PropertyRadar 3.3.x Hotfixes (as of April 20, 2018)

Fixed the error text for Quick Search > Owner to not suggest the use of "last, first".
Added a Cancel button to the Alerts Settings dialog so it can not be closed without making changes.
Resolved issue where app would break after viewing Settings > Billing
Restored the Buy/View link for parcel maps in Property Profile. This is only visible if we have parcel maps.
Optimized how the client acts when a viewed property is removed from a list. If viewing that list, the property will remain in the Next/Prev flipping of properties after it has been removed in Property Profile. When returning to the List view, the results will be refreshed and any properties that were removed from the list in Property Profile will then be removed from the view and subsequent flipping through of properties.
Fixed issue where the Switch button for asking users to change their deprecated subscription package was cut off
Users can once again use Shift + Click in legacy search results to select multiple properties. You must click on the checkbox column.
Fixed the ability to Export from lists when logged in as a Team member
The correct Team lists are displayed in Make a List > My Data > Include/Exclude lists
Fixed an issue that caused some alerts for Saved Searches from working
Removed CAR discount from the client. Users were seeing it, but still correctly being charged full price.Fixed issue where My Lists was not updating after editing a list name
Fixed Mail Merge when done from My Lists
Fixed issue where legacy search results would get in funky state after viewing a property profile
Resolved issue preventing team members from seeing photos and files in Property Profile
Resolved issue where users were directed to an invalid link when switching teams
Fixed ability to select Counties in Make-a-List for California.
You can now use Quick Search for RadarIDs with lower case letters
Restored the Foreclosure selector in Property Profile
Resolved issue where Transaction history did not always have scrollbars in Property Profile
Fixed issue preventing the use of ' in the name of lists when renaming them
Fixed issues with Standard package users export Foreclosure Search results due to package-based restrictions on some Foreclosure fields
Restored Confidence and Date values for Property Profile > Value > Market Value
Users are now prevented from deleting lists if they are referenced as an Include/Exclude in another list, are an option in a Saved Search, or are used to save properties to in an Alert. They will be given the names of the lists/searches/alerts that block the removal.
Note that "Recent Searches" under the save menu in legacy search are stored locally and not checked for this. Running a recent search that references a deleted list will result in a search error with a numeric ListID as an option.
Selected counties will again be shown in Search Options for Saved Searches using counties as a search option.
The Saved Search screen is now scrollable.
The scrollable list of Saved Searches was removed from the Save menu within legacy searches. They have been replaced with a menu item that opens the Saved Search screen. On all browsers except for Firefox, the ability to scroll the saved searches was broken. This resolves that issue.
Users using bookmarks and URL bar suggestions for old links will no longer get a blank screen. They will now be sent to the default My Lists view.
Removed the extra blank column for List View reports
Fixed issue where trying to unhide properties resulted in a server error
Restored the location search bar to maps in Make a List
 Fixed issue where some users were unable to click Make a List to create a new list. We also expanded the clickable area to the entire card, not just the center region.

PropertyRadar 3.3 Release Notes (March 16, 2018)

With v3.3, we focused on over 200 of our user's requests for features, data, as well as resolving issues. 

This release enhances Quick Search, updates Explore, adds features to lists, updates our web framework and fixes lots of bugs.The framework update should resolve several issues on touch platforms.

And there’s still some Known Issues (below) to be aware.

Quick Search

We’ve improved Quick Search to get you better results, faster. There’s two tabs depending on your focus: Property or Owner.

 

Make A List – New Criteria & Functionality

New Data! Vacancy Data

We're excited to announce Vacancy Data availability with v3.3. Vacancy data, identified by the US Postal Service, tells you (1) whether or not a property (site) is identified vacant, or (2) whether or not an owner's mailing address is identified vacant. Shown on Property Profile as well. For more details on how to make use of Vacancy Data, click here.

Include/Exclude Lists in Lists

With PropertyRadar v3.3 we introduce a simple, yet powerful way to make managing your targeted marketing easier by giving you the ability to treat a List as criteria to be included or excluded from a new List you create. From within Make A List, navigate to Criteria > My Data > Lists.

New Data! Added Congressional District as criteria and is shown on Property Profiles.

We moved the Owner Occupied criteria selection location to Criteria > Property in Make A List. It used to be in Criteria > Owners which was not intuitive. Everyone pointed out that Owners aren't actually occupied or not. Properties are occupied (or not) by Owners. Duh! If you regularly use Owner Occupied criteria in making lists, know that it's now at Criteria > Property > Status > Owner Occupied.

You can now remove the State criteria if you're using a Map location criteria. This allows for crossing state lines.

My Lists Dashboard & Working With Lists

You can now sort your Lists! Head to Settings > List Preferences to sort Size (largest to smallest), Size (smallest to largest), Alphabetical, Newest first, and Oldest first.

Added the ability to rename lists.This is available from the Settings icon on each list card from My Lists. Alerts for renamed lists will be automatically renamed.

My Lists now loads significantly faster for users with a large number of lists

Lists with zero properties will now display in My Lists

Lists are no longer automatically deleted if you remove all properties.You must go to My Lists > Settings (from the card) to delete a list.

Demographic criteria in Make a List will now search against any owner, not just the primary owner.Tool tips have been updated to reflect this.

Explore & Map Interfaces

Heatmaps and Boundary are now drop menus from the top bar to work better of screens of all sizes and accommodate the 23 heatmaps. The tabbed selection has been removed.

