This article will walk you through creating a statement run, sending statement links via email and text, and printing statements for mailing. The final section will show you how to mark your statement run complete after sending statements. We recommend that you review your statement configuration settings before starting this process.

Creating a statement run

  • Login to the V2 admin portal and navigate to Finance tab > Statements menu > Click the Statements link

  • Click the Create a statement run button

  • In the Description text box, type a description for this run of statements

  • In the Statement Period section, click the radio button for the option you need (full year or date range)

For a full year: type in the year for the statements you wish to run

For a date range: select start and end date for the statements you wish to run

  • Click the Create Run button

  • Your screen will update to show that statistics are being generated for your statement run

  • Periodically refresh your browser page until the statement run details page is available

  • You are now ready to start sending statements!

Sending statements

The statement run details page provides you with a lot of information. (Refer to image above)

  • In the top right-hand corner of the page, you will see a status for this run. The status will remain In Progress until you complete the statement tasks and mark the run as Complete.

  • Below that, you will see the description and date range for this statement run. You have the option to change the description by clicking the Change run description link

  • In the Summary section, you will see a list of recipient groups and the number of statements sendable by that method:

Sendable by email: recipient has an email address on their profile

Sendable by text: recipient does not have an email address, but does have a mobile number login

Mailable: recipient does not have an email address or mobile number login but does have a mailing address. Organizations with a mailing address are also included in this group.

Not sendable: any recipient that does not fall in one of the other groups
