Loan Portfolio

NLS has 100 user-defined fields available for use on every Loan. There are 50 on each of two forms: Loan Detail 1 and Loan Detail 2.

Each Loan is placed into one of your Loan Portfolios. To add a new loan portfolio, click Add Add and enter the portfolio code and description for the new loan portfolio.

If you do not configure any new loan portfolios, all loans will exist in a portfolio called <DEFAULT>.

Each portfolio has its own unique configuration for the 100 Loan User-Defined Fields. The label and type of each user-defined field is defined in the Loan Portfolio sub-category under Loan Setup.

Loan Detail 1 and Loan Detail 2 tabs allow you to select on which of the two forms you wish to configure your user-defined fields.
Script tab allows you to program Visual Basic code that will be activated by certain triggers associated with the loans in the portfolio. See the section on Scripting for more information.

On the grid, you can modify the label, set the data type from the drop down list, set a default value, disable a field, make a field required, hide a field, make a field read only, set a field to allow mixed case, and access the advanced properties of the field.

Options Tab

Hide Field

The Entity and Tax ID fields may be hidden on all loans that are in this loan Portfolio.

Hide Tab

Selecting this option next to the name of one of the standard tabs on the Loan will hide that tab for all loans that are set to this contact type.

Enable Auto Numbering

If Enable Auto Numbering is selected, you may set the auto numbering to be keyed to the reference number of the loan, or to a key that you set, which will iterate as each loan is added.


NLS 5.9 and later

Branch number and contact number may be included in the loan number by including a {B1} macro for branch or {CN} macro for contact number. These can be added to the mask by right clicking in the Mask field and selecting the appropriate macro from the list.

The mask is formatted as follows: aaa%n#dbbb


aaa = a string of characters to be placed at the beginning of the loan number

% = the actual character “%” sets off the starting string from what follows

n = any single character after “%” to designate which character will be used to pad the number (refno or key)

# = a number which indicates how many digits to pad

d = the actual character “d” indicates where the refno or key is to go, and it is padded based on the number which proceeds it and the character proceeding that number

bbb = a string of characters to be placed at the end of the loan number


If the mask were set to THX%05d-R2D2 and the current key was 1138, then the next loan number would be THX01138-R2D2.

Keep Original Loan Number During Restructure

When this option is selected the new restructured loan will use the loan number of the original loan while the original loan will have a “-1” appended to its loan number. During restructuring, the loan number field will be read only and cannot be edited.

Class 1 Label and Class 2 Label

The Class 1 label and Class 2 label fields allows for the customization of the class labels. By default, the fields are labeled Class 1 and Class 2. Simply type in a new label and the new label will be used where loan classes are displayed for the selected loan portfolio. This only changes the label names as displayed and does not affect the actual loan classes as configured in the loan class setup.

Shows the default Class 1 and Class 2 labels for the default loan portfolio on a loan view.
