Improvements

Get Negotiators endpoint made available for external use

This improvement went live on 25th January.

To support a range of upcoming partner go-lives, we’ve exposed the Get Negotiators endpoint so that a list of negotiators (names and ids) are accessible. This will eventually support booking appraisals and adding properties.

Management Type column added to the Processed Fee Analysis report

This improvement went live on 22nd January.

The Processed Fee Analysis report (within Reports > Property Management Financials) has had an additional Report Column added to it titled Management Type.

This will enable you to distinguish what the Management Type is for the property/tenancy that's attached to the fee.

Archiving a duplicate property introduced to the add a property page

This improvement went live on 4th January.

When adding a property, you'll now be able to archive duplicate properties.

Where a property is flagged as already existing with that address and it's not currently in an ‘active’ status, you'll now have the option to Archive the existing property. This will allow you to create the new property without needing to navigate away to archive the original.

Full sales history introduced to the add a property page

This improvement went live on 4th January.

When adding a property, you'll now be able to view the full sales history from HM Land Registry within the Property timeline.

This was a highly requested feature as previously we only had selected For Sale data.

Product fixes

Fixed transactions being duplicated in Alto when viewed on the tenant ledger and arrears statement

This product fix went live on 11th January.

We became aware of an issue where transactions were being duplicated when viewed on the tenant ledger and arrears statement.

The underlying data was correct, but displaying duplicates meant that it would be easy to assume tenants owed more than they did.

This has now been fixed.
