Here, within the Branch integration section, you can view a Sent date alongside the available branches you have access to - this is the date upon which you correctly entered the credentials needed to activate the integration.

Integrated branches will see FocalAgent order buttons on their properties. When clicked, this will auto-login to their FocalAgent account, pre-populating the property address and vendor/landlord details to reduce steps in the order process.

Where a property has a live order already in place, clicking on the FocalAgent button in Alto will take you to a status page where you can check the status of your photography order.
