Version 6.6 Jan 2020

This release featured a lot of enhancements and technology updates and improvements that you may not notice, but which will improve your Smokeball Experience.

The changes that you will notice are:

Communicate Window Pop Out

You are now able to pop out your Communicate window and use this independently to your main Smokeball app.

Simply click the Pop Out button from the top of the Communicate tab.

Once you have the Communicate window popped out you can continue to work in smokeball without needing to close Communicate

Ability to select which relationship to a party (ie Plaintiff's Medical Provider) to write to when multiple exist

If there is more than one of the role on the matter (ie Plaintiff) we prompt the user to select which Plaintiff to address the letter to. 

We have now extended that to the relationship of a party. (ie Plaintiff's Medical Provider).

When creating a precedent, you can select the party & the related party as an Addressee on a letter (see eg: Plaintiff - Medical Provider).

When you generate this precedent letter, and there are multiple of the addressee party type on the matter, you will now receive a prompt to select the client, and the relevant Medical Provider.

Once you select the party you want the letter addressed to, it will populate with that party's information
