**UPDATE** **RESOLVED** Known Issue: Garage Orientation on Spec Homes

**UPDATE** On 9/24 a fix was pushed to resolve this issue. If you continue to see issues please contact support.

We are currently aware of an issue where the selected garage orientation for a spec home is not always pulling through correctly to the customer record.

Our development team is aware of the issue and researching a fix.

In mean time, if you need to take a customer to contract, you can work around this issue by going to subdivision>lots changing the selected garage orientation to blank, then on the customer record you will be able to select the garage orientation and go to contract.

We will update this post as we have more information.

**UPDATED**Resolved**Workflow Service Currently Down

**UPDATE** As of approximately 9:45am Pacific Time this issue was resolved and the service is back on.

Per the previous post, after maintenance last night we are experiencing an issue with XML file generation. To troubleshoot and resolve that issue we have had to stop the Workflow service, which processes workflow events and sends workflow emails.

We do not currently have an ETA for resolution but will update this post as soon as we have more information.

No data will be lost and any workflow events triggered during the downtime will send once the service is turned back on.

As always, if you have any problems or questions please email us at Support@SalesSimplicity.com
