Release Notes – 2023.07.06 July 6, 2023
- Transactional process infrastructure
The activation path has been rewritten to use our new transactional process infrastructure. With this release we will finally be updating the last of the major transactional paths (testdrive, direct signup, activation) to use the new infrastructure we built earlier this year to modernize these systems to make them more flexible and maintainable. Additional smaller paths will be updated and/or built anew in the future, but this is a major milestone in our efforts to make the key business processes of our application more robust and functional moving forward. As with the previous rewrites of the testdrive and direct signup paths, to begin with we’ve endeavored to keep the front end user experience as consistent as possible with the previous version of the activation system, focusing mostly on updating what happens behind the scenes to begin with.
- New generic carousel flex content blocks
It’s now possible to create a custom carousel content block in flex content where ANY kind of flex block (images, cards, etc) can be used as an item in the slider. A great many exciting new options should now be possible when creating content with the flex system!
- JSON LD / schema.org structured data
We’ve updated our application to provide hidden structured metadata for page content in an additional format that Google prefers in the hopes that this will improve indexing results. The new schema data has been added for listing content, blog content, and agent roster content.
- Remove Nearby Market Section
Added an option to hide the "nearby markets" section on market reports.

You can now create a custom carousel of Images, Cards, or whatever else you want. Any kind of Flex block can now be a carousel item.
