Messaging And Notes Will Be Removed From Quick Search

Aug 10, 2021

As part of the continuing effort to refine and modernize Quick Search, we’re removing the private note icon and the Messages tab from the search page to reduce visual clutter. Based on data collected by FBS, usage of these features has been steadily declining. By retiring redundant or little-used resources, we can focus on creating and maintaining industry-leading software that helps you get your job done.

Note: Messaging will remain available via My Messages; only the Quick Search Messages tab will be removed.

When Will It Change?
This update will be available on August 26, 2021.

What Will Change?
With this change, the private note icon, which allows members to create notes that are visible only to themselves, will be removed from Quick Search.

The Messages tab will also be removed from Quick Search. The Messages tab contains the same information as the My Messages page in Flexmls.

Messages and existing private notes will still be accessible via My Messages. Private notes have “Note” in the Who column on the My Messages page.
