New Ownership Registration or Update

 

To record the ownership, the new art owner will need to create an ownership registration record. The ownership record can be confidential or Private. Confidential records are tied to the Member Number and are accessible directly from the user's Art Management menu. This private record is independent and is not associated with the  Member record (this makes the record more private since it is not listed in the owner membership record). The private ownership record can only be established from the Confidential record, so the Confidential needs to be setup first.
