Adding Vendors, Vendor Offices & Vendor Users to a Matter (Client Article)

Given that you can view a matter, you have the ability to add vendors, vendor offices and even individual vendor users to a matter. 

Access to matters for vendor users is controlled by 2 factors:

  • How you assign the vendor and users to the matter.
  • The access level of individual vendor users.


To assign a vendor & vendor users to a matter:

  1. From the Vendors tab, click Update Vendor on the right side of your screen.
    • Note: You can have more than one vendor on a matter (the vendors will only see their own information).

  2. Select the Vendor from the dropdown list.
  3. Select the Firm Office from the dropdown list.
    • Similarly, if a Firm Office is not on the list, the office will need to be added to your company.

  4. Select the Firm Users from the dropdown list.

    • If you chose Any Firm Office in the step above, then the Only Admins option will be selected by default.
      • Note: Your vendor’s admins can assign their office’s vendor ordinary users within the Brightflag Law Firm Portal.
    • If you choose specific offices you can also select specific users. If you would like to select individual vendor users, this is only necessary if their access level is ordinary.
