- Select the Group Description "WcComp Rate Import."
- For each supplier:
- In MapFromID column enter the SupplierName value that will be entered in the import spreadsheet
- In the MapToID select the supplier that the MapFromID value should map to.
User Access to Import
To give a user access to the WcCode import:
- Go to Admin Tools > System > Report > Advance Query tab
- Select WcComp Rate Import in the QueryName column.
- Select the User radio button.
- Check the checkbox next to the user name of the users you would like to have access to this import.
- Click Save
An Excel file with the following columns in the exact order shown below is required for the WcComp Rate Import. Please use attached sample if manually generating file.
- This does not need to match the actual supplier name, and will be handled in the Import Export Mapping group.
- If updating WcCode rates then the WcCode must match exactly what it is in Avionté. Otherwise it will create a new WcCode.
- The Processing Method should be RG or FG.
The current/active rates will be ended with the day before the start date of the new rate from the file you are importing.

- Go to Import Export section from the Avionté Main Menu.
