Custom fields

Custom fields are data markers specific to your matter template.

Information collected throughout a transaction can be saved back to these Custom Fields.

They can then be used in document and email templates to recall matter specific information.

Adding a new custom field

Within the Custom Field tab on a matter template:

  1. Select + Add next to the search field
  2. Group:
    1. Create a new data group by typing in the desired name
    2. Select from an existing group within the text field
      Groups help to keep your data organised on a matter.
  3. Type: Select the type of data that will be collected i.e. currency
  4. Name: Provide a name for the Custom Field i.e. Property Price
  5. Data Marker: Create a Data Marker for the Custom Field i.e. property.price
  6. Example: Provide an example response you'd expect from the Custom Field i.e. £500,000
  7. Ask for this when Matter is opened?: The custom field will be presented on the matter opening page
  8. Require the matter opener to input this data?: The custom field will be compulsory when a matter is opened
    Options 7 & 8 only apply if a matter is opened manually, not via a Quote Calculator.
  9. Notes: Provide any information that might help users understand what the field is used for
  10. Pin this field to the top of a matter: The custom field will be pinned to the top left hand side of the matter
  11. Save


  • Import a .csv file of custom fields which should be associated with a matter
  • Export a list of custom fields associated with the matter
