.ENV is a format whereby your data can be/is pulled out, culled, and placed in whatever spreadsheet form the client chooses to use. Your reports are changed and manipulated. It is far different than a PDF. Many appraisers have just said no to it.

If you clickforms then prepare to open your wallet for the privilege to make .env files.

env files is what is sent through AppraisalPort. You have to buy the software from your forms provider. Your orders come through AppraisalPort. When you are ready to send your report to your client you have to log on to AppraisalPort and then your software creates an env file to send. It is kinda tricky the first time or two. Send your report then view and see what pages did get transferred and what pages didn't. There are certain pages that will not convert, so you have to experiment to see which ones do. For example one appraisal covere page might not work so then you have to keep choosing one that is transferrable, or map or photo pages. Eventually you will find in your software the AIReady acceptable ones and then once you do that when you create a file you will need to remember to use the acceptable pages. Save the env file to you computer, problem is you can't open it again.

I am using Clickforms and I when I first bought the software I told them I needed the software for AIReady, but I can't remember what it costs. When I renewed this year it cost $599 for everything that I needed including the AIReady, flood maps, Bing maps, etc, etc.

Unless has some one found the program to be able to open an env file saved to your computer??? I only use the program for Fannie Mae's REOs. I won't use it for AMCs or lenders.

You can send PDFs through AppraisalPort too.

https://www.aiready.com/convpdf/ See Step #4. When the Env.pdf is saved (to desktop for example) ......it opens in PDF format which should mirror exactly the ENV you reviewed before transmittal.

That still doesn't work. Or do I have to go through that process before, during or immediately after I create the env file while still in AIReady? What window is the "browse" tab in? While I am in AIReady for that specific file? How do I open an env file from six months ago?

To export and save the report from ClickForms in AI Ready (.ENV) format please follow the steps
below:
- Go to Orders and select Send to AppraisalPort.
- Click Export which should open the FNC Uploader window.
- Click the “Save” button to save the .ENV file.

FIRST, save the ENV file to desktop (will have a data file symbol )

then.........use the AI CONVERTER Browser to locate the file on your desktop
https://www.aiready.com/convpdf/

convert it to PDF, name it (for ex 4567ENVpdf)

click FILE and SAVE again to desktop

the PDF version of the ENV data file should appear and be readable just like any other PDF.

SAVE THAT PDF file in a client folder or my docs folder (whichever filing system you use for regular PDF reports for each client).
