Password Reset

Roy

I have noticed some password reset errors.  Most of these errors have happened because the user was trying to reset their password and entered their "email address" in the username box.  You must enter your username and not your email address unless your email address is your user name. If the username is correct an email will be sent to the email address connected to the user account and when you click the link in the email you will be sent to a page on CADO to create a new password.

  • Your user profile is not connected to the Adjuster Roster, so if you wish to be listed on the Roster you will need to add your name to the Roster.  
  • If you have a Roster Profile and wish to update it you will need to use the same "CADO User Account" that you logged in with when you added your Roster Profile, a new account will not give you access to anything added with an old account.

  • A login for CatAdjuster.org does not give you access to the Classifieds.  If you wish to post ads in the Classifieds you will need an account for the Classifieds. Please see the Classifieds for additional information.

What is a Slot?

A slot is the container that the banner you provide is place in for displaying.

Each  slot contains one banner, the more slots you purchase for the banner the more impression the banner will receive.   Each slot is equally displayed. In other words each slot receives the same number of impressions. For example once Slot 1 is displayed it moves down to the bottom of the rotation until each slot above it is displayed.

Sandy Discussion

So, here we are Sandy is here.  It is really funny how changing jobs from commission to salary changes the perception. When I was a salaried road warrior, I used to beam with joy while seeing those clowns on Weather Channel acting like it's the end of the world. Now, I am a salaried guy working

Another Blow to Professional Adjusting

Xactware and ServiceMaster have teamed up to offer insurance carriers a contents estimating service.  Now the carriers are using restoration contractors to handle contents claims.  Pretty soon there will be nothing for property adjusters to do except review and pay contractor invoices.

Fee Schedules

I think someone should have done this a long time ago.  Let's start a list of fee schedules from different carriers and their preferred IA firms.  Everyone should know what companies pay IA's instead of having to learn the hard way.  Anyone have several 2010 fee schedules to start?&nb

Your Reading Files

Your closed files are the best example of your work. When you are looking at all the vendors who are not seeking your commitment during this very slow period ask permission to email 5-10 of your best work. The narrative reports will get their attention.
