The FTP Data Push is an automated process that enables a member office/agent or third party to receive listing data from the MLS. All listing data sent within the FTP Push is based on the settings determined by the MLS staff within the FTP Utility located in Navica Revolution. The FTP Data Push is primarily used to provide only a single offices listings for use in a third party application. The FTP Data Push is NOT an IDX solution; it will not automatically exclude listings belonging to offices that are opted-out of IDX. The push does not send listings that have been selected to be Excluded From Internet upon data entry in Navica.
The FTP Utility that is provided to the Board/Association allows the MLS staff to select the listing fields and statuses, as well as which office they wish to include in the data push. This utility enables the MLS staff to set up each push separately, so that only the data requested by the third party is sent. The frequency for the data push may be defined as either daily or weekly.
To set up each data push, a signed FTP Data Push Agreement, which is provided by SEI, must be completed. The board office should contact SEI for a quote on the monthly fee associated with this push, as well a copy of the FTP Data Push Agreement that is needed to proceed.
