Every day we get at least several calls from people calling to find out why they aren't getting any showing notification emails. Most of the time (we try but we aren't perfect...) the "missing emails" are a problem on the agent/caller's end. Here is a few things to check if this happens to you:
1. Check your Spam/Junk Mail folders for the emails - most common
2. Check with your email provider to see if they filter/block any emails
3. If your provider does block emails, see if you can add us to a whitelist
4. As a test, make sure you are receiving emails from other people
If you try everything listed above and everything else you can think of, just give us a call and we can verify everything is AOK on our end. We track every email that is sent out to you so we can let you know if something is missing.
BookAShowing.com will be at the National Assocation of Realtors (NAR) Conference and Expo this year in Las Vegas, NV happening November 13th - 16th, 2007 in booth #4527. Register Now and plan to come to the expo and visit with the BAS team and learn more about our real estate showing and feedback system or to just say hi.
Also, we'll be conducting a game at the show and giving away cash! Make sure to stop by and find out how!
If you are attending the Council of MLS expo in Seattle October 10th - 12th, stop by and visit with Jeff Ratcliff from BookAShowing.com. He'll be there to answer questions, give product demonstrations and talk about any other things related to the best real estate showing appointment system around. Hope to see you there!

The text message alerts that are sent to agents when a showing appointment is setup or confirmed now includes the showing instructions as well (due to an agent's request). Since this will often make the text message longer than 120 characters, you may receive 2 or 3 text messages to include all of the showing instructions.

To make it easier and faster to access information about a listing (such as the calendar, reports, feedback, etc) we've added a new menu option for listings. Next to each listing you will see a new house icon that is the link to the new menu. To make room for the new menu option, we've condensed a few of the options from the listings page into the new menu. We hope you'll find this new menu helpful!
New House Icon:
Sample Listing Menu (for your own listing):
For listings of other agents, you'll still see a menu but with limited options such as add appointment and get directions.

We've released a BAS Gadget for iGoogle so you can integrate your showings, feedback, listings, clients and more into your iGoogle home page. The interface for the iGoogle gadget is the same as our BAS Mobile interface designed for your internet enabled mobile device and is designed for Agents only.
What can you do with BAS Gadget? You can add a new showing, check your schedule (even cancel if needed), check your listings, view and send showing feedback, access your clients, update showing requests, get driving directions and more.
