In this article, we will be discussing about the Advanced Conditions for Encompass 360 Business Rules. We have explained on how to use different types of Conditions with examples. Before going into examples, lets touch base and learn what is “Conditions and Pre-defined Conditions”.
- We can define a rule that applies only if the loan is for a purchase, or only if the subject property is in a particular state.
- Using conditions, you can define a wide array of rules that apply to all the different loan scenarios handled by your users.
- It is easy to define conditions, Encompass 360 have included several pre-defined condition types to allow simple point and-click selection.
- We can define a rule that applies only to loans originated in New York by selecting the “Property State” condition type, and then selecting New York from the list provided.
- Similarly, we can define a rule that applies only for conditions based on loan purpose, loan type, loan status, and so on.
Advanced Conditions for Encompass 360 – Points to Remember
- In Encompass 360, we can build our own business rules based on our requirements. While we build our business rules, we may require a rule conditioned upon a field not provided in the pre-defined list, or that involves complex logic based on multiple field values.
- In these scenarios, we use the Advanced Conditions option to build an expression that defines our custom condition.
- When Advanced Conditions is selected, a text box appears where you can enter custom logic using Visual Basic .NET.
- We can also enter a loan custom field calculation. The expression must evaluate to a Boolean (true/false) value. If the expression evaluates to true, the rule is applied; otherwise, the rule is ignored.
- If the expression results in an error of any kind, the rule will not be applied.
To understand easily, we have included an image where it explains how we can make use of Advanced Conditions by building it on our own based on our requirements.
We have, Advanced Conditions is [LCP.X1] = “Lender”
[LCP.X1] = Loan Compensation Plan
