Welcome to SkySlope! Here at Support, we are your number one resource and we live to answer your questions. In SkySlope, you'll need to create Listing files, and cancel and convert them; you'll need to attach and remove items from your checklists; you'll need to send and receive emails; and hopefully take advantage of versatile and convenient DigiSign feature. So we've gathered the most important "Get Started with SkySlope" guides, so all of the basics are right at your fingertips.

 


 

Create a Listing: You'll need to create a Listing within SkySlope when you're representing the seller or landlord of a property that is for sale or for lease. When you're creating your Listing, you will input some basic information (such as the listing & listing expiration dates, sale price, seller's name(s) and contact information). After you've submitted this information, you'll be taken to the Checklist for that file.

Each file has its own Checklist, which is a list of documents that your office has deemed pertinent to the type of file you’re creating (which is based off the Checklist Type you select on the first page of creating your Listing, such as “lease” or “listing”). The documents on the Checklist that are listed as Required have to be uploaded and submitted for review before you’re able to “Accept a Contract” within SkySlope, and convert your Listing file into a Transaction file that your admins can close out. This guide will show you how to create a Listing.

Create a Transaction: You’ll need to create a Transaction within SkySlope when you’re representing the buyer or tenant of a property. When creating your Transaction, you will input some basic information (such as the acceptance date, agreed price, your buyer’s name and contact information, and commission information). Once you’ve submitted this information, you’ll be taken to the Checklist for that file.

Each file has its own Checklist, which is a list of documents that your office has deemed pertinent to the type of file you’re creating (which is based off the Checklist Type you select on the first page of creating your Transaction, such as “lease” or “traditional sale”). The documents on the Checklist that are listed as Required have to be uploaded and submitted for review before your office is able to close our SkySlope Transaction file. The guide below will show you how to create a Transaction.

Convert a Listing: Once you’ve created a Listing in SkySlope and your sellers have accepted an offer on the property, it’s time to convert your Listing into a Transaction. You have to convert your Listing into a Transaction for your office to be able to close your SkySlope file at Close of Escrow. Take a look to see how to properly convert your file.

Cancel Transaction and Re-Activate Listing: When you’re representing the seller, sometimes the buyer backs out and you need to cancel the Transaction file. However, since your Listing is still active, we don’t want to cancel the whole file. In this case, what we want to do is cancel the Transaction file and reactivate the Listing file. This will allow us to accept a few offer on the property. This guide will show you how to do just that.

Withdraw a Listing: If you’ve created a Listing within SkySlope that didn’t sell and your sellers didn’t renew the Listing Agreement, most likely you will need to withdraw your Listing. When you withdraw your Listing, it will be moved to a “cancelled pending approval” status, which means you’re waiting for an admin to approve the cancellation and move it into the Cancelled Contracts section of SkySlope. This guide will show you how to withdraw your Listing.

Cancel a Transaction: Sometimes, deals fall through. Buyers back out. When this happens, you’re going to want to cancel your Transaction. The guide below will show you how to cancel your SkySlope transaction.

Split & Assign: Sometimes you’ll end up with large packets of documents that are all in a single PDF that need to be split into smaller PDFs and placed on the Checklist. For example, you sent your Listing Agreement, Seller’s Disclosures, and Lead Based Paint Disclosure all in the same DigiSign envelope to be signed. When it’s signed, they’ll all come back as one PDF, but those three documents all have different spots on the checklist. You can use our Split & Assign feature to split them up and assign them directly on the Checklist. Keep reading to learn how.
