Unit Settings

Units Settings give you control over several different functions pertaining to units at your facility, including creating and editing units and unit groups in your facility, determining your walk through order, and building your facility map.

This guide will provide insight into:

To access unit settings:

  • Click the settings tab in the lower left of your screen.
  • Under the unit section, select units. Your unit settings will load.

 

To navigate within unit settings:

Use the tabs in the top right to switch between views of your units. Your units do not change across tabs. They're simply displayed in different formats to make completing unit tasks easier.

    • The facility map tab allows you to choose the visual location of a unit in relation to your property using the map builder.
    • The groups tab lists all units in groups with identical size, price and amenities.
    • The individual tab lists all units individually by unit number.
    • The walk thru tab lists all units in a custom order that you define.
