Google Maps Address Lookup

Posted on April 27, 2017
Google maps is great for looking up property addresses. RentHQ already uses Google maps for displaying the location of a property on a map.  However the accuracy of the map is dependent on the accuracy of the address information entered into RentHQ. Now RentHQ will do an automatic google maps address lookup when entering or changing property addresses.  RentHQ will show a list of address lookup matches, and you can choose to select one of those addresses to help populate the rest of the address information. You can choose to ignore the google maps address if a match can not be found, for example if this is a new property address that google maps does not know about. Note - this works better and faster with the Windows 10 app version of RentHQ.  The app version would therefore be better of doing a lot of data entry.

Scan documents directly into RentHQ

Posted on April 19, 2017
You can now use your scanner to scan documents directly into RentHQ and add them as attachments to tenants or owners or properties or property inspections. Note - This only applies to the Windows 10 app version of RentHQ.  The browser version does not have access to your scanner.  This also may not work with older scanners. To scan documents directly into RentHQ...
  1. Go to the Attachments tab on the tenant, owner, property or inspections screens and press the new Scanner button.
  2. Choose your scanner preferences using the selection of dropdown boxes.
  3. Next just press the Scan button.  This will scan the document(s) that are sitting in the scanner.
  4. You will be provided with a Preview link to view the file you have just scanned.
  5. If you are happy with the preview, just Save it.  This will upload the scanned file to RentHQ and save it as an attachment.
