In this article we explain how to setup the default ‘send’ rules for your Policy Expiry Notifications. You must be a Service Provider Administrator to be able to access Insurance Settings to manage the default send rules.
Setup your Default Send Rules
- Navigate to Tools > Service Provider Manager.
- Select Insurance Settings from the directory on the left side of screen.
- Select the Policy Notice ‘Send’ Rules tab from the upper tab options.
Policy Notices ‘Send’ Settings
Manage when your insurance expiry notifications should go out to the internal and/or policy owner recipients.
You can set this initial notice (Notice 1) to be sent automatically:
- 3 months (90 Days),
- 2 months (60 Days),
- 1 month (30 Days), or
- 10 Days
…. prior to the actual expiry.
You can also choose to have a reminder (Notice 2) sent:
- 2 months (60 Days)
- 1 month (30 Days) or
- 10 Days prior to the actual expiry
The only rule is Notice 2 must be a period less than Notice 1.
If the Policy is not made Inactive or its expiry date updated, then a 3rd notice (Notice 3) is sent advising of the expiry of the Policy. Any update to the Policy Expiry Date after Notice 1 has been issued but before Notice 2 is issued will result in Notice 2 not being sent.
Expiry Notification Email Editor
The Policy Expiring Notices that are emailed to your nominated recipients are pre-formatted and you are not required to do anything unless you wish to customize them to meet the requirements of your organization.
Within each of Notice 1, 2, and 3 there are two (2) emails. One for the internal Recipients and another for the Policy Holders (the contact within the Service Provider organization.
You can edit the default notices created for you and use ‘Placeholders’ to insert dynamically generated data. The Placeholder is a data reference contained within double curly brackets. Placeholders allow you to access data when defining logic within your notice templates.
