Search Tool Tutorial
How does it look?
When you activate the Omnisearch Creator, your clients can make a search like this:
And the listings that match their search criteria will show up:
How to set it up:
1. Set up the address settings
Select the property types of each MLS for which you want addresses added to the search bar
If your MLS is not available, send an email to email@example.com telling us what MLS and property type addresses should be displayed.
2. Fill in the placeholder text
This is the first box that shows up in the Omnisearch Creator set up:
This is the text that will show up in the search bar, it will serve as a guide for users so that they know what they have to search:
3. Customize the bar
It's worth noting that you can click on as many fields as you'd like in the "Disable Fields", only one "Property Type", and can toggle the "open new tab" on and off as you'd like.
Choose which fields you want to Disable. If you want any field to NOT show up on the search bar, click on it.
If you click on...
None: A regular search bar will be generated (like the one above).
Buy and Sell Tabs: The search bar will have Buy, Rent, and Sell tabs above the bar.
The Buy and Rent tabs will work in the same way, but if you click on "Sell", this page will show up:
If clients fill in this Home Valuation form, they will receive a report.
Dropdown menu: The bar will include a "Select Property Type" dropdown menu.
Open New Tab: If you click on this button, when clients click on the search button after filling out the search criteria, the properties will automatically open up in a new tab.
Sort By: The bar will include a "Sort By" dropdown menu.
If you activate this button, the bar will include a "Status" dropdown menu. You can select the options that will be disabled in the dropdown menu.
For this example, we disabled the status "Short Sale Pending".
You can add one advanced search field to your omnisearch, just select the MLS and Property Type to display the available searching fields. For this example, we will select "Property Sub Type" and click on "Save Advanced Field".
The bar will include a "Property Sub Type" dropdown menu.
4. Copy and paste the code
Once you're happy with your selection, click on the "Copy Code" button. The code will be automatically copied to your clipboard. You can now paste it in the section of your page where you want the search bar to appear.
The widget code will change depending on the selected property types per MLS.
