Check this out! A new feature was released in your zipForm® 6 Professional and Standard editions. The new Transaction Information allows you to paste address book information to the corresponding fields within your transaction. Never again do you have to look up your Title Rep’s address in Outlook®.
As a zipForm® 6 user this new feature is available now! zipForm® 6 Professional users, simply login to your account and start taking advantage of the feature we call "Transaction Information." zipForm® 6 Standard users just update your software when prompted to utilize the new feature.
The address book is also integrated with sending emails, e-signatures, and faxes right from zipForm® 6. No more typing or looking up information when you’re in a hurry. Importing from the address book helps eliminate the need to re-enter information that has been previously saved. Visit http://support.zipform.com/zf6/6_videos.asp# for instructions on how to import and export in your zipForm® 6 Address Book.
