Account Administrators can:

  • Reassign all upcoming calendar events to a different firm user.


What work cannot be reassigned?

  • Tasks not associated with a Matter
  • Events not associated with a Matter
  • Events that are saved on another Calendar but the specific User is just an attendee
  • Matters with permissions set to ‘Me’ (i.e only one firm user). These are considered private and work will not be reassigned. Learn more about Matter permissions and groups.

How will a firm member know when work has been reassigned to them?

  • Firm members will have a flash, in-app notification and email informing them that new work has been assigned to them.
  • A detailed report is available for download of all reassigned work.

Can I reassign Matters set to private?

No. Matter permissions set to ‘Me’ (ie. only one firm user) are considered Private. In order to protect privacy levels within a firm, you will not have the ability to reassign any work associated with Private Matters.
