How it works
Keep in mind, you can always call us and we’ll help you step-by-step through any of these tasks. We’re here to help!

In your IDX Control Panel, select the fields you’d like to include from your board’s available Geographic Search Criteria. You can also customize the default text for the Location field to show what location types are available – for example, if you’ve added a Neighborhood, change the default text to “Enter city, zip code or neighborhood”.

When a site visitor types in a location for a house or condo search on either the Basic or Quick Search form, autosuggest will include all options from the field you selected.

Keep in mind, you can always call us and we’ll help you step-by-step through any of these tasks. We’re here to help!

1) In your IDX Control Panel, go to Setup, then Search Settings, then Location Customization

2) Select the areas you’d like added to your Location field’s autosuggest from the available geographic fields. These vary from board to board, and the quality of the data can vary as well. You can preview the entries in each field.Customization in Control Panel

3) When data from a selected field appears in autosuggest, the field type will be included in parentheses for clarity. For example, a school district entry would appear as “Springfield (School District)” to differentiate this entry from the city of Springfield. If you wish to change the display name for a field you’ve selected, please enter it in the Display Name field. Make this field empty if you’d prefer to not display the field type.

4) Save changes.

5) Add the new location types to the default text to let your site visitors know what criteria are available to search and save changes.
