New Matrix Tip of the Week: Create Speed Bar Shortcuts to Save Time!

November 18, 2010  |  by Cassie

Take advantage of the new Search Speedbar, as well as Speed bar Shortcuts that can then be recalled anywhere in Matrix!    Why would you use speedbar shortcuts instead of saved searches?  It is the ability to adjust your search criteria on the fly!  Let’s say a client calls and wants to know 4+bedrooms and 3 bath homes in Fairfax Ridge.  Since you are a seasoned agent in Fairfax Ridge, and have already have it as a saved shortcut, simply type in “/FairfaxRidge 4+ 3” in the speedbar and click go! The speedbar recognizes the first number in as bedrooms and the second number as baths.  Need to go more specific in the search?  There will be plenty of speedbar codes to help you along the way.

Search the way you normally do now, and you will see the speedbar automatically fill in to help “teach” you the codes you use most often. 

After listings of a search are displayed, click on Save As button in your floating navigation bar ( also a new feature – no more having to scroll all the way down the page to get to your action buttons!) and select New Speed Bar Shortcut.  From there, you will be prompted to save a name behind a forward slash.  The “/(name of your search)” will be the way the speedbar recognizes your shortcut and takes you to your pre determined criteria as quickly as possible!  What would you save your shortcuts as?  A perfect example would be a specific subdivision you constantly work in, simpley do a regular search and save a speedbar shortcut as “/FairfaxRidge” or “/McNairFarms.” 

Benefits of using speed bar shortcuts:

  • Adjust search criteria on the fly!
  • Save an unlimited amount of Speedbar shortcuts and adjust them instantly!
  • Located in every tab in Matrix, access the speedbar anywhere!
  • Save time and increase efficiency!
