2. Schedule training with Workamajig to review the workflow process that takes place on this side of the integration.

Review your CSI GlobalVcard Dashboard and Payment Center
The following image is just an example of what the CSI dashboard looks like.
- Check for errors and if needed, please contact your CSI rep to address any concerns with what you see here.
- The most common error you might encounter is the missing/remittance email that can appear in the CSI interface. This can be solved by adding an email address to the primary contact of the vendor record within Workamajig, but would only apply to future payments. You would still need to resolve the one(s) in the CSI interface.
- If you receive a red banner/error in the Workamajig interface at any time when you click View Batch, Add To Batch, or Publish Batch. Please read the error and handle accordingly. If you do not understand the error, or if the error is not legible, please email email@example.com with a screenshot of the error and what button you pressed.
- If you remove a payment from the Batch Screen in Workamajig. Be aware that the check number will increase by 1 when you re-add it.
- Payments that have been successfully sent over to CSI and have a Batch ID in Workamajig, cannot be resent. Even if you blank out the Check Number. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having an issue and need to get the data cleaned up on the Workamajig side.
- If a payment was sent in a batch, but never received on the CSI end, after you figure out the issue, you can blank out the Check ID of the payment in question and add to batch again.