NINE new owner demographics heatmaps in Explore, 23 heatmaps in total now. We tweaked the Explore UI a bit to fit them all in.

The nine new heatmaps included are: 

Ownership: Owner Occupied, Owner in county, Owner out of county but in state, and Owner out of state. VacancyOwnership TypeOwner AgeOwner GenderChildren PresentOwner EducationOwner IncomeBusiness Owner

Changed the boundary lines on maps to look different than parcel lines.

Search from Explore now uses Make a List. We now allow Make a List to cross state lines when using map coordinates to support this.

Street names are now displayed on Aerial view.Birdseye and Street View still do not.

We’ve made the radius/polygon tools and heatmap/boundary Layers consistent across all map interfaces. You can toggle the Legend for heatmap Layers on and off now in Make a List and the Searches just like Explore. All the new demographic heatmaps are available as well.

Resolved Issues:

Added horizontal scrollbars when the browser window is narrower than 1020px

Selected rows in List list view will now persist when adding/removing columns (such as removing columns for making a list view report).Selections will still be lost when changing sort order.This fix was not applied to legacy searches.

Property Profile reports will now show the Details row in Transactions history just as displayed in the web app.

Enabled use of larger icons for use on Retina displays for all maps

List selection criteria in Make a List will no longer offer already selected criteria.Example criteria are:City, Zip, County, Street, Use Code, Mail Address, Mail City, Mail Zip Code, Mail State, Sale Place, Trustee, Trustee Phone, Txfr Month, and Title Co

Fixed issues related to namig a list "0".It's no possible to create and delete lists named "0"

You can now remove properties from lists that contain a #, ? or / in the name

Resolved issues with list names longer than 50 characters such as longer names not being recognized as dynamic lists.The fix for this removes the ability to create lists longer than 50 characters (done in a prior release) and all exising lists with names longer than 50 characters have been truncated (new in this release).

Property Profile will no longer reset to the top when adding Notes, Photos or Files on the Details view.

Improved the experience of uploading files (Photos, Files, Documents).The web app now checks to make sure files are 20MB or smaller before uploading, the service has better error messages, pictures are validated as the correct format (we only allow jpg) and the generic error message if the server does not respond is improved.

Legacy Search list view results now update when you save properties.The icons will get stars and the filter bar numbers will update.

"New Listing" alerts will not be sent out unless there is an active listing.This resolves an issue where users were getting stale alerts when we received records that were new to us.Note that this was fixed previously, but not included with prior release notes.

Legacy Search results will no longer display "none" for Interest Level and Status Level.The column will now be blank if not set.

Fixed an issue where if a user added a Map Location to Search Options, then removed that option, the search would not work.

Auction counts from Saved Properties should now match the search results when clicking on them

Fixed issue where the legend from Explore would display over Settings

The Foreclosure > Mortgage > Foreclosing Loan Position and Transfer > All Transfers > Transfer Month criteria in Make a List can now be selected.

Fixed issue where the search results map measurement info box would persist over Search Options

Resolved issue were List-based alerts don't alert on sale date or opening bid changes

Fixed cosmetic issue where the Expand icon for search results was changing to Restore and not back to Expand

Fixed cosmetic issue in Settings > Billing where the Transactions would cover the User Agreement text and link

Fixed issues around changing Member/Admin status in team settings

Fixed issue with being able to enable Report Branding from Settings > Report Branding

Fixed cosmetic issue with the Share icon in legacy search not being aligned with the other icons

Fixed the chip labels for some Owner fields in Make a List

Fixed the InForeclosure status for Property Profile reports

Saved searches should correctly remember the units used for Raidus

The share button in List settings is now disabled for static lists

Fixed Explore report to always show the map.This was broken for Mobile clients

Improved how Find works within List View.It should now let the user complete typing before filtering and doing other strange things

Adding/Removing columns in List list view now works like in legacy search.You can add/remove multiple columns without needing to open the menu each time.

Added measures to prevent users adding properties to the same list as the alert for that list triggered.Note that it's still possible if a list uses the Within List criteria.

Updated the Google Maps link for Directions from Property Profile to use Google's latest recommended method. For some people, this will improve the match for Current Location.For others, it will be worse.

Known Issues:

Using Route from List list view does not validate you have properties selected or that you have 23 or less selected.This can result in nothing happening when you click Route or in getting an error in the route report.

Property Profile map legends can persist when returning to Explore from Property Profile

For very large lists (thousands), using Lists Map view can have very poor performance.This happens after you zoom in past the point clusters to individual property icons.In some instances, the browser needs to be refreshed or closed/re-opened to become responsive

Quick Search > Radar ID fails to match if the Radar ID is preceeded with spaces.It works with trailing spaces.

Filters for Owner Quick Search do not submit a search using the Enter key

Quick Search > Owner > Name error handling incorrectly states that the name must be Last, First.We support either order

There is no Cancel box on the Alert Defaults dialog.

 

3.2.2 Hotfix Android Mobile App (January 10, 2018)

Improved the display of Due Now and Next Bill Date values in the Change subscription dialog for dealing with scenarios such as trial users subscribing and for some cases of upgrading/downgrading packages.  This does not provide a path for trial users to change packages within their trial period.

3.2 Android Mobile App (January 5, 2018)

The 3.2 release for Android app is mostly the addition of support messaging regarding subscription package level access to certain features or data. All known issues were resolved.
