Forms to Submit for Client Automation

Forms to Submit for Client Automation

When you are getting started with Smokeball, our Client Automation team will automate 10 of your personally created document templates or forms. Before submitting documents to us to automate, take a minute to think of your most commonly used forms. Below are some commonly submitted documents/templates.

Smokeball has a templates and forms to use including prescribed court and authority forms. If there is a prescribed court or authority, title insurer form, jurisdictional specific form, etc. our Content team will automate that and make it available in Smokeball's form/template library. Prescribed court and authority forms do not count towards your 10 submitted forms.

If you are unsure what to submit or have any questions on automation, talk to your account manager and trainer.
