Create a New Prospect Matter

For each new matter you should create a Matter within Migration Manager so that you can record details about the potential/actual client. Prospect Matters are used in Migration Manager to record information about potential clients who have not formally retained the agent’s services yet. Generally a Prospect Matter will be used for recording initial information from an enquirer or performing an initial assessment. A prospect Matter should not be used as an active Client Matter.
