Appraiser Tech Tip: Naming your website

|

You can’t have a website without a domain. Simply put, your “domain” is just a fancy word for the dot com name of your site. And when it comes to your XSites, it’s pretty simple to set up your domain name and get your business out on the web for potential clients to start viewing it.  

Tech Tip Special Edition: Add listings and rentals to the ERC and Small Income forms

|

If you've ever performed a drive-by inspection on a rental or listing, then you've probably experienced the same pain as many other appraisers.  You spend time jotting down inspections notes and quickly try to transition to taking pictures with your camera, all while trying to be discrete.  Fortunately, TOTAL for Mobile has alleviated this situation.  

You can now add listings and rentals to the ERC and Small Income forms.  In just a few clicks you can fill out information, take photos, and watch them appear on your map.  From the map, you'll be able to tell whether a photo has been taken of the listing, tap on it for directions, or jot down a quick note and be on your way.  

Tech Tip Special Edition: Note taking made easy

|

You're in the field and you notice some water damage to the interior wall of the bathroom.  The homeowner is standing inches away watching your every move.  You normally voice-record your notes for the sake of time, but with the zealous — maybe even overbearing — client nearby, that may be a little too risky.

Don't worry, we've got you covered.  TOTAL for Mobile offers several avenues for note-taking.  If voice recording isn't a viable option, try typing your notes real quick. Or, if typing on your mobile device slows you down too much, simply hit the notes tab and select the "draw" button.  It's quick, easy, and a life saver for moments like the all-too-relatable scenario above. 

TOTAL for Mobile gives you the freedom and peace of mind to adjust your workflow on the fly.  Watch this video below to see how.

Tech Tip:  Don't worry about accidentally deleting your inspection data

|

We've all been there — being mad at ourselves for deleting an important file.  This TOTAL for Mobile feature would come in handy when:

You have an early inspection, and your coffee hasn't kicked in yet.  You get distracted and accidentally delete a report you haven't synced to TOTAL.

You thought you wouldn't need the file anymore, but you over-estimated your judgement.  Now you want it back.

Appraisal Tech Tip:  Categorize your reports quicker and easier with color coding

|

New in TOTAL's Appraisal Desktop — We've added a categories option to help easily identify and group your reports.  Pick a color category for a group of related reports — such as waiting on homeowners, pending inspection, completed, in progress, etc. — to quickly see where your reports are in the process. This feature makes it easier to see each report's status and stay organized.  See how it works in the video below.
