AE Practice Manager (AE PM) allows the option to import disbursements after first ensuring the system is setup correctly to allow permissions to import.

To set the permission to allow for importing disbursements

The instructions below use the example of setting the permission to allow for the security group of Basic 2.

  1. In AE PM, follow the menu path Maintenance > Security > Task Permissions. The Task Permissions screen appears.

  2. Select the product Practice Manager in the Product field. The product displays.

  3. Select Basic 2 from the Group field. The group displays.

  4. Expand the Employee Group Description by clicking the [+] symbol. The Permissions Description values appear.

To import disbursements please refer to Importing disbursements
We recommend that the file to import reside locally on c:\ or on the network disk. A log is generated as a result of the import and is output to the same location as the import file.

Refer to File format for importing disbursements into Practice Manager for file formatting details.

Disbursements are imported into an unsubmitted sheet so they can be checked and edited if necessary prior to being posted.
