Conversion Date Milestones
– System parallel begins (parallel is the time you will have access to both databases)
December 9th (9am Eastern)
– Read Only for both databases.
Read only means SCR and SC databases are both still accessible, but adding or editing listings is not available. This time allows for final listing updates.
December 11th (9am Eastern)
– Go-Live, working exclusively in new database
What Does it Mean for Me?
Parallel updates between SCR (old database) and SC (new database) will begin on Monday, November 27th. During parallel, you will have access to the new database, but listing maintenance will not begin until your go live date. Setting Flexmls into parallel mode means that FBS will update listings within an hour of that listing being added or edited in SCR (old database).
During the parallel period, you will want to recreate all your CMAs, Portal Invites, custom Quick Search Templates and Views in the new database. These will not be transferred over. Contacts, Saved Searches, and Saved Subscriptions will be transferred to the new database.
Note: When accessing multiple Flexmls databases at one time, we recommend using different browsers (ie. Chrome and Firefox).
Do You Have an IDX Link on Your Website?
Your IDX feeds will switch over to MLS Grid instead of getting new feeds through Flexmls. If you currently a subscriber to Flexmls IDX SmartFrame or WordPress Plugin please refer to this page to ensure your Flexmls-Connected solutions are uninterrupted after the conversion.
Below we have included some videos that will walk you through recreating CMAs, Portals and Quick Search Templates.
