Iconbar-findBuyersThis searches your applicant database for all applicants with a saved search that contains matching criteria and it displays a list of these applicants in a slide-out panel. Tick those applicants you wish to include in the email send-out and click “Send to Selected”. This sends a property information email based on a template set up by your BDP administrator. Any applicants previously emailed will be excluded, however if you wish to also see those names, click the “Previously contacted” icon at the bottom. Only applicants who have consented and supplied an email address are available for selection.
