What is the Difference Between << Matter.Relationships.{relationship}.Name >> and << Matter.Relationships.{relationship}.Names >> When Making Document Automation Templates


  • Why is there a .name and .names Merge Field for Related Contacts?


  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:



<< Matter.Relationships.{relationship}.Name >> will only display the first matching result, where << Matter.Relationships.{relationship}.Names >> will show each name that has the same relationship.

For instance, if you have a relationship called "Dependant", and there are multiple Related Contacts that are Dependants:

  • << Matter.Relationships.Dependant.Name >> would show "Caitlin Smith"
  • << Matter.Relationships.Dependant.Names >> would show "Caitlin Smith and Robert Smith"
