The SCAOR Card – Issue #012 – From the CEO’s Desk

Hello members,

 
The FY 2017 year is coming to an end which means that the 2018 Installation is on the horizon.  If you have not marked your calendars, please reserve November 30 at 4 pm to welcome a new slate of Officers and Directors.  President-elect Chris Lind has chosen SCAOR has the location for the festivities.  Come out and support the 2018 SCAOR President!
 
Other important news includes transitioning to Bright MLS on December 11.  Every Thursday we post Bright MLS information and within this SCAOR card you will see there are several MLS training dates already scheduled.  Stay ahead of the training curve by attending a training workshop early on.
 
By now the 2017 Lockbox Exchange should be complete.  If you still have questions or issues, please contact Andrew Mason at SCAOR.  With Ben Kunde departing for Bright MLS, Andrew will take over as Sentrilock Customer Service Manager.
 
Lastly, SCAOR dues will be invoiced the first week of October.  The dues will remain at $260 annually (January 1 through December 31, 2018).
 
Thank you for allowing me to serve you, and if you ever need anything please contact me at merritt@scaor.com.
 
Sincerely,

Tech Tip Tuesday - #078

Tech Tip Tuesday – #078 – Getting FREE User Feedback Using Google Forms

 

Welcome back to Tech Tip Tuesday!

This is your ultra-fast, easy dose of the latest tech that can help your life as a REALTOR®.  Whether it’s using the MLS, Mobile Apps, or surfing around, we’ll give you the tools you need each Tuesday.

Tech Tip Tuesday – #078 – Getting FREE Feedback from People Using Google Forms

Today’s Tip:

Today’s Tech Tip Tuesday, we’ll be talking about how to collect feedback from your clients using Google Forms for free.  Click here to try it out!

When you’re working with a large list of people, and want to get their feedback on something…It’s sometimes useful to create an online form for them to share their thoughts. That way, you can get a feel for the collective opinions of others without talking to each of them. You can also use Google Forms to register people for events.

So, let’s make a form and get a better idea of how this works! First, if you don’t already have a Google account, you’ll need to sign up for one. The process is super-easy. Then, you head to forms.google.com, and click on the plus sign.

There’s a few things to notice on this new page. First, the two tabs at the top called Questions (the side your viewers will see) and Responses (only you and other people who have been specified can see).

So lets say we want some feedback from people. We’ll set up the name. Add an email so we can write them back if we need to. And a few questions.

Each of these questions can be set up with the question type that suits you best.

Bright MLS FAQ:


1) How much Will Bright MLS Cost?
$35 per month for REALTOR®’s and $53 per month for non-REALTORS®. Billing will be quarterly beginning in January. New members after January will be billed quarterly based on their join date.

2) How much will my clerical/personal assistant cost?
$30 per month per clerical. Each office will be allowed 1 free clerical per 30 agents up to 3 free.

3) Is there any setup cost?
For members that have joined before December 7th 2017, there will be no Application/Setup fee. After December 7th, there will be an application charge of $250 per member paid to Bright MLS.

4) When can we see it?
A preview period will begin November 7th and will run parallel with our current system. Our current MLS will go into read-only mode on December 7th. This means as of December 7th you will no longer be able to edit, add or close a listing in the current MLS system. On Monday, December 11, we will go live with Bright MLS and it will be populated with all of our current data as of December 7th. 

5) Will there be training?
Yes, training begins November 7th and will run into January of 2018. We will publish those dates once they are available for release. 

6) What can I do now?
Please update your profile information with a current photo and ensure all information is correct. If something needs to be changed please email info@scaor.com.
