The Diverse Solutions development team worked hard to create a brand new version of our mapping IDX search, which launched this morning.  dsSearchAgent version 3.5 is the latest version of our flagship IDX product and includes a host of new features to make it easier than ever to add MLS listings to your real estate website to capture leads.

This morning we updated all existing dsSearchAgent users to version 3.5.  Here are some highlights of changes and new IDX search features we included in our dsSearchAgent v3.5 release…

What’s New?

Changes to the IDX front end
(These are new features your IDX visitors will notice right away)

  • Updated look and feel for the search and map interfaces
    We improved layout throughout and added clearer call to action buttons to improve usability and increase lead conversions.  Pages are more responsive for varying screen sizes, our full screen option is easier to find and use, and other big and small improvements were made throughout to provide your visitors a better IDX search experience.

  • NEW Polygon Search button
    Now users can draw a custom shape on the map to filter for IDX listings in a specific area, making it easy to hone in on specific islands, search along a metro or train route, or even filter for homes along the coastline.

  • NEW “Omnibox” location field on the “Quick Search Plus” module
    Your quick search widget will now accept cities, communities or zip codes from a single location field

Changes in your IDX admin
(These are new features and tools found in your Control Panel admin area.)

  • NEW custom link copier
    We’ve added the ability to copy custom links in Control Panel to create sets of similar links quickly and easily
  • NEW email validation option
    You now have the option to require visitors to validate their email addresses during registration
  • Improved custom link functionality for widgets
    Now you can use your custom search links in a wider variety of search modules
  • Improved mobile user data reporting
    We’ve added more user data from your mobile users, now viewable on the IDX Report
  • And much more!

You’ll want to login to your Control Panel to setup and customize these features to take full advantage of v3.5.

    Just checking out the control panel. Liking the ability to setup IDX pages for open houses… and including ‘sold’ properties!

      Hopefully there’s no overlap when choosing both of those criteria :)

        Yeah, that sentence structure wasn’t right. Looking to add searches for open houses & closed sales – but not in the same search. :-)
