The Apply Now settings allow for you to make various configuration changes to your loan application and loan application settings.
Among these settings, you'll have access to include and edit custom questions in your loan application.
Custom questions can be added to the application if you wish to obtain additional information from the borrower not built into our standard loan application. The custom questions can be added to any part of the application and will appear at the end of the section from the borrower perspective.
