Welcome to May’s release notes! This past development cycle, our team continued to make helpful additions to our new Enterprise-level Deliverables feature. Some smaller improvements you may also notice include better client searchability within AdvicePay and less system emails going to spam/junk folders.

Let’s dive into our release notes below to check out everything new and get a sneak peek at what is just around the corner!


What we're most excited about 🎉

Deliverables Enhancements 

Our Deliverables feature on Enterprise was released back in April and we’ve been busy ever since adding popular enhancements! Here are two fun additions added this month:

eSign Documents as Deliverable Evidence

Firms can now set up templates giving advisors the option to submit an eSign document as evidence of the deliverable. This eSign option integrates with your existing HelloSign or DocuSign integration, making it cinch to get a document signed and included as evidence!

Custom Deliverable Due Dates

Firms also now have the ability to set up Deliverables templates with custom due dates. This allows you to select any date (past, current, or future) that you want that deliverable submitted by, versus having it automatically calculated based on an “invoice paid” or “agreement signed” date:
