Generating brochures using Media Maker in Webdadi - this feature is only enabled for customers who previously had it. This feature is not currently offered.

Media Maker allows you to generate a brochure for a property straight from Webdadi, provided you have the marketing version of Webdadi.

 

Firstly you need to install Media Maker:

  • Log into Webdadi, select Property from the left hand menu, and then select Search and search through your properties. Click on one of these properties, right click and choose Media Options, then Media Maker, then Manage Templates.
  • When a popup appears you will have an option to select Install Media Maker. Click on this and follow the instructions to download it, by clicking on Run, and then following the installation steps.

Now you can use Media Maker to generate property letters/brochures:

  • Click on Property again from the left hand menu.
  • Search to find a property and click on it. Right click on the property and select Media Options, then Media Maker, then Generate Template.
  • Select the template <Template_Name> you would like to use. If you've never made one, select Add and refer to the instructions for generating templates (not contained in these instructions).
  • Allow up to 20 seconds for Microsoft Word to load up.
  • Once the document has loaded, click on Media Maker in the top left corner (Office 2003) or look for tab called Add-Ons (Office 2007 onwards).
  • Select Download and Embedded Media. This will automatically populate your letter/brochure with any content including pictures/address details (anything that was included when the template was created) from the individual property that you searched for.
  • Edit text according to company specifications.
  • Click on Media Maker in the top left corner (Office 2003) or look for tab called Add-Ons (Office 2007).

To add the new PDF to your property page (on your live website):

  • Go to Property from the left hand menu in Webdadi.
