Matrix Syndication Revamp

Effective September 4, 2019, the following changes have been made to the Matrix Residential Input Screen.

The Exclusion and Inclusions fields have been moved up on the page so they appear right below the Public Remarks.  Before September 4th, they appeared at the bottom of the page, below the syndication section.

All three Virtual Tour labels have been updated to include instructions as to whether agent/broker information is either allowed or not allowed.

The color of the Syndication field backgrounds has been changed to GREEN so that they appear separate from the other fields on the page.
