Issue: When I Update the Matter Description on the Edit Matter Screen, and Click to Update The Matter Number, Both the Number and the Description changes to a Random Number


  • When updating the Matter Description and click "Update Matter Number", the number and description changes.


  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

  • n/a


  • The Matter Numbering scheme was set to "manual" previously, meaning Matter Numbers were entered manually as opposed to being automatically generated.
  • The Matter Number will reflect the next number in the sequence when it was set to manual
  • You can verify this by exporting the Matters as a CSV and checking the "Custom Number" Column


Override the new Matter Number by following the steps here.
