Setting Up Advanced Collections

1. Oracle Advanced Collections provides a user interface to guide you through
the implementation process. As you answer questions and make decisions about how you will use the application, Advanced Collections sets system profile options in the background at the site level. It also performs setup tasks, such as displaying tabs and creating scoring engines. After completing your implementation, you can continue to use the Checklist to manage and update key features such as scoring and strategies.

2. If you are upgrading from a previous version, Oracle Advanced Collections will
populate the Questionnaire and Checklist to reflect your earlier product configuration. You must review the Questionnaire and Checklist to verify that the settings correctly migrated and support your business practices. Make changes if necessary. If you use dunning plans, you must change the default collections method in the Questionnaire from strategies to dunning plans. The Questionnaire and Checklist set profile options at the site level and will not affect existing profile options set at the user, application, or responsibility level. Your responses to the Questionnaire and Checklist will not override any profile options previously set at any level other than the site level.
