Enter a Doc File ID
If you have received or uploaded an appraisal that already has a Doc File ID as a result of submission to UCDP, you can enter that Doc File ID in DataCourier.
Here's why the option exists, and when you would want to use it.
Edit the Doc File ID if you're submitting a revised appraisal to UCDP
The only time you would have a Doc File ID for an appraisal is if you already submitted an appraisal to UCDP for the same loan. So, the only reason to manually enter the Doc File ID in DataCourier is if the DataCourier appraisal will replace your previous UCDP submission.
Let's say that you received an appraisal via e-mail (not safe!) and submitted it to UCDP outside of DataCourier. But, it contained an error, and you need to resubmit it. So, you requested the revision, and the appraiser has delivered that revision to you via DataCourier. Of course, you could download the MISMO XML from DataCourier then log directly into the portal and submit the revised report to the existing loan file, but there's a better way:
The new appraisal will replace any previous submission, and you'll receive the new SSR and review results in DataCourier.

If you're trying to upload an additional appraisal for the same loan, you'll need to log directly into UCDP and manually upload any appraisal that's in addition to the first one you submitted. Here's how:
How do I know for sure?
If you're not sure that you're submitting a second or third appraisal for the same loan, you can log into UCDP and do a search for the loan number. Here's how:
If the loan you're working with already has an appraisal, and the appraisal that you're submitting is a completely separate report for this loan, you can be reasonably sure that you're submitting an additional appraisal rather than a revised version of the first submission. Go ahead and submit the additional appraisal within the portal as described above.
Remember: You can avoid logging directly into the portal if you order your appraisals using a full Mercury Network account - and that's just one of the excellent tools you can use in Mercury Network, and it's free to use! Learn more here.
