Release Notes for AppWork Apps


Admin Portal: September 22, 2022

This week’s update includes a few usability updates and bugfixes!

Features:

  1. Yardi Integration: Enhanced Yardi integration with AppWork now pulls floor plan names, addresses, and square footage for each unit.
  2. Work Orders: When a work order is closed, if the work order includes “Parts Pending,” the system will mark those parts as “delivered.” As a result, the Parts Pending report will be more accurate.
  3. AutoPay: For clients using AppWork payments, you can now see when a resident has enabled AutoPay.

Bugfixes:

  1. Technicians: When filtering technicians by a property group the correct technicians appear.
  2. Work Orders: When a work order is closed, if the work order included “Parts Pending”, the system will mark those parts as “delivered.” As a result the Parts Pending report will be more accurate.
  3. Purchase Order: You can now use dashes (-) in the search field.
  4. Daily Insights Report: We removed decimal amounts from the saturation % from this report so that the number will be consistent with the work order saturation reports in the reports module.
  5. Make Ready Board: When switching the property on the make ready board, the data showing on the “Archive” tab will persist.
  6. Yardi Integration: When importing units from Yardi, AppWork pulls the correct number of units.
