Summary Page Alerts and Summaries

Colorful boxes alert you to real-time updates on Vacancies, Leases Expiring Soon, Rent Overdue, and Open Work orders. When items may need your attention, the boxes indicate how many to review and become clickable, bringing you directly to the new data.

System Note: Leases Expire Soon alerts will be displayed on the Summary Page for one month. Then, if the lease isn't updated, it's assumed to be month-to-month and will no longer show on the Summary Page or Lease Expiration Report.
