New Setting Allows More Control Over
Reverse Prospecting 

On March 22nd, you will have the ability to control whether Reverse Prospecting is enabled by default when adding new Contacts. The default will be controlled by a new setting under General Preferences, and can save you time so you don't have to manually check (or uncheck) the Reverse Prospecting box after adding a Contact.

Reverse Prospecting can be a useful tool to use in order to obtain broader exposure for your listings. The process determines which other members have contacts with searches that match your listing and provides you with a list of members to inform of the matches.

To update the setting, use your menu to access General Preferences.


In the General Preferences screen, scroll to the new setting, 'Default for Enable Reverse Prospecting checkbox on Add Contact'.

If set to Yes, the checkbox for Reverse Prospecting will be checked automatically whenever you add a new Contact. This lets other agents to notify you if they have a property that matches any searches attached to your Contact.

If set to No, the checkbox for Reverse Prospecting will not be checked by default whenever you add a new C ontact. This will exclude the Contact from the Reverse Prospecting process.

Note: changing this setting does not affect existing Contacts (Contacts added before the update). It only applies when adding new Contacts. Existing Contacts can be updated on a per-Contact basis when editing contacts in Contact Management.
