Rolling screens allow you to run a continuous display of your properties in your shop window. You can select the properties you want to show based on a range of search options, or, use match groups to select the properties you want to promote. 
For more information on Creating a match group for properties, click here

The steps below outline how to set up rolling screens, how to change the information that is displayed and how to include a price qualifier such as price on application, when needed.

This article includes: 

Set up Rolling screens

  1. Click Tools on the main toolbar
  2. In the dropdown menu, click Templates and admin
  3. On the side menu, under System Tools, click Export
  4. In the Search top tab, properties can either be selected based on Status, Areas, Rooms, Land & Parking, Property Types and Features
    1. Alternatively, click the Groups top tab and select a pre-defined Match Group
  5. Tick any Matching Properties 
  6. If required, tick Add Property Qualifier to Price to display this when the property is displayed
  7. Click Download


    If it's the first time you're setting up Rolling screens, it'll download a copy of the Rolling screens .zip file program, RollingV2.exe. Once downloaded, a shortcut can be set so you can easily use it in future. You'll need to extract the files and save them to a folder which you can name, e.g Rolling screens

  8. Extract the files and ensure the rsdata.xml file and the Images folder (which has a long name reflecting the date and time - 20200817165638) are in the same folder as the RollingV2.exe file
  9. Double click the application RollingV2 to start Rolling screens

Always save future downloads to the same folder.
