Producer ID Explained

A single producer may have more than one ID reference in the enterprise for various reasons.

The most common reason is that different custodians assign advisor id's.  This list is automatically maintained by the downloads, but may also be maintained by the System Administrator and the Advisors Assistant API (Application Programmer's Interface.)

The Producer ID can be used by Broker Dealers to keep track of a Client's association with a producer's licensing where the producer is licensed in different states or associated with different custodians.

You should not remove a Producer ID unless you are sure it is not in use.

ID's may be associated with individual contact names by using the Modify Names Screen.

Docupace Tab

Enter the Docupace Rep Code.  This is assigned by either your BD or Docupace.  The Rep Code is required if you want to send new contact data from Client Marketing Systems, Inc. to Docupace to set up new contact records in Docupace.

The Rep Code is associated with the Primary Producer in Advisors Assistant, so this is the credentials issues to the Advisor or Rep who is the Primary Producer on the contact record.  When you set up a contact in Docupace, it will be associated with the Rep Code of the Advisors Assistant primary producer.

Changing the Producer on this screen reassigns ALL clients and products from the old name to the new name.  This should only be done by an administrator.
