Creditor Disbursements via ACH

Disbursements to Creditors can be made via ACH instead of a check file. To enable ACH Disbursements:

  • Add a Bank record with the Creditor’s Bank ACH information
  • Update the Creditor record and link it with the new Bank
  • When this is done, a new drop down appears in the (DS) Check view that allows selection of Creditors with ACH disbursements.
  • Select the Creditor and generate an ACH file instead of a Check file

Add ability to assign Client records to Users

Similar to how Leads can be assigned to Users, Clients can now be assigned to Users.

Assignment can be performed via the Admin tab in the Client record or in bulk via the Manager Report.

Filters and columns have been added throughout DMA Reports including: All Clients, Client Balances, Search, Client Docs, Client Messages.

There is a new Assignment Report that displays the number of assignments per User by Client Phase.

There is a new DocumentTemplate variable called $UserBackend that contains the information of this user.

Task functionality remains unchanged for the DMA.

Payment Change Fee Action Shortcut

In order to improve the process of creating a Payment record for payment date change requests, a new shortcut has been added to the Client/Accounting/Payment tab.

The shortcut can be enabled if Payment Change fees are used by setting to System Setting variables:

PAYMENT_CHANGE_FEE_AMOUNT
PAYMENT_CHANGE_EXCLUDE_STATES

The shortcut is not displayed for Clients residing in states listed in PAYMENT_CHANGE_EXCLUDE_STATES.

Credit Score storage change

All Credit Scores are now stored in a central location for both Clients and CoApps under a Client tab labeled FICO.

Previously Credit Scores were stored in three different locations:

  1. Client Budget section
  2. CoApp record
  3. Housing tab

All previous scores have been moved to the new table.

There is a new DocumentTemplate variable that stores all the scores named: $CreditScore

When a Credit Report is pulled, a new entry is automatically made into the CreditScore table so that a history of scores is retained.

Support for ACH WEB Transactions

Payment records can now specify the use of the WEB ACH SEC type. WEB can be manually selected when a Payment record is created. This helps facilitate pulling for one time transactions authorized via the extranet.

If no selection is made, Payment records default to the PPD SEC type.
