NNRMLS is pleased to help you stay updated on the latest enhancements to your Paragon MLS System. This update is called the 5.83 version. All enhancements are designed to help you navigate the system more easily to improve your Paragon MLS experience. Below we have provided a detailed description of the enhancements and new features.
The latest Paragon updates include minor workflow changes to Paragon Desktop, the traditional Paragon MLS system. In Paragon Connect, the new mobile-friendly compliment to the Desktop version, updates include the ability to edit a listing photo from your phone, a new texting button for easily contacting listing agents and easy access to your most recent searches! In addition, we highlight a small UI change in Collaboration Center, the client-facing portal where brokers and agents can share listings with their customers. Paragon Desktop updates are listed first, followed by enhancements to Connect and finally Collab Center.
PARAGON Desktop Updates
Preferences Wizard Updates:
To clarify the workflow in the Preferences Wizard, the Required ‘R’ icon has been added to the Name field, and the Default checkbox is selected on both the Message Body and Email Signature pages. This ensures that any changes made to these pages will be saved. The default can be changed through Preferences when additional Message Bodies or Email Signatures are created.
Tour and Open House Label Updates:
We renamed the label in the Tour and Open House reports tree from “Default T/OH” to “Default Tour/Open House.”
Paragon Connect Updates | More than Mobile
Paragon Connect is a new mobile-friendly complement to the traditional Desktop version
Accessing your last five searches
With Paragon Connect you can now access your last five searches. This is synced with Paragon Desktop so the five searches you see are the same in both systems.
Clicking a folder icon at the bottom of the screen, (folder icon not shown below), now opens a drawer, (shown below), that displays options including the last five searches you conducted in Paragon Connect and/or Desktop. Click a search to see the results.
This drawer menu can also be used to load any saved search or load your default search.
Texting Button Added to Listing Report
The Paragon Connect detail report now includes a Text button to make it easier to contact the listing agent directly from the detail report.
To set the phone number for the above-mentioned text button agents should enter the number in the mobile preferences in Paragon Desktop. The texting feature will use the phone number supplied in the mobile preference setting in Paragon Desktop.
Notice the mobile number in Paragon Classic Mobile Account Settings is different from the display number in the image above. That is because there is a separate setting in Paragon Desktop for the display number. See the second image below for the location of that setting.
Pencil Icon added to Paragon Connect for Listing Photo Upload
In Paragon Connect listing agents can now add or edit a listing photo by accessing the listing in a detail report and then clicking the new pencil icon.
In an upcoming Paragon Connect release, brokers and agents will be able to edit all details of their listings! Watch for the Full Listing Edit announcement in your email and social media.
Select Multiple Listings to Add Comps to a CMA and Listings to a Buyer Tour
It is now easier than ever to add multiple listings to a CMA or a Buyer Tour! Brokers and agents can now select multiple listings in Paragon Connect and then click the three dots in the upper right in order to see options for adding listings to a Cloud CMA or ShowingTime report!
Collaboration Center Updates
Collaboration Center- Change Search radius to an Input Field and Change Default to 1 mile/km
Collaboration Center, the consumer-facing and branded web portal that brokers and agents can share now allows the client to search by radius more easily. The old slider was switched for an input field for easy entry. Half miles can be input as “.5,” quarter miles can be input as “.25” and so on. Paragon also changed the default distance from five miles to one mile, shown below. Clients can input distances of up to 50 miles/80 km.
