The Pending Date is typically used by firms if they create a Matter however, they have not started on the case. A firm would use Pending for the below scenarios:
- As a status prior to Opening: this can help those Clio users that may have prospective matters that have not been fully realized. If your firm is considering a case, or is actively working to develop a Client, your firm may want to start a Matter to record within Clio any work made towards closing this Client.
- As a status between Open and Closed: When preparing to Close a Matter, your firm can use the Pending status as an in-between classification.
