    Did You Know?

    CMPOnline has all kinds of hidden secrets!

    Any CMPOnline heading that is colored blue has the ability to be drilled down further so you can gather more information about that field. For example: On the Main Case File screen, you can hover over the “Client” heading to see a popup that provides basic details. If you click this blue heading, you will then be provided with more in depth information and be able to click on the “Details” button to delve further into the client settings. There are many headings providing this similar feature within CMPOnline. Continue to venture around and please reach out with any questions!

    Stay tuned for future tips about CMPOnline!
