Commonly Automated Documents

Welcome to Smokeball! As part of your subscription to Smokeball, our Legal Configuration team will automate ten proprietary templates for your firm. Document automation is a powerful feature that will save your firm time and prevent common drafting mistakes.

  • We want your firm to see an immediate return on investment when creating documents in your cases.
  • When selecting the templates for Smokeball to automate, we recommend picking the documents and letters your firm generates multiple times a week, and which are part of a repetitive process.
  • Starting off with automating simpler documents gives your firm the opportunity to become familiar with automation, allows your firm to give feedback to our Legal Configuration team for future automated templates, and will help you judge whether more advanced automation for longer documents is something your firm would use.
  • Here is a list of high-impact templates that firms commonly send to Smokeball.
    • Use this list as a guide when picking out your documents that you want us to automate for you.
    • You may submit documents that do not appear in the list, but keep in mind that you will want to pick simple and repetitive documents first when starting out with document automation.
