The goal of this month's update is to help you get more organized in 2019 and make it easier for you to communicate more effectively.
A New Year has arrived and with it brings New Year's resolutions. While we can’t help you with those weight loss goals, we can make it easier for you to use Realeflow to grow your real estate investing business.
Come to think of it, with this growth, you may be able to hire a personal trainer, or even a personal chef... So we can help you with those weight loss goals after all. Here’s to a healthier you in 2019!
One of the most common New Year's resolutions we all make is to get more organized in the coming year. Our first update will help you do just that.
Property Image Folders
We’ve added Property Image folders to help you keep images organized and easily accessible.
Once in the 'Photos/Videos' section of the property file, you can simply click 'Add Folder' and name it whatever you'd like. For example, you could name the folder 'Before' or 'After.'
You then click on the folder and add as many photos as you'd like to it. You’ll also have the ability to add subfolders. This allows you to totally customize the organization of your images to whatever hierarchy fits your needs.
We’ve also added the 'Display on Website' option for folders so that all of the images contained in that folder will automatically display on your website. In the past, you would have had to check each item individually for it to appear on your website. This is a huge time saver!
You can also use the drag and drop functionality to move images into the desired folders, as well as to any other existing folders, or even back out to the image gallery.
Upload Photos From Your Phone
While we’re talking about photos, we have some new mobile functionality when it comes to adding property photos. With Realeflow's new mobile navigation, you also have the ability to upload photos to your property file directly from your mobile device.
Simply navigate to the 'Photos/Video' section, select the 'ADD PHOTO' button, then choose the image that you’d like to upload. You can choose an image from your photo library OR you can open up your camera and take the photo right there.
This is part of our resolution to make Realeflow more mobile friendly in 2019.
Email Notifications For Tasks
Next up, a nifty little update that will keep you on task. Literally.
Introducing email notifications for tasks. When you create and save a task, you’ll notice that a clock icon will appear to the right of the task.
This opens a modal window that will allow you to decide how many email reminders you would like to set for that task, and when you would like to receive them.
For example, you can set a reminder to be sent a day before the task is due, and/or the day that the task is due.
New Email Editor
Speaking of emails, we’ve redesigned our Email Content Editor with a more modern look and feel.
The biggest usability improvement is image embedding, which means that you can upload an image directly into the editor and we will host it.
Prior to this update, you would have had to upload the image somewhere else, like DropBox or Google, and then enter the URL into the editor.
Whether you’re writing a one-off email or creating an autoresponder sequence, this new feature will streamline the email writing process and cut down on extra steps, helping you communicate more effectively.
The Year To Come
In 2019, we’re going to be continually working on making Realeflow even better. We will be focusing on improved mobility, team communication and workflows, more integration between Realeflow and FlipComp, as well as improved market insights, and more analytics and tracking.
We recently discussed many of these updates on a Facebook Live session. You can check it out here!
