Record Detail Overview

Record Detail Overview

Note: If you are still using the Legacy Record layout, see Record Detail Overview (Legacy) for more details.

The primary means of viewing and editing detailed information for a Record in AdvisorEngine CRM is in the Record Detail view. Nearly every relevant piece of data for a Record can be found in this view.

The Record Detail area contains a number of sections in which data may be stored. See below for reference of which sections are available, their purpose, and links to further information as needed.

Tip: The more complete and thorough you are when storing information in a Record, the greater flexibility you will have in reporting later on. Be sure to explore the Record Detail area thoroughly to determine which areas will be most important for your firm to consistently keep track of. We have created an Important Fields Best Practice Guide to help you determine which fields may be most useful.

Along the top of a Record are common navigation items and tools for working within a Record. See Navigating a Record for more details.
