August 9 Update: Quicker Loan Creation and Search, New Lender Assignments, and Upload More Document Types

We’ve made loan creation quicker and easier.
Manually creating loans within Simplifile Collaboration is now improved. When you click “Create Loan,” you’ll now see a new prompt screen with easier data entry and fewer fields. Applying templates is now simpler too, as you’ll only see templates based on the “Purpose” and “State” selected. You can still easily upload your MISMO 3.3 loan information from the top right.

July 11 Update: Faster Loan Estimate Fee Setup and Simplifying Templates

New Collaboration and Post Closing Features

Loan template updates prevent fees from being overwritten and causing confusion.
Lenders are now restricted from applying a template to a loan of a different type. This prevents fees being overwritten by changing the current loan to a different type with different fees. For example, you won’t be able to change a Refinance loan to a Purchase loan. This change counters mistakes and confusion.
