PCR 236 – Duplicate Survivorship Prioritization Alignment

When two or more records are identified as duplicates, AGIIS uses a set of survivorship prioritization rules that determine a surviving record. At a subscriber's request, and approved by the AGIIS Directory Oversight Committee, AGIIS Subset Count was moved higher in the prioritization list. This will help prevent entities in more subscriber subsets from being inactivated.

PCR 237 - Add Non-North American Subscribers Functionality

As a member benefit of AgGateway, companies receive a free Search/View subscription to AGIIS. Now that AgGateway is a global organization, members outside of North America have expressed interest in AGIIS and this member benefit. This enhancement provides AGIIS Directory Administrators the ability to set up subscriber records using an address outside of North America.

January 23, 2021 — Data Privacy Rules – PCR #233

AGIIS was enhanced over the weekend to help subscribers comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act. If your organization is notified by one of your customers that they no longer want their personal information shared with a third party, AGIIS in this instance, you can now remove the entity from your subset due to data privacy reasons.

Removing an entity from your subset due to data privacy will prevent any information flowing back to your organization through an AGIIS update extract. The entity will remain in AGIIS and is still viewable, however a warning message is displayed that reads, "This entity was disabled for data privacy reasons on Jan 22, 2021", for example.

This enhancement accommodates a reinstatement process allowing subscribers to add the entity back to their subset, and includes an automated email notification to AGIIS primary and secondary contacts when this occurs.

To remove an entity from your subset for data privacy, perform an entity search. From the Entity View page, click on the Remove from Subset for Data Privacy button as shown below.


 

Once the entity is removed for data privacy, the following message is displayed.

 

Now, if a user in your organization performs a search on this entity, the following message will appear that alerts them that the entity was previously removed from your subset due to data privacy reasons.

If the data privacy designation was applied in error, or otherwise needs to be removed, simply click on the Remove Data Privacy button as shown below. Doing this will generate a confirmation email to your AGIIS primary and secondary contacts. The email will provide the GLN, Entity Name, and the AGIIS user ID that removed the data privacy designation. Once the data privacy designation is removed, simply add the entity to your subset, as normal. Removing the data privacy designation will not automatically add the entity to your subset.

This enhancement also includes on-demand reporting that is only available to the AGIIS Directory Administrator. The reporting captures information about entities that are marked for data privacy (GLN and Entity Name), the subscriber, user ID and date. The same information is also captured when the data privacy designation is removed. This report can be made available to subscribers upon request.

If you have questions regarding this enhancement, please contact us at Member.Services@AgGateway.org or at +1 (866) 251-8618.
