    • Beneficiary: the contact will be added as a Beneficiary in Estateably
    • Executor: the contact will be added as an Executor in Estateably

      TIP: If the list of contacts is lengthy and you don’t need to import all contacts into Estateably, use the Search field to easily find the contact(s) you need.

  7. Ensure the Import Intake Information option is selected to import other matter details that have been mapped from Clio to Estateably, and click Continue.

  8. The system then loads the standard case creation modals, starting with Select Jurisdiction. The location details are populated based on the selected Clio case’s location information. Refer to the Add a New File training video for help with completing the case creation process.

  9. Once you confirm the case details and create the new case, you will be able to nsee any Clio details mapped to Estateably fields in the Overview, Intake and Contact sections.
