This is an informal poll of users of all these various appraisal systems in conjunction with the itemized web portal systems.
The information I am interested in is specifically:
Given any combination of one system from group 1 and one system from group 2, describe what you see/save/reopen/print that is different (converted) from what you would see if you had used a system from group 1 alone, without a web portal.
I am interested in finding out how much control appraisers have over their reports when conversion web portals are used.
In other words, if someone were to tell you that you should be able to see/save/reopen/print a converted file at your desk and preserve it as your true copy in your workfile, could you?
For example, I use AlaMode. When I finish a report in my appraisal software, I convert it to a PDF before I send it. When I hit the send command, I am sending a PDF file. If I want to, I can save that converted-to-PDF file as my true copy of my appraisal. I can see/save/reopen/print it.
I'm trying to learn more about how these systems work. I truly am quite ignorant of almost all of these systems and if I've left any out, let me know.
I appreciate everyone's input.
