Release Notes: September 2021

You asked, we listened. Based on REALTOR® feedback we have added new features and tweaked existing ones. Included also in this release are data updates, bug fixes, and performance improvements.

Highlights of this release:

  • New links have been added to the Map View search results. 

  • Options for managing previously run reports are restored. 

  • Report history is easier to view on the Report generation page.

  • My Markets on the Home page is now collapsible. 

Map View

New links have been added to the Map View search results that allow you to create mailing labels, print the page, or create a report.

Report Options

See when a report was opened, rerun and resend a report, or resend an existing report. You can also download, delete, or post a report to Facebook.

  • Rerun and Resend: Update your report to the latest data available and resend it.

  • Resend Report: Resend a report exactly as before (without updating).

  • View Report Activity: See who you sent a report to and when it was last opened.

My Reports

Report history is easier to view on the Report generation page. Display your 9 most recent reports, click the “Show All” link to view all of your reports.

Reports are available for 30 days. If you need a report for longer than 30 days, please save the report to your computer.

My Markets Map

My Markets on the Home page is now collapsible and expandable.  Click the 3 verticle dots to collapse or expand the My Markets map. The system will remember your last choice and honor it when you log back into RPR.

Time Saver: Set your markets, then log into RPR daily to see recent changes within your markets. Click within the map boundaries to create a Market Activity Report to email to your clients.

RPR App

We are including both the RPR status and the MLS status on the property page when they differ. For instance, RPR uses “Active Under Contract”, while some MLSs use “Contingent” or Accepting Back up Offers”. Now both statuses will display, the same as our website.
