How to set up Out of Office messages

30 NOV 2017

It’s the festive season and we’re sure that you will all be taking a little time off for some much needed R&R. While you’re out of the office it’s good to let potential clients and others know you’re not in and when you’ll be back. To put an “Out of Office” on for your emails just follow these easy steps:

1. Login to your webmail account - webmail.yourdomain.co.za

a. The username/email address is your full email address - user@domainname.co.za
b. The password is your normal email password

2. 
Click the roundcube option

3.
Choose Autoresponders from the dropdown menu

4. 
Click ‘Add Autoresponder’

5. 
Fill out as above

6. It’s always good to send a test email on the day the autoresponder is due to start just to double check that you get a response.

With your autoresponder now setup and you can go on holiday and rest in the knowledge that if someone emails you they will get all the information that they need. Have a wonderful festive season!

We are excited to let you know about our newly launched ‘Quick Notes’. It’s a fast, easy way to make notes on your properties.

Quick Notes for a property


It’s great for writing down viewings, interactions with the owner, negotiations, updates in the transfer process, mandate info, commission split info, owner info, interested buyer details and much more.

We have ensured that Quick Notes is easy to use on both mobile & desktop.

HomeHunt - an additional free portal for you!

15 AUG 2017

   

As usual, web-box have been working on quality portal partnerships for you and we’re excited to tell you that the properties on your web-box website are now also being automatically fed through to HomeHunt

The team who created HomeHunt are from HomeTimes. HomeTimes provides “unbiased and independent knowledge, advice and guidance on all facets of your home”. They have built up South Africa’s largest residential-focused property group on Facebook, which has over 311 000 followers.

HomeHunt will only include a property if they have its location. So in order for your property to appear you must select ‘mark gps coordinates’ or ‘mark address on the map’ in the upload/edit screen in your web-box admin console.


    


We hope you gain tremendous exposure from our new addition! And if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
