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.
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.

Let's say we have organised our opens for the weekend and want to print a list to put in our property guide or to hand out to buyers or to organise our agents, the photos for a property are coming in on Friday so we can't publish the property until we have photos. The property therefore is not on the open list but should be.
The only other option I see then is to put a "coming soon" photo and untick all the portals, then remove the photo and retick all the portals again. Which seems like a hassle.
Also, if we had an accidental draft I wouldn't have an open time attached to it, but if it did when we print the list we will see that and remove it.
I still think it is a good idea and the option would be great.
