The annual Technology Initiative Grants (TIG) Conference is the only national event focused exclusively on the use of technology in the legal aid community. The conference provides a unique opportunity to learn about effective uses of technology to support legal aid services, network with a national community of colleagues, and cultivate project ideas that could lead to successful TIG applications.

LSC held the 2016 TIG Conference mid-January in San Antonio, TX. We captured several sessions on video.

TIG 2016: One SharePoint Journey, to Infinity and Beyond!

SharePoint 2013 is a great information management tool but implementing it can appear daunting. This session covered how LAF in Chicago began their SharePoint 2013 journey and, during the course of 21 months, designed and implemented their SharePoint 2013 system – appropriately named “LAFPoint.” The presenters describe the process of designing LAFPoint to work with LAF’s culture and staff, the hardware and software challenges they confronted along the way, and the ongoing need for good public relations and training.

LAFPoint’s developer has shared the code for a portal dashboard application for SharePoint built using AngularJS and Bootstrap: github.com/nuveminc/legalportal

Presenters: Vivian Hessel, Director of Technology for Advocates, LAF; Eric Fong, IT Supervisor, LAF; Mark Pace, SharePoint Consultant, Nuvem, Inc.
