Using Client Status Reasons
If you use client statuses to track your prospects and clients, you've probably discovered there are times when you really want to indicate why a client was put at a certain status. Stratus provides client status reasons for just those times. You can set up a list of reasons for each status and then choose one when you change a client's status. Note: The "Status Reason" field is on the General tab of the client record but only appears when a client status has been chosen that has one or more status reasons set up for it.
