Initial Setup – Additional Information


Because of differences found in many lending models, AutoPal Software makes it very easy to organize information that is not used in loan calculations. For this purpose, inside of each loan, there is a section labeled “Additional Information”. There are several pre-populated fields in this area, additional fields can be made by creating a custom field.

How To

To access the “Additional Information” section, access a loan account, and click the “Initial Setup” tab. The Additional Information is the third section on the page.

This section does not require input in any specific field (unless a required custom field is added), though understanding of the available fields are important.
