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. Print/Download the Newsletter Email Statistics

    The newsletter send outs to our database are fantastic, however would be great if we could generate a report to either download pdf/ print version as this is data that cannot be shared. Vendors would like to know how many people are looking at their property through our bulk email send outs and would be presented better on a document that showing them on Rex screen.

  2. Newsletter Merge - For Agents name/details

    As we have mailing lists with different agents clients on it, we need to be able to use merge fields so that when newsletters are sent they are agent specific

  3. Under Offer or Under Contract banner on newsletters

    Hi team

    Just wanted to put this out there and I'd love some feedback from the developers. Can we get a "under offer" or "under contract" banner for the newsletters. We only have a sold. Seems like a standard thing that is missing. Every major internet portal has it, I think the newsletters should too.
    Yes there is "under contract" banner internally for the users of rex in the office to see, but can you make it an option.

    Cheers
    Harley, Perth

  4. Newsletter reporting

    When looking at the sent newsletter report.
    And looking at who has clicked a link, we need to know what property address they have viewed rather than the property ID.

  5. Notify Agents of Unsubscribers

    Something needs to be implements where the Agent is notified of contacts who unsubscribe from a campaign- i.e. An agent receives an Email to the effect of: 'FYI - 'X' unsubscribed from your 'X' campaign'.

    Its great that the individual is automatically removed from this mailing list at their own call, but this isn't made aware to the listing agent until they are on the contact card itself and see 'Email- terminated, Unsubscribed'

    Can something be done about this?

    I’m happy to inform you our developers already have what you just described in the pipeline. While i can’t give you an ETA on it’s release, keep your eye on the blog or the ‘Suggest a feature’ page in Rex – we’ll let you know through there when it’s live! 

  6. Folders in the Newsletters Tab

    I would like to be able to file my Newsletters so I can declutter the space.

    For example - October 2018 Newsletters, November 2018 Newsletter etc

  7. Add hyperlink for video listings automatically

    many agents have property tours on youtube. It would be great to have these display Click Here automatically on each listing in the grid ofi or grid property listings on the newsletters

  8. Converting email newsletters into PDF

    It would be awesome if we could download a newsletter sent to our database in PDF format, or be able to generate a web link so the newsletter web link can be distributed via Social Media such as on our company Facebook page. Please!!!
    Thanks,
    Shanelle :)

  9. Generic Company Newsletter that can be imported into that Company's various Franchises

    I have to manually set up over 210 newsletters every bi-month with 80% same content, but those 210 newsletters are not all for the same franchise. Is there any way I can set this up just the once, and then 'upload it' into every franchise for each specified salesperson relative to that franchise and then just change out specific details to personalise them?

    This would save a lot of time, and potential errors.

  10. Add Newsletter Templates as part of Tracks

    Would like to add Newsletters to a task Track.

    For example, we'd like to create a series of emails explaining the benefits of dealing with our agency. One benefit for each Newsletter.

    Build into the Track that Wk1 send Newsletter Template #1
    4 Days later send Newsletter Template #2
    14 days later send Newsletter Template # 3 etc.....

    Make a note against the contact's history that this Newsletter was sent

  11. Newsletter Layout Width

    The width of the newsletter template is very thin, it doesn't look appealing on a PC screen at all and is all squished in the middle.

  12. New 'Newsletter Block' required for open home times

    It would be great if it could show the price, a brief description, main listing image and the agent contact details.

    Attached is an open home report which would be great to copy to the Rex newsletter template.

  13. Include link to web version of newsletter

    Hi. A standard practice for sending email newsletters is to include a link to " a web version" of the newsletter. This is because not all email clients display newsletters the same way and some won't display images, so have a link to a web based version helps by displaying the newsletter the way it was intended.
    Cheers

  14. Event times in Newsletters

    When adding an Event Block to a Newsletter, the system currently displays all events in Rex. It would be good it this only showed future events (rather than seeing events from months prior).

  15. Photo

    When adding a Listing Block into a newsletter and selecting the Listings to appear within it, could we please have the Listing Main Photo appear when a Listing is scrolled over? It would make it easier to determine which Listings are to be included when dealing with a lot of apartments that are numbered similarly. Thank you.

  17. Newsletter info in contacts stream

    I would like to be able to go into the Contact screen, and pull a report on which newsletters the contact has been sent, how many times they opened, and how many clicks. The same as what you can see when you go into the Newsletter for all contacts, but the other way around, you go into the Contacts, and see all newsletters. Would be a good tool to easily determine how often the contact looks at the newsletters and how active they are.

  18. Rep access to send own newsletters but not to others mailing lists

    We want to give our reps access to send their own newsletters, however we are worried that another rep could send a newsletter to someone else’s database/mailing list.
    We would like a privilege to set for each rep so that they can send their own newsletters but not to someone else’s database.
    Our reps currently have ‘Closed Office’ access. THANK YOU

  19. Under Newletters the order of listings needs reversal - new to old

    When creating Newsletters when we put in the current listings the drop box lists the listings with the oldest listings first. This means scrolling/uploading pages and pages before getting to the latest and new listings. To save time this should be reversed so that the most recent listings come first.

  20. Agent Newsletters - Ability to change listing agents names to your own.

    REX needs to implement the ability to remove the listing agents details from properties which are pulled through when creating newsletters of new listings. The listing agents details can be seen when you click on the read more link on a listing, and this brings up the listing agents name, and this is a problem when the agent sending company listings to their own clients, are not the listing agent (as they don't want to encourage their own clients to call someone else!).

    It would be fantastic if the agent who is setting up and sending the newsletter has the…
