Subscribing to Auto-Notify

The Auto-Notify feature allows you to set up a personal search agent that will automatically send you new ads that match the keywords or the full database criteria that you define here. You will also be able to set the number of days that your personal search agent should operate before it automatically expires. To set up an Auto-Notify agent, click on the Auto-Notify link in the navigation bar. From the Auto-Notify options page, click on the Create Agent button. You will be prompted to log in. If you have already registered, you can enter your username and password in the logon form. If you haven't already registered, you must register in order to use this feature. Once you have logged in, specify the keywords and other criteria (such as the category or type of ad) that your search agent will use when looking at new ads. If you want to define a sophisticated database search, you can do so by clicking on the "Advanced Search" link. You will then be able to set up a sophisticated search agent specifying specific criteria, such as the city, number of bedrooms, specific amenities, or other options, depending on the section that you are in. You can also specify ranges, such as retrieval only of ads for apartments that cost between $600 and $900 per month, that have at least one but not more than three bedrooms, that are located in a specific city or neighborhood, and that have a fireplace and are near mass transit. As you can see, the Auto Notify feature is quite powerful. When new ads are posted to the system that match your criteria, you will be notified by e-mail, including a link to the ad.

You can modify or delete your Auto-Notify search agent at any time by clicking on the Auto-Notify link in the navigation bar and then choosing Modify Agent or Delete Agent from the Auto-Notify options page. You will need to logon to the system in order to modify or delete your profile, so please make a note of your username and password, as well as the number of your Auto-Notify profile.
