Updating the Default Policy Types List

How to update your default Policy Types List. You must be a Service Provider Administrator to be able to access Insurance Settings.

Having a fixed list of insurance policy types gives you more control of the information being entered in WhosOnLocation. It avoids double-ups and spelling mistakes, controls naming conventions, and it keeps information more organized. This list can be managed from the Insurance Settings.

Policy Types are used when adding policies to a Service Provider Organization's account.

Managing your Policy Types

1. Go to Tools > Service Provider Manager

2. Select Insurance Settings from the left-hand menu

You will land on the Policy Types tab. Here you can rename, remove, or add new policy types.


To rename a Policy Type, click the green View button next to the type, edit the name, and click Save.

To remove a Policy Type select the Delete button alongside the type and click Remove on the confirmation.

Please Note: You cannot delete a Policy Type if it has been assigned to one or more policies.

To add a new Policy Type click the green Add Policy Type button found above the list of Policy Types, enter your new Policy Type Name, and click Save.
