A Few Examples >Enhance the DI Screens. >Enhance the DI detail screen by making the Benefit period and Elimination Period drop down box with custom choices instead of free formatted fields. This will allow better reporting and speed up my data entry.
A Few Examples >Open up all tables to report against >We need to be able to report against the Advisor License table and show any pending cases that may be affected because this license is now expired.
A Few Examples >I cant tell when I sent a requirement to the Home Office >I want to be able to see both when I sent a requirement to the Home Office and when they receipted it side by side on the PCM requirements screen
A Few Examples >The licensing checks are not working. >When adding a new pending case and I get the message that an advisor is not licensed to sell LTC. I send it to the Licensing department but the entry disappears from my case after a period of time. Bad example: This is a BUG, not a wish list request
