RESO is rolling into 2021 on a skateboard with our jug of cranberry juice. We’ve had our first few workgroup meetings of the year, the new Confluence Cloud system is holding up nicely after a major overhaul and, as of this writing, 148 of you have filled out our UPI survey. Daylight hours are increasing by about two minutes per day, and that is proving to be a welcome source of motivation as we roll up our sleeves and dig into a full slate of objectives for the year ahead!
By now, we hope that you’ve taken the time to assure that you are good to go in RESO’s new Confluence membership collaboration system. | VISIT THE NEW SITE
The transition has been fairly smooth on our end. Members will need to log in like it’s a new site, but all past settings outside of your password should be the same, including your chosen workgroups.
Getting re-established is slightly awkward. Members will have to select “Can’t log in?” and follow the prompts to establish a fresh password.
IMPORTANT: We are only carrying over members that have logged in since July 1, 2019. All other existing members on the old system are dormant within the new system, but access can be granted upon request through Confluence or by contacting RESO. If you are not able to establish a presence with the email you have on file with RESO, we can help. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of you are listed in the new site by an odd name or the name of your organization. You may receive a request from us to use your first and last name for your profile. This helps us find you faster for workgroup attendance and discussions.
RESO UPI Survey Open Until End of Week!
Help our UPI Workgroup gain insightful information and get entered to win a sleek new Bluetooth speaker – it’s a win, win! But don’t wait – take the survey before the deadline (Friday, January 15)!
Thank you in advance for your help! | TAKE THE SURVEY
Refresher: Developed by RESO, the UPI is a standard way to reference a property. The specification includes support for identifying properties internationally in a hierarchical manner starting with the country. Using the UPI, we can reference a property in an unambiguous way, which is valuable for many use cases, including deduplication and globally unique references in different systems. Essentially, the UPI works by specifying a property’s “serial number” as a legally defined entity.
