Progressing a tenancy

Alto can help you easily manage the progression of a tenancy application, through the defined tasks that are to be followed, until such time as the tenant has moved in and the tenancy setup has been finalised to make the tenancy active.

To help you, each section below acts as a process walkthrough and links out to the relevant articles.

 Best practice

Whilst it isn't mandatory to complete all of the tasks in order to make a tenancy active, we recommend it as it enables you to check that everything that should have been done, has been done. As each task completed advances the progress meter, everyone can quickly see how far every tenancy application has reached from the progression screen, without having to go into each and every tenancy


The list of progress tasks that you see when setting up a new tenancy may differ from the one that appears in these examples as this list can be customised in System Administration by your appointed Group Administrator
