You can search between a time frame (Enter Start & End Date) or by a selected email and then click the green Apply Filter button.The audit log is available to help you keep a record of transactions on the system and also to record any misuse, the system audit log will never be deleted and will record all system actions.
The Recycle Bin tab contains all items you have deleted - Items can be recovered by clicking the blue Restore button next to the item you'd like to recover.
The Provider Settings tab is where you can add, view & edit provider settings.
The example below is for Nucleus, you can select any provider from the drop down list.
To edit a particular provider settings such as value or retry ID click the blue edit button next to the required entry.
Emails sent via the Adviser Cloud Portal can be viewed by clicking the View Emails tab.
Items are reviewed based on their last review date, Alert days are the maximum number of days a product can be active before it needs to be reviewed, if a product has never been reviewed then the last review date is assumed to be when the product was created.
To prevent getting lots of task alerts for legacy products that may have existed for a while, i.e. Before you started using advisor cloud, then we put in thresholds to allow for products to be checked within a date range. Date Ranges are from the selected value below plus 6 months.
Example: If you select to 'Alert me regarding items that haven't been reviewed in 2 Years' then the system will check for items not reviewed between 2 and 2.5 years. If you are getting too many tasks then try changing the frequency to a lower value, like weekly or daily, this will ensure that you are getting items on a daily basis.
If you're still getting more Tasks than you can handle on a daily basis, then we can put a limit threshold in, which will only give you x tasks a day, but that means that the rest will remain unallocated in the system.
