PensionPro 2.0 - Adding a Client, Plan, or Contact

Looking for the Desktop version of this article?

 

Clients, Plans, and Contacts are linked through the hierarchy of data within PensionPro:

  • First, a Client must be created
  • Then, one or more Plans are attached to the Client.
  • Any Contacts associated with a Plan are attached on the Plan level (although it is possible to create a Contact without attaching it to a Plan).

 

This article covers the process of adding a Client, Plan, or Contact in PensionPro.

 

Tier Availability: Track, Core, Essential, Premium, Team, Business

Security Rights Required: Add/Edit Client, Add/Edit Plan, Add/Edit Contact

 

Note: During the process of adding Clients, Plans, and Contacts, many input fields populate their dropdown options by pulling in List Values. More information on List Values can be found in the article Maintaining List Values.

Note: Some features may not be available in all tiers.
