Since the release of Comply 20.0 in late October, a few changes have been made that can affect your Comply experience. A fix to correct filtering made just prior to the release of Comply 20.0 inadvertently broke the Quick Set functionality. While there was a workaround for that using Global Set, the bigger issue was that it affected Automation in Fair Lending. Secondly, an issue surfaced where creating Peer HMDA entities using institutions with identical names was causing a duplication error. Lastly, just yesterday, the FFIEC published edit changes to CRA for the 2020 reporting year. While the edits do not affect submittable records, we took this opportunity to get them into the Comply 20.01 update.
If your institution is interested in any of these changes or you have not installed the version 20.0 update yet, you will want to update to this new version at your earliest convenience. For a complete list of changes please read the official changes document on the support site or on the Comply Start page under resources.
We are happy to announce that Comply 20 is now available on our support site for download. This version of Comply contains all of the latest edit and submission changes needed to submit your 2020 HMDA and CRA data. It also contains the new 2021 reporting year so you can start to collect and prepare for the 2021 submissions as well. A changes document will be posted to the support site later today and made available on the Start Page so that you will know what is fixed, updated and added to this latest version. Because this is a submission version, it is mandatory and critical that you do this update before performing your 2020 submission and really it should be installed at your earliest convenience so that there are no surprises with the new or updated edit checks.
In addition to the Changes Document, and available now on the Start Page, we also have a Changes Log that we try to keep up to date with the same information. This Log also has things being worked on for future versions as well. So periodically you can check the Changes Log to see where things are and when new versions are expected to be released. The changes document will be in a simpler format to digest the information and will also contain release notes which are helpful, but both options have their purpose and can be helpful.
As always, your feedback is always welcome. Please feel free to call or email us with comments, suggestions or any other feedback you have. We want to make sure the Comply software is moving in the right direction and hopefully solving all of your HMDA, CRA and Fair Lending compliance needs.
