Create Account Application
In order to start a new account application which the customer can complete themselves you would click the button titled Create Account Application to open the dialogue below.
The properties are similar to the Create Account dialogue but a bit fewer. Once confirmed the application will appear on the customer portal as well.
The customer can select to edit the application to complete any associated questionnaires and then submit the application for review.
When the customer clicks "Send" an approval screen is shown and the application status will then change.
The "Send"-button has disappeared and the application is waiting for approval.
Backoffice users can now continue to approve the application by creating the account.
