  3. Click Save.
  4. In the ConnectWise Manage Portal select Company, Company Search, Company.

    • The ECHO account username must be unique for each company so the ECHO account can link with the ConnectWise Company.

    • The echo_username field should only be populated if it is different from the Company ID.
