Using the Account Conversion Tool
The Account Conversion Tool allows you to convert existing account records from TeamConnect Legal Matter Management versions prior to 4.0 to the new account record format in TeamConnect Financial Management.
The Account Conversion Tool is only available to TeamConnect users who are members of a group with the appropriate Tool Rights. This group is likely reserved for TeamConnect administrators.
Additionally, users need rights for each object that the Account Conversion Tool will be used on, rights to view the object, categories, and phases.
Note: You may not need to convert accounts that have a zero balance if you are not using them to budget for a matter.
Important: If you have existing account records that apply to dates prior to 1/1/2005, you will need to modify your Global Start Date before converting the existing accounts. See Budget Settings or contact Mitratech support for more information.
