November 2018 Update: Dashboard and Contribution Statuses & Notes

Dashboard View
Using the new dashboard view, you’re able to see a continuous stream of all the records added to your account across different people and companies, and organize them as needed. You can also use filters to see records detected within the last day, week, or month.

Filtering
In the dashboard, there’s additional filtering on new records, allowing you to view records that are new today, new this week, or new this month. We’ve also added filtering by status, so that you can differentiate between records you’ve already dealt with, and those you still need to review. Several new tabs allow you to quickly pull up a list of records by status.

Approval Status You’re now able to quickly mark contribution records “to do”, “approved” or “not approved” to make sure contributions have been reviewed and flag records for further investigation. Any status changes you make are tied to that record throughout your illumis account.

Notes
You can now add notes to individual records. Any special comments, additional details, or process updates can be directly linked to a record using a note. Within your workflow, use notes to indicate if a record has been pre-cleared, is under review, or is awaiting approval. The note will be attached to that record, no matter where you view it in illumis.

Pay-to-play regulations (and associated risk) doesn’t simply turn off during the off-election years.

Fact: political contributions are on the rise.
compliance updates
Political activism is at an all time high. And with it? The pay-to-play risk for financial firms who rely on government contracted work. As the number of state and local pay-to-play rules increase, so do the number of stipulations compounding the complexity for firms potentially already struggling with the risk of violation. Not only do firms have to worry about complying with commonly known federal regulations like the SEC and FINRA pay-to-play rules, but also additional, specific state or local rules.
