We use FlexMLS and I love it.  It's overall pretty easy and they offer lots of tutorials so help you with all the procedures.  Plus whenever they make a change you get an email with details of the change and how it affects you.  I keep a special file on my computer and whenever I get an email from them I file it there for future reference.  Hope this helps!  Welcome to FlexMLS!

We switched over to them a few years ago, and love it. I would suggest watching the videos, they are very helpful. Under the "help" tab on the right.

We have FLEX and I find it pretty easy to use but then anything takes a little time to get used to.  No real tips, just carve out some extra time out of you day to play around with it and if your board is offering training (they should) then take advantage of it.

We switched to Flex a couple years ago and it was quite a challenge for a lot of our members. First, take a couple hours and just play with it to get an idea of all the features. If your Board offers training, take it and check out the Q&As and videos in the Help section.

We have FlexMLS. Its confusing in the beginning, but gets easier. I had to sit and play with the features to understand how it worked. The class really didn't do much for me.

I am a member of the Knoxville MLS which uses flex.   I am really use to paragon and can maneuver there really well.

Flex has its challenges for me.  Just because I am more comfortable with what I know.  It works fine just not in the comfort zone with it yet.  This board did offer classes.  And I think there is some sort of answers there if you need help.  I called the board once when I first started it and they glady and promptly help me through it.

My recommendation is for you to take the classes that I'm sure your board is offering.  Flex is a very powerful MLS system with lots of neat tricks.

We use (C)Rappatoni MLS here (wouldn't recommed it, hence the "C" infront of the name).  I'm thinking of switching next year to a board with Flex though, so interested to see.  Heard lots of good things about it.

Our mls has been through a bunch of mls systems, but this is one I've not heard of Ginger. But we've changed systems at least 4 times since I joined Carolina MLS and I find it's just a matter of using it and practise.

It is okay if you're not into utilizing .the statistics and graphs of market trends. It leaves much to be desired in that regard for fast and meaningful reporting in my opinion.
