Improvements

Alto set up - additional default branch settings

This improvement went live on 30th April.

We've changed some of the settings that are added to a branch by default when it's created.

This saves time for our onboarding team, which translates to a quicker time getting your branch configured ready for your use in Alto.

Repositioned 'action' buttons when using the address look-up

This improvement went live on 29th April.

We’ve made some design tweaks to the layout of 'action' buttons when looking up a property’s address as part of adding a property.

This is in response to customer feedback, examples being not being able to see the Look up property button. It also applies some uniformity with other pages you'll see as part of adding a property.

Usability improvements for the add a property page

This improvement went live on 18th April.

We’ve made several usability improvements when adding a property to help you navigate through the screens/sections, including:

  • Left hand navigation indicators which highlight which part of the screen/section you're on (Vendor/landlord selection, Property creation, Market Appraisal booking)
  • Skip links within the left hand navigation to help you understand/break down the different sections (First Person, Second Person, Address, Circumstances. Address, Enquiry type, Property details, Energy efficiency rating, Notes)
  • The optional Second Person section is now collapsed when creating a new contact

Removed the old add a property page

This improvement went live on 15th April.

Following a ‘notice period'/countdown, we've now removed the old add a property page.

When adding a property via Properties on the main navigation bar, you'll now go through the new page (without the ability to opt-out).
