Looking to manually import portfolios from Albridge into Nitrogen? Here's how.
Your Albridge account and Nitrogen can be integrated, allowing you to link your Albridge accounts to Nitrogen client profiles and sync your custodial data to Nitrogen.
Note: This integration is only available for Applink partners.
Contact your relationship manager at Albridge and let them know you would like to integrate with Nitrogen. You can tell them that Nitrogen has made the partner user ID (PUID) the same as your Nitrogen email address.
If you are affiliated with a Broker Dealer: You need to contact your home office and coordinate with them to have the integration turned on for you. Here is what you need to tell them — Albridge has a tool, AWN — the admin tool for AVN where they match partner user id with Albridge user id. They need to make the provider user id (PUID) to be the advisor's Nitrogen email address. An Albridge PUID must be 32 characters or less. If an advisor's email address is longer than 32 characters, use only the first 32.
Your Nitrogen email address is often lowercase characters and this must reflect at your home office too when setting up your integration.
If your username in Nitrogen is set up as firstname.lastname@example.org, your PUID can't reflect as Test.Advisor@bestfirm.com.
At this point, you will need to establish the integration:
- Log in to Nitrogen and navigate to Menu ≡ (top right of your screen) -> Settings - > Integrations.
- Choose Albridge.
- Click CONNECT.
Synchronizing Albridge and Nitrogen Data
For Nitrogen customers, data from Albridge is synced on a regular basis. Each time you log in to Nitrogen, you should see the client's up-to-date holdings in that client's current portfolio.
Creating a Nitrogen Client Profile From an Albridge Account
From the Nitrogen main page, click "Add New Client" above the search bar. Make sure you see the Albridge logo and that it is checked and then type in the client's name—in full or part—and Nitrogen will populate the matching names for you to choose from. Click on the client you want and a profile will be created in Nitrogen.
Linking an Existing Nitrogen Client to an Albridge Account
If your Nitrogen and Albridge accounts are linked, and you already have a client profile in Nitrogen, open the client profile and click on Client Actions -> Integrations on the upper right:
From here, you can control which Albridge accounts are linked to this Nitrogen client profile. If you link multiple Albridge accounts, Nitrogen will sync and combine all of the holdings into one active portfolio.
I'm excited to link my Albridge and Nitrogen accounts—how do I do that?
In Nitrogen, click on Menu -> Settings and then select Integrations. From there, select Albridge. It's as simple as that.
What if I have two Nitrogen client profiles and two Albridge accounts, and I want them all together?
Choose which Nitrogen client profile you'd like to keep (preferably the profile with a client verified Risk Number ®). Delete the other one. Then, open the remaining client profile, click the Client Actions button and then "Integrations". Search the client as you would in the above section on "Linking an Existing Nitrogen Client" and select them. The holdings for both contacts will then resync into the active portfolio in Nitrogen.
