Over the past several weeks RealTracs’ users have undoubtedly noticed several changes to the parking fields in Listing Add/Edit. This is related to our continued efforts of ensuring Add/Edit completely matches the RESO Data Dictionary (more information).
As part of the evolution toward a completely RESO compliant Add/Edit, changes have been made to the Driveway field in Add/Edit, listing searches, and reports.
The Driveway field and some of its descriptors are now selections in the Open Parking Features field in Add/Edit. Open Parking — or uncovered parking — is a designation often associated with cities where identifying all options is important, e.g., alley parking, on-street parking, and a driveway. As part of this update, there are new options now available to choose from, denoted below by an asterisk (*). When adding a listing, you can make up to three Open Parking selections.

|Circular Driveway*||Parking Lot||Unpaved|
For current listings with the Driveway features found in the list below, the new Open Parking feature will replace each with a new description. Please note, these changes will be automatic – there is no action you need to take for your listings. Additionally, you will be able to update Open Parking Features selections as needed.
