This update officially launches TOTAL out of the Labs. It's a Labs graduate!

During the Labs Preview process, we've received a flood of positive feedback messages and made constant improvements based on what appraisers told us. The response was overwhelmingly positive. And, we added features such as the MLS Importer, a brand new QuickPix Importer, TOTAL Store integration with Apex v5 and PhoenixSketch, dozens of interface enhancements, and more. TOTAL will keep getting better with each update too — there's a lot more in store.
