Address lookup for questionnaire

We have introduced an address lookup for the questionnaire on the Q&A tab and in the Q&A editor of the Forms tab to help you reduce keystrokes. When you start typing something in one of the address fields, Appulate gives you a list of suggested options based on your current location. The addresses which match exactly the characters you’ve entered are displayed at the top of the list and the matching parts are highlighted. When you choose an address from the list, dependent fields are automatically populated with the respective values. For example, as shown in the figure below, if you choose “Linkous Drive” as the Street Address, Appulate will set the value of City to “Florissant”, the value of State to “MO”, and the value of Zip code to “63031”.

Signing multiple forms

We have fine-tuned the preliminary steps of the request to bind process: now you can have your agents sign more than one form. Your company defines the list of forms that have to be signed before the request to bind can be sent to you. Also, you can indicate signers for each form (the agent, the applicant or both) and provide a list of documents that have to be uploaded. Continue Reading

Changes in Appulate statuses

We have updated the system of Appulate statuses introduced earlier and added two new Record statuses: “Quote Prepared” and “Quote Released”.

The users of a market

  • see “Quote Prepared” when a quote document has been uploaded, generated, or received by this market but has not been sent to the agency. Earlier the Record status of “Quote in Progress” was shown in this case.
  • see “Quote Released” when a prepared quote document available to this market has been released, i.e. sent to the agency. Earlier the Record status of “Quoted” was shown in this case.

The users of an agency

  • see “Quote Prepared” when a quote document has been received by this agency. Earlier the Record status of “Quoted” was shown in this case.

Note: “Quote Released” is not available to agency users. “Quoted” is no longer used in Appulate. Continue Reading

Mark-all-No function

The “Mark-all-No” function, which many Appulate users find useful, is now represented as a button.

When you or your partners are filling out a questionnaire on the Q&A tab, in the Q&A editor of the Forms tab, or in any other form, the new Mark all “No” button can be used to answer “No” to all shown Yes/No questions at a time. You will find this button either on the toolbar if the open tab (section) has no subsections or in the upper-right corner of the open subsection. And thus it will affect all the Yes/No questions of this section or subsection, respectively. Continue Reading
