By default, when customers rent or reserve online, the move-in date is set to today only. This is advantageous for multiple reasons:
Customers don't take up a unit that someone else can lease.
Reservations don't "leave you hanging" and never show up, causing you to miss out on a sale.
That said, there are great reasons to allow future move-ins.
If you have a lot of units to rent, flexibility will help conversions.
If your facility is in a "destination" location, your customers might be planning ahead of time!
How to Enable Future Move-ins in SiteLink
Open SiteLink Web Edition
Go to Setup
Go to Site Setup
Go to Program Defaults
Go to the "Move In" tab
Select the "Require the tenant to be moved in on todays' or future dates" option
Once that's done, let us know how many days in advance you'd like to allow customers to move in.
While we can let customers pick any date in the future, we recommend:
7 days in advance
14 days in advance
30 days in advance (in extreme situations)
