Matrix 360 Tips
Printing Mailing Labels
Now that Matrix 360 is up and running, several members have asked how to produce mailing labels here versus in Realist. It is very easy to do. Just remember to print and then you will see options for various versions of labels with owner or occupant name, property, and/or tax mailing address options. Print whatever works for your mailing.
Here are the steps:

1.   In Matrix , click on Search and then Public Records
2.   Click on the ‘ Exclude Do Not Mail ’ field to avoid mailing to anyone who is on that list (Note: There are not that many, but still good to avoid them.)
3.   Enter any other search criteria and then click on Results
4.   Select All or whichever addresses you wish to include in your labels
5.   Click on Print and then select the label format you would like to use (all are listed below the dotted line). Click on Print to PDF. (Avery 5160 labels)

ShowingTime for the MLS - Tech Tuesday
May 7 Session: ShowingTime Drop in Day

Drop in and meet with GRAR Tech Committee volunteers and GRAR Staff to get your questions answered and or to learn more about ShowingTime for the MLS .

During the first hour we will start with a panel discussion for 20 - 30 minutes including 4 or 5 agents talking about how they use ShowingTime for their business, have some general discussion, Q&A, and then help getting the app added to your device(s) for any that need help with that. We will then wrap up with any loose ends at 2:30pm. Come and see how your fellow agents are using this tool successfully to save time!
GRAR’s Technology Committee sponsors Tech Tuesdays monthly! Join us for an informal session about various topics to help you get a better handle on some of our technology benefits and other tech topics.
