FYI is entirely cloud-based. We have an Office App, which delivers deep integration with Microsoft Office. This app deployed and maintained via Office.com, and doesn’t require any desktop installation. Refer to Adding the FYI Apps for Office and Outlook.
The FYI Platform
The FYI platform is built around nine core modules, each of which are continually enhanced and improved:
Automatically capture and file client emails in Outlook, access email templates, assign tasks and more, without leaving the email you are working on.
For more information, refer to the section Emails.
Auto-Create and Auto-File documents, assign tasks and more, without leaving the document you are working on in Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
Use practice stationery and templates with merge fields to improve quality and productivity.
For more information, refer to the section Documents.
Search and Retrieval
FYI blends emails, documents and client interactions in a single client-centric database in the cloud, so you can access information in seconds.
File and retrieve jobs at a job level, and use views, sorting and filters to locate information, plus the full power of metadata and tags rather than folders.
For more information, refer to the section Search and Retrieval.
Record every client interaction, with a dedicated workspace for each client, instant access to recent interactions and the ability to record phone calls, file notes and meetings.
For more information, refer to the section Clients.
Add tasks to an email, document, phone call or meeting. Assign tasks to a team member and monitor progress.
For more information, refer to the section Tasks.
Track WIP using the Job Board, and add commentary to share with your team. Maintain XPM jobs by recording time from within FYI, synced back to XPM. Add Time against Jobs and XPM Tasks.

Assign authority to review and approve documents, auto-update the workflow status of documents and save time by applying digital signatures.
