ShowingTime Training Webinar Questions
If you enter your Buyer’s name in the ShowingTime “optional field” is it visible to the listing REALTOR® or just for your own records?
A: The buyer’s name in the “optional field” won’t be visible to the listing REALTOR®. This would be for your reference only to track your buyer’s activity (e.g. buyer tours you created, which properties you’ve shown them, etc.).
hat happens if you don’t answer the ShowingTime automated call?
f you are unable to answer the ShowingVoice call, the system will leave an automated voicemail message with a call back number so you can confirm or decline the appointment.
Can you overlap showing times?
ou can overlap your appointments in ShowingTime using the “Appointment Calendar”. If the time slot you clicked on has another appointment scheduled, clicking on it will open up some options for you to overlap your appointments or cancel your previous appointment.
Will we still be able to book a showing by calling brokerages or will we only be able to book through ShowingTime going forward?

hat happens if a listing doesn’t use ShowingTime?
f a listing doesn’t use ShowingTime, you will see a note letting you know the listing is not accepting online appointments. You can still add it to “ShowingCart” to help plan your buyer tour, but you’ll need to view the detail report in Matrix and follow the scheduling instructions entered by the listing REALTOR® there.
When using ShowingTime’s “SmartRoute”, how does the system know if we want to start at the office?

What happens when an appointment is declined and you have to reschedule?
he listing REALTOR® has the ability to propose a new time or give you instructions when to request a new appointment. You can then request a new time, or change the time based on the listing REALTOR’s® notes.

ou can go into ShowingTime and click the “I Have Requested” button under the “Showings” tab. From there you can propose new times, or cancel your existing appointments.
Q: Is there an option to have office staff book showings during office hours or do appointment requests have to go through REALTORS® only?
ShowingTime is a REALTOR®-to-REALTOR® scheduling tool, but if you have front desk managing appointments for your office’s listings, you can add their email address in the “Office Setup” tab from the side menu (visible to office users such as a broker or record) to be copied on appointment request notifications.
