Practice Fusion Administrators can create and delete custom document types to best fit their practice needs. When custom document types get created by mistake, administrators can tailor their document type list by deleting unwanted custom types. This helps users quickly move through their workflow when using and signing documents.
Deleting Custom Document Types
1. Go to the Documents section from either Home page or Tasks page as shown in Graphic 1 below. Click on any document from the Pending tab to open.
