Step 1: Select Link Name and Type

Look for this SmartTip icon to walk you through each step! ​

  1. Once you have navigated to Preferences > IDX Manager click on New (top-right) to create a new link.

  2. Give a name for your link:

  3. Select the type of link you wish to create. Options available will be:

    Link Type


    My Listings

    Display your current active listings.

    Quick Search

    Selecting quick search as your link type will allow you to choose one of your quick search templates. A quick search template contains the fields you wish to allow your visitors to search the MLS with. These templates can be created and edited under Preferences > Quick Search Templates.

    Saved Search

    The saved search link type will allow you to select any custom search you have created under Search > Saved Searches. Unlike a quick search, in a saved search link, you are pre-selecting the criteria for the user (i.e. Residential listings from $100k-$250k).

    Roster Search

    If the Flexmls IDX link is for your office site, you can use this link type to allow visitors to search for agents in your office.

  4. There will be two checkboxes below the Link Type:

    • - Allows the search to be selected from the Portal homepage list.

    • - Makes the link the default search when 'Search' is clicked from the Portal homepage.
