Happy Friday, Now-Renters!
We’d like to start this week’s release notes with a pop quiz. As an individual, how many times and in how many places does some piece of personal information appear on the world wide web? I bet that it’s more than you think. And that isn’t an entirely bad thing. Some folks have even taken time to display their info so that friends and family can find them. Whether you chose to share your info or it somehow appeared online without your knowledge, there are always risks associated with having it out there. Check out our blog post that discusses some of those risks here.
So why all this privacy talk? I’m glad you asked. In this ever-changing rental landscape, NowRenting wants to give those who rent out property choices and solutions to make life easier. In this case, that solution is NowRenting Privacy, and it’s available now to existing Leads customers on the NowRenting Platform.
NowRenting Privacy is an optional service that allows customers to separate their rental business from their personal business. Customers receive a local phone number and a unique email that drive all of their text and voice messages into their messages dashboard. You can even chat with prospective tenants in real time, and never share a lick of your personal info. This is innovation only available on NowRenting and as a privacy user.
For more detailed info on Privacy and other NowRenting services, check out our all-new help section and knowledge base here.
In addition to those major upgrades and the standard bug fixes and upgrades throughout, the engineering team made a major under the hood upgrade to the notifications feature, and now users can edit their tenants’ info in the Lease Summary page. We made improvements to multi-browser support and, finally, now ACH charges on bank statements will show the lease address.
That is all for this week. Have a great weekend and Happy Renting!
