Housters 4.7 Release

I’m excited to announce the release of Housters 4.7! This release has major updates for our property managers, such as a new landlord dashboard, contract terms for each landlord, and an easy calculator of property management fees due. In a follow up release we’ll be working on splitting your accounting / reporting based on which properties you manage and which you own, and whether you’re viewing on behalf of the landlord or for yourself (the property manager.)

Some other notable enhancements are support of adding multiple notes for a property, tenant, or landlord, and the ability to create custom message templates to leverage on the Contact Tenants screen.
