Future License/Registration


There may be occasions where an animal is adopted but cannot be licensed/registered immediately (e.g. puppies/kittens sold via off-site pet shops may be too young for pre-requisites). For this scenario, we offer "future licensing". 


Future licensing allows you to set up the license/registration that the pet will need once it becomes eligible and acts as a reminder to the new owner to ensure the pet is licensed/registered as appropriate. 


NOTE: Future Licensing is only available to External Issuers. 


Set up:

The first thing you need to do is set up an External Issuer. To do that, see our help docs here and here

When setting up your External Issuer, remember to mark them "Yes" for "Is issuing future licenses".
