Automations: Exit Conditions

Provides the ability to create rules that instruct automations on when a contact should no longer be a part of the automation's workflow and remove them before the automations completed the remaining actions. This functionality is particularly crucial for long-term automations.

Example: a lead engagement automation that consistently engages with leads over time, but once a lead responds back, there is no longer a business necessity to continue engaging them.

Speed Improvements

Communications Page

The communications page should be loading much more quickly now (less than 3 seconds). Upon subsequent openings of the page, it is substantially faster.

Expand List Loading Capabilities

There are a number of places in the app where we search an entire list of contacts or transactions. This fix greatly increases the speed in which these lists are loaded and now provides the ability to search on these fields, including:

  • Tasks

  • Contact details page
  • Selecting a contact or transaction’s status

Bug Fixes

Incorrect field mapping has been fixed:

  • Estimated Closing Date (previously mapped from Borrower Estimated Closing Date)
  • Lock Date (previously used the loans creation date)

Encompass: Retry on Create/Update Failure

If we hit Encompass concurrency limits, causing a transaction not to be created or update, we now put it in a queue to retry later.

Unclickable Contacts from Encompass (missing First and Last Name) 

We have fixed the issue that allowed contacts to be created via Encompass without a First and Last Name (user could not access contact details pages for these contacts).  Contacts will not be created if their First and Last Name is missing.

2.21.0 - May 19th, 2023

New Features

Custom Fields - Both Contact and Transaction-based

With the help of custom fields, you can now customize the CRM to capture the most important data needed to convert more loans and save them time in the process.

We support both contact-based and transaction-based custom fields. Either one of these can have text, numeric or date-based fields - the possibilities for customization are virtually endless!

We also support using custom field values as merge fields in outgoing communications, so the messages sent can feel unique based on their specific preferences and style.

Custom fields are accessed under the Team Settings drawer and can be added with a few clicks - no need for reaching out to our support team or involving a developer.

Once there, users can add custom fields to appear on Contacts or Transactions.

In the future, custom fields will also be able to:

  • Rearrange them in the order that users desire after they are initially created
  • Import custom fields via CSV
  • Use custom fields in conditional triggers within automations

Show eligible number of records in an automation

When creating a new automation, you will now see the number of eligible contacts (or transactions, when using a transaction-based automation). This will make it clear how many records will receive communications or other actions set up in the automation when the automation is enabled and the setting to “enroll existing records” is also enabled.

Bug Fixes

We now have a search component that dramatically decreases the load times for searching through large lists of contacts - both adding a related contact and adding an associated contact to a task are done quickly and easily.
