REsearch 6 Update: Tabs for Faster Switching

emailbannernew-21-whatsnew

The enhancements and improvements to REsearch 6 continue. Among the latest updates, we are excited to be re-introducing tabs in REsearch to save time and clicks to switch between views in the system!

  • Tabbed View: Great feedback from members inspired us to bring back one of the ‘power tools’ of REsearch, with some notable improvements. Now, without having to click into and then back out of different views, a series of tabs will now appear along the top of the screen so you can switch between them instantly.

    And in addition to quickly jumping between MLS, TMK, Photo, and other screens, there is a ‘Recent’ tab that can quickly take you back to pages that you’ve previously viewed.

  • Better Printing: Refinements for TMK Full and MLS One-Line displays.
  • Market IQ Improvements: REsearch links are correctly removed from copy, basket, and other exports.

These changes follow earlier collections of enhancements including email and sorting improvements and upgrades for photos and popular formats.

This is the last batch of enhancements for 2015, but we have more great things coming in the new year, including new and improved market statistics. Stay tuned for more good news! We always welcome your feedback, and you can track issues that we’re working on through the ‘Known Issues‘ list on our knowledge base.

Mahalo, and have a wonderful New Year’s holiday weekend!

Year-End Billing Reminder

If you have anything pending with us (such as with membership or accounting), or plan to submit account changes or forms, please make sure it is submitted no later than Monday, December 28, 2015 to ensure it is processed before the end of the year.

Because our office will be closed on Friday, January 1, the next billing date for Credit Card and ACH Customers is Monday, January 4, 2016. If you receive an invoice, your payment is also due on that date.

If you are going inactive or decide to leave an office and discontinue MLS service, your broker must send us a copy of the DCCA change form. You can fax it to (808) 524-6874 or email it tosueann@hiinfo.com.
