Allow Users to Re-distribute ARB Value

When a property is set to the ARB value method, certain changes could affect the ARB value. I.E. the property is set to Cost Value method, an ARB Value displays from previously set appr_method, land is copied, and then recalculate, and the ARB Value will change.

To allow clients to manage these changes, the following have been added. PACS should not modify or recalculate the ARB Value displayed on a property unless the user invokes the new functionality described below.

An optional notification to warn a user when making changes to a property in either a supplemented certified year or the uncertified year, where the origin property has appr_method set to ARB Value has been added.

The warning will only display if the system setting is configured to display.

The warning will display:

I.E. Remove Improvement

The re-distribute functionality is controlled by a NEW system setting:

Tools > ARB Maintenance > System Settings…
