5.7 Update: Planned for April 6, 2017
The sandbox will be open for testing February 17, 2017
Public Search and Sales Extract
The Sales Extract will now correctly display the “Number of Payments” on sales with multiple mortgages.
The “Jurisdiction” drop-down in the Public Search will allow repeated searches within the same county without clearing out.
When a county or city user selects "Reject" for either study recommendation, the app will now correctly remember that selection when moving between tabs.
If a user leaves land or building value blank in the "Property Types" tab, the app will require those fields rather than filling them in as "0".
“Deeded Acres” will now pull from “Property Attributes” in the “County” tab, rather than from “Planned Use(s) of the Property” in the “Property” tab in the state search.
The state search will now pull the “Market Value” from the city version of an eCRV when an eCRV comes from a city.
Classification tables will correctly show up in the state app, including for sales with both 2a and 2b breakdowns.
Fixed download error when an eCRV has a workflow step from city.
Fixed the Buyer Appraisal Indicator error form download service. Currently, the incorrect value is assigned to the Buyer Appraisal Indicator.
Fixed the search web service, currently when searching by "CurrentWorkflowStepID” using a workflow step id of 0, the search result returns all eCRVs that ever had that step.
5.6 Update: Planned for December 2, 2016
The sandbox will be open for testing September 23, 2016
City, County, and State Applications, Web Services, and Weekly Extract
Property Type Update to County App
First tier group will now include:
First tier group “Airport/Aircraft” is renamed to “Airport/Hangar”.
There will no longer be a “Yes/No” question regarding exemption.
The second tier will remain optional and options will be reorganized based upon the new first tier alignment.
The "Deeded Acres" field will become required if "Agriculture" or "Rural Vacant" is chosen as the Property Type Group.
Agricultural Classifications in County App
Reject Reason in County App
The following “Reject Reason” choices will no longer be allowed: "1-old sale", "13-duplicate CRV", "28-nursing homes”, and “28-manufactured home parks”.
Web Services Documents
Although the documents have already changed, the documented web services changes will not be available for testing in the sandbox until September 23. The following documents have been changed:
"Market Value" in the search results will now show the “Total Market Value” from the county version of the eCRV
Search results in the State app will be sortable by a new “Submission Date” column
County Assessment data will be added to the "State eCRV" tab
5.5 Update: Planned for June 24, 2016
The sandbox is now open for testing the 5.5 update.
Retrieve Edit PIN - Submitters will be able to retrieve their Edit PIN through the eCRV website if he or she forgot or lost it. Instead of calling or emailing the eCRV Support Team, submitters will click a link and answer several questions about the eCRV that was entered. After providing correct information, the Edit PIN will be provided to the submitter. This will apply to the 8-digit Edit PIN for submitted eCRVs.
Removal of Deed Tax Calculator - This change will complete the process of fully removing the deed tax calculator from the county application.
Sequence Number Validation Rule - This change will create a validation rule for entry of sequence numbers by county users in the "Sequence ID" column. Only positive whole integers and 0 will be allowed.
Web Services Accepted Indicator - This update will impact the "CountyAccepted_Indicator" in the download web service so that it aligns with the "CountyAccepted_DateTime" indicator. The change will ensure that both indicators will either both be True or both be False. Web Services documentation will not be updated due to this change.
5.4 Patch Update: Published on January 29, 2016
Property Type requirement - County users will no longer be required to enter the "Property Type" field. The "Property Type Group" will remain required. Because of how the property dropdowns were previously organized, this change has caused "Property Type Group" to be a new code field for Web Services called "PropertyGroupCde." This field will always be present in the Web Services download and "PropertyType" may still be present as it is an optional field. The following Web Services documents have been changed based upon this new code:
Public Search application - This fixes a problem where eCRVs accepted in the first 12 hours or the last 12 hours of the month were not being included in the search results list.
Web Services – This fixes a problem where a download call could fail in certain circumstances. The temporary workaround had been to check the "Use Codes Corrected or Verified" box.
Web Services – Updated Web Service documents to include deed type codes "PERREPDEED" and "SPECWARNTY" and adjustment type code "SPECASESSMT." These codes were added to the code tables earlier in 2015 but were not included in the Web Services documents. The affected Web Service documents are:
Web Services – Property program codes AGP-M and AGP-NM were causing failures on download. The codes are being changed to AGP_M and AGP_NM on all eCRVs which have these programs indicated. This will be reflected in the web services implementation of ecrvBaseTypes.
County application – Fixes a problem where deprecated property type codes A00, B00, D00 were still being included in the pick list. These codes will still appear in existing eCRVs, but will not be available for selection on new eCRVs.
County application – The "Assess Year of Values Given" field is becoming a required field. Currently the land and building value fields are required and this change aligns with the overall intent of this data area.
County and City applications – Eliminates the ability for local staff to re-enable the deed tax display. The display was already turned off in all counties.
All applications – Fixes a problem where the rule that deed acreage must be numeric was not being enforced.
