SkySlope Gets Faster, Better, Stronger
If there is one thing every user wants from their most frequently used websites, it’s speed. Here at SkySlope, we have taken an already smooth and practical feature, the global search bar, and improved upon it.
For those unfamiliar, you’ve always been able to search active Listings and Transactions via the magnifying glass at the top of the page. However, up until now, the search feature only queried active Listings and Transactions, not files that had been archived or fully canceled.
With this new update, the magnifying glass searches every section of your account, including archives and fully canceled files, allowing users to find any document they need regardless of where it’s been filed in the system.
As you know, it’s possible to have multiple versions of the same property in your account; for example an older canceled offer, and a new pending offer. This is why we designed the search function to separate Archives and Canceled Contracts from the global search; we didn’t want users to get mixed up with which file they’ve found. But after receiving feedback, we realized that our users needed a complete and comprehensive search feature.
So how does having both results appear at the top not complicate things? We’ve upgraded how those search results appear. Now when you search for a file, you’ll be presented with a more clear summary of those results. A canceled file will display that it’s canceled in the search results drop-down, and a file in Access Archives will indicate it’s ‘archived.’ Furthermore, the current status of any live file is also displayed, such as Active, Expired, Pending, or Closed (but not yet archived).
That’s not where the new features stop. Once you’ve found the file you’re looking for, it’s now easier to get precisely where you need to go. Historically, clicking on the search result you want will take you right into the Checklist page where all the critical info lives. With this update, we added a “Go to Documents” link so you can elect to go directly to the Documents tab instead.
Of course, the cherry on top of all these new features is the speed upgrade. We’ve engineered our new search bar to be lightning fast. As you type into the search bar, the system will begin to query anything that matches what you’ve typed. The less you type, the more results you’ll likely see in the drop-down. The more you type, the narrower the results get and the faster you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for. Just another way SkySlope makes life easier and smoother for all of our users.
