Hyperlink link fields

One of the more useful types of fields in a legal extranet is a field which we call a "hyperlink" field. What exactly is this? It is a field whose primary purpose is to provide a direct link to another website of interest. The use of this field allows us to extend the utility of our legal extranet systems beyond the rich set of capabilities we provide and into the entire universe of useful content of interest related to a particular litigation which resides on the internet.

The intelligent use and deployment of these "hyperlink" fields allows our law firm extranet systems to be hybrid systems -- partly comprised of our case management/task tracking/calendar/document functional areas -- and partly comprised of a set of related publicly available internet-based content.
