    1. Verify with Feeding America that the import process has been run to populate the UNC County Codes.
    2. UNC County Codes can be accessed by selecting “Search” from the Dynamics 365 Business Central Banner and entering “UNC Counties” in “Tell me what you want to do” then selecting “UNC Counties” from the results in the Go to Pages and Tasks section OR by selecting the “UNC Counties” menu action (if present) from your Role Center home page.

  

 

  1. Link the FBC County Code to the appropriate UNC County FIPS Code.
    1. FBC County Codes can be accessed by selecting “Search” from the Dynamics 365 Business Central Banner and entering “FBC County” in “Tell me what you want to do” then selecting “FBC County” from the results in the Go to Pages and Tasks section OR by selecting the “FBC County” menu action (if present) from your Role Center home page.
    2. For each FBC County Code listed, select the appropriate UNC County FIPS Code from the edit assist list or enter it manually.

  

  

  1. Mobile Pantry Drops Indicator.
  1. An indicator has been added to the Agency Card, Information Tab to designate if Agency Orders from the Agency should be considered.
  2. The Agency List can be accessed by selecting “Search” from the Dynamics 365 Business Central Banner and entering “Agencies” in “Tell me what you want to do” then selecting “Agencies” from the results in the Go to Pages and Tasks section OR by selecting the “Agencies” menu action (if present) from your Role Center home page.

  


  1. If the Mobile Pantry indicator on the Agency Card is selected, the user will be prompted with the following:

  

 

A “Yes” answer will set the Mobile Pantry indicator on the Agency Card and on all posted Agency Orders for that Agency. The Mobile Pantry Drop indicator will also be defaulted to “Yes” for any new Agency Orders for this Agency.


A “No” answer will set the Mobile Pantry indicator on the Agency Card and the Mobile Pantry Drop indicator will be defaulted to “Yes” for any new Agency Orders for this Agency. No existing transactions will be updated.


Note: While the Mobile Pantry indicator will be defaulted to “Yes” on any new Agency Orders, the indicator can be set to “No” on an Agency Order if that specific Agency Order is not a Mobile Panty Drop.
