Contact Correspondence Address

If you have a Contact Field group called 'Correspondence', you can automatically copy the matter address to the contact card.

This is a great way of updating the client's address post completion.
  1. Within a matter, select 'Edit' on the Stakeholders contact card
  2. Next to the correspondence group, select 'Copy address from matter'
  3. Save

The matters address will be saved as the Stakeholders correspondence address.

This will only be possible if you have the correct data markers in place.
