Base & Flex: new custom listing tags enables custom website searches

In Base office administrators can already create custom fields via settings / customise / listings, which are then made available on the listing description tab for all agents. This adds flexibility to the listing capture forms.

Custom listing tags configuration

You can now also configure custom tags per description field which will allows you to further refine the capturing with some set options. Simply create a field, click on it and configure the available tags that will be displayed to your users, e.g. here we've configured our own farm types, as we are specialising in farms and want to categories our listings even further:

In the sample below, we've configured security features:

Here we specialise in new developments, and would like to classify listings per phase and views:

Mandate capture, selecting tags

Once you hit the save button the tags will be available to all your users on the listing capture form / extra tab. Users can simply click on 'add tags' and a popup will display with your configured tags. Here we are defining our development as a 'Phase 1, Mountain View' listing:

Filtering and displaying tags on your Flex website

You can now integrate these tags into your Flex real estate website to make highly configurable searches. e.g. here we are giving users the option to filter by farm type we've configured, when they click on this the relevant listings will be displayed. This was done in the menu, but can be implemented in banners and other links too.

Here we've created a menu link structure for a new development, and broken it down to sea and mountain view units we've configured, which will show matching listings:

If you run a custom Flex site, we can also integrate these tags into listing display views.

These new configurable fields with tags opens up the possibilities on what you can do on your Flex website and create a more personal and customised experience for your buyers.
