Tips on how to use MM to complete the Form 80 when recording an client or applicant's extensive address, travel and/or employment history.

The Department of Home Affairs' Form 80 has a limit to 5 rows when asking about address, travel, education and employment history. The majority of our clients will have more that 5 entries for each field. Please see below an example of how MM can assist you to navigate this issue when preparing your client's Form 80.

The information in these fields can be exported in an excel spreadsheet, converted to PDF and then referenced in the Form 80. 

Address History example – 

The address history for the applicant is recorded in the Applicants > Addresses tab. To generate the excel spreadsheet, press the excel icon (circled in red below) in the bottom right-hand corner of the grid.

**Please note that we have used demo data to demonstrate this process**

The information will then open in an excel spreadsheet. 

Save the document (SPON0001- Address History - SURNAME, Initial) to the client’s file.

Convert the document to a PDF document

In the Documents > Letters Out folder and press the Reconcile button in the top right-hand corner (circled below in red) to refresh the document collation.

The excel document will then be in black. Right-click on the excel document and select Convert to PDF in the drop-down list.

MM will then create a PDF version in the same folder for you to send to your client for review and upload to the IMMI account when Form 80 is provided.
