Auto Populate Property Images from MLS into Design Templates
November 23, 2022

When creating templates for your users, you can set images in your template to replace with property photos pulled from your MLS feed. To do so, be sure to set up images to replace with property photos (right click your image, choose “Image Replace” > “Property” > “Image 1”. Be sure to set your images in chronological order). Once your template is ready, open the design and choose properties from your MLS. As you choose each property, you will be able to add in a certain amount of images depending on how the template is set up. When all MLS data is set, choose to create your template and your photos will automatically populate into your design. If you want to add in new photos from your property, just start a new search or open the image library for that property to initiate the same search and you can pull in more photos there.

Compliance Manager 2

Not only can you find the class you want through class name or property, but you can also search the values applied to a class – like text values (ex: blue, hidden, none), color values (ex: RGBA, HEX, or HSB), or numerical values (ex: 100, 10).

Now you can search classes by their property, color, or name all from the Style Manager.
