Remember – Production Maintenance Schedule Is Now Online

Production maintenance emails can get buried in your inbox, so we are discontinuing them at the end of the year in favor of our online maintenance calendar. Accessed via the Ellie Mae Status Center, the calendar will be routinely updated. And – so there are no surprises – a communication will be sent to system administrators if maintenance occurs outside the standard windows listed below.
Standard production maintenance windows:

         Tuesdays: 10:00pm-2:00am PT
         Thursdays: 10:00pm-2:00am PT
         Saturdays: 8:00pm-4:00am PT

More Encompass Product & Pricing Service Upgrades Planned

Encompass Product and Pricing Service will keep getting better over the coming year with these upgrades:

         New Rule Manager functionality: Will expand the existing customer-managed holdback
          functionality and provide the ability to customize investor loan programs with overlays.
          This feature will allow client administrators the ability to set profit margins and loan-level
          adjustments, display qualifications notes, and disqualify loans conditionally based on a
          number of commonly tested loan characteristics.
         New dashboard: Will allow you to upload rates for processing and view the status of
          pricing files, even if you choose not to use the upload capability. The dashboard will also
          allow you to securely manage Investor Credentials.
