Contribution Process Overview
When should our museum start to plan for our next year's submission?
How many works does each Member contribute?

Are there deadlines throughout the contribution cycle? What are they?
Is there a diagram which explains the Workflow process?

Are there tools to help us set up our AMICO submissions?

Select Contribution

What tasks do these departments need to perform regarding our list?

Export Contribution

Should we have one person taking care of all these tasks?
Once our museum exports our data for our contribution are we done?

What if we have error and warning messages after the Validation program has been run for our contribution?
What does AMICO check in the Validation process and what do Members need to check?
