ACORD and Supplemental forms on the Forms tab

Appulate allows users to fill out, download, send by email, and send to sign ACORD and Supplemental forms. ACORD forms associated with the insurance line and Supplemental forms associated with markets selected on the RFQ interface can be found on the Forms tab. 

Note: The Forms tab is available only when you've already created an Insured and RFQ.

  • Some ACORD and Supplemental forms may be hidden, click Available forms to view and add the forms you need.
  • Supplemental forms are provided by a few markets for particular insurance lines and states. For more information, see the Forms List.
  • The number of displayed (not available) forms is shown on the tab.
  • ACORD and Supplemental forms are also available under "Forms" on the Quotes Docs tab of the policy.

Note: Your company may have certain restrictions regarding ACORD and Supplemental forms. Agents on ProducerConnect Standard and markets without the ACORD license cannot access these forms. For more information, please contact our sales team at sales@appulate.com.

Each form has the Edit and drop-down menu buttons on its right, which allow you to perform the following actions:

  • Edit: opens the Q&A and Inline editors, where you can fill out the selected form.
  • Send by email
  • Send by fax
  • Sign: initiates the form signing procedure using the eSignature service for ACORD forms and Supplementals. If you click on the arrow on the left side of the form, you can view the following information: "Signed Producer", "Signed Applicant", "Sent on" (the date and time when the document was sent to the insured for signing), "Signed on" (the date and time when the document was signed by the insured). Additionally, the "Signed Document" and “Audit Trail” are available on the right in the same row. The agent user can also send a reminder to the insured by clicking "Remind to sign" or cancel the signing procedure by clicking "Cancel Signing" if the insured has not signed the document yet or delete the signed document by clicking "Delete". When the agent user signs the document, an email notification with a link to this document signing tool is sent to the insured client.

  • Get as one PDF: downloads all selected PDF documents as one file.

You can also upload your ACORD and Supplemental forms.

The uploaded ACORD forms will be parsed and the information will appear in the questionnaire (if you have a purchased OCR license).
