What role entitlements do I need to import payments

  • In order to be able to import files into Commercial Banking Online and approve payments from imported files you need to have a role with the correct entitlements. These entitlements will need to be set-up by your administrator.

    For more background on Roles and information about other available Entitlements you can visit out Roles section.

    Your role will need to have separate entitlements to allow both Payment import and File import.

    For Payments import

    To allow access for Payment Import you will need to select the entitlement under each Payment type available in Commercial Banking Online, for example Payments > Faster Payment > Payment Import.

    You can select All to add all entitlements to the Role or alternatively if you want to restrict the ability of the Role to handle imports you can select the appropriate entitlements in the sub-menu.

    • Create – the Role can import and submit a Payment import for approval
    • Repair – the Role can repair imported payments in the Payment management screen
    • Modify – the Role can modify a payment from an imported file
    • Approve - the Role can approve payments from an import, which will allow you to:
      • Set the Number of votes the payment receives when approved by the Role (this option will be greyed out if your organisation uses panels)
      • Set the Transaction limit / Instruction limit that Role can approve in a single payment.
      • Set the Batch limit on the total amount that a Bacs payment can credit to multiple accounts.
      • Set the Daily limit that a Role can approve in a day, this will be for Bacs and Faster Payments only.
      • Set Approve own to allow a Role to create and approve a payment import.

        F&S icon For your security, and to help protect against fraud, we recommend this is only enabled where you have two or more approvers for each payment.
       
    • Unapprove – the Role canunapprove an imported payment
    • Delete – the Role can delete imported payments
    • View – the Role can view or see an imported payment

    For File Import

    To allow access for File Import you will need to select the File Import entitlement in the Payment tab. Once a user has been granted this entitlement they will be able to use File Import for all Payment types.

    You can select All to add all entitlements to the Role or alternatively if you want to restrict the ability of the Role to handle file imports you can select the appropriate entitlements in the sub-menu.

    • Create – the Role can import and submit a Payment import for approval
    • Approve - the Role can approve payments from an import, which will allow you to:
      • Set the Number of votes the payment receives when approved by the Role (this option will be greyed out if your organisation uses panels)
      • Set the Batch limit on the total amount that a Bacs payment can credit to multiple accounts.
      • Set the Daily limit that a Role can approve in a day, this will be for Bacs and Faster Payments only.
      • Set the Transaction limit / Instruction limit that Role can approve in a single payment.
      • Set Approve own to allow a Role to create and approve a payment import.
