Release Notes – 2020.10.22

Highlights

  • New IDX setting for pending
    The definition of "pending" differs between MLSs and agents. We define pending as 1. under contract and 2. no longer taking backup offers or showing the property. This new setting allows individual accounts to choose instead to "define any under contract listing as pending" for search purposes, effectively filtering them out from normal active listing searches. This definition will also affect search restrictions if they have chosen to exclude pending listings.
  • New badges
    Additionally, we are now showing badges for "Under Contract" and "Backups" on listings, so even if the agent does not use the above setting, you can now more easily differentiate these when mixed in with other "active" listings.
  • MLS Info - disclaimers
    Support now has greater control over MLS disclaimers. The copyright notice that we previously automatically inserted is now part of the editable disclaimer body.
  • MLS Info - no logo option
    Support can now mark MLSs as having no logo - which will remove the logo both from listing cards and from the disclaimer. If the MLS requires us to use the "Broker Reciprocity" logo, then that should be uploaded AS the logo.
  • Market Report Leads - capture more info
    We now pass along more of the contextual info for leads captured from Market Report pages, including the address they entered (if they came from a market report search widget). And Market Report page views are reported as website activity.
  • Performance Optimizations for large sites
    React websites with large numbers of pages (500+) were having performance problems affecting site navigation. There is now a caching layer in place to mitigate this.
