Validation rules define the requirements that a producer's profile must contain before that producer can create an appointment request in SureLC. They do NOT affect an agency worker's ability to create appointment requests on behalf of the producer. This article describes how to configure your agency's validation rules.
To access the validation rules login to SureLC, select Agency L&C Setup and on the General Info tab click on the Validation Rules button. The following window will be shown which is made up of 2 sections.
1. The top half of the validation rules window is used to first select what to review or modify such as the default settings assigned to new producers, or the required settings for a specific affiliation.
Please note that the default rules apply to all affiliations "by default". You can see which affiliations are inheriting the default rules by hovering your mouse pointer over the text below the top box as shown here:
You can set different validation rules for each affiliation by selecting that affiliation, changing the options on the bottom half of the window, then clicking the Apply button. After doing so that affiliation will no longer appear in the list of those inheriting the default rules.
2. The bottom half of the Validation Rules screen shows the settings that can be mandated as required by producers BEFORE they can submit appointment requests. Any setting that has the check box selected is required. Please review the setting definitions below to become familiar with each setting BEFORE making any changes to these rules.
After making changes to ANY of these settings you MUST click the Apply button before they will go into effect. The following message will be shown on the bottom of the top box after making changes as a reminder:
