New Features - 11-1 Build 2

Welcome to Collect! Version 11.1 Build 2. This latest version has many new features and functionality. There are also many optimizations and enhancements to existing features.

Record Event History

You can now cause Collect! to save a contact record for any type of contact when scheduling a contact plan. This is useful for storing changes, such as Status, exactly like a Phone or Letter contact. This gives you a Completed Date for reporting purposes. You can also turn this switch OFF if you do not want to create a contact when the event is executed. For instance, you could run a Letter event to print a letter and not create the Letter contact on the account. Please see Help topic Event for more information.

Misc Tab

On the Debtor form, the Misc form allows you to store additional information and switches for your accounts. This is an area where you can set flags as needed or store additional information on the account. There are several user-defined Number, Date, Time and Switch fields. You can use a control file to set the labels on this form as required. Please see Help topic Misc for details.

Display Notes Automatically

Switch this ON in the Operator Detail if you want the Notes tab to always be selected when moving onto a Debtor form. When this switch is OFF, the last highlighted tab is displayed when moving to another debtor.

Please refer to Help Topic Operator Detail for more information.

Disable Account Matching

Switch this ON in the Operator Detail to disable account matching for this particular operator. This will override the global account matching settings. This lets you use account matching on your system, yet allows certain operators to be able to navigate debtors without Collect! performing the account matching functions. Typically, system administrators and junior collectors would have this switch turned ON, while data entry operators would have this switch turned OFF. Turning this switch ON disables account matching only for this operator.

Please refer to Help Topic Operator Detail for more information.

Prompt Before Grouping Accounts

Switch this ON in the Operator Detail if you want Collect! to prompt before grouping accounts. When entering or modifying fields on the Debtor form, this prompt lets the user choose between grouping or not grouping the account to other matching accounts that Collect! finds in your system.

Please refer to Help Topic Operator Detail for more information.

Batch Letter Options - Max Letters

A new Max Letters field in the Batch Letters Options form enables you to limit the number of letters actually printed. If unspecified, ALL letters in the Date Range are processed, otherwise only the number specified will be processed. You can mark the contacts as Done to finish the printing process. Print any remaining outstanding letters in a new batch, if needed.

Please refer to Help Topic Batch Letter Options for more information.
