Third-Party Administrator Enhancements

Image of a wrench on a keyboardArbitration Forums, Inc. has been releasing new enhancements to E-Subro Hub in 2018 to improve user efficiencies. The upcoming enhancements scheduled for September 2018 will be visible primarily to TPAs involved in an E-Subro Hub workflow. The functionality has been available for member-owned demands but will now be accessible for demands assigned to a TPA.

TPA Enabled for Mass Reassign
The Mass Reassign functionality allows the bulk reassignment of demands from a user or a business unit to another user or business unit within a company. The TPA security administrators can assign the ‘Subro Mass Reassign’ privilege under the ‘Set Privileges’ tab of the ‘User Maintenance’ page for a TPA user.

The TPA user with the ‘Subro Mass Reassign’ privilege will see ‘Mass Reassign’ listed under the E-Subro menu.

TPA Enabled for Team Management
The Team Management functionality allows a team leader to identify users that he/she manages and then view a complete list of demands for the entire team. The TPA security administrators can access the ‘Team management feature’ option in the ‘E-Subro Hub Configurations’ tab. The Team Management feature is activated by selecting ‘Enable teams.’

Once the functionality is enabled, the TPA users will see ‘My Team’ under the E-Subro > My Demands menu.
