How do I add a state to a certificate in ECMS?


You need to add a state to an existing exemption certificate in the admin console.

  • Go to Organization > click icon under Exemption
  • Pull up the certificate (search by customer name, customer code, or certificate ID)
  • Review: Is the Applied checkbox (on the far right) checked?
    • If so > Open certificate > click Revoke and Copy
    • If not > Open Certificate > click Edit
  • Under "Certificate Information" click the green + Add button > add the state, filling all fields > click the green Save button 
  • Repeat until every state is completed
  • Click Save at bottom


Note: If error appears when clicking save, you can remove the state where the exemption would not apply or change the exemption reason.
