OfficeRoster Widget

The main benefit of the OfficeRoster widget is that it provides each Agent with a unique permalink page address for their Profile which also can be indexed by search engines.
Visually, the OfficeRoster widget is almost identical to the Brokers Widget.

The OfficeRoster widget will only work with these website environments:
WordPress - the widget shortcode must be installed on the specified /team page slug - so this page must be reserved. You can also add to additional pages, but interacting with the widget will redirect site visitors to the /team/ page
PHP sites - requires the Buying Buddy PHP API and also htaccess file modifications - see below
All other website systems should use the Brokers Widget.

Highlights

  • Displays a list of Office Locations.
  • Click to see Agents in an Office Location
  • See Agent's Profile page with their contact and personal details, active listings, and sold listings (where available)
  • Search to see Agents
  • There is deep-linking with permalinks (fixed URL where the slug is /team/..) for
    • Each Agent's Profile pages
    • The list of all Agents in a chosen Office

Uses

The OfficeRoster widget is primarily designed for Multi-User accounts with one or more Office Locations.

If you have a Multi-user account then this widget will display your Team or Office Roster.

If you have multiple Offices then this widget will present a view of all your Office Locations.

It will display your "About Me / Profile" using information coming from your User profile in your Leads and Contacts account.

This widget should only be installed on the designated page slug (/team).

NOTE: The presentation of the widget will depend on your account type. For example, if a single-agent account, then the widget JUST shows the profile for that agent.

Initial Views

The OfficeRoster widget has the following permalink views:

  1. Show all Offices Locations
  2. Show all Agents
  3. Show all Agents in one Office Location
  4. Show Profile Page for a specific Agent

1. All Office Locations View

Without any filters and on a root page (e.g. /team, or /xxxx') , the Office Locations View is the default widget view.

As long as you have OfficeRoster widget deployed on a /team/ page you could also add the OfficeRoster widget to any other page that might be there specifically to show your "Office Locations"

mydomain.com/team
or (for example)
mydomain.com/offices 

2. Agent Roster / Team View:

Show ALL Agents by going to the following URLs - do not create these pages!
The Buying Buddy Plugin and Widget code handles the request for you and creates the correct display based off the reserved slug of /team/

2a. Show all Agents (from all offices)

mydomain.com/team/office/search

2b. Show Agents for One Office Location

To show all agents in a specific office, first determine the ID of the Office Profile in your account and then create a link to a page like this

Show all agents in office (for example, ID =123)

mydomain.com/team/office/id/123/

See the screenshot above for example.

3. Agent Profile View

Go directly to an Agent's profile page by going to the following URL - do not create these pages!
The Buying Buddy Plugin and Widget code handles the request for you and creates the correct display.

Show profile page for Agent = Charlie Smith

mydomain.com/team/CharlieSmith

Note: This is case insensitive
Note: The age name is a concatenation of User's first name + User's last name from the User Profile

Depending on the type of account, and the URL used, the OfficeRoster widget displays

  • The Office Roster - i.e. a list of Offices in your Account
  • A Team / Office roster
    • Clicking "My Profile" will then show the profile page for that Agent)
  • A single User's profile
    • Photo and Contact details
    • Bio (if one written)
    • Featured Listings (if there are any)
    • Solds (if there are any)
