Multiple Rep Codes



When an office has multiple advisors, it can be difficult for staff to identify who clients belong to. Whether there are junior and senior level advisors, or a single advisor office, it is important to identify whom clients belong to. Designate specific office people or teams for the various interactions a client has with the firm.


1. Create Servicing and Writing Advisors for all Advisors in the database.

4. Add a User Defined Field for “Rep Code” as a “list of values” type of UDF. Add the various rep codes as value choices within the UDF.

6. View clients with a specific rep code UDF through the Contact User Defined Fields Report.


By tracking rep codes, or the servicing vs. writing advisor, you can quickly identify the primary contact in an office for a specific client. This helps with the distribution of work within an office, and also gives visibility to additional features like permissions to all users in the database.
