Dear Hilary – Missing Data
December 2017

Dear Hilary,

I want to update the missing original collateral values for some of our loans, but we are not able to include them in our file. Is there a way to add them into Visible Equity’s Loan Portfolio Analytics?

Sincerely,
Missing Data

 

Dear Missing Data,

There absolutely is a way to get those values in Visible Equity’s Loan Portfolio Analytics. You can update the missing original collateral values, or any other missing data, by loading a “patch” or “supplemental” data file.

Supplemental data files update, or supplement, from source files. An identification number is needed to create a link between the supplemental data file and the source file (e.g. Loan ID Number, Application ID Number). An example of when a supplemental data file would be used, is when collateral details are not included in a source file. The supplemental file would contain Loan ID Numbers and the collateral details.

If you have any questions about the format of your supplemental file, please reach out to our support system through submitting a support ticket through our help center. Our team is always happy to help our clients with data and file questions!

 

Happy Friday!
Hilary
