1. From the SkySlope home page, click on Create Transaction.

First, you will be able to search for your property's address in the Search for Address window. Thanks to a recent update, creating your Transaction is now easier than ever before. Begin typing into the Address field, and you will see search results powered by Google. As search results come up, click on the best match for your property

If a correct match doesn't populate, or the property is a land listing that may not yet be "searchable", close out of the Search for Address window to enter the address manually.

 

2. After clicking on the best match for your property address, search results will populate. Depending on the information we are able to find, you will see a few different results that you can use to create your file. You may see:
-The property address found by Google
-The property information found by SkySlope
-MLS Search Results
-zipForm Search Results (if your account is integrated with zipForm)

For example, let's click on the MLS result to proceed with that information.

3. After clicking on the search result, the page will redirect to the Transaction Tab. On this tab, the required information is listed with red asterisk (*). Based on the information we are able to find, some of this information may already be filled out for you. Complete the required information, and then click on Next in the lower right corner.

Don't have a year built? Enter "0000". Also, if your Listing Expiration Date or List Price ever change, you can always come back to this page and update your information.

 

4. After clicking on Next, the Contacts Tab will populate.

There are 7 available contacts in a Transaction file, but depending on the file type, only a few are required. Fill out the required contact information that's listed in red, and click on Next to move forward to the next contact. When you're done with the contacts, click on Submit.

Use the Search Contacts field to fill in names of people added into the Account Directory, or previously entered into SkySlope files.

For Title/Escrow/Attorney, only one of those three contacts is required. Just fill out and save one, and click on Next to move to Agent on the Other Side.

 

5. After filling out all of the required contacts, you'll be taken to the Commission tab. Once again, fill out the required information, and then click on Submit in the upper right.

6. Once the Commission tab is completed, you'll be taken to the core of your file: the Checklist. This is where documents are submitted for admin/broker review.

What is a Checklist? It's a list of required documents that are decided by your broker based on the file type. The required documents need to be uploaded and attached to the Checklist in order for the file to be seen as complete and ready for closing. Here's an example of a Transaction Checklist:

Documents that are marked If Applicable only need to be uploaded if the particular document is relevant to the file you're creating. For example, a Lead Based Paint Disclosure may be marked as If Applicable, and would only need to be uploaded if the house was built pre-1978.

See a document that's marked as required that isn't relevant to the file? Leave an "n/a" comment for your admin to see so they can change the status of the Checklist item from Required to If Applicable.

 

Document Tab

The Document tab is the section of a property file where all documents are housed. This is a great place to store documents that are related to the file, but not listed on the Checklist. The Document tab can be used to forward documents to DigiSign, break-down large PDF packets into individual documents, and even send emails. 

 

Log Tab

The Log is where all action taken within a file is stored for compliance purposes. Whenever a change is made, a document is uploaded/unattached, or an email is sent from the file, that action is recorded on the Log. 

 

Tasks Tab

When using Tasks within SkySlope, all tasks assigned to a specific property file can be viewed and managed on the Tasks tab of that file. New tasks and email reminders can be added to help you stay on top of your deals.
