Custom Document Folders

Creating a folder for the documents we use on a regular basis is a way to save time when we are ready to use them.  This applies to the agent and the broker level.  In dotloop, you are able to use your local, state and office forms (as long as you have permission to use them) for your real estate transactions.

Once you are logged into the system (dotloop.com), click on the “templates” at the top right (it’s the one that looks like papers).  To create a new folder, click on “Add Folder” and it will ask you to give it a name and click “Create Folder”.  Once you have the new folder, documents will need to be added to it.  Click on “Add Documents” at the top right.  This gives you the option for uploading them from your computer (PDF’s) or selecting from templates, which are your live forms.  When selecting from templates, select from the office name or “Version Now”.  AGENTS: If you are setting them up from an agent level, you will see the office name (example: Keller Williams Realty Advantage) or board name (example: Greater Tulsa Association of Realtors).  ADMINS: If you are setting them up from an office or admin level, you will see “Version Now” documents, which are the live forms that your office has loaded into the system.  Admin folder will also have to be “shared” with the office so that your agents can use the newly created folder of documents.  ALL: Once you have selected the forms you want to add, click “add documents” and they will now be in your folder.Document Templates Menu

If your forms have changed and new ones are in the system for existing folders, use the same process as listed above with the exception of clicking on the existing folder and modifying the list instead of creating a new one.Select Documents Menu

Now that you have your folders creating and don’t forget you can also set the default information on each form once it is added to your personal folder so that each time you pull in the document from that folder, it will have the defaulted information on it.  To do this, click on the document, edit it and then click “save”.  This is a great way to save time!  Happy Looping!

Email Creates a New Loop

Some features completely change the way you do something!  This new option to create a loop by sending an email is one such feature.  It is pretty simple and here is how it works.

1. Create an email to your dotloop email address.  (Your email address is typically firstname.lastname@upload.dotloop.com.  It can also be found in the templates section at the top of the page.)  Sample Email new Loop

2. In this email, attach the documents you want to load into the loop and in the subject line type this: “new loop:”.  The colon is required.  If you do not add anything after the colon it will name it “This is your new loop”.  If you do add something after the “:” then that will be the name of the loop.  For example: “new loop: 1st Emailed Loop”, then your loop will be named exactly that, see the example below.

New Loop from Email

This does not submit it to the office for you, but it does create the loop for you.  This is a great option for agents that just want to turn in documents but not use all of the options of dotloop.

The second new feature to emailing into your dotloop account is that you can now add documents to a specific loop just by sending an email.  The email address to send it to can be found inside your loop under the “add documents” and it is the 3rd option on the right.  Please note: If you change the loop name, the “email files in” address will also change.email files in

It’s time for you to try!  Go create your own 1st Emailed Loop!
