Overview

The procedure we will discuss is actually very simple. When you import your accounts, assign the accounts to an operator and schedule a review. Then you can open that operator's WIP List and run a batch process routine on the accounts.

The details of this procedure are up to you. You will decide how you want to process the new accounts

Assigning The Accounts To An Operator

There are several ways that you can assign accounts to an operator during the import routine.

1. Assign accounts to a Collector from the Import Menu form and Run a Contact Plan to schedule a review.

2. Pick an Operator ID in the Import Options form and Schedule a review. To open the Import Options form, select the button labeled Import Options on the File Format Specification form.

As of version CV11.6.2.9, a new switch was added to "Apply client settings". Check this switch if you want your preset values from the Client Setup and Advanced Client Settings screen to be passed a long to the debtor files as part of the import process. Example, Commission Rates, Tax Rates, Sales ID.

These are the two easiest ways to assign an operator and schedule a review, although they are not the only ways.
