The following updates were made in the 3.14.1 Release to enhance the user experience:

Now, agents can easily add team members, such as business partners, co-listing agents, team leads, or agency administrators when submitting offers or uploading listings.
Add your Team to your Listings

Add your Team to your Offers

2. Updates to Counteroffers
We've updated our process for counteroffers, so you can easily negotiate in Openn. Now, once a listing agent has countered an offer, you can easily accept, reject, or counter the offer as a buyer agent or re-counter the offer again as the listing agent.

The following enhancements were made in the 3.14.1 release:
1. Updates to Transparency Settings
We've made minor updates to the transparency settings to ensure all changes made by the listing agent are saved and reflected properly on the Property Details page.
2. Listing Agent Notes for Seller(s)
Now, listing agents can leave notes for sellers on a particular offer within the Offer Details page.
3. Updates to Offer Details Page
When you open the Offer Details page, you will now see the buyer agent's agency name beneath the buyer's name.
4. Updates to Listing Agent/Co-Listing Agent Contact Buttons
Buyers can no longer see the listing agent's contact information on the Property Details page or on property cards unless the listing agent is also representing the buyer. This change is to ensure buyers are speaking directly with their own representation/agent.
5. Segmentation Updates
We made updates to our segmentation feature to ensure only properties within an agent's respective MLS appear when searching for properties.
6. Guest Offer Updates
We've made a few updates to our guest offer submission process to align with our existing offer submission process for buyer agents by making sure the following fields populate when submitting a guest offer:
- buyer agent information
- buyer information
- financing details
- offer expiration textbox
- settlement information
- deposit information
- a buyer agent notes section
7. New Offers Tab for Buyers
We've added an Offers tab on the Property Details page for buyers, so buyers can see their own offer. Also, now buyers can view the terms of their own offer by selecting View Terms in the top right corner of the Property Details page.
8. Updates to the Offer Submission Process
Now, when a listing agent uploads an offer on behalf of a buyer or a buyer agent that is not registered in Openn, the offer will automatically 'progress' into the negotiation, since the listing agent has already reviewed the offer.
