JustFOIA has released new features!

No action is required on your part to start using these new features. We posted a video on the Training Center for JustFOIA to show some of the new enhancements.

Printer-Friendly Requests

In a world of electronic records and requests, we understand the need to print still. JustFOIA now provides a printer-friendly version of a request.

User-Based Hourly Rates

The hourly cost of a request can vary based on the person completing the work. The new job title hourly rate feature allows rates to be associated with a job, in which the user’s job title is assigned. By utilizing this feature, the hourly cost will automatically generate based on the user.
