Best Practices for Agents: Archive your Transactions in Instanet

This is the first of several posts in a series, Best Practices for Agents, that will include a wide range of topics. A few to look forward to in 2018 are: “Saving Docs to the Cloud,”  “Creating a Passcode for your Smartphone” and “Updating Your MLS Profile.”

Why Do I Need to Archive My Transactions?

If you leave your current brokerage, all your transactions will stay with your former broker and be automatically transferred out of your Instanet account. Creating and saving an archive of each and every transaction as soon as it closes is an important best practice for every real estate agent!

You can archive your Instanet transactions in one easily downloadable PDF document! The archive will include details about the listing, contact information and all signed documents. It’s easy to do!

Let’s Get Started

Log into the Launchpad (https://launchpad.nnrmls.com) and click the Instanet button. In Instanet, find your transactions by either using the Transactions widget on the Agent Dashboard or click on the House in the left toolbar to access the full list of transactions:Click on the House Icon
When you’re in a transaction you want to archive, click on the three stacked dots in the upper-right corner:
Click the stacked dots

In the dropdown list, click on Archive:
Click the Archive link

Now click the blue Generate New Archive button:
Generate New Archive

You’ll see a message hovering in the right corner of the page notifying you that your transaction is being archived:
Archive Being Processed

After a moment, your screen will automatically refresh and you’ll see a new hovering message that your transaction was successfully archived:
Archive Complete

To find the new archive, click on the three stacked dots and click Archive again:
Click the Archive link

You will then be able to save your archive to your computer or another device by clicking on the blue Download Archive link. A multi-page pdf will be produced that contains transaction details, contact information, and documents. Be sure to check your download folder:
