Pre-Authorize or Block a Visitor
Visitors can be pre-authorized or blocked from a property. All visitor's can have a permission type for the property. The permission type can have an expiration date or be assigned until the visitor profile is modified. The permission type dictates whether a contact is allowed on the property or not. To pre-authorize or block a visitor follow the steps below.
- From the "Visitors" tab click on the [+ Pre-Authorize Visitor] button.
- Complete the information fields about the visitor and select the host for the visitor's contact. This field will pull from the list of existing residents.
- Select the permission type from the drop-down (options below), select the expiration of the permission type and enter any notes about the visit or visitor.
- Click on the [ADD PERMISSION] button.
Block Access to Visitor: The visitor has been banned from the property. This is commonly used for visitors that have been a threat to the tenant or property, and unwanted solicitors.
Call host For Authorization: The visitor is authorized to access the property, but the host should be contacted to confirm the visitor's access before they are allowed on the property. This is commonly used for contractors or maintenance workers that periodically visit the property.
Access Granted: This is a known, and likely frequent visitor, that has the host's permission to access the property as needed. This permission type is common for relatives of tenants or regularly scheduled tenant services such as a dog walker or cleaning service.
