Transactions settings is where you set up the whole process of the Transactions aspect of the system. Build your exit strategies or Transaction Types and preset your calculations for your team.


Set up Details

Create a master list of fields for information that you want to track for any of your Transaction Types i.e Wholesale, Wholetail, Flip, etc. We will be able to use specific fields later when creating a Transaction type.

  1. Select a team that you wish to view
  2. Click ⚙️ the cogwheel icon
  3. Select Transactions in the drop-down
  4. Go to the Details tab
  5. Click ✏️ the pencil icon to go into Edit mode
  6. Type the name of the field that you want to add i.e Acquisition Notes, Closing Date, etc.
  7. After the field has been created, click ✏️ the pencil icon next to it to edit the field type or rename the field
    • The field types available are:
      • Standard text input
      • Multi-line text input
      • Email Input
      • Telephone input
      • Date Selector
      • Time Selector
      • Web link

      • Radio Group
      • Checkbox
      • Calc field (automatic calculations)
  8. Click 💾 the save button at the bottom-right corner


Set up Pricing Inputs

Create a master list of fields for Pricing information that you want to track for any of your Transaction Types. We will be able to use certain Pricing fields later when creating a Transaction type.

  1. In the Transactions setting, go to the Pricing Inputs tab
  2. Click ✏️ the pencil icon to go into Edit mode
  3. Add pricing fields that you want to track. These could be Contract Price, Estimated Repairs, Closing Costs, etc.
  4. Click ✏️ the pencil icon next to the field if you want to change the field type or rename it


Set up Canceled Reasons

Create reasons that you can assign when a deal is canceled.

  1. In the Transactions setting, go to the Canceled Reasons tab
  2. Click +Add Reason and type the name of the reason
  3. Inside of the reason, automatically assign a task, send an email notification, or a webhook

Create Transaction Types

Create your exit strategies as Types which your team will be able to run your under-contract opportunities through.

  1. In the Transactions setting, go to the Types tab
  2. Click +Add Type to add a new one. This could be Wholesale, Wholetail, Flip

Pipeline

  1. Go to the Pipeline tab to build out the statuses
  2. By default, you have Unassigned, Assigned, and Closed pipelines. Click on one and Click the Add Status button. These are the step-by-step statuses that you will run your under-contract opportunities through. For example, I have Untouched, No contact, Need pics & access, Marketing being created, etc., in the Unassigned Pipeline. 


You can also create a Workflow to automatically assign a task whenever a certain status is selected. For example, you can create a workflow for 'Marketing being created' where it would automatically assign a task to "Add all pictures to Dropbox folder"

After creating a Transaction Type, you can duplicate it to create a different variation.

  2. Select a default Transaction Type to which under-contract Opportunities will be sent. Your Transaction team can easily change the Type later if needed.
  3. Click the Add a field button to start adding fields. This will use your master list of Details and Pricing Input fields so make sure that you have them created first before creating a submission form.
