What happens after a job is booked?

Once a booking request comes in, our team gets working on it right away. There are five statuses in the Steno tab that correspond to the steps in the process.

1. Booking Received

This is where jobs you have recently requested live.

2. Booked

Once the job has been processed and scheduled, the booking request will move to the Booked section and you will receive an email letting you know the job has been scheduled.

3. In Progress

After the job has occurred, it enters Production and is In Progress. Clicking into an In Progress job will allow you to access any job files as soon as they become available.

4. Completed

Once all materials for a job have been turned in, it moves to Completed. Clicking into a Completed job will give you access to all job files.

5. Canceled

Booking Requests that have been canceled will move to Canceled. Clicking into a job will show you the job info and the reason it was moved to this section.

How do I link old Clio Matters with Steno so past jobs show up in my Clio app?

  • If you want cases that were scheduled with Steno before you installed the Steno app to show up in Clio, you will need to send us your matter id.

  • To locate the matter id:

    1. Navigate to the appropriate matter

    2. Copy the number that's located after the forward slash in the URL

    3. Send an email to asking for your case to be linked with Clio.
      1. Please include the matter id and the case name
  • Note: Clio users have the ability to change their matter ID. That said, Steno still only needs the matter ID that's in the URL.

What to do if i'm having issues signing into Steno account

  • If you see the following error message, it's most likely because of a bug on Clio's end. Even though it says "Sign in to Steno", it really should say, "Sign into Steno using your Clio login information".
  • Please try signing in with your Clio login credentials instead of your Steno login credentials to see if that resolves the issue. We are hoping Clio will resolve this bug soon.
