Vendors are an important part of property management. They handle maintenance and contract work for your properties, get attached to Expenses and Bills, and if you want to be able to attach them to Work Orders and Tenant Requests, you’ll need to create them in DoorLoop.
This article will give you an overview of all the things you can do with Vendors in DoorLoop.
If you have many vendors to add as you start using DoorLoop, these steps will walk you through how to create your list of vendors.
If you have so many vendors you need ways to categorize them for searching purposes, you can also create Vendor Categories.
Create and pay bills, expenses
Create Management Fees
If you charge management fees to manage your properties, DoorLoop can calculate the fees automatically and create bills on your behalf.
You can either configure the same management fee settings for all of your properties, or a property can have unique fee settings.
Create Work Orders
In DoorLoop, a Work Order is a task or job for a customer, which can be scheduled and assigned to a Vendor. For example, you might create a Work Order for something reported through a Tenant Request, or you might just create them internally within your property management company.
There are multiple places you can create Work Orders in DoorLoop. Properties, Units, Leases, Tenants, Owners, Prospects, and Vendors in DoorLoop all have their own Tasks tab where you can create and view Work Orders.
