Have you or your clients ever wondered how listings end up in the Flexmls portal news feed? The simple answer is that the news feed is based on subscriptions that are attached to searches.

Once you set up a subscription for a client, they will begin receiving emails based on new activity within their search. This is also true if a client sets up their own subscription through their portal.

The news feed section of the client’s portal will reflect all listings that have been emailed to them through a subscription. You can control some of the content that displays by adjusting the news feed settings in portal preferences, which can be found in your Flexmls menu.

Whether you or the client start the subscription, you can control the activity that triggers a notification within Default Subscription Settings, also found within portal preferences.
