Adding an Additional E-mail Address to an Auto Search

This Flex Tip will walk you through the two-step process of adding an additional e-mail address to a Contact and then attaching it to an automatic search.

STEP 1: Adding an Additional E-mail Address to a Contact

  • In the FlexMLS main menu tree, click on Contact > Contact Management.
  • Under the Display Name column, click on the Contact's name that you want to add the additional e-mail address to.
  • Click the Edit Contact button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Click the +Add button next to the last e-mail address in the list.
  • Type the e-mail address in the text box that appears.
  • Click the Save Changes button on the bottom of the screen.

NOTE: If you are adding more than one e-mail address to the Contact, click the +Add button for each additional e-mail address you would like to add.

STEP 2: Adding an Additional E-Mail Address to an Auto Search

  • You should still be in Contact Management within your Contact's file; click the Searches/Auto E-mail tab.
  • In the Searches box, highlight the name of the search you would like to add the additional e-mail address to; click on the Event hyperlink located under the Auto E-mail section. This will route you to the Edit Prospecting Event screen.
  • In the Available Contacts column, highlight the Contact ID/name with the secondary e-mail address; click the yellow Add button. Repeat if adding more addresses.
  • Go to the bottom of the page and click on the Next button.

NOTE: E-mail addresses attached to an event can be seen on the Contact's Searches/Auto E-mail tab under the Auto E-mail heading. If you are adding three or more additional e-mail addresses, only the number of e-mail addresses attached will show.
