The Contracts & Grants Collection Activity document allows you to record each attempt at collecting a past due invoice. This document does not route and is used by the Tickler Report to help CGB Collectors manage overdue invoices. Collection Activity Type is associated with a Collection Event. Once a Collection Activity has been created, it can be edited using the Collection Event document.
Once a collection activity has been started for an Award, new events can be added by creating a new collection activity via the Tickler, Collection Activity Report, Contracts & Grants Aging or from the Contracts & Grants Collection Activity. New events cannot be created from the Collection Event lookup, events can only be edited from this lookup.
