With IDX Broker, you can receive text message notifications whenever someone signs up as a lead. This way, you will know the instant you have a new lead and you will be able to get in contact immediately. SMS messages will include the name, phone number, and email the lead provides.
To opt in for SMS messaging, log into your IDX control panel and go to Leads in the main menu, then Lead Registration Preferences in the submenu. Click on the Advanced tab to go to the Lead Signup form. Scroll down to SMS Alerts, click Yes under Opt-In, then enter the phone number where you want to receive notifications and Save Changes.
If you have a multi-user account, you can also have any of your agents receive SMS messages for any leads that they receive by setting up SMS messaging in their agent bio. Go to Users in the main menu, then Agents -> Manage in the submenu. From there, click the Edit Agent icon for the agent you are working on. Scroll down to the SMS Alerts section and provide the number the agent would like to use.
You can opt out of these messages at any time by switching the toggle back to No in the IDX control panel or by replying to the SMS message and texting STOP. You can also opt back in from your phone by texting START to the same number.
The Message Center has a new tab to keep track of your SMS messages sent by the system. To get there, go to Account in the main menu then Message Center in the submenu. Next, click on the SMS tab to see a list of all SMS messages specific to your account. Any SMS message history will be stored in the IDX Broker control panel for 28 days before it is removed.
