Portfolio Groups - Unassign Account When Moving Households

Coming Soon: HiddenLevers in Portfolio View

Portfolio View - Product and Benchmark Colors

If any graphs in the portfolio view are grouped by Product or have a Benchmark grouping, the colors assigned to these in their respective applications will now reflect in the Portfolio View.

Quarter End Dashboards Updates

We have added two audit tasks to the Quarter End Dashboard. The first is for sleeve users to review custodial account balances and will populate if the database entity option ‘Sleeve Trading’ is enabled. 

The 2nd task is for a DST override. If your firm has DST as a download source and active DST accounts, this task will populate on your QE Dashboard. This allows your firm to proceed with QE Billing and Reporting after your core reconciliation has been completed. If the user chooses to proceed without quarter end DST reconciliation complete, the user will need to agree to a legal disclaimer and then will be able to proceed with dashboard completion.

How to get there: Orion Connect > Quarter End Dashboard
Portfolio View - Entities Displayed Setting

In the Portfolio View settings, we have modified the current toggle to disable registrations in the Investment Tree. Now, users will have the option to show both Registrations and Accounts in the tree or only Registrations or only Accounts.

Client Experience - Representative Access

Representative level users will now have the ability to adjust settings they have been given access to in the Client Experience app. These users will only have access to the Settings portion which is now tied to the privilege ‘Client Portal Admin’.

Portfolio View - Custodian and Fund Family Groupings

Model Tolerance Graph

How to get there: Orion Connect > Portfolio View > Allocation > Target Comparison > Model Tolerance card
Target Comparison Detail Updates

We have made a few adjustments to the target comparison detail card in the Portfolio View. You are now able to easily identify assets excluded from rebalance in the grid as they will be italicized.

We have developed the ability to create multiple homepage dashboards to toggle between. This feature allows firm admins to tailor the homepage experience for each role at the firm. The access for the user depends on the rights given to them in their role. With the new privileges we have created for this feature, firm admins are able to provide a range of access to each role. Please review our comprehensive Orion Support document ‘Orion Dashboard: Customizing and Sharing Dashboards’ to learn how to customize this experience for your users.

Planning Tab in Portfolio View

Users who are not currently utilizing Orion Planning asked that we disable the Planning tab in the Portfolio View. After this release, if you do not have the Advizr privilege enabled in your role, the Planning tab will be off by default. If you would like to turn the Planning tab back on, you can do so in your Portfolio View settings. If the setting for the Planning tab is turned on, and the privilege is not enabled in your role, there will be a message in the cards stating the Advizr privilege is needed for data to populate.

Homepage/Portfolio View - No Data Message

When there is no data to display on a card for a given time period, we will now display an icon with the message “No data to display”. This will better help our users determine if there is an issue with the card or if there is truly no data returning for the given timeframe.

AUM Summary Card

Homepage Rep Filtering

As an advisor-level user, the homepage dashboard is able to be viewed in the context of the entire firm or filtered by a representative user. Prior to this development, when applying a rep filter, it would be removed when changing applications or the next time a user logged in. We have made it so this filter sticks until removed manually.
