Templates

Important - Any amendments made to a beneficiary's details via Manage Beneficiaries will not filter through to any templates they are attached to.

You can make processing easier and faster by creating templates that store a collection of payments details. For example, you can create a template for monthly payroll, which you can then reuse, instead of either having to select all the beneficiaries or entering the free-format payment details.

If you lose your Internet connection while you'e creating payments, an unfinished session template will be automatically created in Templates, Personal Templates. A message will be automatically sent to the Corporate Online Inbox advising that an Unfinished Payment Session template has been saved.
