FED – Family template changes

Changes have been made to the template that controls the majority of the Family Law documents.

These enhancements/changes include -

  1. When multiple parties are entered on 1 Card, the message that displayed was causing clients problems.  This has been resolved with a prompt to advise clients that the parties listed in the dialog need to be entered on separate cards;
  2. When calculating a document that has figures i.e. Financial Statement, a progress bar will now display, ensuring that clients know the process is working;
  3. When closing a document that has a calculation, operators will now be prompted to re-calculate the document – this has been done as a result of clients not always remembering to re-calculate their documents before closing, and in turn their figures were not adding up; and
  4. A problem associated with the Conciliation Conference Particulars (LL-FED-FAM-162) where the calculation was entering the word ‘NIL’ in the column headings has been resolved.
