  • New Updates for Listing Display Controls Now Available: 6/14/2018

    by | Jun 14, 2018
    We were delighted to see that our latest update was very well received based on all of your feedback. In particular, the new listing display control has been deemed very useful. As part of the feedback, however, some agents expressed difficulty with reading the options buttons when highlighted in yellow. To address this, we have changed the color from yellow to blue in order to make the controls easier to read when selected.
     
    We truly appreciate the feedback we receive from MLS users and welcome all of your suggestions as we continue to move the MLS into the future.

  • New Listing Display Controls Now Available

    by | Jun 08, 2018

    The options for sorting, hiding, and removing listing search results, which previously required several clicks to access under the "Options" button, have been moved to a conveniently located options bar that displays above all search results. In addition, the page's save options have been moved directly to the MLS actions bar for improved functionality and ease of access when working with searches and results.

    Changes for the new controls include the following:

    • A "Save" button is now available on the MLS action bar for convenient access when saving searches and listings.
    • "Show", "Remove", and "Sort" controls are now accessible from the listing display options bar on search results pages, allowing MLS users to quickly and efficiently organize their search results.
    • "Show" and "Remove" controls have been enhanced to allow a choice between checked and unchecked listings.

    As part of this enhancement, a new "Listing Display Options" video tutorial has been added to the Rapattoni MLS Learning Center. Please click here or click the image below to view the short video.

    by | Jun 08, 2018

    The links on the "Revise Listing" page have been updated to leverage individual access rights for more granular control. With this update, the "Listing Modify" access right has been separated so that users can be assigned individual rights for the MLS as needed.

    A new "Revise Map Pin Placement" access right is now available beneath the "Listing Attachments Query" access right on Manage Member Access form, allowing association staff to manage user access to Map Pin Placement features on an individual basis.

    Please note that following the deployment, all current user access rights will remain unchanged.

    PLEASE NOTE: All features announced in this notification, other than those items included under the "Staff Only" section, will be announced to your agents in the broadcast notice that will be posted after the update. While we do our best to ensure that the features included in this report are relevant to every MLS, we cannot guarantee that all features and improvements are applicable to your MLS. If you find that an item included on this list should not be announced to your agents, please contact your staff support representative as soon as possible to have the item removed.

    We will post the following broadcast notice to inform your members of these new features following the update:
