  2. 2. Java Who? Java is a programming language from the good old days that has been considered a backbone of the internet for many years. Java has been having some issues lately and a recent security scare caused all sorts of online drama … zipForm(r) is now Java free. This means that you will be able to login faster and you will not have to update Java every time you try to use the program.Yey. (c) Stefanie Hahn | | September 2013

  26. 26. (c) Stefanie Hahn | | September 2013 UsingTemplates We’ve created a CBH Buyer and CBH Seller template for you with all of the PAR forms that you “typically” need to complete your transaction. When you apply a template, at the start of your transaction, all of the forms that are in that template are automatically placed into your transaction folder. Give the system a minute to get everything in there … You can still add more forms (or take forms out that you don’t need) when you have applied a template. Click on the > FORMS (right side) to access all available forms. Be careful – one click ADDS a form to your transaction! Easiest way to find the form you want – click on Sort > click on Categorized
