This Dashboard is interactive and designed to make your life quicker but having information at your fingertips, see it, manage it and then forget it
The Dashboard is made up of the icons along the top,
- Document Flow
- Email and SMS Inbox
- Rent Alerts - This will show who was due to pay rent up to yesterday's date and has not paid. This will only work for those tenants who have an expected date in the Payment Details area. It will take you to a custom view so you can send an SMS to let the tenant know their payment has been missed.
- A selection of Graphs to give you up to date live time data
Click on the part of the graph you want to find out more about, and it will take you a custom view, all set out with the information you need. You can then click on the + pick up your letter or SMS and send. Done in just a few mins.
Why wasn't the sending of SMS or Email set to go automatically rather than have to manually do the SMS or Email? We did think about automatic sending, but we have had a lot of feedback around other software that does it. You lose all control, so an SMS might be sent to a tenant who had just called you to explain why they missed, then they receive a text from you saying they owe rent! Not a good look. This way you can untick them before you click on Send.
There are 8 graphs, Each graph is then broken down into areas. i.e Rent Arrears 0 - 6 days, 7 to 14 and so on. Click on 0 -6 days and you will only see those tenants in arrears by those days.
Click on the link beside each one below to see the breakdown of how they are reported and the fields used to make the custom Views
- Rent Arrears
- Rent Increases
- Fixed Term Leases Ending
- Work Orders
- Properties Advertised
- Rent Reviews
Clicking into each Segment will take you to a custom view designed to show you the breakdown of the information, once there you can use Custom Views as normal, use the normal mail merge features to email or SMS letters, export to Excel, or print to PDF.
