Viewing accounts of past tenants

Sue_CSue_C NADaily Operations Certified, Advanced Operations Certified, Administrator Certified ✭✭✭✭✭
Did you know? You can view the accounts of all your past tenants–even if you've deleted the units they have rented! The question came in recently via email:

"We recently deleted units, and now we realized we cannot access the previous tenants accounts who were in those units before. Is there a way to access these accounts even though the units were deleted? Please advise."

The good news is, this is easy to do. If you go to Adjustments > Moved Out Accounts, you can view all your past tenants. This is independent of whether or not the unit has been deleted.

    You can also apply payments on/to old accounts if they have a balance due (such as a move out leaving a balance). We also pull up vacated accounts if they come buy merchandise just to keep track of sales, rather than using the walk-in POS.

    Another method we use to see moved out accounts is from the main Operations-payments screen. Click on the "show only current tenants" checkbox and you can search both current and past tenants with moved out tenants showing in orange text.

    Totally great tip there! I learn something new today! Thank you so much Sue_Community & teamcapitola

    Awesome tip. So is there a shortcut to find tenants who would be 'undesirable' to rent to again, say, had balance owed or was auctioned?

    The only way we can check for sure would be to search past tenants for them. Otherwise, if there was a note left in the tenant info section, it will show up when you search them during the move in process. I also put "DO NOT RENT" as the Company name so that it will pop up during either search.

    if you are like me and cannot view past tenants in that screen that @ESS mentioned I always also put it in the top of their notes before I move them out DO NOT RENT AGAIN. I can only see past due tenants balance which is clue #1 not to rent to them but if people pay their balance owed we allow them to come back. If they were a problem tenant that is the only way I would know through notes. I have no idea why my access to past tenants has been restricted but it is super annoying to not be able to see that screen

    Sitelink doesn't have a "undesirable" checkbox, so you have to come up with a method or procedure to catch the bad apples.

    Our facility also has a separate simple Excel sheet on our desktop...as soon as we get a name we do a quick "Ctrl + F " to search for names.. Over 11 years we have quite the list of "do not rent" or "flagged" names and this makes it easy to do a "Oh Hello Mr. X , how will you be paying that $300 owed on your last unit?"

    We share names along with details between facilities too... "Hello Mr.Y, I saw that you were evicted from (facility x) for sleeping in your unit"
