How to Add Teammates to Honey Juror
The Honey Juror Administrator adds the teammates who will be collaborating with you during your jury selection.
You add the teammate’s names in the Plaintiff or Defendant attorney spots depending on whether you represent the Plaintiff or the Defendant in a Civil case.
In a Criminal case, you will add your teammate information in either the Defendant or Government attorney spots.
Enter your teammate’s name(s).
This will allow you to send an invitation to the team member(s).
Enter their email address and wait for them to open the email on their Apple device.
They will need to install the Honey Juror App on their device, and after doing so they can log into the case and start collaborating.
By the way, if you have multiple attorneys who will each perform a portion of the jury selection, know that Honey Juror allows each attorney to set up their own Jury Selection Question Outlines
Font Colors Assigned to Each Teammate in Honey Juror
Honey Juror allows you to assign different colors to each of your teammates.

Open the color selector, make your selection, click off to the side after you have selected the color for each teammate.
Click outside of the color selector to close it.
