2021

New Module! Workflow Manager

The Workflow Manager is a comprehensive module within Salentica Elements, designed to efficiently control, manage, and automate business processes. It offers a series of tools to create and manage workflows, each uniquely configured to align with the various processes within your firm. Workflow Manager includes Templates, Launcher, and Workflows objects.

 

New Entity! Employment History

Use Employment History to track a Contact’s current & past employment history over the years.

 

New Entity! Financial Plan

This is where these details about the Financial Plan can be logged, revisited, and adjusted as needed for team members to reference when having important discussions with clients.

 

New Entity! Tax Filing

With Tax Filings, Salentica Engage allows you to easily track high-level, and historical, details about your client's tax situation, and keep that information in a central location.

 

New Report! Relationship Summary Report

We have created a Relationship Summary Report that shows you key points about a single Relationship, and you can export this information into many different formats, including Excel, Word, PowerPoint, or even PDF.

 

Relationship Profile Score

Using the Relationship Profile Score, you can determine the data points most important for your team, and come up with a score, value, or data point, that shows you how complete your records are!

 

Interaction Service Module- Custom Activity Types

This update allows custom naming for the standard Activity Types to be used for InTouch.

 

Activities Plus-Default Date

The Activities date field will now default to the current date/time when setup.

 

Former Client Updates

When the Relationship Type is changed to Former Client, all the Relationship Member Contacts Type will be adjusted from Client to Former Client.

 

Deactivate Relationships

You can choose to automatically deactivate Activities, Contacts, Financial Accounts, Portfolios, etc., when you deactivate a Relationship.

 

Opportunity & Lead Updates

We have added time stamps to the Opportunity Pipeline steps so that you can accurately see the length of time your Opportunities are in each Phase. A secondary Contact lookup has been added to the Opportunity form so that you can have more than one Contact per Opportunity. Upon Lead qualification, the Contact on that Lead will automatically be identified as a Prospect on their Contact record.

 

Address Inheritance from Company

Not all Contacts are related to a Relationship, but instead a Company. Address Inheritance now allows Contacts to inherit the address from their associated Company.

 

Adjustments to Default Audit Entities & Fields

 

Auditing in Engage can consume large amounts of log storage with a small number of entities and fields that update frequency. Engage now comes with auditing turned off on specific Entities and Fields.

 

Link to Salentica Help Center

We want you to have the most, up-to-date help for Salentica Engage that there is! You can now link directly to our Help Center through your Engage website directly through the question mark in the top right menu.
