Detailed Triangle MLS Sign-up Instructions
The Triangle MLS has a specific process each new client must complete before adding an IDX search on their site. The instructions below detail this process.
Sign up Authorization Processing
Dakno is an approved IDX vendor for TMLS data. New clients can go through the approval process online at http://idx.trianglemls.com/setup. If for any reason the instructions are unclear, do not hesitate to contact TMLS for help. Unfortunately, we do not have access to agent and broker only pages of the TriangleMLS setup site. As a result, it is best to contact TMLS directly with questions regarding the setup.
Dakno might not be available as a choice for all agents. To find out if Dakno is available, go to the sign-up section of http://idx.trianglemls.com/setup. Dakno will have to be approved by the your broker if it is not there. IDX vendors are selected by the firm in the broker's Internet Data Preferences page.
If Dakno is available to the agent as a vendor choice:
To see if Dakno is available as a vendor, go to the TMLS Internet Data Preferences Setup page http://idx.trianglemls.com/setup and click “Online Signup.” This should be found in the “Agents/Non-Principal Brokers” section. Using either “Choose Agent Preferences” or “Online Signup,” the client can choose Dakno Marketing to add the IDX website. Submit and save the change before logging out.
If Dakno is NOT available to the agent as a vendor choice:
The agent's principal broker will need to make the following changes to add Dakno Marketing as a vendor: Login to the broker section of the TMLS setup and “Check All” or check agent names individually (details can be found in the Broker/Office Clients section). When this is done, agents can go back to the preceding step.
Reference this screenshot for more information.
Broker / Office Clients
The broker can complete the authorization process by going to the TMLS Internet Data Preferences Setup page.
To login, click the "Vendors" link found below "Principal Brokers-In-Charge". Then select Dakno as a vendor by checking the box next to Dakno Marketing. Make sure to continue/save before moving on.
From there, go to the "Firm Choices for Firm's Agents" link. Click the “Dakno Marketing" vendor link. "Indicate how each vendor may be used by your firm and/or agents" will then appear. Choose “Check All” to let all agents access Dakno or simply choose "Firm/Office Site". Then save/submit this page.
To add a new site or associate one that already exists with Dakno, go to the "Websites" section of the main TMLS Setup page. Add a new website or use the existing website entry in order and select Dakno Marketing as the vendor for that website. This must be done so the choice can go to our approval section.
After completing, make sure to save all selections. To ensure all changes were saved, it's recommended to log out and log back in.
Important Information about the Approval Process
We do not receive a notification from The TMLS Internet Data Preferences System when we have been selected. It can take 24 hours for Dakno to appear as an approved member after you have chosen us using the TMLS setup preferences system.
Please let us know when you have completed these steps in the TMLS system. We will then be able to finalize the approval.
