Click Pages to Find Advanced Search
Log in to your IDX Broker’s dashboard. From the main menu, select Designs. From the secondary menu, select Pages.
Edit IDX Broker Advanced Search Fields
From the list of pages, find Advanced Search. Look to the right and select Fields, which is under the Customize column.
Choose Property Type
You’ll see a list of property types under Step 1. Choose the one you wish to edit. Click View Settings for Step 2.
Add Fields to Property Type Layout
You’ll see two columns, Left Side and Right Side that contain fields already available in the Advanced Search options. To the right of those boxes, there is a scrollable section called Available Fields. Add your choice(s) by clicking the + sign next to the field name. For example, if I want to add 55+ Community, I will click the + and that field will show up on the Right Side.
Select Field Options
Once you’ve added the field to the side, you’ll want to choose the option needed for the drop-down menu. You may choose to List all criteria, which will populate a complete list of options for the searcher to select from when creating their advanced search. Other options include Yes/No, Min/Max, and Keyword. In some cases, you can only choose a Yes/No option. That would be for something like Pool or Master Bedroom Downstairs. In some cases, the Min/Max works on options like Bedrooms and Bathrooms.
Sorting Fields & Organization
When adding fields, the sides can get cluttered quickly if you’re not purposeful. You can drag the boxes up and down the sides, move them from one side to the other, and organize them according to use. For example, you may want all search fields related to schools in the same area. If you have building related search fields, you may want those together.
Creating Laser Focused Widgets
Once you’ve added the fields needed to your Advanced Search option, you’ll have access to those fields when creating widgets within IDX Broker using the Advanced Search. To learn more about Creating a Widget and Placing the Widget on Your Real Estate Agent Website, click here.
