Auto save public title and public unit description.

Posted in General | No Comments »

30 July 2009

To facilitate agents collaboration, we made a minor change to the database to automatically fill in the public title and public unit descriptions when an ad is posted on an apartment.

When someone post an ad, if the public title and description does not exist, he or she either uses the default title or enter a custom one. This is strictly per account based. However, now if the public title / description is blank, the first custom title / description entered by someone in the office, will automatically be saved as the public title / description.

You can turn this feature off in your agency profile. For more information on how to share ad contents between agents, follow the link below:
How to Share Ad Title & Descriptions Between Agents

We hope this minor change will give everyone better data to work with. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns on this change.

Fixed the search speed when both POI and photos are selected.

We just found out that while searching for listings, if both photos are checked off and POI/Neighborhood are selected, the search is very very slow. This speed issue has been corrected. We apologize for any inconvenience if you ran into this before.

How to setup a listing to be always available?

29 July 2009

We made a modification to the database that the listing available date is no longer required. If the listing available date is not entered, that listing will be always available, and it will show up regardless of your available date search criteria.

For example, a large apartment complex might not send listing updates often, yet always have certain types of apartments available. To make sure their listings always show up in your search results, you can set the listings available date to empty, this way, the listings will always show up in your searches regardless of what available dates you specify.

Set a default ad template for ad posting

Typically when you post an ad, a random template (skin) is selected. Some users might want to set a default template instead. We just added the ability for you to set a default template for your account. Once a default template is set, the system will always load your default template instead of randomly selecting one.

You can set your default template in the “Agent Settings” section of your profile page. Please click on the following link for more information on how to set it up:

Sometimes after you have deleted a lead, you might want to get the information back. Or you might have accidentally deleted the wrong one. We have added the ability to see your removed leads and recover them.

There is a new “Status” drop down field in the leads search bar. When you changed it to “Removed” and do a search, your removed leads will show up. When a lead is removed, he will show up with a key icon instead of the typical trash bin icon. Clicking on the key icon will re-activate that lead. Please see screen shot below for more information:
