December 2018 Update: Custom Statuses and Attachments

Custom Record Statuses
Last month, we launched a feature that allows you to categorize records. We received lots of positive feedback but many customers wanted to be able to further customize statuses. With this update you can now configure your own statuses (up to 5), and customize them to better match your internal workflows and documentation processes.

A quick note: If you change an existing status, that change will update any existing record with that status. For example, if you change the “approved” status to “pre-cleared”, the new label will apply to all existing records that were labeled with the “approved” status. Additionally, if you delete an existing status, all contributions will be relabeled to your account’s default status setting.

Attachments
The notes feature on records just got more powerful. Now, when you add notes on a record, you can upload and attach files as well. Any file (DOC, PDF, CSV, JPG, XLS etc) up to 100 MB can be added to a record as an attachment.

Navigation Improvements
We adjusted the placement of a few features to improve ease of use and simplify the interface. Now, you can access the Dashboard by clicking “illumis”. And when you’d like to view, add, or make changes to monitored employees or companies, go to the “Monitoring” tab. You can find reports and other settings (including customizing record labels) in the drop-down menu under your account name in the top right corner.

Please Note: This post was updated in June 2020 to reflect our company’s new name: illumis


compliance updates
David Lombardy recently launched his own regulatory and compliance consulting firm, Pillar Compliance Group, to assist investment managers with the development, implementation, and ongoing monitoring of their compliance programs. In reviewing the regulatory environment around pay-to-play compliance, he saw the value in using illumis’ political contribution monitoring platform to provide the best risk coverage available for his clients.
compliance updates
For the last few months, Blucora – a FinTech company providing software solutions for wealth management and tax preparation – has waged a war against Ancora, an Ohio-based investment advisor who had acquired a minority stake in the company and sought to reconstitute Blucora’s board.
