We still have a few openings for the Matrix I and Orientation classes being held here at the CMLS office in Norwalk on Wednesday, August 10th.  There is a Matrix I session from 9:30-11:30am and Orientation from 12-1pm.
If you are a new GFC CMLS member and have yet to meet your class requirements, this is a golden opportunity.

CMLS on YouTube

In our continuing effort to enhance our training and learning materials, we have created our own YouTube channel to which we have begun publishing short, topic-specific videos.  Just go to and type GFC CMLS in the search bar to get to our channel.
Up to this point, all the uploads are how-to videos for Matrix functionality.  Going forward, we will be adding to the playlist regularly.
If there are specific topics you would like to see published (and not just Matrix-based either) please let us know.  We would love to make videos to help clear up any issues that may be causing confusion or frustration.

Updating Taxes in Matrix

If you're trying to use the new "Update Tax Data" link in Listing Input, but it blanks out all the fields except the two fields with the property ID, then that ID is incorrect. It's most likely that it has been changed.

You can run a Tax Search in Matrix for the property to find the correct property/tax ID. Then if you go back and try to update your listings taxes, it should work if you replace the incorrect property ID in both fields, and then click the "Click Here to Update Tax Data in the Yellow Boxes Above" link.

Construction outside our building

Just a heads up for anyone planning to come to the CMLS office for a class, to pay a bill, pick up a keybox, etc.
They are replacing the ramp that goes from Route 7 up to our building (101).  It will be closed until early September.  The best way to get to our building for the next couple of months is to use the ramp between buildings 201 and 301 and then drive around building 201 to get to our parking lot.
Also, they have blocked off some parking spaces with equipment and materials, so parking is even more tricky than usual.  If you are coming to our office, there is a chance you may not be able to park on the upper level.  You may need to go down to one of the lower parking levels in order to find a space.
We apologize for the inconvenience.  Sadly, it is beyond our control.
