There are two primary features property managers once Parkade launches at their buildings: Building-owned parking and the Monitor tab.
Does your building have communal parking, or lease spots to residents for a fee? It's easy to manage reservations in those spots through Parkade, and limit who can reserve them to just your residents and staff. If you do this,
To use this feature, just go to the Manage tab. If you have a lot of spots, we can import them in bulk. Want to do that, or missing the Manage tab? Just drop us a note.
Monitoring Parkade activity
Once Parkade is up and running, property managers are set up with "admin access," and with that, you'll be able to monitor everything happening in Parkade at your building. Here's the various things you'll monitor:
Moderating lot "members"
Parkade allows you to limit access to reserving parking to a limited set of people. Most buildings limit access to just tenants and staff, while some buildings add trusted guests or people who work on-site, like at a mixed-use building. Still others allow anyone to park on site and use Parkade.
Whatever the case, you can go to Manage → Members to view everyone who has permission to park in your parking lot. At the top you'll see "pending members", who are people waiting for your permission to start using Parkade. Below, you'll see active members. You can tap on their names to view more info and see their contact info, or remove their access to Parkade.
Want to see which parking spots are at your building, and who has permission to park in a specific spot? Just tap on Monitor → Spots and browse the list of spots.
At buildings using Parkade to lease all spots to tenants, you should see all parking spots listed. At buildings that only use Parkade to enable tenants to share spots, you'll likely only see some parking spots listed. That's intentional, as Parkade only gets spots info from the people who choose to sign up and add their parking spot.
Tap on a spot, and we'll show you what people (and which vehicles) should currently have access to that spot. We'll also show you past and upcoming rentals and vehicles as well.
Need to look up a particular vehicle? That's no problem! Just tap on the Vehicles tab in the Monitor section, and you'll see a list of all vehicles that have ever been granted access to park at your property through Parkade.
You can browse the list or use the search function. If you tap on a vehicle, we'll show some more details about the vehicle, like who the owner is and what reservations it's been associated with. You'll also be able to call, text or email the vehicle owner, right from the app.
Want to know what reservations have been made with Parkade, or spots assigned with Parkade? Just flip over to Rentals tab, and you'll see a list of all reservations. You can search the list as well, by name of the renter.
