field; in addition, if more than one answer is available, Geni displays all of the possible entries for quick reference and selection.
  • Quick-Pick Lists
    are generated from integrated data contained in the setup, case management and accounting features of the program to make data selection quicker and learning how to use Geni faster.
  • Help Screens
    are available by pressing the Help button on the Taskbar at each level of the program or Ctrl+H on pop-up screens so each user can “learn as you go.”

Case Alarms are automatically generated by the Geni Law program and are arranged by Division. Alarms are loaded first and can appear on your screen before proceeding to the program. Case alarms are vital to alert of looming Court appointments (“CRT”) entered in Calendar or CaseWork Manager and the statute of limitations (“SOL”) dates manually entered in case files in CaseWork Manager.


Alarms appear on-screen and can be printed by pressing the Print button at the bottom of the alarm screen.

Alarms can also be set to print automatically at the beginning of each day if preferred (this is done in SETUP > DEFAULTS > USER PREFS > ON or OFF; current setting is OFF.

You or your legal assistant will enter a “Z” in the DO CODE column (the very last column) for each line item shown in ALARMS to indicate that the item is completed, at which time the program also prompts to confirm billing for the item.
