Introduction

Remember back in Unit 1 when we said most loans require a ton of paperwork, and mortgages are no different? Borrowers find that applying for a mortgage is the most complicated and time-consuming task they experience when engaging with a financial services institution. In fact, it takes an average of 46 days to close on a mortgage, due to data and archaic processes that are fragmented across many different silos and stakeholders. 

The document tracking and approvals innovation from Salesforce is just what the doctor ordered for this problem. Document tracking streamlines borrower engagement by allowing borrowers like Richard and loan officers like Sofia to upload supporting documents that are required for a mortgage application. 

Document checklist items for Richard Bennet within Financial Services Cloud.

Sofia can create a list of document checklist items for Richard, so he can clearly see what documents are required. Each document goes through the approval process as defined by Cumulus, and both Richard and Sofia (as well as Shah, the underwriter) gain visibility into the status of each document.

Matt the admin can create document types that define commonly required documentation for completing a mortgage process. Sofia can then create a document checklist item for each file required from customers like Richard. Richard then uploads a relevant file for the document checklist item, and the files are tracked through an approval process, ultimately being approved or rejected by underwriters like Shah. Richard uploads new versions of rejected documents and tracks the progress of his uploaded documentation from submission to approval.

Update Opportunity and Account Page Layouts

Next up, Matt adds the Document Checklist Items component to the Related Lists sections on Opportunity and Account page layouts.

  1. From Setup, open Object Manager.
  2. Enter Opportunity, then click Opportunity.
  3. Click Page Layouts and then select the layout that your document checklist items users will see.
  4. On the palette, select Related Lists.
  5. Drag Document Checklist Items from the palette to the Related Lists section and click Save. If you’re prompted to overwrite user’s related list customizations, click Yes.
  6. From Setup, open Object Manager.
  7. Click Account.
  8. Click Page Layouts and then select the layout that your document checklist items users will see.
  9. On the palette, select Related Lists.
  10. Drag Document Checklist Items from the palette to the Related Lists section and click Save. If you’re prompted to overwrite user’s related list customizations, click Yes.

Set Up Document Types

Matt defines commonly required document types to associate a new document checklist item with a document type. Examples include W-2, driver’s license, and paystubs. Matt can use these document types for filtering in reporting too.

Note

Creating document types is optional.

  1. From Setup, in the Quick Find box, enter Document Type, then select Document Type.
  2. Click New Document Type.
  3. On the New Document Type screen, enter a label. Matt enters Driver’s License.
  4. To add another document type, click Save & New, or to finish, click Save.

Allow Borrowers Access to Document Checklist Items in Experience Cloud Sites

Matt can empower customers like Richard by providing them direct access to document checklist items through sites. 

This is a two-step process.

  1. Matt must first create a community user profile for Richard.
  2. Matt must then assign Richard’s profile to a specific site.

Let’s see how Matt goes about these steps.

Create a Community User Profile

Matt creates a customer community plus profile with access to document checklist items.

  1. From Setup, in the Quick Find box, enter Profiles, then select Profiles.
  2. On the Profiles page, click Clone next to the Customer Community Login User, the Customer Community Plus Login User, the Customer Community Plus User, or the Customer Community User profile.
  3. Enter a name for the cloned profile and save. Matt enters Mortgage Community.
  4. On the Profile Edit page, click Edit.
  5. Under Standard Object Permissions, enable read access for Document Checklist Items and click Save.

Assign a Profile to an Experience Cloud Site

Matt now assigns Mortgage Community user profile to the SF Bay Area site. In this site, Richard, and other customers like him, can upload the required files.

Note

Ensure that sites (Digital Experiences) are enabled and you have at least one site created for your org.

  1. From Setup, in the Quick Find box, enter Digital Experiences, then select All Sites.
  2. Click Workspaces next to the site you want to assign a user profile to. Matt chooses the SF Bay Area site.
  3. Click the Administration tile.
  4. Click Members in the left pane.
  5. Under Select Profiles, select Customer in the search dropdown list. Enter the name of the customer community plus user profile with document checklist item access that you created and click Find.
    Matt enters Mortgage Community.
  6. Under Available Profiles, select Mortgage Community, click Add, and save.

 Finally, assign the profile you added to Selected Profiles to site users who need access to document checklist items. Matt assigns the Mortgage Community profile to Richard Bennett. 

Update User Profiles

Matt adds relevant permissions for the Document Checklist Item standard object to user profiles such as Loan Officer and Underwriter. For loan officers like Sofia, Matt provides read, edit, create, and delete access. This allows Sofia to adequately support their customers. 

For underwriters like Shah, Matt provides only read access. This allows Shah to view records relevant to his job but prevents him from modifying records.

  1. From Setup, in the Quick Find box, enter Profiles, then select Profiles.
  2. On the Profiles page, click Edit next to the profile you want to add document checklist item access to.
    Matt selects Loan Officer. Recall that Matt had created this profile, along with Underwriter, in Unit 3 and assigned it to Sofia.
  3. Under Standard Object Permissions, select the necessary permissions for Document Checklist Items and click Save.
    Matt selects Read, Create, Edit, and Delete.
  4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the Underwriter profile, but assign read-only permission.

Set Up Sharing

Matt uses sharing settings to control user access to document checklist items.

He sets up sharing for document checklist items using an account sharing model, including account teams, sharing rules, or a role hierarchy. A document checklist item owner can also manually share the record. Check the Resources section for more information.

Create an Approval Process

Matt creates an approval process for the Document Checklist Item object.

Drive your approval process using the standard Status field or a custom field. Approvers for a document checklist item can be account teams, custom fields on the document checklist item, queues, or custom groups. Check the Resources section for more information.

Change Item Deletion Settings

Change the Checklist Items with Attachments setting to let document checklist items be deleted, even if files have been uploaded for them. By default, you can’t delete a document checklist item after a file has been uploaded.

  1. From Setup, in the Quick Find box, enter Document, then select Document Checklist Settings.
  2. On the Document Checklist Settings page, click Checklist Items with Attachments. When the value is set to On, it allows document checklist items to be deleted even when related files have been uploaded. (The uploaded files are not deleted.)

Summing Up

Mortgages for Financial Services Cloud allows Cumulus to gain a 360 degree view of borrowers.

With all the required admin set up now out of the way, Sofia and Shah are all set to usher in true digital transformation to Cumulus’s mortgage lending business. They’re amazed at how Mortgages for Financial Services Cloud simplifies and accelerates the mortgage application process by unifying the experience for borrowers, lenders, and partners. 

Guided loan applications speed up the end-to-end mortgage process while streamlined document tracking and approvals ensure there’s no more manual paper pushing or clerical grunt work. Finally, the new mortgage data model for lenders helps loan officers like Sofia build deeper, more complete relationships with each borrower. Cumulus may have cracked that Holy Grail of client servicing: personalization par excellence.
