What is a custom status?

Sometimes a listing is off-market for a few days and showings need to be prevented for a short time. With Front Desk, your office manager can set up custom statuses to prevent appointments temporarily or for a longer term. ShowingTime asks three basic questions when creating a custom status.
  • Is the listing showable?
  • Is there a listing agreement between the seller and the office?
  • Is the listing already sold or just a few steps away from being sold?

You can then add custom statuses by providing a name that your office will understand and choosing the correct combination of settings.

  • Is Showable - Is the listing available for an appointment?
  • Has Listing Contract - is everything setup between the seller and the listing office to allow of a sale?
  • Has Sales Contract - Is the listing sold or pending?



Please Note: Incorrect configuration of the status can block appointments or hide listings. You can work with ShowingTime Support to configure custom statuses.
