The Copy function allows you to create a copy of the Template Record (TAD) (also known as a TR) of the retrieved Source Record. This can be used for the same Toll-Free Number (TFN), or a different target TFN. You can set the Effective Date and Time of the copied record to a future date and time, or to "Now” to have it take effect immediately. When you select the “Copy” icon, a "Copy Template Record" pop-up window is displayed.
There are 4 sections in the Copy Template Record pop-up window: the Source Record, Target Record, Action and Copy Portions from Source. The portions to be copied from (i.e. Source Record) can be copied to the Target Record section as desired, or new information entered for the target record. The Action to be performed can be selected using radio buttons and the Copy Portions from Source allow you to select sections of the Source Record to copy: TR Basic Data, CPR and LAD. Any number of the sections can be selected, or none, by selecting the appropriate check boxes.
Steps to Copy a TR:
- Access the TR page and enter the Active Template Name.
- Select the “Retrieve” button and view all versions of the record listed in the Effective Date/Time drop down menu.
- Select the "Active" version of the record to be copied and select the “Retrieve” button again.
- Select the “Copy” icon and the Copy Template Record pop-up window is displayed.
- Copy or enter desired values in the Target Record section of the pop-up window, noting that the TFN or Template Name and the Effective Date are required fields. Please Note: If the check box under the "Now" option is selected, the Effective Date/Time fields are not required.
- Select the desired action. Please Note: If you select "Disconnect", it will be removed as soon as its Effective Date/Time is reached.
- Select any of the "Copy Portions from Source" check boxes to have those sections copied to the target record. For example, if you select the "CPR or LAD" options, those are the portions that will be copied.
- Select the “Submit” button in the Copy Template Record pop-up window. You will see a message at the top, "Copy is Pending and you must save or submit the record to complete the Copy Action". This is a reminder to select either the "Submit" or the "Save" buttons after updates (if needed) have been completed.
- Please Note: If you select the “Save” button, it will save the Target Record with the entered changes and it will also alert you of any errors in the "More Details" button (this can also be viewed in the Immediate Validation Results (IVR) page for the Target Record once saved) in the upper right corner, but it will not go into effect until the “Submit” button has been selected.
