The most significant update to NorthstarMLS Matrix 7.0 (which is now live), are the redesigned Client Portal displays. With Responsive Design, the new Client Portal will automatically adjust to optimally display listings on your client’s device.
Though many other MLS’s using Matrix completely eliminated their previous portal displays, NorthstarMLS insisted that they retain our previous portal displays too (though they are not responsive design). The “three dots icon” can be hidden if the user is holding their mobile phone vertically. Tilting the device to landscape view (best for viewing the single line display) will reveal the three dots icon for selecting those additional display options.
The animation below demonstrates how this works. Tapping on the three dots, highlighted in the red box, will open more display options to pick from.
Note: Users viewing listings in the Client Portal from an iPad or tablet should not encounter this, as the screen is larger than a mobile phone and is able to show more on the screen. Displays such as the Portal Single Line display are going to be best viewed on a desktop/laptop, but will work on a mobile device. However, this display does not support responsive design.
