Updates to Your My REcolorado Listings Metrics Report

A recent enhancement to the My REcolorado Listing Metrics report allows you to view IDX metrics. These metrics provide tracking information for both the full and mobile IDX sites. Metrics are shown for each IDX vendor for the sites where your listings are displayed. The report displays the top 10 IDX channels and gives you the option to see the activity for all IDX sites. 

To access your report, login to CONNECT and click the “My REcolorado Listing Metrics” button in the REcolorado Statistics and Reports section. You will see a new browser window open with your My REcolorado Listing Metrics report.

*Please Note: If your office has opted out of IDX, no metrics will be visible in the IDX report
