Condo Name Updates (Live February 28, 2022)
The Price Analysis Tool was first introduced in the last release to Paragon Classic. It can be used by agents to determine pricing by viewing the Potential Buyers of a listing. The Potential Buyers are based on current Paragon and Paragon Connect saved searches that include the property and are assigned to clients who are prospecting, i.e., they are set up for auto-notifications.
The tool can be accessed from the overflow icon in the top app bar of the full listing edit module.
Armed with the Potential Buyers, agents can enter a New Price into the interactive widget and click the Recalculate Buyers to determine the effective change on potential buyers.
Listing Edit Updates
A few exciting changes are coming to full listing edit and to prepare for them, a few changes were made to the current screen. The first was to remove the secondary navigation bar located below the top app bar. This module now allows you to use your browser controls to move back, forward, or even refresh. The second was to move the search feature to the top app bar. This will now utilize our standard search component. The final update made to this module is the addition of an overflow menu (three dots). This will house all our future LIM features. Examples: change geocode/mapping, embed videos, tour, open house, etc.
To prepare for additional features in Paragon Connect, Black Knight has made some adjustments to the overall left navigation. The tree structure found in the left navigation today is not optimized for mobile applications. To accommodate for more menu items, the tree structure was removed in favour of a new top-level page. This allows us to keep the primary navigation simple but allows for room to expand the additional content on the top-level page.
Black Knight also consolidated all the different search options available in Paragon Connect into one single menu called” Properties.” This means you have a single location now for Class-based searches, location search, Hotsheet, tour, open house, etc.
Contact – Buyer Activity
The buyer section within the contact viewer is getting a major upgrade. Before this release, the buyer activity would take you to four circles where you would find the total number of undecideds, favourites, possible, and rejected listings for a specific contact. This was a sum of all searches and archived matches, and there was no option to filter these by saved searches. Now you will see each search is broken down into its card. You can see the total number of listings, plus the different categories for each search. You can see who created the search (Agent vs Client). When the last notification was sent. You can also click on each category to see the results within each card.
This is just the beginning. Soon, you will be able to modify these searches, update the notification settings, and create a new search from this location. Below is a breakdown of a few new features.
There are additional features included with the buyer activity that is worth noting. Notifications that are disabled are displayed on the page, but the counts and links are disabled. In a future release, end-users will be able to enable/disable the from Paragon Connect.
Agent Picks (Known as Agent Recommend in Paragon Professional) are also seen on the buyer activity. This works just like a search card except these are listings you have recommended to your clients.
Finally, the buyer activity section will display a card for any legacy email notifications setup. There are no links or actions on this card other than to inform you that the search and notification are in use.
Listing Input – Enhanced Listing Congratulations Pop-Up
The Listing Congratulations Modal has been enhanced to give you more information about the property and the integrated services. This includes displaying the primary photo of the property and a description of each service and what you can use it for.
Mapping – Delete a Point on Polygon Shapes
A new feature was added to the Polygon drawing tool to allow users to delete endpoints. Previously, if you wanted to modify their polygon, they had to either move the respective points to reshape the drawing OR start over because moving all or some of the points was more work. With this enhancement, users can right-click on an endpoint and a “Delete” option will pop up. Selecting the option removes the point and the drawing updates based on the deleted point.
User Interface (UI) Updates
Updated Colors on Contact Activity Widget
We updated the colours for Comments and Searches at the top of the Contact Activity widget on the Paragon Pro home screen to match the colours used in Paragon Connect.
Default Options for Collaboration Center Emails
We cleaned up the help text for attaching the email Message Body to Collaboration Center notifications and fixed an issue where the selected message body would display on the initial Welcome email but was missing on subsequent notification emails.
Buyer Property Search – Expand Full Screen
The search feature in Collaboration Center was recently moved into one of the primary tabs on the dashboard. A new expand option is now available for those who want to search in full-screen mode. Once in full-screen mode, the expand icon changes to a reduce icon that when activated takes you back to the default layout.
Detail Report Updates
A few minor changes were made to the top header section of the Collaboration Center detail report. The header’s height was reduced, icons were grouped and aligned to the right. The close button was updated, and the price was grouped with the address information.
