How to Use Business Watchlist RTE


This help center article will help you learn how to easily configure your Business Watchlist Report list source settings. For more information on how to use the Reports Template Editor overall, please see this help center article.

To access your Business Watchlist Report configurations, start by navigating to the Business Watchlist Report Template Editor (BWRTE) specifically. You can do this by hovering over the Reports section of your Dashboard, selecting templates, and clicking on the Watchlist template. You have now landed on BWRTE.


Configuration Summary

When you click on the configuration tab, you will find the following configurations.

  • Template name - this is the name of the template. You can change it from a standard name, to whatever makes most sense to your organization. You can do this simply by typing into the box with the name, and then selecting “Save Report Template” in the upper right hand corner.Screenshot_2022-11-22_at_8.32.41_PM.png
  • Source categories - We have the ability to specify the types of lists an organization can search against, including 100+ global sanction and warning lists.
    • Example: Corporation XYZ can search against all Sanction lists but not against any warning listsScreenshot_2022-11-22_at_8.48.05_PM.png

Name Match Requirements

Depending on your organization’s use case or needs, you may require either very strict or very liberal matching parameters.

Persona’s customization process is granular and detailed in order to allow our customers more control over what matches they receive, and how often they receive them (false positives).

Name matching for Watchlist has four options:

Exact: matches on exact name and AKAs in article or source.

Strict (Recommended): matches on exact name, allowing for subset name matching and initial matching.

Tolerant: allows for flexible matching inclusive of all settings. Allows room for typos.

Custom: set your own custom match profile.

For a deeper dive into what these options mean, and more definitions of terminology used, please see our Reports Name Match Requirements article.

Continuous Monitoring

When you click on the Continuous monitoring tab, you will see your current continuous monitoring settings, and the cadence that the continuous monitoring is set to. If you’d like to update your continuous monitoring settings, please contact Persona for assistance, as this is currently a view only feature.
