Last Modified:         July 31, 2013


Applies to:                Pro Gold i2 3.xx


Purpose:   File Maintenance is an option located in the Properties Menu that allows for the deletion of property and contact records. It also updates the status of listing property records to “Expired” status when the expiration date has passed and the status is “Listed”.  It will delete properties and/or contacts subject to the rules noted below and set the property status to “Expired”.  When the File Maintenance option is selected, these changes will be made together without prompting. Note: Once a record is deleted, it cannot be restored.


Procedure:  Actions required to run File Maintenance:


•          Step 1:  Set Contact/Property Status:


-          Property Record

•          Select the property record in Work with Properties and set the status to “Deleted”.

•          For more information, refer to Knowledge Base Article 4136 

•          Note: A property will not be deleted if there is any Escrow, Marketing, or Showing activity in the property record


-          Contact record

•          Step 2:  How to Run File Maintenance:
