There’s a new cause for celebration among real estate admins everywhere – the new admin compliance process in dotloop has just launched in beta.
Check out the below support article for step-by-step instructions on how to use the new dotloop 2.0 Admin Compliance.
Previously, admins could send a note to the agent if they had questions or needed to return a document. Now, real estate admins can simply drag and drop a yellow “sticky note” to the precise location of the document to create a message that’s directly in context of the section in question. In addition to tagging the submitter of the document, the admin can tag other admins or agents on the team or within a brokerage.
Once a note has been created by the reviewing admin, the agent or admin who submitted the document will automatically receive a notification and be able to view all active notes by toggling through the arrows on a preview screen. As the submitter flips through the notes on the preview screen, the adjacent document will scroll in sync, note to note. With this new feature, the submitter can click directly on a note to reply and resolve the issue.
Once all the messages have been resolved, the notes will disappear and hide from view, though admins can go to View All at any time to see a log of all active and resolved notes.

While your folder-level review statuses will stay the same as before, dotloop 2.0’s new Admin Compliance now features document-level review badges that are color-coded to easily identify whether a document has been returned, approved or still needs review. A light red badge identifies a document that has been returned; a green badge signifies an approved document; and a red badge reflects a document that still needs review.
Agents will see the same document-level review badges in their view of the loop, though they may also see a gray badge, signifying a document has been submitted and is in review.
Another new feature now allows admins to preview a document directly within the Preview Pane without having to go to the Document Editor to review. Admins can simply review documents for compliance from a fast new compact view.
In addition to adding convenience, the new instant view pane provides another layer of security to prevent admins from inadvertently modifying a field in the document.
There are many instances when a document in a folder doesn’t need to be checked for compliance, such as an inspection report. Therefore, dotloop has enhanced its Admin Compliance process to allow admins to choose a third option. In addition to “Approve” and “Return,” admins can now select “No Review Needed.”
Admins who have marked a document to “Approve” or “Return” can now revert to the previous “Review” badge mode if, for example, the document needs to undergo further admin review.
All of the above features, including “sticky notes,” are responsive across devices, including mobile and tablets, to simplify time-sensitive deals and on-the-go reviews.
