Improved External Organization Search Capability

Based on customer feedback, searching for External Organizations by the Admissions Testing Program (ATP) Code has been enhanced. The ATP Code has been added as a search field to the Organization Table page so you can now search for external organizations by a partial or complete ATP Code. You no longer need to perform an ATP Code search using the Org Search page.

OTHER SEARCH OPTIONS:
If the ATP Code is unknown, you can continue to search for external organizations by the External Org ID or a combination of Search Name and geographical information on the Organization Table page.

UPDATED DOCUMENT:
The 'Add and Update External Organizations - Step-by-Step' procedure has been updated and includes:
-- New instructions about how to search using an ATP Code
-- Examples of other search options

Revenue Management Design Teams

Revenue is the second functional area of DART to be designed. The design is spread over two groups. The first team has ten representatives, two of whom are also part of the Design Core Team. After careful consideration, we established the second revenue team to pay special consideration to the “Life Cycle of the Gift.” In particular, this group is concerned with business processes involved after securing a gift.
