In Actionstep you can use merge fields to determine what pronoun will be used based on if the participants involved are male, female or a company or if there is one of them or many. The merge filed to enter will be either "Pronoun1", "Pronoun2", "Pronoun3" or "Pronoun4" depending on what type of pronoun you are wanting to use.

You then add in a option to the merge filed to show if it should be in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd person by adding |pn=1st or |pn=2nd or |pn=3rd

Lastly you will add in a pt= option to show which content the pronoun will reference. 

The result should look like the examples below:

 [[Pronoun1|pn=1st|pt=Client]] or [[Pronoun3|pn=2nd|pt=Lawyer]] or [[Pronoun4|pn=3rd|pt=Other_party]]


Actionstep will change the result of the merge field based on if there is one or more parties assigned to that role and based on what the sex of that contact is recorded as.

To help you understand what pronoun to use refer to the listed options below.
