Develop Matter Lifecycle w/workflows, add Matter Status and Matter Health indicator.
Design a Matter Lifecycle with associated systematic workflows (e.g. when 'closed' declare records in-place or send to a records repository (e.g. SharePoint Records Center), add the ability for a User to select the status of a matter (e.g. in-progress, cancelled, on-hold, complete, archived) as well as provide a health indicator (red, green, yellow) as the Matter moves through its lifecycle.
