The listing input form displays all of the fields of data you'll need to provide to create a listing, along with many optional fields that you may wish to provide to complete the listing.
The form is divided into sections, grouping together similar data elements. Sections may be collapsed or expanded for easier navigation by clicking the caret on the upper right-hand corner of the section. Tabbing through each section will move from field to field.
Each section displays the number of required fields completed and the number of total required fields for that section. Required fields are marked with a red dot, just to the right of the field name. Fields in an error state (i.e., having invalid data, or a required field without data) will be highlighted in red with a red border, and may display an error message to clarify the problem.
In many cases, the Listing Input application will attempt to combine similar fields from multiple MLSs or broker systems into a single field, even if the MLSs and brokers have slightly different rules about what can go into that field. If a value that you enter isn't valid for one or more of the MLSs or brokers, the system will open a dialog allowing you to enter different values for different MLSs or brokers, so that you can provide valid data to each. For example, one MLS may allow for a longer set of Remarks. Using Listing Input, you can enter two different sets of remarks for those MLSs.
Sometimes, the rules or selections of seemingly related fields will be too different to simply combine into one. In this case, the field will appear multiple times on the listing input form, once per MLS or broker system.
Clicking on or tabbing into any field will display the MLSs or broker systems linked to that field, so you can manage the data you're sending to each system.
In cases where you used a public record search or copied an existing inactive listing to create your listing, you'll notice that many fields of data will be prefilled. Please review this data carefully as you proceed through the form. It may be the case that the values copied in from one source cannot be published to another (in the case of a rule conflict, for example), and you will need to edit that information.
