  • Members: Select the names of team members who will work in that practice area.

  • Document Folders: Specify separate folders to store the documents of each practice area.

  • Estimation Cost: Specify the Estimation Cost of the practice area.

  • Custom Field Groups: Select the custom field groups for the practice area (if any).

If you now create any new matter in the selected practice area, the defaults that you have set above will be added to the new matter screen.
