I hope you had a chance to read our last feature spotlight post on Sampling. If you didn’t, make sure you check it out! The RIMS feature spotlight series is meant to give readers more insight into popular features helping you get to know the RIMS advantage a little bit better.
The second feature I want to highlight in this series is Batch Update. RIMS Batch Update makes managing complex due diligence projects simple. With Batch Update, you can simultaneously edit multiple fields associated with task management, saving your Appraisal Department time and frustration.
Batch Update Use Case Example
The Lending Department creates a new project that contains numerous properties and jobs. Each job includes several tasks, such as appraisal orders and appraisal reviews, that need to be completed. With just a few clicks, an approved user in the Appraisal Department can use Batch Update to assign groups of those tasks to specific job managers, streamlining workflow.
Why is Batch Update an important RIMS feature?
- Efficiency. Assign groups of related tasks to a job manager, ensuring the right people are on each job. Batch Update simplifies project management.
- Flexibility. Batch Update is optional and completely scalable. Use it to execute largescale updates without sacrificing granular control.
- Versatility. Use Batch Update to modify a variety of fields, including due and complete dates, job manager, task disposition, GL account, and more!
- Oversight. All changes made with Batch Update are logged and notifications are sent automatically. Stay on top of everything without needing to micromanage.
