Feature Requests

Welcome Rex Users!

Let us know what you really want out of the system you use in your businesses every day!

Please include as much detail as possible about what the feature is and how the feature would make your life easier – this will encourage other rex users to vote for your request rather than creating a duplicate idea. The more votes you get the quicker your idea will come to our attention :)

How it works:

  • You can add as many new ideas here as you like but each new idea that you add will cost you one of your votes.
  • You have ten votes to use. You can distribute these however you like with a maximum of 3 on any single item. You can remove a vote if you change your mind and put it elsewhere.
  • If you have voted on an item that is then implemented, you will get those votes back to use again.

Remember – no request is too small :)

Happy voting!

    Please contact our support team who will be more than happy to provide you with access to our demo account.
    You will then be able to practice creating contacts, properties, listings etc without uploading or putting fake data into your Rex account.

  2. Only each rep can see agenda and Upcoming for that rep.

    Hi There

    is it true that everyone can see each others agenda and Upcoming events?

    If so why is this?

    When I press the rex tab on the top right it brings up other reps appointments and everyone's daily tass etc.

    How do we make it so only each rep will see their own info???

  3. Allow an image to be used as the background of a newsletter.

    In our office, the background of all of our documents is an image. I cannot recreate this style in the newsletter as I can only select a block colour - Having a box that allows you to select an image from your computer and have it used as the background would be great for us and I'm sure other offices will benefit.

  4. Stretch photos

    When loading a new listing - There should be an option for photos to be stretched to fit the box rather than cropped or put on canvas. This means that a area within the photo looks bigger unlike cropping which can make rooms or other areas of a property look smaller.

  5. ofi lists

    listings still in draft mode need to be available on the ofi lists. Makes it difficult to plan open times when they dont appear on the list until it is uploaded to the net. This was available on the old rex.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    This isn’t something we will be going ahead with.

    Because a draft is not an actual listing yet, you can not use it for reporting. If you could, it would show any accidental ones or drafts you didn’t want to show on the report.

    If you do not want to upload the listing to the portals, you can untick that option in the Publish settings. That way it is published and usable for OFI lists, but not live on the internet.

    For more information, please contact Rex support.

  6. To have an option where you can choose which ads the match emails use

    The ability to use the default or long ad for the buyer match email so that the short ad can remian for use only for stock lists

  7. Notify Agent when an auto email has been sent to a buyer/contact in the stream

    In the old rex, you would receive a notification in your stream of which contacts had received an auto email. Can this be reinstated so that agents know who to make a follow up call to?

  8. Sort contacts by Address

    Some people find it easier to remember addresses better than a contact's name. It would be good to have the option to view the address where the contacts live (plus sorting)

    Unfortunately the address listed against the contacts is a freeform text field. If this was to be sorted it would be sorted by the first characters in the field – most likely the street number (and or anything appearing before the address) which wouldn’t lead to the results you would expect.

  9. Quick access to Reminders for the Week

    Some of our admin staff tend to work with reminders for the coming week - not just today. Would like perhaps to default the reminders per user to a specific period (default = today, with options for this week etc).

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    By default, the reminders will be ‘due today’ which is one week in the future and two weeks behind. You can change the filter but at this stage we are not going to let you change the default.

    With having a shortcut to reminders, this is why we have the reminder step through. This way you can go to the records that are linked the reminders complete, and then move onto the next. This is to save you looking at your reminder, opening the record, completing what you need to do, then go back to the dashboard.

    For more info, please contact Rex support.

  10. realestate.com.au reports integration back into REX

    The ability to push realestate.com.au property activity report information (views, engagement, save & share, enquiries) back into REX and integrate into the REX vendor report.

    At the moment, I'm having to present multiple reports to my vendors and this would enable one single, integrated report.

    Hi Guys,

    Unfortunately realestate.com.au don’t expose this information. If you want it back in Rex you’ll need to contact realestate.com.au and request that they allow us to access that information.

