    Hello everyone,

    Thanks for taking the time to provide more detail on this request. We have another thread discussing this topic as well.  Between the two, we understand the request fully. We will continue to monitor this one as well as the corresponding thread for more "yes/up-votes"!

    Since we do not currently have a solution for this, you can always reach out to our rockstar support team who have tools outside of SkySlope to merge, split and help you with your documents. You can email them anytime at support@skyslope.com 

     

    Thanks,

    Jessey, SkySlope Product Manager

    YES! Please! Sometimes i need to add a signature page to a document. Sometimes that page needs to be put in the Middle of a document. Imagine an NHD that is 18 pages and the 3 page is the sig page. I would love to insert the fully executed sig page into the middle!!

    Hello Janelle and Gilmourlead,

    Buck, VP of Product here at SkySlope. Thank you for submitting a feature suggestions!

    This sounds like a few different use cases but both could be remedied with ability to combine docs. Janelle, it sounds like you are referring to a straight sequential combining of documents into one .pdf. While Gilmourlead is looking for a way to way to add and re-arrange. This could be resolved by splitting the docs with the current feature adding the signature page and then adding back in the pages that were split off. Thank you for your suggestion. We will monitor this one for more "yes/up-votes"!

    Yes and no, i am on board with Gilmourlead's idea - being able to clean up a document with replacing signed pages over blank ones. 

    What you are describing may be too many steps, i can tell you my agents won't go for that - especially the fact that they are just now getting the split feature figured out. My thought would be for it to work like adobe - where it shows all the pages, you can click and rearrange pages and pull in other pages into the same file. 

    Let me know if you need more input. 

     

    Thanks Janelle

    Thank you for your consideration. I currently use Adobe PDF DC, which allows me to combine docs. Sometimes I get the TDS sig page back (page 4) but not all the pages 1-3, so I can combine them that way. 

    This feature is not super important, but would be nice.

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    I just came across this suggestion and this would be SO immensely helpful. The inability to merge documents into one PDF, for reasons already described above, has been one of the biggest drawbacks of skyslope in comparison to other platforms I've used in the past. Please implement this, even if just as a basic merge function (although a full-blown rearrange function would be helpful too)!

    Edit: I see there is a similar thread found here. Are these upvotes being considered in their total?

    Thank you!

    Hi All,

    This is an interesting concept that we've been discussing internally. I'm going to combine this conversation with the comments in this request. (Thank you Ash for connecting the 2.)

    I'd like to get feedback from the group on a few things:

    - With editing and merging - more specifically around replacing signed pages over the blank pages. Are there instances where the signed contract would lose validity if edited in this way?

    - Are there specific points in the transaction that merging documents from a checklist for bulk download would be the most valuable?

    Thank you,

    - Megan, Forms Product Manager

    The main places I've encountered this are when a document is scanned and pages are out of order, or when someone submits a correction to 1 page in a multipage document, but sends only that single page. For example, if a 3 page document was missing initials to acknowledge a change on page 2, but only the updated page 2 was submitted rather than a full 3 page copy with the change. So in other platforms, I could split off pages 1 & 3 from the original document and merge those with the updated page 2 between them, so that I would have one clean, up-to-date document.

    For a bulk download merge, I could see that being useful for having a complete copy of the full contract at the end of a transaction, but that is overall much less of a pain point.

    Hi Ash,

    This feedback is helpful, thank you. You mentioned you've used other platforms that have the split and merge functionality. I've heard Adobe so far - any others we should be looking at?

    Thank you,

    - Megan, Forms Product Manager

    I can't believe you've had this issue for a year and it hasn't been addressed. Dotloop lets me save each doc as created,arrenge in the order I want them seen, then send all at one time
