Allocation over multiple sub accounts using Interactive Brokers platform

Is anyone allocating orders over multiple sub accounts using NT 7 through IB Interactive Brokers platform ?
I have an advisor account with 10 sub accounts at IB, they say it is possible to allocate, and NT says they don't support allocation.
I find it hard to believe a robust platform like NT does not support allocation over multiple sub accounts.

Please Help.

You can check with @dekelly but I'm pretty sure NT does not support it.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Q: Is Ninja Trader compatible with IBís Financial Advisor and Friends & Family account type?
A: Yes, although not with the full order allocation functionality provided directly through the TWS. While Ninja Trader can be used to submit orders for a client sub-account through the Advisor master account, it does not allow for a single order to be allocated to more than one sub-account. This is in contrast to the TWS user interface which provides for multi-client trade allocations from a single order (through the Account Group or Allocation Profile options).

So if you mean you want to allocate ONE order over multiple accounts using Ninja Trader, it is not supported. But you can do it directly through TWS.
