How to use Pins

Pins can be used to identify and sort Companies on different levels. Pins are a great way to add an extra level of organisation to the companies you're managing.



To search and filter a Company via a pin, select a pin from the table and a new tab will appear with the Companies associated with this pin:



1.    Types of pins

Note: The pin Annual Fees Paid Upfront will only apply to Companies that paid the 10 Year Annual Statement fees before the most current Annual Statement invoice was issued, the pin will automatically be applied to the company in Corporate Messenger if the total amount owing in the Annual Statement is less than or equal to 0. If the 10 Year Annual Statement fees are paid after the most recent invoice has been generated then the pin will not be applied to the company until the following year's Annual Statement is issued with the total amount owning as 0.
