Hot Sheets - What is it?

The Hot Sheets allow searching for changes that have occurred during a specific date range. However, one difference with the Hot Sheets Search is you can establish an exact Date and Time Stamp to apply to your searches. Hot Sheet Searches are helpful in maintaining a stream of search results that do not provide overlapping information.


Where are they Found?

You can find the Hot Sheets by moving your mouse pointer over Property Search on the Navigation Menu at the top of the screen, and then selecting Hot Sheets from the list of available searches.
