Have you checked out RAHB’s new Matrix 7.0 MLS® System yet?
Logging in to Matrix
Login to RAHB’s Matrix system through http://my.rahb.ca – your new single sign on (SSO) dashboard with links to RAHB’s Matrix, the regional Matrix system, Fusion (for now), RAHB’s membership resources and REALTOR® tools. Login as you normally would for your current SSO or Fusion, then use the RAHB Matrix button to go to Matrix – no further login is required.
First things first
The first thing to notice about the new RAHB Matrix 7.0 is that the home page is quite different from the home page in Fusion, and even a little different from your home page in the regional Matrix system. RAHB beta testers gave us valuable input about how best to organize the home page for RAHB users.
The best way to become familiar with your RAHB Matrix home page is to thoroughly explore all of the main menu tabs and widgets.
Here’s a short list of where to find the things you might use most:
- Links to RAHB Education/Account Services, GeoWarehouse, WEBForms®, CONNECT, REALTOR Link® and the CREA DDF dashboard are found under the drop-down menu in the Tools tab.
- Links to OREA Standard Forms and Clauses and Education, ca, OREA, REALTOR.ca, and RECO are found under the Links tab as well as the External Links homepage widget.
- Also in the Links tab/External Links widget are links to Tax and Zoning Information, CREA sites, OREA sites, RAHB’s public website, blog and MLS® Rules and Regulations and more – be sure to check them out.
Enjoy your journey through your new Matrix home page!
Contacts and saved searches
One of the first things you will want to do after you’ve become at least a little familiar with your Matrix 7.0 homepage, is check your contacts and saved searches. These have been moved from Fusion and the regional Matrix system to the RAHB Matrix system.
If you have been using only Fusion for your searches and maintaining your contact list, it is especially important that you make sure all the information in your saved searches and contacts is correct because some of the fields in Fusion do not line up with fields in Matrix. If information is missing or incorrect, you will want to edit the information and save it. It is important that you turn ON your saved searches in Matrix and turn OFF your saved searches in Fusion. (When RAHB members first accessed the regional system, all saved searches were moved over to the regional system. If you haven’t turned on those searches and have continued to use your Fusion saved searches, then those searches in the regional system will still be there, and will be moved over.)
Find out more about how to find and update your contacts and saved searches in this How-To Guide.
