Tenant Dashboard

When a tenant logs into PropertyFile, they land on their Dashboard. If they have been a tenant in more than one property with you, they can click Change Property to select which property they want to view the tenancy details for. On the main Dashboard, they can see a summary of their tenancy and a timeline of key dates and events. They can also click through the different tabs to see each section of their portal.

My Tenancy tab

The My Tenancy tab provides an overview of the tenancy including the period it runs for, amount of time remaining, remaining amount and deposit details. It's also where the tenant can view any documents you've shared with them and see their account balance and a list of transactions.

Maintenance tab

The Maintenance tab provides a list of both open and historic maintenance issues reported for the tenancy. The tenant can also report maintenance issues by clicking on Report an Issue.

Inviting your tenants to PropertyFile

You can resend PropertyFile invites, or invite your tenants to get started with PropertyFile either individually from their contact record in Alto or in bulk via the relevant contact Groups.

The process for doing this is exactly the same as it would be for your applicants, landlords and vendors.
