If you have a logo or style guide that requires certain colours for your flyers or window cards, you can create elements with custom colours to closely match your specifications.
In this example we'll add a flyer banner background and match the custom colour to a supplied logo.
Step 1. Microsoft Paint
Locate your example logo or graphic and right click, open with > Paint. Tip: Use Ctrl+PrtScn to snapshot your screen if you want to copy a sample from a google image search and then paste that into MS Paint.
In Tools select the dropper and then click on the area you wish to colour match. The colour will appear in the Colour 1 panel. Click Edit colours
In Edit colours, make a note of the RGB codes for your custom colour. These codes will be used to colour match the element in SalesPartner.
Editing an element in SalesPartner
Bring up your custom report in edit mode and double click into the object you wish to colour match. Note you can create a new object using the tools in the left hand menu. Open the Color menu and in Define Custom Colours enter your RGB (Red, Green, Blue) codes you obtained from Paint.
Click Add to Custom Colours and then select your new custom colour and click OK. Repeat this step for both shape Color menus to ensure that the border as well as the fill use the same custom colour.

Follow these steps to find and import expiring foreign listings into SalesPartner from Trade Me Property.
Open SalesPartner, More, Import Data, Trade Me, Multiple Listings.
Open the Suburb ID tab and click on the Trade Me icon to lookup your suburb.

Results are displayed newest first so scroll to the bottom of the list to find old / potentially expiring listings. Select listings using left-click and the Ctrl key, or hold Shift and tap the up/down cursor arrow.
Click Download Selected to continue.
When the download has completed click Yes to Show these listings in the Gallery.
Note: In Gallery, use the column tools menu to enable the Expiry Date column. Drag and drop column headers to shuffle the order. Click on the column headers to adjust the sort order for Expiry Date / Listed Date.
The listing expiry date is recorded in the Listing tab in Listing Entry. This is a suggested date only, automatically calculated by adding 90 days onto the property's listed date.
Click into the envelope to merge a template letter to the owner of a foreign listing.
The template is designed to fit a window DL envelope. You can print and deliver or post the letter.
Tip: Merge multiple vendor letters at once via the Gallery. Click All and open the envelope to access the letter templates. You can edit and save personalised merged letters on the fly.
A number of standard report templates in SalesPartner can merge your website address into your flyer contact details and / or branding. To enter, edit or modify your website address open SalesPartner, More, System File and open the Report Clauses tab. There you can change the website address in the field labeled Website. Enter the website title only, with 'www' as the prefix. Do not include http:// or https://.
Then restart SalesPartner to apply this change.
