March Technical News and information from HomeLink

About our Local  AU NZ web site

Just   to clear up some confusion.   HomeLink  has a Local web site for each country to provide quick Help & Information when you need it. It is the base for Local support & Requests with a link to the main site for Searching. The Main site is for Searching, messaging and completing your Exchange Agreements.  If you wish to have a request published please let me know




Can I remind you to reply.

A touchy subject but needs addressing.  We are often told about non replies.  I know we are all busy and writing an email can be tiresome but if you receive an ‘Offer’ you have no interest in the sender is obviously waiting for a reply.  There is provision for a single click reply by way of automated email.

How to manage Templates & Wish list 

(The quick & easy way to send multiple messages)

  • Click the envelope at Login which takes you to messaging
  • Click ‘Manage template’ where you can write  and save your template
  • Go to your search page to prepare your list of members.    Find a Member that interests you and click ‘View’ then click the Heart to add to your wish list.  Repeat until you have your list of up to 50 per day
  • Go back to your messaging and click ‘Wish list’ where all 50 are waiting.  Go to number one and click ‘Contact member’.  Beneath the Members listing click ‘Use template’ see pic below. Please remember to personalise each Message.   If not personalised they tend to be ignored.

You will notice provision for making notes on each item on the wish list

Deleting a conversation

New feature in your Messaging.  If you permanently delete a conversation (by emptying your Trash folder) and receive another message from the same member, the whole conversation will be recovered and will appear in your ‘My Conversations’ folder.


The previous newsletter can be found on the Local web site Home Page

John & I have just returned from 2 weeks in Wellington while Home Exchangers from France were in our house.  We paid our first visit to Government House and were very impressed as we had not seen it since its magnificent renovation.  If you are visiting Wellington   We can thoroughly recommend it.  It’s a 2 hour conducted tour and is FREE
