Creating a match group for Properties

Alto allows you to create match groups for properties. This means you can group records together based on a wide range of criteria. For example, you may want a list of the 3 bedroom properties for sale or rent available in a specific area.

Once these groups are created, any record that meets the set criteria will be included in that group. They can then be used in matching and for selecting properties when setting up Rolling screens.

You can also match groups of contacts to groups of properties, scroll through records, and send a letter or email to all landlords or tenants.

Creating a property match group from Tools

  1. Click Tools on the main toolbar
  2. On the side menu, under System Tools, click Match Groups
  3. Click Actions
  4. Click Add Property Group
  5. The New Match Group window opens. In the Group section, enter a Name for the group
  6. In the dropdown menu, instead of Private, click Shared All Branches (if you click Private or Shared Single Branch, you'll also need to select the person or the branch that will have access to this group)
  7. Tick the criteria that you require and complete the fields across the sections and tabs, i.e. tick For Sale or add the minimum and maximum number of Bedrooms 
    1. You can filter on many other fields using the tabs to select Property Details, Features, Vendor/ Landlord, Lettings, Dates and Bulk Actions. 
      If you decide to use a date filter, such as No Viewings and select a date of a month prior to the current date, the group will always report on records that have had no viewings in the last month so the date entered rolls forward automatically
  8. Click Save

If you refresh your browser, click Property on the main toolbar and click Groups in the top left, your match group will be in Shared Groups.
