The IDX App allows you to control settings related to MLS and IDX implemented on your site.
It’s important to note that there are different options available that are dependent on whether your IDX is through iHomeFinder or Easy Agent Pro. This article covers the IDX App when Easy Agent Pro is your IDX provider. If iHomeFinder is your IDX vendor, please refer to the iHomeFinder version.
To access your IDX App, you’ll click Apps in the top menu of your Dashboard and navigate click the IDX App icon in the ‘Lead Capture Apps’ section.
Once inside the IDX App, you’ll see a menu of options available on the left. Within each of those options, are relevant settings that you’re able to change and update.
The Lead Capture settings allow you to determine if a site visitor will be prompted to enter their contact information prior to being able to access listings and Instafarm pages.
The IDX Path section allows you to connect a Path (created by you in the Paths App) to your listings. (For more information about setting up a Path and using the Paths App, click here)
The Default Search section allows you to create a specific market (or group of listings) that will always appear by default on your LeadSite’s MLS Search Page.
If you’d like more information on creating a market, but haven’t watched the video for the IDX App, you can watch the video (timestamped to market creation) here.
(Video coming soon!)
The Search Text section allows you to control the text settings for the search form and the text on the Advanced Filters form button.
Request Listing Update
If you’ve had to make a change to one of your listings with your Board, you’ll find there is sometimes a delay in that update reflecting on your LeadSite. While we update listings in a timely manner, there may be times that you need your site updated immediately. In such a case, you can enter the MLS Listing ID here to update the listing and have the change reflected immediately.
If you’d like a specific neighborhood or subdivision searchable on your search page, you’ll want to add the neighborhoods here. While all cities and most zip codes are available as search parameters, you’ll need to add some neighborhoods manually. If you notice that a particular neighborhood is not available, you can submit a request to make it available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an up and coming feature and will be available in the near future. Stay tuned!
