One of the most helpful shortcuts in TOTAL Sketch is using the CTRL and arrow keys to access pop points. Many appraisers use pop points for "squaring off" a drawing, but they can also be used to "pop" interior walls directly over to a wall, without having to measure, estimate, or use the arrow key fifteen times. This keystroke shaves minutes of your sketches.
When you go out on an inspection it can sometimes be a hassle making sure you've gathered all the data you need, and even more of a pain sifting through things you don't need.
With Critical Items, focus on the fields you want during the inspection. It replaces your paper checklist with a single screen where the most relevant fields are displayed, making it easier to collect property information. In fact, it's better since it also allows you to organize the fields so you don't skip something on accident.

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.
