Two-factor authentication

Appulate introduces two-factor authentication (2FA) to strengthen the protection of your account from unauthorized access. 2FA means that besides your login and password you can use a one-time verification code sent to your cell phone number to confirm your identity when signing in to Appulate.

Filtering out non-required questions

When you work with a questionnaire on the Q&A tab, you can hide all optional and answered questions so as to focus your attention only on the questions you must answer to be allowed to make a submission.

The required and unanswered questions are marked with an asterisk in a questionnaire; the number of such questions is also shown within each respective questionnaire tab.

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”.

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
