Autofilling and Reverse Autofilling Addresses in Prima.Law

Step-by-Step Guide

  • 1. Entering Basic Information in the Contact Profile
    • Access the Contact Page: Start by navigating to the contact page after beginning a case or during an intake process.
    • General Information: On the contact page, you’ll see tabs for general biographic information, passports, addresses, telephones, employment history, marriage history, etc.
  • 2. Adding Addresses
    • Store Multiple Addresses: Prima.Law allows you to store multiple addresses for a contact, including physical, mailing, and foreign addresses.
      • Click Add: Click the “Add” button to fill in a new address.
      • Define Address Type: Specify whether the address is physical, mailing, or foreign. Note that you can only have one of each type at a time, but a physical address can also be a mailing address.
  • 3. Managing Address History
    • Add Previous Addresses: To add a previous address, enter the dates lived from and until. This helps in maintaining a comprehensive address history.
      • Reverse Chronological Order: Addresses are automatically organized in reverse chronological order for easy reference and use in immigration forms.
  • 4. Using Autofill for Forms
    • Enter Data in the Database: Enter addresses and other relevant data in the contact profile.
    • Smart Interview: Data entered through a smart interview will also populate the contact profile.
    • Open the Case and Form: Navigate to the specific case (e.g., I-130) and open the form you want to autofill.
  • 5. Autofilling the Form
    • Click Autofill: Click the autofill button to populate the form with the data from the contact profile.
    • Edit Form: Open the form to see the populated information. Fields in purplish-pink indicate they will autofill and reverse autofill.
  • 6. Using Reverse Autofill
    • Activate Reverse Autofill: Turn on reverse autofill by clicking the button in the form. This saves any data entered in the form back into the contact profile.
    • Ensure Correct Profile Selection: Make sure the petitioner and beneficiary are correctly selected in the form to ensure data is saved to the correct profile.
  • 7. Checking and Editing Addresses
    • Review Addresses: Check the physical, mailing, and foreign addresses in the form to ensure they are correctly populated.
    • Update Contact Profile: Any changes made in the form will be saved back to the contact profile if reverse autofill is enabled.
