The work on our Go RESO project is nearly completed and the new version of REcolorado Matrix is scheduled to launch January 13!
The new Matrix will bring a lot of great enhancements, as well as some significant changes.
I’m here today to give you four quick tips you can use to make sure that you jump right in and are able to use the new version of Matrix as you start the busy buying and selling season.
#1 – Know What’s Changing
First, if you haven’t done so already, you’ll want to get a preview of what is changing. The best way to do that is to watch our webinar – Be Ready, It’s Coming, New REcolorado Matrix. Among other things, the webinar will walk you through the changes you’ll see, which include:
- A new look and new groupings of information
- New field names that match the RESO Data Dictionary, including new property types and statuses
- A new dynamic listing input process that operates more like an input wizard
- A lot of help text you can use to learn the definitions behind field names
#2 – Review New REcolorado Matrix Resources
The second thing you’ll want to do is take a look at some of the new documents we’ve updated for the new version of REcolorado Matrix. You can find the new Residential Input Form, Square Footage Companion, ABCs of Matrix Statuses, and Dictionary of Property Types in the REcolorado Resource Center. You can easily access them any time by clicking on the Resource Center button included on your CONNECT dashboard.
#3 – Prepare your Listings, Saved Searches, and Auto Emails
Third, all your listings, as well as saved searches and auto emails, will be transferred into the new system, which is great news. After the new version of Matrix has launched, we’ll ask you to check your listings to make certain you’re seeing the results you expected.
We’ve shared some helpful reference documents on our blog, along with some steps you can take now to save you time later:
#4 – Register for New REcolorado Matrix Training
Last, but certainly not least, you’ll definitely want to attend two very important training classes:
- NEW Matrix: If It Can’t be Found, It Can’t be Sold – our listing input class (2 CE)
- NEW Matrix: Accessing What You Want – our search class (2 CE)
Both of these classes have been completely revamped to walk you through the new version of REcolorado Matrix in a hands-on and step-by-step way. Even if you primarily use REcolorado Matrix to search for listings, you’ll still want to take both classes!
This is a big change and we know it’s important for you to have all the information you need. Please keep an eye on your inbox, as well as the REcolorado Professionals blog and your CONNECT popups, to make sure you have the information up until January 13 and beyond.
