Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

Q: Are MLXchange and Fusion going away?
A: NO - the only change will be the ADD/EDIT functions. Beginning Wednesday, December 9th ALL ADD/EDIT will be done in Matrix

Q: Will there be new listing input sheets for Matrix?
A: YES - new input sheets are already in place and each page reflects each one of the new input screens. These input sheets can be found at Miamire.com/MLS under MLS Help & Forms and on and Miamire.com/Matrix in the left hand column.

Q: Can my agents input a new listing directly into Matrix?
A: YES - the new Matrix MLS ADD/EDIT feature allows for very easy direct input...especially on a touch screen. Your agents can now Input the Listing at the Listing!

Q: My agents currently don't have ADD/EDIT capability with my company - does that change?
A: Yes, all SEARCH ONLY agents will be transitioned to a new access called Input Capability with Approval – This new functionality allows your previously SEARCH ONLY agents to now enter the listing information directly into Matrix, hit submit listing and now this listing is waiting for the office (Broker/Manager/admin) approval and MLS activation.  If your office does NOT want your agents to have Input Capability with Approval, please submit your request today to Bill@miamire.com to maintain your agents as SEARCH ONLY. If you, the Broker, want to change their access level to ADD/EDIT you can contact MLS@Miamire.com and authorize your agent(s) to have full ADD/EDIT access or ADD/EDIT with Approval (your agents can input the listing info but you, your designated assistant or admin has to approve online before it goes live/active)

Q: Do my admins or agents need to take a class to learn how to input a listing into Matrix?
A: YES - It is a different process than currently in MLXchange or Fusion. Classes are offered at all MIAMI locations. Your agents can find one near them: Miamire.com/calendar. We also offer special classes for admins and if you have 10 or more admins we can schedule one just for your admins! Contact Liset Hanes at: Concierge@Miamire.com or 305-468-7002
