How Do I Set up an Authorized User?

An authorized user is a court reporter and member of E-Transcript Signatures who can draw signatures from your account, meaning the person can sign transcripts using signatures that are in your billing account.

Note: After you set up authorized users, you can delete the authorized users, revoke their administrator status, or give administrator status to someone who does not have it.  For instructions, refer to How Do I Maintain Authorized Users?   

Example Scenario

You have recently activated E-Transcript Manager. You have received E-Transcript Reporter Edition licenses and E-Transcript Signatures as part of your subscription. You emailed an E-Transcript Reporter Edition license to a reporter, the reporter enrolled with E-Transcript Signatures, and now you want to allow the reporter to draw signatures from your signature billing account when signing transcripts electronically.      

Listed below are the prerequisites necessary to complete the scenario:
