Transition From Full Search To Quick Search

Jun 22, 2020

We want you to have the best possible Search experience in Flexmls. That’s why, on November 18, 2020, Full Search (Legacy) will be discontinued, and everyone will transition to Quick Search. If you don’t already use Quick Search, we understand that change can be hard. But don’t worry, Quick Search can do everything Full Search (Legacy) can do and MORE. We’ll be here every step of the way over the next 5 months with tons of training, support and resources.

When Will It Change?
Full Search (Legacy) will be no longer available in Flexmls starting on November 18, 2020. 

Why is Full Search (Legacy) Being Removed?
Quick Search is the most powerful searching tool in Flexmls today and Full Search (Legacy) is starting to show its age. The layout is dated, it is not mobile friendly, and some newer fields cannot be displayed in the Full Search (Legacy).

What Happens To My Saved Full Searches?
They stay the same! The name of the saved search will be unchanged and the search criteria and results will be the same. The only difference will be that when you edit a previously saved Full Search, you’ll edit it from the Quick Search screen.
Will My Subscriptions & Portals Still Work?
Yes, since the searches will remain intact the subscriptions and portals will still work. Your clients should not experience any disruption in service!
