A new update is ready. To download this update, and any prior updates, just click Help inside TOTAL, and then click Check for Updates.

This update is designed to help you save time writing reports and answer client questions quicker.

Keep your Photos PowerView open

The Photos PowerView is now undockable, so you can see all photos at once while working in the report. Manage your images on one screen and easily drag and drop them into your report on another screen. Can't remember what type of counters were in the kitchen?  Keep the photo open in one window and your report open in another — no more toggling back and forth or relying on memory.

Line numbering makes answering client questions easier

Do you get frustrated when a client asks a question that has already been addressed in your Addenda?  With the new line numbering feature, you'll be able to help quickly identify where it's located. Simply tell your client, "see line XX in the addenda."  Line numbers can be saved to a PDF or printed — making communication with your clients more concise.

Of course we've also added a host of fixes with this update. Most notably:

  • Signature placement remains after multiple edits
  • Address stays consistent in both the form and map balloon when fields are locked
  • You can now upload to TOTAL for Mobile from the Dashboard

Features have also been added based on your feedback, including:

  • Add AutoCorrect entries from spell check or by right‑clicking a highlighted word
  • The SmartAddress icon now shows the number of times a property has been used in the past
  • Create an XML version of the 1004D Minor form without a major form

For the complete list of improvements, take a look at the detailed release notes below. And, as always, thanks again for giving us your thoughts via the Feedback feature inside TOTAL.
