4) Now each user within your firm will need to have the correct time keeper ID code associated with their account. This is accomplished by clicking ‘Manage Users’ located under Users, clicking on the user’s name and entering the time keeper ID code into the user title field. (The time keeper codes that can be used are: PT – partner, AS – associate, OC – of counsel, LA – legal assistant, PL – paralegal and OT – other.)
