Important: The announcement feature displays your messages only on the Touchbase App when contacting real estate agents (mobile or desktop).
This means that your message will not be received by members who are set up to receive only SMS/Email communications.
For admins, there will be a popup on the admin platform when they log in, displaying your Announcement.
Real Estate Associations can now send information to their agents in the form of a popup on the Touchbase mobile app or on the admin platform.
You can use this feature for any type of message, including surveys, images, messages containing a URL, and more.
To create an Announcement, click on the Announcements tab on the left-hand menu in the Real Estate Board platform.
Then, click on New Announcement.
Choose on whose mobile app you wish to display your Announcement by checking one or multiple boxes from the list. Choose your language of correspondence, dates (how long you want this Announcement to be displayed), subject line and Announcement text.
The Announcement will show on your agents' mobile apps (or admin's desktop platform) when they open it up for the first time within the dates you have specified.
Your members have two options: close the Announcement, or view it again later. This message is not stored in their reports; if the member chooses to view the Announcement later, the popup will reappear the following day. This will continue to occur until either the member marks it as read (closes it) or the time elapses based on the dates you entered when creating the message.
