Validate Saved Links

Last Updated: Apr 21, 2017 03:24PM PDT

Periodically, MLS may make changes to the search fields in the IDX data that we receive. Sometimes these changes affect the field names used on your IDX pages. If this happens to your MLS, you will see a notice posted in your IDX control panel on your Dashboard.

Changes like these may cause some of the search fields used in Saved Links to become outdated and no longer return accurate search results. IDX Broker provides you with a validation tool that will automatically check your Saved Links for any that have invalid field names. To use this tool, navigate to Designs -> Saved Links, and select Manage from the dropdown. Above the list of Saved Links, you should see a link labeled Validate.

By clicking this link, IDX Broker will automatically check all of your saved links and highlight in red any that have invalid field names. You will also get a notification for fields that are invalid for each link.

To update your links, click the Edit Search icon in the Tools column for each link you need to update.

Select the appropriate fields from your search form, and re-save you links. After you have updated the search criterion for each link that needs it, you can click Validate again to double check that they are all updated and valid.
