Important: The Advance Options tab allows users to automatically use settings from an existing Matter. Click on the drop down to choose an existing Matter to use as a template for the matter settings. (This feature is used when a firm handles numerous cases that will have the same Marks and Issue codes. These settings will not need to be recreated for each new Matter but will be mirrored from the existing Matter in the New Matter.)
