Keep your SSI ARM from getting arthritis!
Archiving ARM Files
As daily, monthly and yearly processes are
performed, ARM reports under each button will
increase, and can eventually get a bit unwieldy
to find. So…SSI recommends a periodic
Archive process for organization and easier
Archiving will sub-categorize your ARM reports
by year and will use the PHYSICALMM/DD/YYYY of
the ARM report within the program/module. All
ARM reports generated in every year can be
archived – ex: 2015, 2016, 2017, etc. – as far
back as your ARM reports go!
All reports with an ARM date of 12/31/2020 are
moved to an
Archived directory and
sub-divided by module (AP, APC, AR, RP, etc.)
then button – AP03,AR03. RP05, etc.
As an example: the 12/31/2020 ARM reports for
AP03 audits will be found in archive hierarchy
How do your retrieve reports that have been
Good question and SSI has the EZ answer. It’s much
faster and much more efficient than searching
through years and years of ARM reports in your
regular ARM directory.
On your main SSI screen – see the little
gray safe icon on the
upper right? That icon directs you to
Archive ARM files.
Look for the Archive directory– it will normally
display at the top. Double click to see all
Archived years - named as ARCYEARDATEMONTH. Then
a simple double-click displays all of your
historical ARM reports.
Refer to SSI’s On-Line Help for instructions on
Archiving ARM Files. Instructions for archiving
the prior year can also be found on SSI’s
Year-End checklist as a reminder.
It’s easy to do and even if you’ve never
archived before – you can still do it by year.
Just one more way to keep you running LEAN and
MEAN. Efficient and time-saving is the name of
the game for SSI!
