How do I publish a post on the Property Message Board?
Property Message Board is a place where landlords/property managers and tenants can all communicate and share files.The message board is restricted to connected tenants only who are moved in to the property. In order to access the message board, the tenants should have a TenantCloud account, should be connected with landlord/ property manager and have an active shared lease.
Landlord/Property Manager can list job postings, items for sale (or wanted for purchase), lost or found items, notices and announcements. Tenants will be able to leave a comment if it's allowed by the landlord.
Property Message Board is available with Growth and Business plans.

Once the post is added, your tenants are able to leave their comments regarding the particular post. You can adjust whether your tenants are allowed to leave comments due to each post individually. New comments are displayed first under "Write a response" field.
Landlord/property manager can edit or delete their own posts as well as sub- admin's posts by selecting a needed option from the dots menu:
If sub-admins are added, they can also manage the Property Message Board if the main admin has set access permissions for that. If the main admin allows sub-admin to respond both from the Communication center then sub-admin can publish posts or leave comments under their own name or under the landlord's name.
Sub-admin can remove posts if the main admin sets permission for that. All sub-admin activities can be checked by clicking on the timeline icon next to their name.
