The following FAQ represent features, behaviors, and business rules that may not be initially apparent to new users.

What’s the most important strategy to remember when searching in Data Co-op?
Data Co-op is a map centric application. Only those listings whose location is represented on the current map view will be retrieved under the “List” tab. This is regardless of the actual geographic location indicated in the criteria section. The displayed map view location supersedes all other criteria.
I don’t see fields that I normally search for.
All Data Co-op users around the country utilize the same set of criteria. Your area’s specific listing format has been integrated into this standardized format. The Data Co-op consolidates numerous fields that contain external features into a common field call Exterior Features. Certain search fields in Data Co-op actually search a number of fields, for example the Remarks freeform keyword search field searches the Public remarks and the Agent Remarks fields at the same time. The same rule applies to the Features search criteria.
I don’t recognize the areas listed in the region criteria list.
When searching Region and County you will find that the list changes dynamically depending on your map view. The Pick list will automatically display the regions and counties that are currently being viewed on the map.
After Moving Gadgets around on the screen will Data Co-op remember my view the next time I login?
Rearranged Gadgets remain in their new position across sessions and computers until moved again by you.

Remember to click the “Update Results” button after changes have been made to your criteria.

The “New” branding represents those listings that were added to the native MLS system within the last 30 days.
The “Favorites” tab list ”Recently Viewed” listings. How does Data Co-op populate this list?
Recently viewed listings are created automatically when you select the detail view for a particular property.
I receive 0 or no listings found every time I attempt to search.
