“Screws fall out all the time. The world is an imperfect place.” – John Bender, The Breakfast Club. While these immortal words may be true, we’ll always attempt to keep your attendance record perfect at RESO – something ol’ John Bender wouldn’t know anything about.

Thus, we’re notifying you of a workgroup meeting change from this week to next week, and we’re giving you fair warning that you’ll miss out on yet another incredible sponsored RESO conference t-shirt if you don’t register for RESO Remote Encore by Friday, September 18.

The rest of the weekly e-newsletter is pretty good, too. Have a great week.

RESO Remote: Encore – Call for Musicians

RESO is lucky enough to have some musicians in our workgroup midst, and we’ve invited several of them to help us out with our musical conference theme. But we’re feeling greedy for more fine musical offerings and want to put out our feelers for more #RockYourRESO fun this fall.

Cross-Platform Interoperability Workgroup Meeting | September 8, 2020

Meeting Summary: The group first received a presentation about achieving a RESO Standard Event Model, a topic that has now been shared across multiple workgroups that have been working on event-related projects. From there, the group worked heavily on visualizations of a transaction story, seller journey and even an industry road map, while also discussing plans for what will be presented at the next RESO conference. | CALL NOTES

Action Items:

  • Turn the RESO: Buyer Offer on Listing visualization into the who/what/where/why/how chart sample from the RESO Standard Event Model; share in the Technical Track: Standard Event Model Discussions Forum.
  • Focus on linking items: Property vs. People, Document vs. Property; share in the Technical Track: Standard Event Model Discussions Forum.
  • Share the Seller Journey / Industry Road Map document in a Discussions Forum.
  • Convert any existing Excel spreadsheets into Google Sheets and get them posted on the workgroup home page in Confluence.
Transport Workgroup Meeting | September 8, 2020

Meeting Summary: RCP-032 was reviewed, which proposes the creation of a dedicated resource to be used for enumerations rather than requiring they be defined in metadata as they have been historically. Progress on the Data Dictionary and Web API specifications and testing tools was then reviewed, followed by a discussion of adding support for an OpenHouse expansion in Property (Listing) records. | CALL NOTES

Action Items:

  • Post discussion items in the Transport discussion forum regarding RCP-032 and the Web API Core and Data Dictionary specifications.
UPI Registry Subgroup Meeting | September 9, 2020

Meeting Summary: This first official UPI Registry Subgroup was lightly attended, but it packed a full lunch in terms of capturing unfiltered ideas from a variety of roles and organizations within the real estate industry, including executive, managerial, technical, nontechnical, marketing, entrepreneurial, vendor, MLS, association, brokerage and even pseudo-governmental. It was an honest renewal of the UPI Registry discussion. | CALL NOTES

Action Items:

  • Get the UPI Workgroup home page cleaned up and current in terms of working documents.
