Sometimes we get shiny object syndrome. We admit it. We chase after things like ShowMojo PHONE, best-of-breed lockbox solutions, and document verification. You know, things that go beyond digital scheduling and marketing that no one – or few people, at best – asked us to do. It happens.
You wouldn’t believe the bumps that got us here. We’ve had product leaks the size of New Jersey. We pre-released hundreds of units to meet demand for a product we had yet to announce… And now we’re at journey’s end, and what do we have to show for it? Read on!
What’s a lightning feature? It’s a not-so-huge new thing we got done lightning quick. You were thinking lightning Eureka, weren’t you? Ah, were that only the case.
Here’s a long-standing feature request: “We don’t show to people who don’t meet our screening criteria. Can we keep them from scheduling showings?” Have you asked this question – or up-voted this feature request? Well, we have a beta for you.
Sorry for being gone so long. We’ve been ridiculously busy working on stuff that is as critical as it is mind-numbingly mundane.
Dr. Killjoy scored a major victory this week. After days of rumination we could come up with nothing silly, amusing, nor even mildly entertaining about a heatmap.
This afternoon we switched on Showing Feedback Surveys for all accounts! This isn’t a beta. And there are no hoops to jump through. After a showing is completed, the schedule-a-showing page automatically becomes a feedback survey. It just works.
Up to now, there was no good way to make sure a prospective renter secured the home after a lockbox showing. Well, as of today, ShowMojo is your first line of defense, no matter what lockbox you’re using.
Well, that subject line doesn’t easily roll off the tongue. But wedging document verification into an ordinary screening question was a half-marathon from easy – so an open beta is well deserved.
