Using Passfort

Run checks

Use checks to help pass the due diligence tasks for a profile’s product application.

Checks replace the manual work that would otherwise be needed to get information from data providers; for example, gathering all company filings from a corporate registry; or to perform actions using data providers; for example, running an electronic identity check.

For example, you can run an Electronic identity check or Document verification check for the Verify identity task. If you want to see them all, here is the list of every check you can run.

You'll see the checks you can use for your task as buttons along the top of the task.

Select the button to run the check. The information that was used to run the check is displayed, followed by the results of the check.

If you run the check again, the new results are displayed before the old ones. This means you always have a "snapshot" of the checks that were run and the information used to run each one.

Frequently asked questions
  • Why are the check buttons grayed out?

    You can only run checks on tasks that are not yet passed or failed. To make the task incomplete, click Task passed or Task failed. If the task is incomplete and the button is still grayed out, your company has not configured the check.

  • Why was there information in the check results already?

    A colleague or the product's smart policy may have already run a check on the task. Remember that the results of a check may be different if you run it again. For example, if the individual has changed their address since the check was last run.

  • Why did the task pass automatically when I ran the check?

    Your smart policy may be configured so that when a check passes, the task passes automatically.
