How do I manually add my listing into Showing Suite?

Entering your listings into Showing Suite is easy (although it can be time-consuming if you have a lot of listings). The number of steps vary according to your plan and available features, but you only have to enter the listing once!

If you would rather have the system import your listings directly from your MLS then we strongly recommend that you subscribe to a plan with Listing Sync included and set it up.

To manually enter a listing, first click Listings on the top navigation and click the orange Add Listing button.

      1. View/Edit Seller Details: Enter the listing's seller details...

        • Seller Login Details
          Enter a username and password for your seller. The login information is what your seller will use to login to their private console to view feedback, upcoming showings, important documents you've uploaded, and more (options vary depending on your plan).

          Note when selecting a username..
          • The username must be unique and cannot contain any special characters.
          • If you receive an error stating that the username exists try adding a number at the end as someone else in our Showing Suite system has already selected that username.
          • We do suggest that if your seller has only one property to use a unique marker for their user name, such as their listing address (eg. 123AnywhereAve), as it is likely that that username will not exist yet.

        • Seller Information
          • Select whether the listing is bank owned
          • Seller's first name
          • Seller's last name
          • Seler's email address
          • Seller's home phone number
          • Seller's mobile phone number
          • Check whether you want to send the seller a welcome email with their new login information.
        • Seller Communication
          • Select whether the seller can send feedback requests
          • Select if you want the seller to be notified via email when new feedback is received.

          • Select if you would like to screen feedback within your account before the feedback is sent to your seller.
