Password reset

Note, that the link does expire after 30 minutes. If you click the link after it expires, you will need to restart the process again.

Create and edit a case

Click the plus sign in the upper right hand corner on the cases screen to add a case. Enter the case number, name, details, type, peremptory challenges, number of juror seats and seating arrangement.

To edit a case, click on the little pencil button once you have gone into a case. You can edit the case number, name, details, type, peremptory challenges, number of juror seats and seating arrangement. Editing the case details will not delete any juror information, even if reducing the size of the jury box.

Add a new juror

Jurors can be added directly to the jury box or to the jury pool. Add jurors to the jury box by clicking an empty seat juror seat. Add jurors to the jury pool by clicking the plus button in the upper right corner of the jury pool section, below the dismissed area.

Edit a juror

Jurors in the jury box, dismissed area, and jury pool can be edited. To edit, just click on the juror card in the jury box or dismissed area, or the juror row in the jury pool.

Dismiss a juror

Dismiss jurors from the jury box by dragging the juror card down to the desired category in the dismissed area below the jury box. To dismiss a juror from the jury pool, click the x button on the juror row and select the reason for the dismissal.

Move a juror out of the jury pool

Jurors can be promoted to the jury box from the jury pool by clicking the checkbox button on the juror row in the pool. When promoted, they will take the next available seat in the jury box. To dismiss a juror from the jury pool, click the x button on the juror row and select the reason for the dismissal. To delete a juror in the jury pool permanently, click the trash can button on the juror row.

Add a note to multiple jurors at once

Add a note to more than one juror at once by clicking the multi-box button at the top of the screen. Click on the jurors you want to add the note to and confirm your selection. Add the note in the Comments section and click save. The note will be appended to the existing notes in the juror cards of the selected jurors.

Demographics tracking

Besides making notes for each juror on the juror card, you can also add demographics with selectable dropdowns. To add a demographic, create or edit a case and type a new demographic under the Demographics Tracking Categories field. Once added, those demographics categories will be added to the edit juror screen above the comments section. If you choose to show demographics on juror cards, your selections will be shown at the top of the juror cards, above the comments.

When inputting the value for a given demographic in the edit juror screen, you can either select from options previously input or type a new selection. The options chosen will be used for demographics analytics.

Demographics analytics

If you chose at least one demographic to track, you can view demographics analytics. Access this through the small circle icon that looks like two people, in the upper left corner of the Jurybox web app, or the graphs icon in the upper right corner of Jurybox iPad app.

Demographics analytics has one graph for each demographic category, which depicts the juror population percentage breakdown vs the breakdown of the defense and prosecution peremptory strikes. For example, if you chose race for a demographic to track, the graph would depict what percentage of the jury is Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, etc. It would also depict what percent of the defense and prosecution dismissals were Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, etc. That way, at a glance, you can easily spot any bias, whether in yourself or the other party, and take action as necessary.

By default, the graphs only pull data from the jury box and dismissed area, but you can have it include jurors in the jury pool by selecting the option to include the jury pool.

Print or email a copy of juror notes

Jurybox allows you to download a printer friendly PDF of juror notes for all jurors. On the web app, go into the case you would like to print and click the icon of a cloud with a down arrow in the upper left hand corner next to the pencil button. This will download a printer friendly PDF of the juror notes for the case. Note, this feature is only available on the web app (not for iPad) and does require an internet connection.

Collaborate with Jurybox

Jurybox allows for real time collaboration with members of your office, subscribed to Jurybox, which are assigned to the same group. In order to receive real time updates, collaborating users must be added to your office subscription and they must be assigned to the same group as you. All users in the same group will see any new cases that any other user in that group creates. They will also be able to edit any case in their group, including cases created by other members of the group. If more than one user is in the same case at the same time, they will see real time updates from other users.

Note that users cannot delete cases that were not created by them.

Add users to your organization

You can add additional users to your organization under the account page. To get there, click the ACCOUNT button in the upper right hand corner of the Jurybox web app.

You can add as many users as you like during your free 30 trial. After the trial is over, you will need to pay the subscription fee for each user in your organization.

If you have any available accounts that have already been paid for, you can click the plus sign on the upper right corner of the table to add a user. Just input their name, email, group and user role. Once you add them, they will receive an email with an invite link to join your organization. They just need to click the link and create a password to access their account.

If there are no accounts available, you will either need to pay for an additional account, or delete an existing user in your organization. To pay for an additional account, click the edit button next to subscription info. Add one or more accounts to the current cycle and click update. You will be shown the prorated amount for the additional users added. Click YES to proceed with the purchase.

Use Jurybox offline

Even though Jurybox is a Cloud based app, it will still continue to work even when you temporarily loose internet access. The only difference is that you will not see contributions from others while you are offline. Everything else will work the same as in online mode. Once you reestablish your connection, Jurybox will sync up with the Cloud. Note that when you are offline, a red bar with the words "Offline" will show at the top of the screen.
