Welcome to the Q & A column where MRED brokers, agents and appraisers get answers to their questions, right from the horse's mouth, every Tuesday.
Do you have a great question for inclusion in next Tuesday's Ask MrEd? Send your questions to askmred@MREDLLC.com. Don't worry, we'll supply the answers. We will choose one question to include every week and that person will receive a couple of cups of coffee on us, i.e. a $25 Starbucks Gift Card (enough for some oats on the side). And every month we will choose a "Best Question of the Month" winner. Not only will that person get some attention in this email but MRED will come out to his or her office's next staff meeting and serve coffee and donuts on MRED. Don't worry, we'll pony up!
Congratulations to this week's winner, Sharon Burge of Prudential Rubloff in Chicago! A $25 Starbucks Gift Card is on the way to you. Welcome to the Winner's Circle! Here's the winning question:
Question: "How can I set up connectMLS so that the results of a search always come up as Full Agent no matter how I search? Whether it's a search I have set up through search activity or market activity, or just plain old search under the Search tab, it is very annoying to always have to scroll through the menu to select Full Agent. It goes without saying that I would want to see as much info on a listing as possible."
Answer: I'd never want you to speak unless you had something to say. There are certain search/report generators that use a Cross Property (All) search. The system has a default report format for each property type search. For Cross Property (All) it is the Open Page Residential. However, all defaults can be changed.
Click the Set Up tab and then click Search & Report defaults near the bottom.
Select Full Agent report for Cross Property (All)
Before you save all your changes and like me, forget how to get here or even remember that such settings exist in connectMLS, take a look at some of the other settings to see if your user experience might improve with other default changes!
