WinTOTAL Aurora — April 11, 2015 Update

This update introduces new status options for your Mercury Network assignments.  You now have the option to “Add Internal Status” for private updates that you don’t want your client to see or “Update Client” to launch your Mercury Network portal and alert your client of the latest status.  This change sets the stage for future improvements in how you control all of your orders.

We also fixed an issue related to the CLVS Pre-Delivery Check that could cause the Appraisal Desktop to close.
