We just couldn’t wait to launch another collection of enhancements to REsearch, again inspired by member feedback! Here’s the list, and we’ll introduce each upgrade to you in greater detail next week!
1. Google Street View
You can now quickly bring up an interactive Google Street View window in REsearch! We’ve added a new Street View icon, and grouped it with the Map and Tax Map icons. Clicking it will open Google’s Street View panorama when available for an address. Once open, you can zoom or rotate the panorama, navigate up and down the street, expand to a full-screen view, and even click through to open Google Maps in a new window. Learn more!
2. Import Contacts
You can now import your contacts into REsearch to make them easier to look up while in the system and to set up as Prospects. You can also choose to skip or replace duplicate contacts when importing. Contact importing is currently supported for users of Microsoft Outlook andGoogle Gmail, with more systems planned! Learn more!
3. Map Search Exclusion Areas
You can now select or draw an area to exclude from a map search! For example, after drawing a map search to cover an entire neighborhood, you can choose to omit matches in an exclusion area. Just select a boundary and choose whether to “Include” and “Exclude” matches within. As always, you can have multiple areas drawn for a map search. Learn more!
4. Combine Offices in Market IQ
You can now combine offices in Market IQ! Brokers with multiple offices can now run Market IQ reports that combine sets of offices together, merging sales and other numbers, to build different performance reports and see how they compare to other offices. Just group the office numbers you’d like to combine within parentheses in the Market IQ “Search By Office ID” form. Learn more!
