Summary: This article will describe how to navigate the global list of ACC (ARC) Types and Association level lists of ACC (ARC) Types.
- Navigate the global list of ARC Types
- Navigate the Association level list of ARC Types
- Find and add unused ARC Types for applicable Associations
- Add Association-specific rules and regulations to Letter Descriptions
- Add a new ARC Type to an Association
Begin exploring the global list for ARC Types by hovering your cursor over the Settings menu and selecting ARC Types. When a new ARC Type is added on this screen and marked Default it will be available in all Associations.
In the example above, Antennas are marked as Default, so that ARC Type is available in all Associations. ACC Types not marked as "default, such as Arbors & Pergolas in the above example, are not available in all Associations.
This and other unused ARC Types for an Association are found by hovering your cursor over the Associations menu and selecting ARC Types. From here, click on the Unused ARC Types button. In our example, Arbors & Pergolas can be found on the list for this Association. By clicking the Use button, it can be added as an ARC Type to the applicable Association.
To view the ARC Types available for the Association, click on the Association ARC Types button. If there is an ARC Type that does not apply to the Association that is selected, mark the item as Not Used then click to Save changes, and the ARC Type will then be moved to the UnUsed ARC Types screen and used again if needed later.
To add Association-specific rules and regulations for the ARC Types, just click and start typing in the Letter Description Field. After typing in the description, be sure to click 'Save Changes' in the top left of the screen. Note: this field can be tagged in the ARC Letter Templates.
Keep in mind that Homeowners submit ARC requests through the Homeowners Portal by selecting any ARC Type from the drop down menu on the ARC Request screen. This list is sourced from the Association ARC Types.
If the ARC Type needed is not on the Association ARC Type list, click on the UnUsed ARC Types button to look for the item (as described previously). If the item is not on the UnUsed ARC Types screen, click the New ACC Type button to add it.
If adding the New ACC Type for just one Association, do not mark the Default box, and do not enter the Letter Description on this screen.
Instead, once the New ACC Type is added on the UnUsed ARC Types screen, click the Used button (as previously described). The New ACC Type will be moved to the Association ARC Type list. At this point, the Association specific Letter Description can be added, as previously described. Be sure to click Save changes in order to save the changes you make.
