THE SMP SETUP:

It all begins with the SMP setup found in the Cloud navigation menu under Configuration>ACA Setup>Standard Measurement Period.  If you are new to the solution, you will need to use the New Schedule entry window.  We usually use Standard SMP 1 as the entry, then Save.  For those that have already setup your schedule, it is found in the Schedule ID window.  Every year you will need to update your period by clicking on ADD NEW PERIOD on the big blue line.

THE REPORT:

To run the SMP Eligibility Report you will go to Alerts and Reports>ACA Reports>Eligibility>Standard Measurement Period Analysis on the main Cloud navigation menu.  This report is designed to be run once per year at the beginning of your open enrollment period (Administrative Period).
