What is in the Release?

  1. Groups - expanded to include Properties and Companies, auto-activate

    We are introducing improvements to Contact Groups. Now, Admins no longer need to activate groups manually. Groups will auto-activate, 5-min after creation. Additionally, all the same functionality we use to organize Contacts into Groups can now be utilized for both Companies and Properties.

  2. Buildout Integration- now available for Apto Deals users!

    Our customers using the Deals pipeline will now be able to take full advantage of the Buildout integration. Customers familiar with our previous integration (used for the legacy, multi-object pipeline) will be familiar with setup and publishing as the process follows the same logic.

  3. Deal Offers - available for Apto Deals users only

    Deal Offers tracks individual offers and their relevant information for an active listing.

  4. Deal Page Layout Updates

    We are updating standard layouts to match feedback we have heard from the team and customers.
