- Requests: A list of all digital FINRA requests and work due will be consolidated in a single place—with the ability to save filtered and sorted views.

- Reports: A new dynamic and customized reporting capability will allow you to create, save and export your registered individual and branch information. Learn more about FINRA Gateway Reports.
- Support: Have issues along the way? Quickly submit your support issues online through the system rather than on the phone.
- Quick Links: Direct links back to the ‘Classic’ FINRA applications and features you are accustomed to using, enabling you to transition to the new features on your timeline.
- Data Entry/Filings: Starting with the enhanced U4 experience, data entry will be made easier with a more user friendly and streamlined experience.
- Recently Viewed: A record of historic places you have visited to make it easier to get back to what you were doing.
- Admin: Users now have the ability to control both user and firm settings in one easy to find location.
- Contacts: Quickly get in contact with someone at FINRA who knows your firm, Risk Monitoring Analyst (RMA), Risk Monitoring Director (RMD) and Single Point of Accountability (SPOA). FINRA Contact System contacts coming in June. Learn more about FINRA Gateway Contacts.
