Matrix 6.11 Update Guide
1. Updated Internet Browser Compatibility
In an effort to ensure a consistent user experience, only the latest browser versions will be supported by Matrix. Users who are using an outdated browser will be presented with a warning at login.
2. Ability to Edit your own listings from the “Agent 1 Line” and “Agent Full” display
Listing agents are now able to access their listings and “Edit” them directly from the “Edit” column shown below. A pencil icon will appear next to each of your listings indicating the ability to edit. Simply click on the icon to begin editing your listing.
3. “Expiration” and “Estimated Close of Escrow” (ECOE) Matrix News pop-ups
To help keep Listing/Co-Listing Agents updated on upcoming Expiration dates and ECOE dates for their listings, Matrix has been updated to include News pop-ups for these events.
4. Auto-Emails: Ability to customize “Welcome” emails, recurring emails, and salutations
Matrix Auto Email “Welcome” and recurring emails can be customized. Simply edit the default message with any message you prefer.
An editor for email signatures is available allowing you to edit salutations on a per-contact basis.

The latest enhancement to the Matrix platform now provides you the ability to export your custom displays.
From a search result, select the listings you wish to export. Then click on the Export button at the bottom of the screen.
On the export screen, select your custom display from the drop down list and click export.
7. Enhanced “Display” and “Report” designs
