What can Firm Administrators do?
Firm Administrators have "global rights" of access. That is, a Firm Administrator is able to view all case data for any case attached to a firm’s license as well as to create, edit, and delete cases attached to a firm’s license. If for any reason a mediator is prevented from completing a case to which he or she is assigned, the Firm Administrator can access the case by selecting the Edit button in the Case Summary tab on a Case Dashboard and making the adjustments in the Case Users box.
Firm Administrators can also add additional people to a firm or remove existing users, and set the role of any new or existing user.
As a Firm Administrator, you can edit the Firm's address and contact information for a firm by going to My Firm > Manage Firm, selecting Display/Edit for the appropriate firm, making the necessary edits, and clicking on the Update Firm button at the bottom of the screen:
