This week saw the 100th version of our Property Import add on get released. In this post we’ll look back at some of the latest versions and the key features included.
The very first version of the Property Import add on was released back in January 2016 and it’s only functionality was to do a manual BLM import. Skip forward to today and you can now automatically import properties from pretty much every third party estate agency software provider there is.
It’s come a long way and we’re proud of how many formats we can now support, as well as how robust it is. This is probably why it’s by far our most popular add on.
There’s been a lot of new functionality and bug fixes in the last few versions which you can see from the changelog below:
= 1.1.0 = * Corrected issue with new 'Only import updated properties' option in Reapit / JET format * Added link to logs to download processed BLM files to assist with support = 1.0.99 = * Added new option to Reapit / JET format to only import updated properties * Added support for commercial properties to Reapit / JET format * Added support for multiple residential property types in Reapit / JET format * Catch invalid SOAP calls in Reapit / JET feed which would cause fatal error * Fixed availability mapping in Agency Pilot format * Added 'OfferAccepted' to default list of availability mappings in Dezrez JSON format * Append floors and tenancy schedule to full description in Realla format * Correct commercial rent frequency in Vebra format. Don't just default to pa * Declare support for WordPress version 4.9.8 = 1.0.98 = * Added additional warning when deleting import that has on market properties.
