Adding a partner to a client

In AE/AO you may need to add a new Partner to the database if there has been a change of ownership in the practice.

For instructions on setting up a new partner in the database refer to Partners.

For more information, refer to Adding and maintaining responsibilities.

To set up a Partner, ensure that you have the employee created first in order to assign them as a Partner. Refer to Creating new employees. Once the partner has been created, you are able to then attach the partner on the Responsibility tab of the client.

If there is a previous partner, ensure that you enter an end date for that partner, making sure it doesn't overlap with the start date of the new partner.
