Listing updates will now be put in a News Feed specific to each client. The News Feed contains all listings that have been sent to a contact via Subscriptions. The news feed is accessed as the default screen when following a generic link to the portal or when a client clicks the View Listing link from an ASAP scheduled email. The new feed is bypassed when a client clicks a link tied to a daily / weekly / monthly email.
When viewing the News Feed:
All updates are in one place.
The News Feed shows all new and changed listings, across all Subscriptions / Auto E-mails.
Seen / Unseen listing changes are denoted.
The News Feed creates a record of all the listings that have been sent to the customer over time, even listings that no longer match search criteria.
The list view will show exactly what change prompted the listing to be sent as part of the Subscription.
Pro Tip: When looking at a client’s Portal by clicking “View Portal” under Contacts -> Contact Management, the view is not an exact replica of what the client sees. For an agent, the branding menu on the left hand side is collapsible, so the full screen is available to work in. When a client logs into the Portal, the agent’s contact information and branding is always expanded on the left hand side of the screen.
