Draft cases enable you to create a case, input part of the information, then leave it in your First AML Dashboard until you are ready for the case to be actioned. The First AML team cannot view your case until you submit it through to 'In progress' status. 

Benefits of using the draft functionality:

  • You can input basic case information before going to meet your clients in person, then use the 'Verify Now' button to verify your clients with your smartphone. This saves you from having to input case information while you are with the clients in person.
  • If you are verifying multiple individuals, you can verify one, leave the case in draft and then when you meet the other individual, you can go back into the case. You can also verify any individuals once you have submitted the case.

  • You can submit the basic case information, leave in draft and then add any additional notes, case contacts details or information in the notes section at a later time. Once the case is submitted, you will not be able to amend the notes section. 


How to create a draft case
