Firm Preferences - The 'Firm' preference tab
The Firm tab in the Program Level preferences is for setting details of your firm and the different offices (if applicable) that you have. This article covers how you set up the Firm tab.
Accessing the Firm tab
The Firm tab is accessed via Tools => Administrative => Preferences.
If you don’t have access to this feature, you may need to log into Migration Manager as user Administrator.
In Preferences, select the Firm Tab
Understanding the Firm tab
1. Firm Details
At the top of the Firm tab, enter your:
- Firm Name
- Firm's Web address
- Firm's main Email Address
2. Setting up Office Details
Each Installation of Migration Manager will need at least 1 Office Setup; however, you can add as many Offices as you like. By doing this, you can limit users to only view matters from their own Office.
3. Setting default Office Assignment
- Choose if you would like the default that all New Clients must be Assigned to an Office.
(this means as you create a new Matter, you must assign an Office to that Matter before it can be created)
- Choose if you would like that New Clients should be Automatically Assigned to the Main Office.
(This means you wont manually need to select an Office each time a Matter is created. The Main Office will be automatically assigned, but this can be changed during or after Matter creation).
Save & Exit
Once all adjustments have been made, click Save & Exit.
