**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

Monday Night Scheduled Downtime for Maintenance

We will be performing scheduled maintenance that may result in inability to access your Sales Simplicity environment on July 22nd, 2019 (Monday night) from approximately 10pm-4am Pacific time. Please ensure all users have saved their work by the beginning of this scheduled downtime. Any questions or concerns please contact

UPDATE – The application is back up and running as of 3am PST.

XML file generation is not working properly and development is looking into it. Meanwhile, your XML files are safe in the queue waiting to be sent out when the service is behaving again.

Builders with ODBC access may need to request to have their login user re-associated with their database.

As always, if you have any problems or questions please email us at

Customer Marketing Outage (Resolved)

On 7/16, our Support team identified an issue with our Customer Marketing tool that affects mass marketing emails targeting Realtors. When sending mass marketing emails using realtor-specific filters, the realtor recipients were receiving multiple copies of the marketing emails. The issue has been resolved as of 7/17. Any emails that were queued to be sent during this time period have successfully been sent.

Additionally, our Development team is currently working on two other items that some builders have seen regarding workflow notification duplication and follow-up task removal in the To-Do Suite. We are working to resolve these newly identified items as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions regarding these or other issues, please feel free to reach out to our Support team at

Server IP address change pending

Over the next few weeks our server’s IP addresses are going to be changing.

The new IP addresses will be:

Web / FTP Server –
SQL Server –

New email IP range –,

Any IP address whitelisting that you may have should be updated to include these IP addresses. This includes whitelisting on your BMT server to communicate with the web server or via FTP, whitelisting on your firewalls to allow access to the website, or whitelisting on your email servers to allow email communications from the servers.

If you’re not sure what this means for you, or how to implement these changes, email us @
