How do I change the period? (Change Current Period)

 Changing the Period

a.  Chose Run Analysis-reflects any unresolved resident activity items, resident transactions or account variances

b.  Items included in the Analysis are defined by the management company

c.  Click the Exclamation Point to see items needing to be resolved.

The yellow exclamation point are Warnings. They do not have to be resolved, but ResMan recommends that you do clear up these messages.

d.  If you have Red X's, you are required to clear the messages.

BEST PRACTICE: Perform the Run Analysis process early in the month so that you can be resolving any issues early! You can run it as many times a needed.
