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!

  1. More Video Link Capacity

    Can we please have the capacity to put in more than one video link for each property please?! We often have more than one video and would be nice not to have to put links in the advert wording and instead have them all uploaded and showing like a proper video link.

    The video links are modelled based on the allowances that the portals make for videos – unfortunately based on their definitions, each listing can only have one video.

    Until that changes we don’t have a meaningful way to send multiple links which is why we currently don’t support them.

  2. Different tabs in properties for sale

    Could we please have new tabs or drop down options that will show the following in separate sections under properties for sale.
    - Available listings
    - Under contract listings
    - Unconditional/Sold listings

    I know you can already 'filter' under contract but that just brings up under contract listings. It's an absolute nightmare to print out a current stocklist... You have to manually go through and try and remember what is under contract and what isn't

    Hi Jacqui,

    Unfortunately, the sub-categories are pre-defined by the portals, this means we’re unable to customise these for you.

    We suggest that you get in touch with the portals directly to discuss options for custom feeds.

    If you require the details for match profiles, we suggest using tags. Check out this help article for details on using tags in Match Profiles: http://help.rexsoftware.com/match-profiles-using-tags-as-criteria

  4. Off Market Listing feature

    Isn't it annoying when you cant display all of your current listings as a spreadsheet or on the OFI list generated via REX because the listing is incomplete or cant be put as a listing because its going to be an off market transaction?

    Definitely be worth having the ability to categorise between, Listings, Off market & appraisals.

    No doubt this feature would help a lot of buyers advocates and people who deal mainly with off market transactions and will be able to finally generate reports with absolutely every property sold through your business.

    Hi Joshua,

    This is technically available / achievable within rex as it currently stands:

    1. If you want csv’s of your data, you can choose to export your listings at any time regardless of publication status if you have rights to do so.

    2. Listings have to be published not necessarily as a signal to market them on external sites, but more so:
    a. To ensure that you actually have confirmed authority to sell them.
    b. To ensure that enough fields have been populated so that purchasers / renters have enough information to make an educated decision on whether the property is suitable for them and also to ensure that a certain level of basic information exists for things like feedback approval, enquiry routing etc. This is different on a per property category basis. The requirement for information to publish a listing is quite low.
    c. To ensure that when…

  5. Excklusive listings

    I would like to be able to add an "exclusive" banner to the main photo of a listing. This would also feed through to the portals we load to.

    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for your suggestion, whilst this is not something we are looking to implement via Rex, we can suggest that you add the overlay prior to uploading the photo to Rex. You can do this using a photoshopping tool, or by asking your photographer to add it for you.

  6. Can we PLEASE have price change notifications changed from "Price Reduction" to "Price Alteration" instead

  7. Dates on advertising invoices

    When you print the advertising invoice it does not have dates in which each individual advertising cost was booked.

    I don't understand why it asks you to put in a booking date to not even include it on the advertising invoice.

    Can you please add in the ability to do this. It's so confusing for our vendors and we keep getting constant questions about when certain advertising e.g. newspaper was booked. If it just had the booking date on the invoice IT WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER.

    If you would like to notify your vendors of booking dates, we suggest sending them the marketing schedule. The marketing schedule can be generated from the VPA tab on a listing.
    Adding the booking dates to invoices is not something we are looking to implement.

  8. More Land subcategories like Industrial and Commercial

    Currently the only option is 'Residential Land' under subcategories, can this be changed to include Industrial and Commercial land options,

    Hi Martin,
    We are unfortunately unable to create custom listing types or sub-categories because they are pre determined by the portals (REA, Domain etc).

    I suggest maybe contacting the portals directly to discuss additional options with them.

  9. Reminder email sent when listing is due to expire

    It would be ideal if a reminder email could be automatically sent from REX to the listing agent 5 days out from the listing's expiry date to prompt them to have the agency extended or renewed before the current agreement expires.

    Thanks for your suggestion! Agents should be checking their Rex dashboards on a daily basis to keep up to date with expiring authorities etc. Due to this, we’re not currently looking to include what you described in the system. We certainly value your feedback however – so if you have any more suggestions feel free to send them through.

    Thanks for the suggestion; it’s a great idea but unfortunately we’ll have to close this one as we don’t believe it’s technically possible. Characters are of varying widths, so two different blocks of text take up a differing amount of space – even if they’re both the same letter count. Letting you select a maximum letter count is possible, but you could still get text “overflowing” the allocated space, so it wouldn’t really solve the issue.

  11. Option to use photos already loaded when re-listing a property

    It would be great if you could have the option to use the photos already attached to the property when you go to relist it. This would be really helpful when listing rental properties in particular as you use the same photos most of the time.

  13. Are we able to place a + sign on the Bedrooms and bathroom to indicate a study or a powder room please?

    I know that rex only accepts whole numbers, if we can use a + sign that would indicate there is more than the whole number.
    Thank you.

    As mentioned unfortunately the portals wouldn’t support this. You can however add a study as a feature on a residential property which should be displayed appropriately on portals.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Adding features to a property one at a time is time consuming!

    Could you introduce the facility of having check boxes in the property features list so that that multiple features could be added at once rather than having to repeatedly scroll through the list to add each feature one at a time.

    Thanks for your suggestion,

    We’ve got a method to make this a little quicker for you. Say you wanted to add ‘Pool’, normally you’d have to scroll towards the bottom to add it. Try typing in ‘Pool’ and it will narrow down the options to choose from. This will save you time scrolling through the options to choose from.

    I hope this helps!
