Using the integration

Linking accounts with clients 


Select Black Diamond from the dropdown.  This presents the list of Black Diamond Portfolios and and of their earlier linkages.  

Note:  If Black Diamond is the only integration added to the Practifi system then the choice of Black Diamond as a dropdown choice on the Integrations tab will not appear.  The Black Diamond portfolios will appear immediately on the mapping panel without needing to specifically select Black Diamond.




To link a Black Diamond Portfolio to an existing Practifi Household click on the down arrow at the right of the row and select Edit, or the pencil icon


Search for the name of the Practifi Client you wish to associate with the Black Diamond Portfolio, then click Save to complete.  The system will do a search of potential matches as you type.



The Assets and Holding of the Black Diamond portfolio are now linked to the selected Practifi household, and will appear under the Financials tab.

  • Clicking on the down arrow at the right of the row and select Create New Client. or
