In Alto, a Custom Region can be set to add a customised search region to feed to your own website.

Custom regions are used in conjunction with your own website and they enable property seekers to further filter down their property search. Instead of only breaking down the search by area, you can create a more specific location within the area when applied to a property.

This article includes:

Adding a new Custom Region

  1. Click Tools on the main toolbar
  2. On the side menu, under System Tools, click System Administration
  3. Click Branches
  4. Click Edit on the chosen branch 
  5. Scroll down the page and click Custom Locations
  6. Click Create New
  7. In the Name field, type the location you want to add 
  8. Click Create
  9. Click Save

When the custom location is populated and In Use, it unlocks a new dropdown field below the Display Address on the Marketing top tab of a Property.

Setting the Custom Region

  1. Click Property on the main toolbar
