TG - Organisation Functionality

  • This article list all the functionalities available in TG and their uses.
  • Most functionality is enabled by default on a new partner account. 
  • New features/functionality is generally not automatically added to all organisations upon release. Please contact DM Support to enable functionality if you cannot view it.
  • Partners may wish to disable unused functionality on customer organisations in order to simplify the user interface - leaving only what is required for ease of use.
