How long is this accelerated update function supposed to have been included? It has been months since I tested it, so I could be mistaken. But it did take days if not weeks to come through in the past. This might just be our office, or it might be that it has improved in the later versions since I last checked it out.

I don't know exactly, but it has been well over a year in the US and Canada. I think it has even been more than 2 years.

But it's certainly conceivable that this process varies in different administration offices, so there could be delays outside US/Canada. You'd have to do some experimentation, or contact your administration office to discover how it works in your area.

At least two. But I have gotten the impression from other posts, especially in Europe, that the area office has some function in intercepting MLS transmissions and processing them, so the times may be different.

In the US and Canada, events used to be processed once a day around midnight. At some point several years ago, they switched to processing transactions every 8 hours, then every 4, and then every hour.

I think some transactions are done almost immediately now. I know that almost any membership record we request on Sunday is available by activity night, and any record requested during the week is available to the unit by Sunday morning.

So, if this is not happening in Australia, there really is something else going on in the loop, and my nickel would point toward the area office.
