I have a 3 bedroom single family home. I originally was renting by the room. The tenants have moved-out and I will be renting it now as a single-unit.
The problem is: I do not see a way to mark my additional (unneeded) unit as “out of service.” I can mark the property itself as “out of service”, but not the individual unit.
I have spoken with tech support and they advised that I delete the extra unit, but deleting the unit, will permanently delete all associated data.
Because of this limitation, my options are to do 1 of the following:
- Delete the unit, which subsequently permanently and deletes all the associated data
- Keep the unit, which subsequently skews occupancy reports.
I wish there was a way to label a unit with a status which excludes that unit from occupancy numbers, and allows it to be available to use in the future if needed, along with retaining all associated historical data.
A few thoughts on unit status options:
- Archived (hides unit from view, does not count towards occupancy numbers, but is able to be unarchived/restored for future use, and retains all associated historical data)
- Out of Service (unit is still visible in the list, but does not count towards occupancy numbers, and retains all associated historical data)
- Under Renovation/Repair
These statuses could also be beneficial for audits and historical timelines and may even be linked with the projects feature. Showing start/stop dates of projects or renovations and when property was in and out of service, etc. This would be a great reporting feature also.
!!!Deletion should be saved for erroneous entries!!!
