 +Market reports display a condensed view of active, under contract, and sold listings. These represent snapshot of the market and are updated daily. Aggregate data - averages such as list price and days on market - are also displayed for each section. ​
 +
 +Leads can save a market report just as they would a search. ​ This will subscribe the lead to a monthly market report update email. ​ When a user signs up for your site on a market report page, they will be automatically subscribed to monthly emails with market report updates. ​ Leads signing up on a market report will be placed in the //property search round robin//.
 +
 +There are two ways to create a market report.
 +
 +  - Through the site backend, you can create pre-defined market reports
 +  - Through a market report advanced search, a lead can create their own market report
 +
 +**Note**: Market Report pages are available exclusively on the new site designs: miranda, miranda-thin,​ and molly.

 +
 +===== Create a Market Report =====
 +
 +Using your site's backend, creating a market report is simple. ​ Look for this link to get started:
 +
 +{{:​marketreportlink.png?​500|}}
 +
 +Then click the "Add Market Report Page" button
 +
 +{{:​createmr.png?​700|}}
 +
 +Creating a market report is similar to creating other content pages on your site.
 +  * //Parent//: For (optionally) organizing pages in a hierarchy. For example, imagine if you wanted to organize some of your content pages like this:
 +    * yoursite.com/​**sports_and_rec**/​ - general information about sports and recreational activities available in your area
 +      * yoursite.com/​sports_and_rec/​**golf**/​ - information about golf courses
 +      * yoursite.com/​sports_and_rec/​**tennis**/​ - information about tennis courts
 +    * In the above example, the **sports_and_rec** page is at the top of the hierarchy, so it shouldn'​t have a parent selected. On the other hand, both the **golf** and **tennis** pages are under **sports_and_rec** in the hierarchy, making that page their parent. In addition, child pages can themselves have children and so on to form a treelike organizational structure.
 +  * //Title//: Short blurb that appears at the top of the market report page and in the title bar of the browser. ​ It is also the first line of Google search result.
 +  * //Meta description//:​ A longer blurb that appears as the second part of a Google search result.
 +  * //Meta keywords//: A comma-separated list of keywords, also for use by search engines.
 +
 +{{ :​google_metas.jpg?​900 |}}
 +
 +  * //Anchor Text / Page Name//: The name of the page as it will appear when linked to from another page.
 +  * //Slug//: The last part of the URL of the page. For example, http://​www.example.com/​something/​something-else/​**this-is-the-slug**. This field is automatically derived from the **Anchor Text / Page Name**, so you don't need to worry about it unless you want to configure it manually.
 +  * //​Content//:​ The "​meat"​ of the page. Can contain a wide variety of elements including headers, paragraphs of text, links, lists, and images. For a detailed explanation,​ see [[content_wysiwyg|editing content fields using the WYSIWYG editor]].
 +  * //Create Search//: (**required**) This search will select the properties displayed in the Active, Under Contract, and Sold sections of the market report.
 +  * //Number of Properties//:​ You can show from 1 to 50 properties in each section. ​ Choose how many you would like.
 +  * //Sold within//: In the Sold section of the market report, properties will only be listed if they were sold more recently than the value you select.
 +
 +===== Create a Market Report Advanced Search =====
 +
 +On a market report content page, you will see: {{ :​custom-market-report.png?​450 |}}
 +
 +Clicking "​Create your own market report"​ will take you to the advanced search page.  From there, choose criteria for your custom report and click "Go to Market Report." ​ Simple as that.
 +
 +Custom market reports can be saved. ​ Once they are saved, they will appear in the user's Saved Search page.  From there, the market report can be edited, renamed, or deleted just like saved searches.
 +
 +{{ :​edit-market-report.png?​600 |}}
 +===== Linking to Market Reports =====
 +
 +You will want to link to your Market Report pages like you would any other Area or Content page.  Add this link to your [[navigation_bars_screencast|Navigation Bar]] or [[sidebars_screencast|Sidebar]].
 +
 +You will also want to create a link to your Market Report Advanced Search as this search will not be displayed with the other Advanced searches. ​ Use /​search/​market_report_search/​ as the URL when linking to the Market Report Advanced Search.
 +
 +{{::​marketreportsearch.png?​600 |}}
 +
 +{{::​mrsearch_02.png?​900 |}}
 +===== Other Market Report Backend Options =====
 +
 +  * //Force Signup on Market Report Results// - (in //Site Settings// on the //Advanced Site Settings// tab) set this to true to force signup when a user creates a custom market report. ​ The default is to not require signup to view a custom market report.
 +  * //Market Report Capture Form Configuration//​ - change the company name, address and logo for the signup form shown on Market Report pages.
