    It would be great if users can create an account using social logins (oauth) such as Facebook, Twitter, Google etc. Users are more prone to signup using these accounts then creating a new username and password they need to remember.

    We have brought this up in the past but have gotten a lot of push back, so at the moment I would not count on this as happening.

    This enhancement brings up some questions.

    What of existing leads? If a lead is already in the system they may or may not have used the same email address for their social accounts. This would create duplicate leads, one with social and one with a pre existing email address.

    I have seen other providers work around this without any issues. When a lead logins with say facebook, IDX Broker system would then see the email address that Facebook provided. Next it would check to see if a lead already exists for that email address and it can then either ask them for their current password to login and associate the Facebook login with their current account. Also the profile page would need to be updated to allow current leads the ability to login and add/connect or disconnect their social profiles.

    If the email address is not found then the IDX Broker system would simply create them as a new lead. Facebook, and the other login providers provide documentation for this type of issue.

    If it is the same actual lead, but the first account and the Facebook account are different emails, I would argue that this would always be an issue. It would be the same as the lead signing up for a new account with a second email address currently. Adding the ability for account owners to merge leads, and remove the limit (currently 1) to additional email addresses would help owners manage this issue regardless of social logins getting added or not.
