Validate Address Location
The Validate Address Location is the latest enhancement added to the listing edit module. This is known as Change Geocode in Paragon Desktop. Here’s how it works!
From the listing edit page, click the overflow menu, and select Validate Address Location and the map will display with a property pin and a NEW Accuracy Indicator.
If the Accuracy Indicator is red, it means that the geocode accuracy is something less than 100%. If it is green, then it’s spot on at 100% OR it has been manually placed. The goal is to provide you with an easy-to-see visual display of the geocode quality.
|The accuracy indicator includes a tooltip icon that when clicked will display more information about the rating.|
Geocode Using Address Search
You can try manually entering the address to see if the pin moves by clicking the address search icon, entering the address and clicking the search icon again to get the result. By the way, this map search is the equivalent of the “Center Map and Zoom on this Address” in Paragon Desktop.
If the default Road view doesn’t provide enough information, switch to any one of seven views using the NEW Map Types feature!
Geocode by Moving Map Pin
You can move the pin manually by clicking on the pin with a mouse or using your finger to drag the pin to the new location. After moving the pin, the Accuracy Indicator will change to green and read “Manually Placed.” If you’re happy with the location, click APPLY. You will receive a prompt that the changes were applied but that you still need to save to retain the settings.
Warning and Error Validation
In addition to being able to manually validate your location, the listing edit module will also check for any errors or warnings related to your address upon saving a listing.
NOTE: It is mandatory to manually move the map pin to save the listing.
Contact Notification Options
Prior to this release, contact notiﬁcation settings are only adjustable in Paragon Desktop. Now, Paragon Connect users can adjust a variety of notiﬁcation options. Enable/disable your notiﬁcations, change notiﬁcation triggers, update when your notiﬁcations are sent and more. Below breaks down the diﬀerent options.
While viewing a saved search card, you will notice a new three-dot overflow menu icon. This icon contains a menu with all your notification options. It includes the following:
|• Disable/Enable Collab Center
• Email Options
• Notification Triggers
• Notification Time Frames
• Resend Notification
• Delete Search
Note: Overflow is only available on saved searches for Collaboration Center.
You now can enable/disable saved searches from displaying on your Clients Collaboration Center site. When you disable the saved search, it removes the activity chart and moves it to the bottom of the list. You can then re-enable the saved search at any time by going to the overﬂow menu and tapping “Enable Collaboration Center.”
Email options allow you to edit who receives any email notification updates from the Collaboration Center. It also allows you to add a custom message that is displayed each time a notification email is sent.
|• Add or modify primary recipients
• Add or modify Cc recipients
• Add or modify Bcc recipients
• Modify email subject title
• Add or modify the Custom message
Notification triggers allow you to set what type of notifications your clients will receive. Do they want to be notified of just new matches? Maybe it is new matches, price changes, status changes, etc. The notification trigger option will allow you to set what type of notifications your clients will receive on each saved search.
• New Matches
The Notification time frame allows you to edit how long the notification is active. By default, when you set up a notification, the date range is set to a year. You cannot set the date range to be longer than a year but if your notification is about to expire you can extend it to a full 12 months.
The time frame option also contains your client and agent notification frequency options. You can choose whether the notifications are set to off, immediately, or recurring. If set to recurring, you can set the notification time and when these notifications are sent. Below are the three frequency options:
• Weekly (choose days)
There are times when you no longer need a saved search. When this occurs, you can now use the “Delete Search” option from the saved search card overflow. This will remove the contact from the saved search and delete the card. A confirmation will display to make sure you want to delete the search.
There are times when a prospective buyer cannot find or did not receive the Collaboration Center welcome email. This welcome email contains the information needed to use and access the Collaboration Center.
When this occurs, you can now go to that saved search for that contact and resend the invitation. The resend invitation contains an email dialogue where you can add additional email addresses and provide a custom message.
New Detail Report in Contact Manager Module
As we continue to optimize Paragon Connect, we are pleased to introduce our updated detail report. It is important to note that the like the new thumbnail view, this updated detail report can only be found within the “Contact Module” at this time. Additional view updates are being analyzed and developed and we did not want to interrupt your daily business until key these updates are complete.
This report is like the previous version only there are some significant upgrades. Let’s look at the two main updates.
The loading of the report has been a major focus of the new React detail report. The goal is for that report to open as quickly as possible. This allows you to view full listing data quickly!
• Current Detail Report: 4-5 Seconds
• New Detail Report: 1-2 Seconds
Larger, darker fonts
There are several updates to the font type, styles, colour and more. A new font is being used that is a thicker type of font making it easier to read. The font colour was also darkened to help make it easier to read. Also, the font sizes were increased. Overall, the legibility of the detail report has been greatly improved.
