What’s coming with Paragon 5.69

On Wednesday, February 27, an update to Paragon will be available that will introduce several improvements to the system.

Maintenance to upgrade Paragon to version 5.69 will begin on Tuesday, February 26 at 10:00 PM and will last approximately eight hours. During this time, Paragon will be unavailable.

Here is a breakdown on what you can expect with the update via Black Knight, Paragon’s provider:

  1. Mapping – Listings no longer Re-Geocode if Pin is Manually Placed and Address is Updated

When the map pin is manually placed (geocode quality = 1.0), and the listing agent modifies the listing address, the system will not attempt to re-geocode the listing.

  1. Mapping – Option to Restrict the Search Map Boundary to User’s Selected Zoom Level

A new option has been added to Preferences > Search Options that, when checked, will restrict the Google search map to the user’s default zoom level.

  1. Collaboration Center – Miscellaneous Contact Activity Widget Changes

Based on valuable feedback, updates have been implemented in the Contact Activity Widget on the Paragon Home Page to include additional functionality and clarify several actions.

  1. CMA – View Subject Property from Comparables Search

From the ‘Comparables Search’ screen, a button is now available that allows you to display the Detail of a Subject Property to help better select the appropriate Comparables criteria.

  1. CMA – Create Subject Property from Existing Listing

When selecting an existing Listing Number as a CMA Subject Property, the Copy/Clone function will populate a copy of the listing as a Subject Property so it can be used/updated for the CMA.

  1. Search Results – Sale/Rented Price Included in Summary Stats Sold Price

The logic for generating the Sold Price Summary statistics on Search Results has been modified to include the sale/rental price for listings in Status Category 6 – Rented/Leased.

  1. Search – Action Buttons Added to Top of Quick Search Widget

The Count, Clear, and Search buttons on the Quick Search Widget are now available at both the top and bottom of the widget.