  11. Task Reminders

    When we go into our reminders that are due it would be much better if they displayed everything that is overdue no matter what date it was due that way we are not loosing track of what tasks have not been completed and dont have to change the way the tasks are displayed everytime we view them

    Hi Beth,
    Thanks for the feedback! Whilst we appreciate your suggestion we will not be implementing the ability to automatically view all overdue reminders.
    By default, the reminders show one week in the future and two weeks past. You can change the filter but at this stage we are not going to let you change the default.
    We have the default set this way so that your reminders stay clutter fre, this way you can stay up to date with your upcoming tasks rather than drowning in in overdue tasks.

  12. format listing stock list

    would like the ability to keep a whole property description together on the full advert listing stock list - so the text doesn't span over two pages - half on one page and half on the next page

    Thanks for the suggestion Sheradin,

    We have since removed this stock list as there is no way to control how it spaces the full advert stock list.

    Try using the ‘Short Ad’ in the marketing section to create smaller ads for the stock list.

  13. i am just looking for a way to send our vendors an email incorporating links to view their property on all of the sites advertised.

    Once a property is uploaded you have the option to email your vendor all of the direct links that it appears on.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    This would be great but unfortunately, there is no way for us to gather the information about where the listings are located as such.

    We have to manually find them much the same way you do, so Rex would not be able to perform this on your behalf.

    Some portals do send us an email back with a link to where it located – Domain for example – but most do not provide the location of the listing.

    Hopefully, this is something that they can provide us with in the near future, as would make it a lot easier to find the listings.

  14. Ability to automatically push listings to social media platforms

    It would be great to be able to push new listings to the main social medial platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instragram) as part of the portal push functionality. Additionally, the ability to push price changes would be cool

  15. Property matching to contact to be automatic on dashboard

    I understand the only way to do the property matching with a contact is to go into each contact that the match profile has been set up and automatically match. Is there a way that each time a new listing for the agency is published that it will do an automatic match to contacts and display on dashboard. This is a prompt to let our contact know straight away.

    Unfortunately, this is not something we’re looking to implement into the system at this time. We value your feedback though – if you have any further suggestions please don’t hesitate to send them through.

  16. Ability to attach a listing to a buyer inspection appointment/reminder

    When entering buyer appointments via Reminders, appointment etc. it would be convenient for the listing to be selected and attached to the appointment and therefore register automatically on the vendor report to tally the amount of inspections.

    Hi Katrina,

    Thanks for sending through the Feedback.

    This is partly do-able in Rex.

    You can have a contact and a listing attached to a reminder. This can either be done from the listing record, or by adding in the reminder from the Plus symbol next to the search bar and choosing ‘listing’ as the type.

    In order for it to appear on the Vendor Report, you must add it to the Feedback section.

    For more information, please contact Rex Support.

  17. Listing validation error links

    When a validation error is displayed on the right hand side of a listing just about to go online, it would be a good when the error is displayed to hyperlink to the part in the listing that needs updating instead of just showing the error.

    Hey Andrew,

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    This would be great to show, but unfortunately we aren’t provided with a lot of info on what the issue is from the portals. Also when the Portal accepts the listing, then declines – so it shows okay in Rex – all the portals send different emails with different reasons as to why it did not go through.

    This is something that we would love improve on in the future, but at this stage it isn’t something we can do based on the information we are provided by the portals.

  18. Social Media

    We want our newsletters/templates to have the option for people to ‘like’ / ‘share’ in regards to social media. Facebook/Twitter icons to appear at the bottom of all listings/and newsletters

  19. Number of bathrooms

    It would be ideal to have 2.5 or 1.5 (half option) for bedrooms and bathrooms as big homes have powder rooms etc.

    Hi Luc,

    Unfortunately this isn’t something that’s supported by any of the portals – they all expect whole numbered bath rooms. If powder rooms and similar unsupported features are important for you from an internal marketing standpoint (or for your own website), you might want to add these as custom features via the Admin > Custom Values and Mailing Lists > Property Features section.

  20. Can you please have under the "More" tab in rental listings the option for "Application Pending"

    Can you please have under the "More" tab in rental listings the option for "Application Pending" to send to the portals.
