    Column Notes
    User Type

    The following user types might appear in this column: Firm Administrator, NetClient CS, NetStaff CS, or Employee Self-Service.

    The primary NetFirm CS administrator is the person who was designated as your firm?s NetFirm CS administrator on the purchase agreement.

    Portal ID Primarily for use with Software as a Service (SaaS), Virtual Client Office, or Virtual Office CS, the portal ID can help you to identify which folder belongs to which user. For example, when you choose File > Open in Virtual Office CS Microsoft Word, you will see a list of folders that are named <firmID>.<portalID>. To determine which portal user the folder belongs to, enter the <portalID> in the Find field at the top of this report.
    Account Created This column includes the date on which a NetFirm CS administrator created the portal.
    Account Deleted If a NetFirm CS administrator deleted a portal, this column includes the date on which the portal was deleted.
