November 15 Update: Document Viewer Improvements and Additional Invoice Features

New E-recording Features

We’ve made a variety of customer-requested improvements to the Document Viewer.
The eraser shape when editing documents has been changed back to a square. When we upgraded to the non-Java Document Viewer, the eraser shape changed to a circle. Many of you told us you preferred the square so we’ve changed it back.

You’ll now see spinning circles when a document is loading. This lets you know that larger documents are still loading so you’re not wondering if it’s completed or not.

New Scanning Utility Bypasses Java Drama

If you’ve scanned documents directly into Simplifile, you may have encountered issues with Java or found that your favorite browsers (like Chrome and Microsoft Edge) no longer support it. Say goodbye to these frustrations! This week we’re beginning to roll out our new Simplifile Scanning Utility.

Our new utility completely replaces the previous Java applet. When it’s available to you, you’ll be presented with a page in Simplifile to download Simplifile Scanning, verify your scanners (they must be TWAIN-compatible), and get right back to work scanning within Simplifile. Plus, you’ll be upgraded to our Java-free document viewer as well. Thus, removing any tedious Java applets from your Simplifile experience.

October 4 Update: Add Title Companies to Loans, Preliminary Status Filter, and More

New Collaboration and Post Closing Features

Title companies can now be added to a loan.
In addition to lender and settlement assignments, title companies can now be assigned to a loan separately. The title administrator can then add individual title agents to the loan as well. This can be done from the “Loan Info” page and does not affect the status of a loan.

October 4 Update: Adding and Managing Counties is Now Faster, More Intuitive

New E-recording Features

We’ve simplified the Counties page.
Instead of showing you a long list of available counties when you launch the Counties page, you’ll now be presented with just the list of states currently on your list. You can expand each state to see the counties you’ve enabled. Once expanded, you can use Ctrl+f (or Command+f) to search within the page.

This helps with load times on slower Internet connections and saves you from having to scroll to the bottom of the page to see your list of enabled counties.
