Advantage Online Documentation

The Advantage Documentation Website is designed to provide users with step by step instructions for Advantage navigation and documentation processing. The website also provides links to related business process and policy information.

Advantage WebCT Vista Course

The Advantage web course is designed to provide users with a basic understanding of Advantage navigation, accounting concepts and document processing. Training materials include voice enhanced Power Point tutorials and document processing video demonstration. The Power Point tutorials provide background information for the document processing demonstration videos. As such, it is recommended that users complete the Power Point tutorials before viewing the corresponding document processing video (printable versions of the power point documents can be found below).

Self-Assessment Quizzes
Users are required to complete self-assessment quizzes in order for their security to be activated. The self-assessment quizzes can be taken multiple times, but users must answer 4 of the 5 questions correctly to pass the quiz. All users must pass the Navigation and Accounting quizzes in order to move on to the document processing quizzes. Users only need to pass the document processing quizzes for the documents to which they are requesting document security.
