- Click Edit Prompts Link and enter your Business Unit.
- Optional Click Preview Selection Results to see a sample of the population limited to the first 300 rows. To see the entire population, you can run the query in query viewer.
How does CTC_SF_PDUE_CRDHIST identify your population? The query looks for those that are customers that have a past due balance. Limiting the unnecessary volume of calculating accounts that are not past due. The query also looks for individuals in the COLLECTION_SF table that now have $0 past due, except for when they have made a Collection Agreement, so long as they are paying as agreed.
When customers are in the COLLECTION_SF table that generally means we are sending them past due notices, see Process Collections.
- The Service Indicator Update check box is used to assign/release service indicators to the student’s records, provided criteria is met from the service indicator set.
