Important information to make note of when using Client Hub:
Appraisal must be assigned to an appraiser.
Appointment Date must be set.
Contact(s) must be set with at least one of the following filled out: phone number or email address.
Please note that reminder notifications will only be delivered during the hours of 7am - 6pm.
To enable Client Hub notifications from the New Order form:
Enable appointment confirmation, automatic notifications (if the appointment time or assigned appraiser is changed), and reminders for each client type on the Create New Appraisal long form by checking off the box by each relevant contact. You can choose to hide these checkboxes in the field settings modal on this page.
Remember! You must set the appointment date and assigned appraiser from the New Order form as well.
To enable Client Hub notifications after the order has already been created:
First, set the appointment date and assign an appraiser. Next, make sure the client(s) you want to turn on notifications for have been selected by checking off the "Enable appointment confirmation via text and email" box by each relevant client. Then click the Client Hub button to trigger the notifications.
You can manually resend the notification anytime by clicking the button again.
When Client Hub notifications have been enabled:
A notification will be sent right away to the selected client, confirming the appointment time.
Update notifications will be sent automatically to the client if the appointment date/time is changed, or if the assigned appraiser is changed.
A reminder notification will be sent to clients 1 hour prior to the scheduled appointment time. Please note that reminders will only be sent out between 7am and 6pm; we do not send automated reminders too early or too late in the day.
When the client gets a notification they will also get a link to the Client Hub appraisal details page where they can access:
Map preview of property location
Inspection appointment details
Who is performing the inspection (assigned appraiser and company logo)
Tips to help prepare a property for inspection

Attention: Canadian Appraisers
Client Hub has quickly become one of the most heavily used features in Anow. In order for us to continue to provide the best experience for you and your clients, the use of Client Hub reminders and notifications will now require Anow Credits.
Client Hub requires time from our Development Team in order to ensure all systems are running smoothly.
Regular testing of the Client Hub by our Support Team.
The costs we incur for notifications sent through Client Hub to Canadian users continue to rise. For this reason, we need to charge for the tool accordingly.
When you enable Client Hub notifications on an appraisal in Anow, you will now be charged 30 Anow Credits. For all Canadians, it will cost $0.30 per order.
If you don't have enough Anow Credits in your wallet, Client Hub notifications will be disabled on the order and you will receive a notification on your screen about purchasing Credits.
