Space Control Map Feature: Included
in our June 14th update is a new mapping feature. You can now
create a map of your facility.
Rent tax changes:
Over the past year some states raised their rent tax, while others
lowered them. This has created some confusion for sites in
regards to prepaid customers.
The map will give you a quick overview of your
facility. The color scheme of the map will allow you to see
which spaces are vacant, occupied, past due, overlocked or reserved.
It will also tell you which spaces are company spaces, which
are not rentable and which need maintenance. Along with your
spaces we have added a feature that allows you to add structures on
your facility to the map. You can place your office, gates,
customer parking, dumpsters etc... on the map to help orient
yourselves and your customers.
If you right click on a space it will give you an
overview of that space. It will tell you if it is occupied,
size, space number, price, features and remarks. If the space
is occupied it will tell you if they have a current discount and if
it is vacant it will list the discounts that are available for that
When you select an occupied space
it will take you to the customer account screen. If you select
a vacant space it will allow you to either move-in a customer or take
For the sites that are set to "no login" all
of your users will have access. If you have users and roles
setup everyone will be able to view and use the map, but only the
company/regional manager will be allowed to edit the map feature. The
company/regional manager can allow the site manager and/or clerk to
edit the map.
We have added instructions for setting up your map in
the help menu. Please go to the help menu and select Site
Map/Map Setup to begin. I hope you find this new feature useful
in managing your facility.
If you have questions about where to begin with
setting up your Map please contact our support department at
877-591-0455 or email@example.com.
Over the past year a number of
states have lower or raised their rent tax on units. If your
state is planning on doing this in the future please feel free to
contact our support department to get the best process for
implementing this change. They can be reached at 877-591-0455
Please stop by our booth (#200) at the Self Storage Association Fall Conference in Las
Vegas, Nevada September 6-7, 2017. We look forward to showing
you our new suite of programs for the cloud and to discussing
all its new features with you.
