A Matter in Smokeball (or Digital File) is a one place to enter information and reference anything in regards to a specific matter. Matters include everything that typically would have been in a paper file, but gives you a digital format that you or anyone in your firm can access from anywhere at anytime.

The Matter will be your home to create documents/emails, store important matter information, see upcoming calendar events, and complete important tasks.
