Today, NFA launched the NFA Dashboard, the new entryway to NFA's Online Registration System (ORS).
The NFA Dashboard is a single screen that summarizes all outstanding filing requirements so users can quickly see what is required and address open items. It replaces the former ORS home page. Authorized users can access the Dashboard by visiting NFA's home page and clicking "Login" in the ORS box. Users will login using their current ORS username and password.
In advance of the launch of the Dashboard, NFA hosted a Member webinar on February 25, 2016, to explain the functionality of the Dashboard, provide screenshots, and answer Member questions. Watch the archived version of the webinar.
The Dashboard is the first phase of a multi-year rebuild of ORS. ORS was originally launched in 2002. Although it has been updated regularly to address regulatory changes and user enhancements, the system itself uses the same underlying technology on which it was built. NFA is in the process of a multi-year undertaking to migrate this system to new technology. NFA staff collected feedback on ORS from various user groups, most notably NFA Members. This valuable feedback led to the NFA Dashboard and a number of system enhancements that will help improve usability and efficiency.
