I am a loan officer reviewing the application screens with a loan underwriter and the loan underwriter changes are not being saved. Why is this happening? Warning: Since multiple people can we working a loan application at the same time, it is possible for updates to be overridden by another user.  

Screen Overview

The Work/View Application Status system consists of three different layouts that can be used to view pending, denied, and booked (approved/created) loan requests. All incoming applications, regardless of their source, are marked with the date and time when the application record was created. They will also be marked with a Delivery Channel code (the “DC” column) to indicate where the application originated.

The Application Status system is great for:

If at any point you want to start a new loan request, simply use New Application (F1 ) to proceed directly to the first loan processing screen without having to return to the Home Page.

For Loan Team Managers

To get a “dashboard” view of the loan team's activity and progress towards team goals, use Activity Tracking (F17) to display a statistical analysis screen showing all applications in the pipeline.

Analytics Booth: Power Line and Web Version

Launching the Web Version (F22) dashboard will provide additional tools to subscribers to analyze data that can only be found in Analytics Booth, including more screen real estate to view more data at one time, different filters and graphics, and new ways to understand the data. Non-subscribers will be presented with a splash page.

Use the Power Line (F23) button to launch an immediate trend line graph in Analytics Booth to help you better understand your data.

Viewing Pending / Denied / Booked Applications

There are three views available on this screen:

Use the Loan applications from date fields at the top of the screen to choose the range of dates to display. (Corresponds to the date that loan applications were originally created on the system.) This defaults to the past full month, but can be changed to any period desired.

Keep in mind that the system will retain application information for pending applications for only 3 months. Denied applications and denial notices are purged after 3 months. Applications for booked loans are also purged from the application files after 3 months.

Using Search Fields

There are two types of search fields at the top of the screen. The “Jump to” fields (Loan req./app # and Last name) will first sort the list, then scroll to the first matching item. For example, if you are looking to see the status of John Smith's loan application, move to the Last name field, type SMITH and use Enter. The system will sort by last name, then display the first loan request for a member with that name. Alternatively, you can click on any of the column headings to sort applications/loans by that column. In this case, sorting by name and then paging down to SMITH.

The “Select” fields (filters in the middle of the screen with blue Select buttons) will filter the list so that only items that match the criteria will be displayed. Click the Select button to move to a screen to see a list of your credit union's configured codes. Then select the code (or use Ctrl to select multiple codes) and Select to return to the Dashboard. The number of Codes selected will appear next to the button.

Select fields include: UW status, Interviewer ID, Dealer, Underwriter ID, Loan Category, Product Code, Interviewer branch, Delivery channel, Business Unit.

To return to the complete list (sorted by loan app #), clear the search fields and use Enter again. Refresh (F5) does not clear the filters.

Color Coding of Decision Column

The Decision column uses color-coded indicators to show the results of the decision model as well as the results of the deal filters, if any, from the loan product configuration.  If both apply on the same loan application, then the deal filter results will appear only if the decision model passed (or if you do not use 247 Lender at all).

Indicates a decision model was pulled and a decision code of 1-5 (passed) was returned.  Select the app and use the Decision option to see the list of products and services for which the member has been approved.

When looking at our loan queue, we see a "pass decision" status but the application failed in the underwriting assessment requirements.  Why do we see the "pass decision" status?

Indicates a decision model was pulled and a decision code of 98 (failed the model) or 99 (failed) was returned.  Select the app and use the Decision option to review the results and reasons for the failure.

Indicates one of two conditions:

  • A decision code of 97 (failed the filter) was returned without a decision model being run (based on minimum requirements filters such as credit score, debt-to-income ratio, or residency/employment stats); or

  • To see if the member failed the underwriting ratios assessment, refer to the Loan Application - Financial Summary screen.

Select the app and use the Decision option to review the results and reasons for the failure.  

Indicates the loan deal filters were run and passed for this app. 

  • NOTE: This indicator will appear only if the decision model itself was passed (if applicable).     

Indicates the loan deal filters (based on the collateral and loan app data) were run and failed.  Select the app, use Work w/Loan Req, and proceed through to the Loan App Summary screen to re-run the filters and review the reasons for the failure.

  • NOTE: This indicator will appear only if the decision model itself was passed (if applicable).

Indicates the loan deal filters were run and could not be passed.  This could be due to incomplete information on the collateral record or the app itself, or some other error.  Select the app, use Work w/Loan Req, and proceed through to the Loan App Summary screen to re-run the filters and review the reasons.

  • NOTE: This indicator will appear only if the decision model itself was passed (if applicable).

Wait Times this Week

This section to the left of the work area indicates the number of applications that are waiting for paperwork to be signed. Select the images\magnifyingglasslookup_shg.gif button to filter pending applications listed by only those in the designated wait time period. Applications with an underwriter code will omit loans flagged with underwriting codes that are Type A (approval) or Type D (denial). Use Counts by UW Code (F20) to view the status of all codes.

Key Activity Tracking

Notice the Key Activity Tracking area where a record count for up to 6 critical underwriting codes can be displayed. This feature is ideal for central lending departments to monitor incoming loan applications and items requiring immediate attention. Use Refresh (F5) to update counts throughout the day. To see these same counts for all remaining codes, select Counts by UW Code (F20) or click .

Receive an Email When an Online Banking Loan Application Appears in this Queue

Pending Applications

I select a loan request and then when I am on the loan application screens, I do not see all ten buttons at the bottom of the screen.  Why is this happening?

This view shows all loan requests/applications that were created during the selected period and are still at a pending status. Pending applications are automatically purged from this list after the current month minus 120 days.

Select an application in the list and use one of the following options:

Loan File

Use this option to display the Member Loan File Action Codes window, used to view all of the various parts of a member's (or non-member's) loan file, including outstanding loans, existing loan requests, Inquiry, Loan Contract, etc. This is same Action Codes window that appears when working with the Process Member Applications feature.

Decision

If your credit union uses a decision model, this option can be used to display one of the following screens:

  • If the model was run and the member passed the model (was pre-approved), the Credit Report Decision screen will appear to show pre-approval information for this member.

  • If your credit union uses 247 Lender, and if the model was run and the member did not pass (either because the minimum requirement filters failed or the member failed the model itself), the 247 Lender Results screen will display instead to allow you to review decision information.

 

Denied Applications (F11)

This screen shows all loan requests for the selected month that have been denied, with a denial notice generated. Denied applications are automatically purged from this list after the current month minus 90 days. Select an application in the list and use one of the following options:
