AMS will display the number of TCNs and pieces added.
In order for AMS to sort through the data on the OMC or RF tag for data pertaining to only your site you must first set up a “filter.” For CRPs, the Sitecode Table acts as the filter.

Note: Do not clean up any records until they are archived and backed up.
