Copy/Clone a listing and photos


To clone a listing :

Go to Add/Edit and click Add New (in the first section):



Select the property type of the new listing:



At the top of the Add a New Cross Property Listing page- click Fill From Existing Listing :



Enter the MLS number of the old listing in the MLS Number from which to Fill field and hit Fill From .


*** Note: You cannot clone from an INC listing ***


Many, but not all, of the fields will populate from the old listing. You need to go through all of the tabs (especially the Contract tab) and verify the fields that have populated, and fill in those that have been left blank. You may save it as Incomplete so you can work on it later, or save it as Active once all the required fields are filled in.


Cloning a listing does not copy over any of the supplements. You must manually upload supplements, including the listing agreement, after you have finished cloning the listing.


Cloning will not copy the photos from the old listing. You can copy the photos separately by going to Manage Photos after you have saved the new listing (the instructions are below):



To copy photos :

*** Note: due to potential photo copyright issues, it is strongly advised that you only copy photos from a previous listing if you were the source of the photos for the original listing. If someone else provided the photos, even if they are a member of the SmartMLS Verified Photographer Network, you are technically allowed to copy photos, but you must also have a license agreement with the photo source providing you the authority to use the photo(s) on the new listing. ***


You can only copy photos to a listing that does not currently have any photos on it.

You cannot copy photos from an INC listing.

Go to the Add/Edit and select the listing to which you want to copy photos.

Go to bottom of the Modify Listing screen and click Manage Photos:



At the top of the Add/Edit Photos screen, click the Click here to import photos from another listing link (above the Browse button) to import photos from an existing listing:



Enter the list number of the old listing and click Import.  It will pull all the photos from the old listing.  You may delete photos that you do not want on the new listing, or keep them all.  Click Certify and Save when you are done.


You may only copy photos from a listing if it is within your organization.
