Rentable vs Un-Rentable units

GinaValGinaVal TXRegistered User, Daily Operations Certified
I have 4 units in our Climate controlled buildings that only house our HVAC units. Should these units be counted towards our rentable space in SiteLink, or should I move them out and mark them as un-rentable? Thoughts? In addtion, SL has a limitation of 500 units we can use. If I can mark the HVAC units as un-rentable, will this open up more spaces I can assign a unit number to?

    Marking them us unrentable will not open up more spaces to my knowledge. You would have to delete them as units from the system and add shapes labeled as HVAC on the map to put in their place. Then those 4 units would not infringe on your total unit count.

    If you mark them as unrentable, don't they still show up in sq footage?

    I am going to go into the demo environment and try both. Will let you know what the outcome is.

    I agree with Skinman. Also, if those units are not marked as HVAC, they will skew your occupancy rate.

    I have finally had an opportunity top figure this out. Marking it as un-rentable does not take it from your unit count and still counts toward your sq. footage and occ. rate. You have to take them completely out of the system.
    Only issue is I use these units to put my access codes on for Fire, lawn, pest, etc vendors as well as mine and the and the owners access numbers.

    Don't you have a regular shop unit as well? Or perhaps box storage? I put all of our codes like that under our shop unit. I thought that was the case, glad you confirmed it.

    Can you not just enter those codes into your gate software directly? I usually put my codes and any other special codes in the gate software itself.

    You can...and we did for sometime...but decided it was a better idea to have all codes running through sitelink

    I have never tried the code on the gate software. Not as easy to query though.
    All our items are stored in the office garage or storage rooms. Looks like i have more research on what will be the best for our facility. Thanks for the feedback.

    Do you have any company units or employee units in the sitelink software? You can go to access tab and add additional codes for that one unit

    Depends if you want them included in your square footage. The investor likes that. Managers do not! I have about 7 units I cannot rent. They company wont allow me to take them out. Leaves my rentable square footage not a true number. Also takes away the total number of units not rented higher then it should be.

    We don't really have a company unit because we have a garage and storage in the office. Just the HVAC units. I am thinking of removing the HVAC units(50 sq ft) and creating more parking spaces at least 200 sq ft and $100-200 extra every month.

    On my map the office is yellow and labeled Office1.  I have no idea how I did it!  I would like to do that with some of our company used spaces.

    You can add "shapes' and make them whatever size/label/color you need to @JulieA
