Best Practice: It’s helpful to have a complete list of all User Types developed and approved prior to entering them in the system.

About the User Type field

The User Types field is used to define categories for the types of users that will be interacting with your account’s binders.

Specific User Types vary by binder application and the subscribing organization’s goals. Here is one examples of possible Organization Types based on binder purpose and  subscriber goals:

  • HVAC and Technology Systems Service: Admin, External Contractor, External Vendor, and Internal Staff.
