We’re working to make sure the transition to your new Greater Southern MLS Matrix system is as
smooth as possible. Even so, you will need to take a few steps the first time you log in.
If you’re currently logging in through your Association of REALTORS®’ website, this changed on 2/23. Simply go to https://greatersouthernmls.com/ and click on the MLS LOGIN button in the top-right corner. Enter your Username and Password and click “Login.”
Click here for first time login details.
Make sure all your contact information came over correctly. To access your contacts, go to the “My Matrix” tab and click on “Contacts.”
Click on your contact’s name to open their profile in a detail view. If needed, click on the blue pencil to edit.
Some of your saved searches will most likely change, since some field names are different in the new system. Review your searches for accuracy. Saved searches that carried over seamlessly will include the prefix “(ImportedSS).”
A small number of saved searches may not fully convert and will need your attention. Those will have an asterisk (*) in the search name.
To Edit a Saved Search
Go to the “My Matrix” tab and click on “Saved Searches”. Click on the search name or the drop-down arrow and select “Criteria”. Make the necessary changes and click “Save.”
The subsequent screen will allow you to:
When you are finished, click “Save.”
Turn auto-emails back on for saved searches.
Auto-emails that carried over seamlessly will include the prefix “(importedAE).”
A small number of searches may not convert entirely and will have an asterisk (*) in the search name. These searches will need your attention.
To enable auto emails, go to the “My Matrix” tab, and click on “Auto Emails”. The system indicates disabled auto emails with a red circle.
Click on the auto-email subject name or the drop-down arrow, and then select “Settings”. Scroll down to the “Settings” section and click “Enabled.” Then click “Save.”
These do not transfer over into Matrix X. If you used them in your old system, you will need to set them up again.

You’ll need to edit your personal profile information in your new system, including your email signature, header & footer, portal profile, and CMA Cover Sheet. Edit the appearance of your signatures and other personal info.
In the top right corner, click on your name and then “Settings.” Click on “My Information.” The system has reset all information to your default profile information on file with your local Association.
