Cataloging Your Appraisal
Once we get the customized information in we can begin work on our appraisal. In ABP cataloging the information, and creating the actual appraisal document are two different parts in the process. We have several different ways to enter in this information, and several guides to help with the process. To see our list of guides on cataloging click here. We also have another guide to help with a few special features we have to help build your work file specifically in ABP if you click here.
Filling in your Information
After the Catalog is done, we move into the actual creation of the document. In this area we have several different sections. We have broken these sections up so they are easier to digest. The first thing we need to do, before we actually start, is build our "Template". This is not a normal template, but we want to make sure to set up a guide for the system to help us build this appraisal. This is where the uniformity comes from. The help section for the Template area is available by clicking here. Make note that this is the most complex part of the ABP system, but it is also the part that is used the least. The next thing we need to do in this section is actually create the document, this guide is available by clicking here. Once your document is created we move into the bread and butter of ABP. At this point you can begin entering in some of the pre-filled information. Remember that not only can you edit, and enter in information at this time, you can also change the pre-filled options available to speed up the process. The guide for our pre-filled info, and other blue tabs, can be found by clicking here.
