Instructions for Use


Three new fields have now been added to your Encompass system. They are:

  1. CX.LOAN.SAVE
  2. CX.LOAN.OPEN
  3. CX.LOAN.CLOSE
You can use any three of these fields in a business rule trigger to do what you what when the loan is opened, right before the loan gets saved, or when the loan closes.

For example, lets save every time that someone pushes the loan save button, I want to change the first name of the borrower to "Mark". I would add a business rule and use "CX.LOAN.SAVE" as the field trigger. It would look something like this:

You must choose CX.LOAN.SAVE as the trigger field and say every time it equals "X". Now everytime the loan got saved the borrower's first name would be changed to "Mark". It's also important to note that this is a BEFORE SAVE event so that change you make will get saved with the loan.

You may also use CX.LOAN.OPEN the same way except this time the event happens when the user opens the loan.

You may also use CX.LOAN.CLOSE the same way, but it's important to note, you changes will not be saved with the loan if you use this one because the loan will have already saved. You can fire an alert box to the user on loan close, however, if you'd like to notify them of something on loan close.
