25 Form Simplicity FAQs

26 Getting Started Q: Where do I go to access Form Simplicity? A: Q: Do I download or install anything for Form Simplicity? A: Form Simplicity requires the most up to date version of Adobe Reader. It may be downloaded for free at When on the Form Simplicity login page there will be a system checklist displayed below the login button. If all criteria has green checkmarks then your system can properly use the electronic forms. If you are using Google Chrome or Foxfire for your browser you may have to adjust your browser settings.

27 Q: What is the cost for Form Simplicity? A: Form Simplicity access has an annual cost that coincides with each calendar year. There is a standard fee for the office, which includes the brokers use and an additional fee for each agent. Regardless of whether an agent will be using the software (or how frequently it will be used) the agent fee is required for each licensed agent at the time of purchase. The annual cost for Form Simplicity access is never prorated. Check the purchase agreement for current pricing. Q: Where can I purchase Form Simplicity? A: The purchase agreement and order form can be found at Information is available on the member side of the website which requires an active NRDS# to log in and view. Publications Tab then 2015 Forms Order

28 Q: Who can purchase Form Simplicity? A: Access is sold to an office and is to be purchased by the broker of that office. Form Simplicity is only available to members/offices that have an active status membership with an Arkansas local board or ARA directly. Q: Does my Form Simplicity automatically renew for the next year or will I be sent a bill? A: Form Simplicity access ends on the final day of the calendar year. You are not automatically renewed or billed. If you would like to continue use of the software and have access to the new forms that will be released for the upcoming year then a new purchase agreement and payment must be submitted. Sales for the upcoming year usually begin a month or two before the end of the current year so that orders can be placed and service is not interrupted.

29 Q: My office or I have purchased Form Simplicity for the current year, how do I get a login/password to use it? A: Go to Click the Forgot/Register Password? link above the Login button. Enter your First and Last Name. Select Arkansas as the state if it is not already selected and hit the search button. If your name appears on the list after the search select it to continue. Then, enter your email address and a registration link will be sent to that email account in order to set up your password. The email address entered must match what your local board currently has on file for you. These steps can also be followed if a user needs to change their password or cannot remember it in order to login.

30 Q: I recently changed offices and when I log in to Form Simplicity it still shows my old office logo/information, how do I get that updated? A: When changing offices or opening your own there are a few steps that need to be taken in order to update your information. Contacting the Arkansas Real Estate Commission would be your first step for transferring your license or setting up your new office. Once all paperwork has been filed and processed with the AREC, the next step would be to contact your local board to update your membership information. If you are a member of any secondary boards, please contact them and make them aware of your changes as well. Once your local board has updated your membership records, please allow up to 48 hours for the change to be reflected on your electronic forms. Since Form Simplicity is sold to an office, your Form Simplicity access will not continue if moving to an office that has not purchased the electronic forms for the year.
