This screen is primarily used to enable the user to select a matter to work on. The screen holds a list of matters for the author in one of the following options:

  1. My and Recently Worked on Matters
    Displays all current matters of which the logged on author is in charge of the matter. It also contains all matters he/she has recently worked on. A recently worked on matter is a matter, which has been worked on (had time recorded or file notes saved) within the last 30 calendar days (does not have to be a matter on which the logged on author is in charge);
    OR
  2. Recently Worked on Matters
    Displays all matters worked on by the logged on author within the last 30 calendar days.

 As to whether the Recent Matters screen shows 1 or 2 is dependent upon whether the Menubar > Parameters > Set Parameters > Matter and Client > Lawyers Workbench Options > Operations tab "Only Display Recent Matters" option is ticked or not.

So either:

     a. Matters in the Lawyers Recent Matters list were assigned to another Lawyer thus removing them from the My and Recently Worked on Matters list; and/or
     b. No time or file note had been saved on the matters that disappeared by that Lawyer in the last 30 days.

NOTE: rolling of the end of month doesn't affect the recent matters list
