Substatuses

A substatus is a detailing of a regular status you can use to track your progress with an RFQ or policy. There are record substatuses and submission substatuses. You can choose a default substatus or add your own.

When you add a substatus, it is visible only to the users of your company. You can change the substatus at any time.

The substatus doesn't change when the regular status changes. You will have to change it manually. Substatuses don't have any influence on the status or reports.

Adding a record substatus

You can add a record substatus on the RFQ interface (for policies - the Policy interface) and the Options tab (for policies - the Policy tab):

  • On the RFQ interface (for policies - the Policy interface), click the record status at the top of the page.

Record substatus on the Options tab

You can type in your own substatus in the field or select a default one from the drop-down list (Additional Info Requested, Assigned, Information Received, Ready to Underwrite, Submitted). The maximum length of the substatus is 300 characters. 

Apart from the RFQ interface (for policies - the Policy interface) and the Options tab (for policies - the Policy tab), the added substatus will appear in the Substatus column on the Quote and Policy menu pages, as well as on the Insured menu pages next to the insured's record status.

You can add a submission substatus by clicking the submission status:

  • in the Status column on the Markets Selector.

Note: The Status pop-up isn't available for submarkets.

When applicable, the pop-up also allows you to change the regular status. If you can't change the status, the Status field will be read-only.

The submission substatus will be displayed in the Status column on the Markets Selector, as well as in the Submissions column on the Quotes menu > All Active page or any custom view where the Submissions column is configured.

Adding a custom substatus

You can add your own record and submission substatus as you go, or configure a set of your own substatuses on the Setup > Settings page:

  • Type a substatus in the Custom substatus field and click Add. If you want to add another custom substatus, just repeat this step.
  • Scroll down the page and click Save.

The substatuses you add there will be listed alongside default options when selecting a record or submission substatus.

Note: The Settings page is only available to admin users.
