In a previous post Mr. Earle said this:

bvearle:
The current release of HotDocs (2006) allows you to configure the Database Connection to "write back" to a database.  You cannot use the Database Connection to add new records to a database, however, nor will it write to database field that was empty when the HotDocs assembly session started. . . . 

Can the >2008< version of HotDocs (Pro or Standard) do either of these things when an HD dialog is matched with a Time Matters Contact or Matter record as an answer source?

Thanks!

Is the same true when an HD dialog is matched with a Time Matters Contact or Matter record as an answer source?  (I would assume so, but I'm hesitant to take things for granted!)

Thanks again!

I don't know, but I seriously doubt HotDocs could add a record.  You could do a quick test to see if it fills a previously empty field.
