Selecting items

The Batch Send window can contain the following sections. (Sections without records are automatically hidden.)

To select an item, expand the category and Check the desired item(s). Items from multiple categories can be selected, but attachments can only be emailed or uploaded to My Insurance Dashboard.

Selecting forms

The forms list includes categories, the form date, and the form description. All forms are also listed, regardless of their sequence.

Certificates also have their own category, similar to the forms tab.

Combine both the certificate tree and the availability of prior forms, and you gain access to older certificates for that policy.
