How to Bulk Apply a Specific Bill Theme to Matter Bills Using Custom Fields


  • Generate Bills using a specific Bill Theme
  • Can I Assign a Bill Theme to a Matter?
  • Determine if a Matter can have it's own specific Bill Theme


  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

  • There is currently no automatic way to associate a specific Bill Theme to a Matter or Client. However, the section below is a workaround that can guide you through setting up a Matter Custom Field that you can use when bulk generating Bills that should have a specific Bill Theme assigned to them. Essentially you can set it up so that all Matters with the same Custom Field value have the same Bill Theme applied.
