Edit company associates on a verification list

When an associate is on the verification list, you can update their data by copying information from an imported associate or by editing the profile’s collected data. If the associate is a shareholder, you can also edit their share percentage directly from the verification list.

The following fields are completed automatically and cannot be edited:
- Verification status: Indicates the status of the associate’s verification and approval. To learn more, see Verifying and approving company associates.
- Roles: When the associate appears on multiple verification lists as part of this application, every role that the associate is being verified for is displayed here (e.g. Director and Beneficial Owner).
- Provider role: The associate’s role for the current verification list, as returned by the data provider. It may be more specific than what’s displayed for Roles.
- PassFort ID: A unique identifier used for the API.
To edit an authorised person’s relationship, add a new authorised person with the same name, adding the relationship you want to use to the Relationship field in the Create new authorised person dialog. When the Resolve possible duplicates dialog is displayed, select the original profile. To learn more, see Resolving possible duplicates.

Copy information from imported associates

When you’ve imported a list of associates from your data provider, you can copy the information from any imported associate to an associate already on the verification list.

This is an especially useful feature when your workflow starts with adding associates manually. You can add an associate, only providing their name and, if the associate is a company, country of incorporation. Then you can import a list of associates from one or more data providers to get the full details of the associates and copy those details into your verification list.

To learn more about importing associates, see Import a list of associates.
This feature is not available for authorised persons.

To copy information from an imported associate to an associate on the verification list:

  1. Locate the associate on the verification list.
  2. Click the Copy information from other associates dropdown. A list of every imported associate of the same type (individual or company) is displayed. Associates are grouped by the data provider used to import them.
This dropdown is only displayed after you’ve imported at least one associate.
  1. Select an associate on the list. The Copy associate data dialog is displayed.
    1. The name of every field that can be copied is displayed in the Field name column.
    2. The data of the associate in the verification list is displayed in the Existing data column.
    3. The data of the imported associate is displayed in the New data column.
If the imported associate does not have data for a particular field, that field is not displayed in the dialog.
  1. By default, all available data is copied from the imported associate. Deselect any data you don’t want to copy.
  2. Click Copy. The data of the associate on the verification list is updated to match the selected imported data.
