Note: With recent improvements to the Close Job function, which will automatically dispose of all non-salvage contents in iCat, the task of individually or bulk disposing of contents may be optional for your organization.

While the task is an administrative function, using the Close Job feature should not replace the requirement of physically finding and disposing of non-salvage contents in your possession associated with a particular job before closing the file/job.


To individually dispose of contents:

  1. Ensure you updated the <Approve for Disposal> checkbox in the respective insured's Job Dashboard to confirm you have documented the insured's authorization to dispose of contents.  

  2. Navigate to the Contents Production View and select the <Disposal> radio button.  This will filter all items for replacement (except those with sentimental or salvage value) that have the insured's approval to dispose of them.  

  3. You can further narrow the search results by Job, location, or any field, which helps you focus on what needs to be disposed of.  Doing this is helpful if you are doing this manually without a scanner.   Using a scanner is recommended as you will have an accurate representation of what was actually / physically disposed of.

  4. If you are doing this manually, to select all contents that match your filter/search results, you can select the checkbox beside both <Items With Locations> and <Items Without Locations> 

5. Select <Dispose> from the Action Menu. This will update the production status of these items as Disposed.
