Custom Provisions in PICSWeb Configuration

The free Lists and Types Course in our PICS Course Directory features a video guiding you through custom provision configuration.

In PICSWeb List and Type Configuration, you can set up and maintain custom provisions to improve the Vacancy Matching functionality. Custom provisions can be linked to the following record types:

Selecting Lists and Types > Custom Provisions from the side menu will open a page showing any provisions that have already been set up. For each provision, the following details are shown:

  • Code

  • Description

  • Status – This indicates whether the provision is Live or Dormant.

Filtering the List

The option to search by Code and Description and filter by Status and Number of Records shown are available by default above the list. Once you have entered the necessary details, press Enter or select the Search icon to run the search and apply your filters.

Exporting the List

Selecting More shows an option to Export to Excel. Selecting this will generate an Excel Spreadsheet containing the details currently displayed in the list.

Creating a New Provision

Selecting Create will open a window where you can enter the Code and Description for the new provision.

Once you have finished, select Save to add the new provision or Cancel to discard it. 

Provision Actions

The following actions are also available from the provisions tab:

  • Edit – Selecting ... > Edit by a provision in the list will open a window where you can edit the Description and Status. Once you have made any changes, select Save to confirm them.

  • Delete – Selecting ... > Delete by a provision in the list will delete it. This should only be done for provisions entered in error. For a provision that has been used, you should instead set the status to Dormant. You will be asked to confirm before you delete the record.
