Easier permit resubmittals

We made creating the right kind of submittal in a permit a little easier.

Now, when a plan review in permit has been Delivered, Not Approved, like this:

After you click the Create Submittal button, you will be prompted to create a resubmittal like this:

We hope this will help in the decision-making process (...Initial submittal or resubmittal? 🤔) when you are creating a resubmittal.

Creating an initial submittal/submittal #1?

The process of creating the initial submittal, remains the same. Need a refresher? View our how-to guide here: Create a permit submittal and assign a plan review

Recalculating fees after decrease of estimated valuation

In this release, refunds will not be shown automatically if all permit fees have been paid and the estimated valuation number is decreased. In these instances, you will be able to control which fees (that are calculated based on the estimated valuation and part of a sum of fees) are recalculated after the estimated valuation amount is decreased.

So, it works like this:

  1. Permit fees are paid in full, balance due = $0.00

  1. The estimated valuation is decreased, but all fees have already been paid.

  1. The assessed fees aren't automatically recalculated and no refund is shown with this change (decreasing the valuation):

  1. If you need to show a refund, the control is in your hands. 😄 Click Recalculate next to the fees that need to changed.

  1. Now the assessed fee has been changed and it shows a refund due.

As always, if you have any questions about this process, please reach out to us! support@communitycore.com
