sureclose: Even Hurricane Ike can't stop us - 09/15/08 01:36 AM
I am constantly asked about the security and stability of SureClose.  Of course this should be a concern.  These real estate transactions are your business, your livelihood.  Well for those of you that don't know, our headquarters are in Houston.  Needless to say, Friday night was rough to say the least.  Hurricane Ike plowed right over our Houston campus.
On Thursday afternoon, we secured our offices in preparation for the worst.  Monitors and equipment were moved to center rooms and under desks.  Papers and loose articles were locked away in drawers and cabinets.  … (9 comments)

sureclose: SureClose Helpful Hint for Today (Re-templating) - 07/30/08 02:24 AM
The ability to re-template a file is a great feature.  If you open a file withing SureClose and later realize that you have created it using an incorrect template, you can re-template your existing file with the correct template without having to delete your file and start over.  Keep in mind that re-templating is like wiping the slate clean and starting over, so any stored information in the section of your file that you decide to re-template will be lost.
Here are a few important specifics to be aware of when re-templating:
If you choose to re-template your document page, any documents that … (2 comments)

sureclose: SureClose Helpful Hint for Today (Beware of Deleting Roles with Auto-Notifications) - 07/18/08 08:04 AM
If you are taking advantage of the auto-notification feature in SureClose, you will want to read this very important tip.  When notifications are established on the template level, they are assigned to the recipient role.  When a file is created and the contact that is filling that role within the transaction is added, the system then attaches those notifications to the appropriate contact.  If that contact is deleted from the file thereby deleting the role, the notifications will be cancelled.  Now, if you add a new contact to that role, they will not receive notifications.  Why?  Well, the damage has already … (1 comments)

sureclose: SureClose Helpful Hint for Today (Sending Text Messages from SureClose) - 07/17/08 07:03 AM
One of the most frequent questions I am asked is, "Can I access SureClose on my smart phone?".  The quick and easy answer would be, "no", but lets explore this for a moment.  What kind of access would be most beneficial on your phone?  You've got a pretty small screen that you are dealing with.  Would you really want to try and login and navigate through the whole transaction management platform on your phone?  How would you even be able to see documents effectively?  I would think that what you really want and need while out in the field are updates on … (6 comments)
