Home Page Calendar
The home page calendar widget allows you to display important events, double click the desired day and click add to enter the event. Agents are able to add personnel events that only they can see. Brokers can add their own personnel events, and events that are viewable by their firm or office. MLS staff has all of the previous functionality plus they can add events for their MLS. Days with events are highlighted and can be viewed again with a double click.
It is important to note that if a date on your calendar is highlighted and you have not placed an event on that date, either your Broker or MLS staff have placed an event on the calendar they wish you to view.
The single arrowhead on each side of the current date will move the calendar forward or backward in one month intervals. The double arrowheads will move the calendar forward and backward in one year intervals.
Customizable Quick Action Links
Across the bottom of the Paragon Home Page you will find the customizable Quick Action Links. This will give you one click access to your six most used items from the Paragon Tool Bar.
Widget s are interactive graphic components of the Home Page interface. Each section of the home page, except the top Tool Bar and the bottom Quick Action Links, is in the Widget format. This allows the user to drag and drop each Widget to a location on the home page that suits them and their workflow.
Simply place your cursor over the blue header bar of the Widget so the cursor turns into the 4 directional arrows. Left click and hold the mouse button down and drag the Widget to its new location. Your Widgets will now stay where you have placed them, until you wish to move them to a new location.
Note: The location where you want to place a widget box must have room for that box.
