The Party Types hyperlink under Parties in the Application Administration | Parties & Entities sidebar allows site administrators and super users to adjust the types of parties that appear in the drop-down list when adding a member to a matter. Identifying party members help establish what relationship the individual has with a matter record. For example, while a party (or person) may be in your system only once, they may be a witness on one matter record and a plaintiff in another.
