Tenants are part of a lease, so you add tenants by creating a new lease.
To create a lease you must have a building with floorplans and units in it.
To add a Lease you need to do the following:
1) Choose Tenants and Leases from the left navigation
2) Choose Leases
3) You will have two options here: [+ New Lease] or [+ Current Lease]
Current Lease is used for adding leases for tenants that already live in the building. Typically used when setting up the system for the first time or when a new property is purchased with existing tenants and leases. Please note: In order to enter a current lease, unit status must be pending.
New Lease is the creation of a new tenant moving in for the first time. Typically a today or a future date. To create a New Lease you need to make sure the unit you want to use is set to "available". Go to the unit information and press the black "Actions" button at the right top corner, then select "Scope". Choose "Available". Once the unit is set to Available you can create a New Lease for it.
Once the Lease has been created, press SAVE. The ACTION button is now highlighted. To start this lease press ACTIONS --> ACTIVATE and the billing system will start. Please note: Please setup your initial Property Vista Accounting system before activating a lease.
