We’re tidying up the Launchpad this month by removing duplicative buttons without removing products or services.
Below is a summary of the cleanup, and although changes start on November 2, this project will continue through the upcoming weeks:
- MLSU, Trakstar Learn, Live Training, and How-To Videos will be moved to the MLSU Training button
- Policy and Rules and Regs buttons will be moved to The MLS Rule Book button
- Social media buttons update: Pinterest, Etsy and Google+ buttons will be removed. LinkedIn and Instagram will be linked to the matching MLS accounts
Launchpad Login and Logout Update
Last month, we announced that we would debut an updated look for the Launchpad login and logout pages. NNRMLS and our vendor partner CoreLogic are working together to bring these updated pages to life. This project is still in the queue and we will notify you as soon as the new pages have launched.
Updated Withheld Listing Form
We updated the Acknowledgement and Authorization to Withhold Listing Form in order to clarify to all parties (Seller, Agent and Broker), the purpose of the form, and the limitations of the use of withheld listings under the Clear Cooperation Policy.
The updated form is scheduled to be live in TransactionDesk the first week of November 2021.
Updates to the form include four new areas requiring seller initials, additional space for up to four seller initials and signatures, and a link to the NNRMLS Withheld Listing Portal.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES UPDATES
Paragon version 5.86 Available Mid-Month
Paragon MLS has new updates to its Desktop and Connect platforms that are scheduled to launch on November 17! Details about the new 5.86 version will be explained in our upcoming Paragon MLS Late-Fall Updates blog later this month. We will update all members via email and social media when this blog is released.
MLS Tax Suite Comparables Update Sneak Peek!
We wanted to give you an exclusive sneak peek at the new Comparables enhancement that CRS Data will be adding to its MLS Tax Suite product later this month or early next month!
These innovative upgrades will provide you with new ways to view, edit and control how reports are generated within the comparables module of the MLS Tax Suite.
We obtained some screenshots of the new comparables tool that you can view here.

Classic Authentisign Reminder
Classic Authentisign moves to a read-only state on December 2, 2021. This means you will still be able to access the material you created with Authentisign Classic but will no longer be able to use it for new signing creation. New Authentisign will continue to be the quickest and easiest way to sign or get signatures. The new Authentisign is simple yet sophisticated. It gives your clients a modern experience and a smile once their contracts are finalized. It gives you a smooth experience from start to finish, so you can get great results. And you can’t get it anywhere else. Check out our Meet the NEW Authentisign blog post here.
Our team and leadership strive to implement updates that will help foster a trusted and cooperative real estate marketplace! Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or submit a comment below.
