TransactionDESK News
Instanet has added some new features this month!
Here is a quick summary of the changes.
Document Review
  • Ability to scroll through the document to review each page
  • The removal of Next and Previous buttons; you can still jump to a specific page number
  • Page labels will now be formatted as Current Page/Total Pages
  • These updates will allow you to more easily navigate document pages and quickly complete the document review process. As an example, when merging documents together, you can now save time when reviewing the file by leveraging a continuous scroll rather than navigating page by page

Contact Import from Matrix Now Available!
You now have the ability to import your Matrix contacts into TransactionDesk. With this new functionality, you'll be able to streamline the transaction process and save valuable time. There are two ways to import:
  • Under the contacts section of a transaction, select “add” as you traditionally do and select “add contact from Matrix”.
  • Import contacts from Matrix into the contracts section of your platform. Simply navigate to the contacts section select “Add contact from Matrix”.
Supra eKey App Updated
Attention all Supra eKEY subscribers! 
There is a new app in town and if the new eKEY app did not automatically update on your device, go check out App/Play Store for an update. The long awaited update looks great! It is a completely refreshed app experience from Supra!
 
Here are some highlights of changes in the new eKEY app.
  • Modern look and feel with an Obtain Key button that is easy to reach with either left or right thumb
  • Listing information displayed after opening a keybox (if a data agreement is in place)
  • Showing details available in app (previously only for eKEY Professional subscribers)
  • Send an alert email or text to up to 3 people
  • Supports use of phone’s biometric capabilities to open a keybox
  • Supports use of Apple Watch in conjunction with iPhone to open a keybox
  • Enable entering PIN only once per day
Matrix Tip: Send Open Houses Via Email
Wondering how to get Matrix to send an auto-email when there are open houses that your client might like to check out?
The GRAR Tech Committee has a great tip for you. It is all in the search criteria.
  • In Matrix, perform your search and enter all search criteria.
  • Before finding matching listings, first add a field to your search by clicking on Add/Remove link, right below your Results icon.
  • Add the field called Active Open House Count and enter 1+ into that field.
  • Click on Results and then Save to follow the prompts to set up your auto-email.
Easy as can be and it works! No weekly updates needed.
