Jump to: navigation, search

Set of custom fields grouped together into a specific transaction type and linked to a role. For example, a candidate role may have a career type transaction. Multiple transaction records can be linked to a single contact in that role.

Personal transactions also represent items that the user maintains in their profile using the UCI.

  • The administrator defines the transaction types.
  • Examples of transaction types are education, work history, or publications history.
  • Each transaction type supports custom fields, a list view template, and the ability to control if the transaction type is available to the user, via the UCI.
  • Each transaction type can be associated with one or more roles within the system.
  • These transactions are also visible within the administrative interface for each contact.
  • When a user subscribes to a folder, their profile becomes searchable to all other users subscribed to the folders.
  • The Administrator defines the folders and associates the folders with each UCI.
  • These folders are actually constructs from the SmartSimple Applicant Tracking system.

Each Transaction type consists of the following standard settings:

  • Name - name of the transaction type. For example: Education.
  • Type - choose people, for people-related transactions or company, for company-related transactions.
  • Display Order - the order in which the transaction types should be listed, in both the administrative interface, and the UCI.
  • Associated Roles - the roles to be associated with this transaction type. Use everyone to associate the transaction type with all users.
  • Deny Review Roles - the roles to be associated with this transaction type that you want to deny view ability.
  • Use Publication Service – indicates that this transaction type can be completed using a web service such as PUBMED. Enabling this option will display a service lookup link in the User Centric Interface when the user adds a transaction of this type.
  • Use Third party Verification Service - You can store the values returned from the external database search in the transaction custom fields.
  • Built-in Fields - there are four standard fields associated with a generic transaction type: start date, end date, subject, and description. If these fields are not required, set their label settings to blank.
  • Field Button - provides a link to the custom field list for this transaction type.
