Listing Portal – Display Documents in the Record Details
It is easy than ever to provide your website visitors with comprehensive information about your listings. Now you can display documents in various formats for each listing record in the listing portal! We support any formats. A good example might be a property floorplan or property leaflet.
By the way, have you checked our real estate brochure software Composer for Salesforce users that lets you generate various brochures, leaflets, reports using data and images from your CRM? A few clicks and you get your leaflet ready with up-to-date information!
Display Documents: How it Works
We created Documents section, which will display public documents associated with the selected records:
- Documents will display in a grid.
- Files are sorted alphabetically by Title.
- When the Title link is clicked the document will open in a new browser tab where the user can preview and/or download the file
- If no public documents are found, the system will instead display the following message: This record has no documents
Here is How to Add This Functionality to Your Org:
- Navigate to Setup -> App Builder
- For each configured listing object type (e.g. Property, Availability, or Listing) click the Edit link next to the associated Lightning Page
- Add the AscendixRE File Viewer Lightning Component to the page where desired
- Click the Save button

Here is How to Add Documents to Your Listing:

Now your files are displayed on the property listing portal!
