The Wizards module provides many timesaving features for Suite users. Document creation is combined with database updates, and complex or tedious tasks can be accomplished with a minimum of effort. Each wizard provides step-by-step instruction for performing the specified task.
Categories are a method of grouping wizards based on their function. As new wizards are added to Suite, categories will keep them organized.
Only a user with Reports Administrator or System Administrator access rights can assign a wizard to a category with the exception of Favorites. To add a wizard to your list of favorites, select the item and click Add to Favorites.
Address Consolidation Wizard — Allows you to merge multiple address records in the case of an entity being merged or an address change.
