This page is about the menu SUB ACCOUNTS

Each account can have sub accounts with a unique username and password. Sub accounts can be given restricted or full access to other accounts or individual properties. A sub account can also contain it's own properties.

Only one person at a time can log in to any account or sub account.

Sub Accounts

A property is always owned by one account or sub account but it can be set up to be accessed from other accounts. It inherits it's account level settings from this owner account. Therefore a property should be owned by the account which manages the property and whose Email address is used to send out confirmation messages and other system Emails.

  • If a property is managed mainly in the master account and the sub account just needs access to see certain information or to perform certain tasks it should be owned by the master account. In this case sub accounts are given access to the property.
  • If a property is managed mainly by the sub account and the master accounts just needs access it should be owned by the sub account. In this case the master account is given access to the property.
