If a staff member leaves your company and/or no longer needs to access the application, you can use the following procedure to change their status to inactive, which removes their staff ID from all staff assignment drop-down lists in the application. Client staff who have created records cannot be deleted.

Note: Staff members whose status is changed to Inactive, and who previously had access to the Workpapers service, are no longer included in the number of seats (4 seats per bundle) that are available for the service.
