    Great feature, however the BGL Migration Report Pack doesn't appear to exist?
    Can you please confirm?

  • Hey Christine
    You need to change the report pack under Reports - I only know because I did this a couple of weeks ago. When you choose the Migration Pack you can then download. Hope it helps - I can't log a support call at the moment.

  • I don't seem to have the Fund Transfer function in BGL. Do I have to enable this? (I'm logged in as an admin user.)

  • Hi Miranda Admin Users do not have any screen restrictions. Firstly double-check your user rights and once you have selected your fund, from the Main Toolbar navigate to Fund | Fund Transfers. If you're still having difficulties, please reach out to the BGL Support Team
