Why Reduce the active matter list by locating matters that are considered 'complete'



After the Provider marks the engagement order as 'Work Complete' and they submit their final claim and invoice, the status of the engagement order on the matter will update to [INVOICE SUBMITTED].

You can find a matter (ready for closure) by following the steps below.




1. Go to the Matter menu > select the Find Matter by Orders option


2. Select the INVOICE SUBMITTED Order Status from the drop-down menu.


3. Click Search to retrieve results or Reset Search to start over the search again.


4. Click the Action button to enter your assigned matter.
