Matter Permissions and Groups

You can assign a Matter to a certain individual, everyone in your firm, or a specific Group. If you are not included in the permission group, you will not be able to find this Matter.

Administrators can assign permissions to a matter, can create and edit groups.
Non-Administrators can assign permissions to a matter.

To assign the matter permission, go to your matter and click the "Edit" button.

Now, scroll down the Matter Edit form to the "Matter Permissions" section and select the permission option that you require. By default, all Matters are set to be viewable by all users on the account. 

Please note: In order to view a matter, or bill it, you must be part of the permission group with access to that matter.


Note that only Administrators can set user groups.

Name the Group and click "Save".
