We know this is a big change and that’s why we are here to get you prepared.
FULL SEARCH WILL BE GOING AWAY ON NOVEMBER 18
With the Full Search being sunset on November 18, we don’t want you to worry because the Quick Search can do everything the Full Search does and more. And we are here to get you ready.

Why was the decision made to remove full search?
After reviewing the data, only 2,704 subscribers out of 40,000 are using Full Search more than once a month. Talking to our Agent Advisory Group, other agents and weighing the pros/cons of this change – a decision was made to remove the Full Search to focus efforts on enhancing the rest of the system.
Why wasn’t I asked?
In short, we asked many of your peers. We hold focus groups, task forces, and receive suggestions directly from subscribers who give us feedback on changes. Many changes start from subscriber suggestions (example: co-listing agents being able to edit listings). We talked to many subscribers about Full Search before reaching our decision. In addition, the data shows that only 2,407 out of 40,000 use Full Search more than once a month.
I didn’t know this was happening. How can you just turn it off and not tell me?
If you have used Full Search at least once a month, we have sent a total of 12 emails on the topic starting in January to now. A warning was also placed directly in Flexmls on 6/23 on the Full Search screen. Additionally, information was spread via webinars, Facebook ads and office meetings.
What will happen to my saved Full Searches?
Any existing Full Searches will remain. The next time you access them they will be in Quick Search format.
Will Subscriptions and Portals connected to Full Searches still work?
Yes, since the searches will remain intact the subscriptions and portals will still work.
