Preview Mode for Subscriptions

Preview mode enables you to better control which listings your contacts receive in subscription emails. You can preview the listings that meet the search criteria for a subscription and select which ones to send to the contact. Only the listings you approve will be included in subscription emails and be shown in the contact's news feed.

  1. Click Subscriptions under Contacts on the menu.

  2. Click on the subscription that you want to modify.

  3. On the Edit Subscription page, click the Enable Preview Mode check box.

  4. Click Save at the bottom of the page.

  1. Click Subscriptions under Contacts on the menu. In the Preview column, "On" is displayed for subscriptions that have preview mode enabled.

  2. Click on the subscription that you want to modify.

  3. On the Edit Subscription page, clear the Enable Preview Mode check box.

  4. Click Save at the bottom of the page.

When preview mode is turned on for a subscription, you will receive emails when you have listings to approve.

  1. Click the link in the email to begin the approval process. A search results page will open where you can work on behalf of the contact.
