Cosmolex Native Document Storage for Financial Documents

How to create and set-up storage for financial documents

Cosmolex has released their Native Document Storage. You can now add documents without utilizing Box or Dropbox applications. While this was intended for client files, it is also a great way to keep your financial documents directly on Cosmolex, eliminating the need for multiple document storage systems.

In order to store the financial documents in Cosomolex, you must first enable Native Document Storage, create a new client and a related matter in which to store the documents. If access to the financial documents should be limited, you can restrict access based on a unique matter owner.

Note: In the examples below, we will create a new client (Admistrative), with a related matter (Financial). We will also create a unique matter owner (Administrator) for this matter.
