Release Notes

Mercury Network 3. 0 — May 30, 2012 Update

This update contains improvements throughout Mercury Network and VMP XSites.

New Feature: Automatic invoice options for VMP XSite

You can now automatically create and send invoices to your clients based on customizable triggers - such as charging a credit card or completing a report. You can also auto-number your invoices and set default due dates. These new settings are available globally and for specific Client Groups. To request a demonstration of the new feature, click here for instructions on contacting our Client Relations team.

New Feature:  Automatic order options for VMP XSites

Your VMP XSite can now auto-assign the internal order number so you can track new orders using your own consistent numbering format. You can also set a default due date for new orders placed on your VMP XSite, and control whether customers can enter their own due dates or if they must use your default due date.

New Feature: Support for submitting multiple appraisals to UCDP

When a single, UCDP-destined loan requires more than one appraisal, Mercury Network now supports the ability to upload multiple appraisals using the same Doc File ID. Click here for a document describing how to use this new feature.

New Feature: Loan number is now required

Loan numbers are now required on all new Mercury Network orders. If VMP XSite orders are created without a Loan Number, the Loan Number must be added when the order is edited.

New Feature: Option to upload completed appraisal to order

Users can now upload completed appraisals from the Mercury Network Order Details page. Simply click on the Set Order Status menu and click Mark as Complete.Here, any appraisal received via DataCourier — or even outside Mercury Network entirely — can be uploaded to a Mercury Network order.

Note: Users must have the “Compliance” permission to use this feature.

New Feature:  DataCourier: Ability to add/edit a Doc File ID on a DataCourier file

DataCourier customers now have the option to submit an appraisal to UCDP using a Doc File ID they've already received. Simply add the existing Doc File ID to the order and click Submit to UCDP. It’s important to note that only the first appraisal for a loan can be submitted from DataCourier. If you need to submit multiple, unique appraisals for a single loan, you'll need to use Mercury Network.

Important note about DataCourier files:

With this update, we will only retain DataCourier files for 90 days from the date the report is uploaded. Those of you with DataCourier files that are older than 90 days as of 5/30/2012 will have access to those files until July 12 2012 – at which time they will be deleted. Please click here to contact Client Relations with any questions.
