Common login issues (and how to fix them)

I’m getting a message my login is NOT CORRECT or my ACCOUNT IS LOCKED!

Oh man, we know how annoying it is when you just want to get some work done and can’t get signed in!

The problem here is that the login you have entered on your app isn’t right (and sometimes after trying it wrong too many times you can even get locked out).

The good news is, its really easy to fix — just follow these steps!


My account says it is SUSPENDED — help!

If you receive a message on your app that your account is suspended, here’s how to resolve it:

Your account administrator, often the person who provided your login or the customer service contact for your Title Company, needs to go to the Admin System (Title Profile) and check on your account settings indicated in the screenshots below (click to view full-size):

Backing up your Farm Data to Apple’s iCloud

Getting a new phone and want to transfer your farms over?

To make sure the App Data is backed up, follow these directions from Apple on BOTH the new and old devices:

—————————

If you are backing up to iCloud

  1. Go to Settings iCloud Storage & Backup Manage Storage
  2. Tap the name of your device under Backups
  3. Look for the app under Backup Options (tap Show All Apps if you don’t see it)
  4. Confirm that it is set to On. This data will now be included in your backup.

—————————

Otherwise, if the old device didn’t have this option set, a direct data transfer would be necessary. You would have to bring both the new and old device to an Apple Store or mobile provider and have a data transfer done.

Notice Regarding Your App Login
This app is a mobile portal to access data from Black Knight Data & Analytics. Our company, Red Shed, does not have access to assist with your login information  — we have included steps necessary to check your login and reset your app below.

Please also note, Black Knight does enforce a password change on their service every 90 days. This affects your mobile app because it needs to use the same account information, so the stored password on your mobile app will also need to be updated every 90 days.

Issues with “Use My Location” (Map Search): “Error Code 13”

WHO IS AFFECTED: Apple users.

THE PROBLEM: When using the “Use My Location” feature (Map Search), users may receive a message that the property is not available (*Code 13*). Apple released a bug in their code with the iOS 9 update that is preventing these searches from being successful.

THE FIX: Released at the end of October, 2015.  If you are still receiving an error as shown below, please visit the App Store on your device, and make sure you have the latest version of the application installed.

FAQs

What is the criteria for Comparable Sales?
Comparable sales (comps) are generated based on criteria set by the data provider licensed by the Title Company.
They may be different from comps from desktop profiles for the same property.  For details, contact support@redshedtech.com with the application you are using.

What do APN, TMS, PIN stand for?
APN – Assessor Parcel Number
TMS – Tax Map Number
PIN – Parcel Identification Number

How many profiles can I save?
There is no limit to the number of profiles you can save in the application.

Do profiles expire?
Profiles do not expire if you have saved them to “My Files”.
Previous Searches (your search history) has a limit of 25 properties.

I emailed a profile and it is not formatted correctly (a big block of text)
Android devices offer a number of mail programs (a user may install any mail program on their device) and we do not have control over how this wide variety of programs may format the report.

Options for Android users: Save to Dropbox if that is an app you use, and then “share” the report from dropbox as it will have more predictable formatting. Alternately, try a different mail program on your device.

Apple only has one mail program (apple mail); so we can set that up with specific formatting. If you are an Apple user and your email is not formatted correctly contact us at support@redshedtech.com.

How is the Turnover Rate calculated?

IF YOU ARE FARMING IN TEXAS: The turnover is calculated based on Any/All Transfers in the area over the past 12 months versus the total number of homes in the area selected. Turnover Rate does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
Example calculation: An area selected with 100 homes, had 10 properties with transfers last year.  The turnover rate is 10%.

ALL OTHER STATES: The turnover rate is calculated based on the number of Full Transfers in the area over the last 12 months versus total number of homes in the area selected. Does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
Example calculation: An area selected with 100 homes, had 5 properties with full transfers last year.  The turnover rate is 5%.

How do I update the Farm Data?
Walking Farm® is designed for a user to pull an area, walk a farm, and make notations to the property (updating the property details for one’s own use).  For this reason, farm data is only pulled at the time it is created and do not update.  “Updating” a farm would overwrite the work the user has done on managing the details of property within a farm.

Farm map will not go to an address / Remains at my location.

Maps on Farming are not designed to go to a specific location/address, but instead to farm a general area. The map will always load based on your location first. Refer to the details below to locate another area on the map to begin your farm search:

Android: Enter city/state or zip code to locate that general area on the map. Pan/zoom until you locate your precise area to draw your farm shape.

Apple: you may enter a specific address or intersection, and the map will locate that general area on the map. Pan/zoom until you locate your precise area to draw your farm shape.

What are Farm Credits?

This is the number of properties in the area you have created.

I have more than 500 farm credits. Why does it keep telling I can’t pull a report more than 500?

You may pull a maximum of 500 properties in a report. You may pull multiple reports until you reach your credit limit.

I created a Farm on one device, but am not seeing it on my other device.

The application does not sync across devices. So for example, if you created the report on your tablet and then opened the application on your phone, you would have access to the farm you saved on your tablet.

What is the max report size / number of properties?

You may pull a maximum of 500 properties in a report. You can create an area larger than 500 properties, but would need to define it to a smaller report size using filters.

How many farm reports can I save?

There is no limit to the number of reports you can save in the application.

Do farm reports expire?

Farm Reports do not expire.

I created a path for my “Walking Farm®” but it seems to have missed some of the properties.

If your farm is missing properties when you sort, it is possible that the line you drew missed some of the properties.  This is common when a user is trying to sort a very large farm (a hundred to several hundred properties) – the line does need to be drawn quite close to the map pins, and in a very crowded map this can be difficult to do.  A “best use case” for Walking Farm® is to sort a list of properties you plan to walk that day.  This allows you to “zoom in” on the map to a smaller area, and draw a more concise line.

How do the Farm Filters work?

Sale / Transfer Date: Allows you to select start and/or end dates for a period of the most recent transaction.
TIP: Combining this with the “Sale Type” filter for example, would allow you to filter only for properties that sold more than one year ago – since someone who just moved in might not be a good prospect — yet!)

Use Codes – Will provide only properties that match the use type(s) you have selected.
TIP: To search for *all* properties, you do not need to select *any* use codes.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms – Will return only properties within the specified range.
TIP: You do not have to specify *both* a min and max. For example, if you want to return properties that have a minimum of 3 bedrooms, simply select 3 as the minimum, and leave the max empty.

Owner Occupied
“Yes” – Provides only properties that are owner-occupied (as designated by the mailing address).
“No” – Provides only properties where the mailing address for the owner, is different from the property address.
“Either” – Includes both of the above types.

    This will pull a spreadsheet of the title reps page, including the code and # of users.

The Admin Portal does not track the number of searches users have completed. The Admin Portal also does not track “new” users monthly, simply total number of users connecting to each code.
