Record an individual's identity numbers
On January 13, we're introducing a new Portal option to store a range of identity numbers directly in an individual's profile.
This replaces the old National ID field (but you can still record a national ID - simply select the National ID option from the ID type drop-down). All ID types and numbers you add will be visible in the individual's profile data.
You can use these new ID types to run checks for any data providers and checks that are already set up to use them.
Note that each profile can only have one ID type per country. For example, an individual can only have one British passport.
New profiles page is the default
If you've had a chance to try out the new profile's page, we hope you've been enjoying it!
The new design will become the default view on January 11.
If you haven't had time to try out the new view, don't worry. For now, you'll still be able to go back to the old view by clicking the option in the banner at the top of the Profiles page.
Have questions about the new design? Check out the help article to learn it works, or contact us - we'll be happy to help.
Improvements to Verify officers and Verify shareholders
We've added some improvements to make it easier to be sure you're adding the right officers and shareholders to the associates verification list and also act on new or updated results discovered during ongoing monitoring.
Here's what's changed:
- See all officer roles: If an officer holds multiple positions at the company, you can see all of them by clicking the officer's name.
- See which officers are resigned: Resigned officers are displayed at the bottom of the check results and they have their resignation dates displayed next to their name. Additionally, if you choose to move a resigned officer onto the associates verification list, a dialog is displayed asking you to confirm your choice.
- Quickly find the shareholders that own the company: Shareholders with the highest share percentage are displayed at the top of the check results.
- Catch new ongoing monitoring results: Just as before, if any new results are discovered for the Identify officers or Identify shareholders task, a new task version is created with the updated information. Now a banner is displayed on the new task version so you know why it's there.
To see these features, run a check on the Identify officers or Identify shareholders task.

New Profiles page
We've been listening to your feedback and have redesigned the Profiles page to make it easier to create a queue of applications to work through.
The new design is totally optional for the next few weeks, so you can try it out at your leisure.
It's all about the applications
The first thing you'll notice is that now the focus is on applications rather than profiles. This makes filtering and sorting a lot easier. All the options are surfaced at the top and are redesigned to be intuitive to use.
When you've applied filtering and sorting options, you can save your view with a click. After that, you can apply your custom view at any time.
More data, better decisions
The new design also shows you loads of information about the applications upfront, which makes it easier to find the applications you're looking for.
If a profile has multiple applications, you won't be distracted by the clutter.
Try it out
To see the changes, click Show me the new version in the banner at the top of the Profiles page.
If you want to go back, simply click Back to the old version.

Still coming soon: Improved PEPs, sanctions, and adverse media matches
In our last announcement, we missed a typo and gave the wrong release date for the improvements to PEPs, sanctions, and adverse media matches. Sorry about that!
The improvements are still coming, on Tuesday, 10th November.
We hope you're looking forward to them like we are. If you have any feedback or questions, we're here to help.
Coming soon: Improved PEPs, sanctions, and adverse media matches
Next Tuesday (October 27), we're releasing some improvements to PEPs, sanctions, and adverse media matches. We wanted to let you know what to expect on the day.
After the 27th, you'll see a more intuitive layout for the case report when you click a match.
All relevant information is surfaced up front, so it's faster to screen results and make informed decisions about your customers.
Here's what will change:
- All information from the case report will be consolidated into one screen.
- Customer profile data will be displayed to the right of the case report.
- If your data provider offers a PDF report, you can access it in a single click - no need to download it (though you can still download it if you want to).
We hope you'll find the improvements useful! If you have any feedback or questions, let us know - we'll be happy to help.
