CRMLS upgraded the frameable IDX links available via the IDX Link Generator on CRMLS.org.
Whether or not you use IDX on your website, you don’t need to do anything. Many IDX interfaces improved on Tuesday, August 27th, 2019.
IDX links generated directly through Matrix, through approved IDX vendors, and via RESO-certified data feeds were not be affected. Only links generated through the IDX Link Generator on CRMLS.org from 2012 onward changed.
Here’s what the former IDX interface looks like:
And here’s the new-and-improved IDX Plus version:
Looking at improving your IDX solutions? CRMLS offers multiple options:
IDX Standard (no additional cost): Generate a frameable IDX link through CRMLS Matrix. These frameable links offer functionality above and beyond the old CRMLS.org links, including options for map searches and contact request forms.
To get started: Login to CRMLS Matrix. Click on “My Matrix” > “Settings” > “IDX Configuration.”
IDX Plus (no additional cost): Generate a frameable IDX link through Absolute Strategic Agent, a CRMLS Marketplace vendor. These links with Google Maps offer all CRMLS and data share listings, all features available in IDX Standard, plus multiple languages, an office listings link, and school data.
To get started: Visit the IDX Link Generator on CRMLS.org. Need info on how to implement these links? Click here to visit our IDX Resources page.
IDX Premium with Full Website ($29/month for CRMLS users only – a 58% discount): Generate indexable premium IDX links through Absolute Strategic Agent, a CRMLS Marketplace vendor. This option comes with an optional Premium Website at no additional cost with purchase.
To get started: Visit https://crmlsdemo.com/ to view a site demo and https://strategicagent.com/ for setup.
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.
