Adding tenants to your properties allows you to easily contact your tenant from the app using our handy email and SMS templates (or you can make your own templates!).


To add a tenant, navigate to where you want to add the property. This can either mean adding it to your app contact book (for prospective tenants) or to one of your properties (for current tenants). 

Add a Current Tenant to a Property on Mobile

Step 1: Use the hamburger menu bar at the top left-hand corner of the screen to select the relevant property. Then tap on the ‘Add Tenant’ box on your property dashboard.

Step 2. Fill out their details.

  • Note: You will need to add an email and phone number to their details if you want to set up automated reminders or contact them through the app later.

  • Note: You can also import contacts from your phone's contacts by tapping on the diary icon next to the ‘First Name’ option. You will need to enable permissions for the app to access your contacts.

Step 3. Hit save and this tenant is now connected with the property.

To View and Edit Tenants on Mobile

You can view your tenants' details from the property dashboard or from the tenants' tab in the left-hand menu.

Step 1. Open the menu bar on the left and tap on the “Tenants” tab under “Other”.

Step 2. You can click between Previous, Current, and Prospective (future).

Step 3. Once a tenant has been added, you can edit them in this window or from the property window.

  • Note: You can add future/ prospective tenants here, and link them to your property at a later date.

You can also use the quick action button on the home dashboard to add new/prospective tenants.

  1. Tap on the plus icon.

  2. Select “Add New/ Prospective Tenant”

  3. Enter the tenant details.
