Generate the Census
First, you'll log into your FormFire account using your username and password. Once in your account, you’ll see the Client Dashboard. Find the Client you’d like to quote Beam Dental for, open the orange context menu and select Generate Census.
Here, you’ll see two drop-down menus.
- In the first, select Quote Census.
- In the second, select Beam Dental Quote Census.
Then, select Download Census. An Excel census file will then download on your computer.
Now that the census is generated, select the Plan Rater tab to review. The following items should be filled in automatically:
- Client Zip
- Group State
- SIC Code
- EE (Employee) Count
The EE (Employee) Count comes from the total number of Employees in FormFire for the Client. If this section is not displaying the correct number, please check the Employee List page for this Client to see if all Employees have created their accounts online.
All available plans are listed on the Plan Rater tab. A cover page and additional SBC documents are available on the other tabs that you can add to the final proposal that you’ll create for your Client. To create the proposal, you can either print the specific tabs you want to include or save the specific tabs as a PDF. Make sure that you save the downloaded quote file to your computer. You'll need it for the enrollment!

After you’ve determined which Employees from the Client would like to enroll into the selected plan, it’s time to assign them. Starting from the Client Dashboard find the Client once more from your list. This time when you open the orange context menu, select Group Plan Assign.
When here, select the Dental tab. You’ll add the plan needed in this section.
