Once connected to MLS via RETS, additional tabs will become available. Please click on second tab - Fields configuration. Here you need to select resource, class and entity values in drop-down lists.
Important: Fields maping is the most important part of the plugin configuration. Please do not hurry up with it and do everything carefully.
If you map MLS fields to the wrong Estatik field and will make import, these fields will be imported wrong and as result you will not find he required information about property. So please follow our instructions or order additional service and we will set it up for you.
When we need to import properties, we select Resource: property. Field Classes will provide us with a list of property types - Residential, Lots/Land/Farm, Multi-Family, Commercial.
It is important to select the required fields as different class will give you different list of fields. Let's select Residential class and Entity - Property.
Click Submit button. You will get a drop-down list of MLS fields available for the Resource Property, and class Residential. Use quick access search and type the fields. Please note that the MLS fields can be named differently and if you are uncertain whether you need this field or not, omit it and do not add. There can be numerous empty fields and it is not necessary to add them to your website.
So you need to add MLS field and map it to Estatik field like displayed below:
Below is the list of most common MLS fields and corresponding Estatik fields:
MLS field = Estatik field:
MLS number = Property MLSID

Please note that there are some crucial fields that must be assigned correctly. They are - MLS Number - without it being properly assigned as indicated above, you will not be able to make import properly.
