Facilities Directory: Not Just for Facilities Anymore

Post Date:02/26/2016

If you’re a Vision customer, you’ve got access to a robust suite of CMS features that can supercharge your efforts to educate and engage residents. The Facilities Directory is one of our most popular components and allows you to list and display the location of facilities in your community.

Website visitors are able to search the directory by type (such as parks, recreation centers, and schools) amenities (such as swimming pool, meeting rooms, and kitchen), and capacity. Over time we’ve found that our customers have found some unique ways to leverage this flexible tool to do a whole lot more – without any additional coding or customized programming.
