When setting up your ButterflyMX video intercom, you will need to add your tenants and units in the Property Management Dashboard (PMS) right away. Some buildings may opt to sync with their Property Management System via our PMS integrations, which automatically transfers tenant data into the ButterflyMX Property Management Dashboard. Alternatively, you can do a bulk tenant import.
If you do not use a PMS or have not yet synced yours, you will have to PMS integrations info and units as they move in and out of your property. You can easily add, remove, or update data at any time.
In this post, we will walk you through:
Adding Units or Floors into the ButterflyMX System
- Log in to the Property Management Dashboard
- Click ‘Units’ from the left-hand menu
- Click the ‘+ new unit’ button
- Enter the unit and floor information
Step 1: Log in to the Property Management Dashboard
Log in to your Property Management Dashboard on a computer.
Step 2: Click ‘Units’ from the left-hand menu
Navigate to the menu on the left-hand side of the page and click ‘Units’. This section is a layout of your building, so you will see how many floors your building has, and which unit numbers are associated with those floors.
Step 3: Click the ‘+ new unit’ Button
To add a new floor or unit, click on the ‘+ new unit’ button at the top of the page.
Step 4: Enter the unit and floor number information
In the field titled ‘ Label’, enter the Unit Number. And the field titled ‘Floor number’, enter the Floor Number.
Once you have entered the unit and floor number, click ‘Save.’
Adding Units to Existing Floors
Step 1: Click the ‘+ Unit’ button under the floor number
To add a unit number to an existing floor, click on the ‘+ unit’ button under the floor number.
Step 2: Add the unit number
In the label box, enter the unit number
Note: It’s important to check the unit section when adding tenants manually, as you’ll need to make sure that the unit number is listed in the unit section before you add that tenant manually.
Once you have entered the unit number, click ‘Save.’
You have successfully added units and floors to the ButterflyMX admin system.
