In ACORDS, how do I enter more than one opinion on a case?
- On the Manage Events screen, select the Opinion Event and click Edit Event.
- Change the Action code from Filed to Withdrawn.
Result: The Decided status will be removed and the case will return to the previous case status. The original opinion information will be kept for historical purposes.
- On the Manage Events screen, add a new event (CLASS = Opinion, TYPE = Opinion) and enter the entire new opinion event.
Result: Both opinions will display on the Manage Events screen: one with the Action code Withdrawn and one with the Action code Filed.
