Can Two Matter Statuses Be Assigned For a Single Matter?


The Matter Status reflects the different [customizable] stages where are lead may be in your Pipeline. 

For example, you can create specific matter statuses (stage) titled "Intake Form Sent", "Intake Form Received", "Consultation Scheduled", and "Documents Signed". You can also create matter statuses that reflect a less specific workflow: "Intake Forms And Documents Completed" and "Pending Engagement".
