ODP Manager depends on updated information from an extract file created by your core processor. This daily file is imported and updates the hosted ODP Manager software so that letters can be generated, and reports reviewed. Each user of the software can manually import this extract file by selecting the file to upload and committing the account data. In addition to this option, Strunk also allows institutions to set up an automatic upload process.
If your institution has the core extract file set up to generate automatically, you may be eligible to use the Automatic Upload. In addition to your extract file generating each day automatically to a specific location, there is a one-time setup process. During setup, a client that performs the upload will be installed and the user and file variables specific to your institution will be configured. Then a scheduled task will be created to initiate the import process after the extract file is updated and before your users go to work.
Your users will still retain the ability to manually import the daily data file if the scheduled process does not run as expected. Once the import has completed, the Automatic Upload process will send an email to your users – alerts can be sent to specific individuals or to a specified group email address.
Making this change should make your file import process more efficient. Get ready to benefit from immediate access to the updated ODP Manager information as soon as your users start their day.
