Practice teams functionality unavailable

IRIS Elements Proposal Manager Limits

Some users are incorrectly being told that they have reached their limit of proposals.

If you have subscribed on a PAYG basis (IRIS Elements Proposal Manager Essentials), please cancel your subscription and resubscribe. This does impact any live or historic proposals, but should fix the issue.

If you have subscribed on an annual plan (IRIS Elements Proposal Manager Professional), please contact to arrange for your license to be reset manually. It is likely we have already attempted to contact you via email.

If you have yet to initiate a subscription, please access the IRIS Elements Marketplace and chose from the options available.
