In this article we will go over how to turn Basic Parking "On" for a property, how to add Parking Issue Types, how to add Parking Zones and the Address/Unit and Locations options.
How to Turn on the Basic Parking Program
To turn on the Basic Parking program go to: (1) Properties >> Property Maintenance >> Select a (2) Property >> Click the (3) Parking Program Box >> (4) Save Property Details.
How to Add Parking Issue Types
You will need to add Parking Issue Types the same way you add Security and Maintenance Issue types.
How to Add a Parking Zone
To add a Parking Zone open the Property under the Property Maintenance section and click Parking Setup. You will see an Alert Message that says "No Parking Rules were found. Please add Parking Rules to Continue."
Click "OK" then >> Add Parking Zone
Note: All other options on this screen are associated with the Advanced Parking Module option. For Basic Parking you'll only need to Add New Parking Zone.
Depending on the property, there may be only one Parking Zone or multiple Parking Zones.
Examples of a Parking Zones Name are; General Parking, Resident Parking, Visitor Parking, Open Parking, Reserved Parking, Garage Parking, Covered Parking...
Adding Additional Addresses/Units (Optional)
Silvertrac allows you to track Address, Unit, and Resident history for Parking violations. To utilize this feature you'll need to setup Addresses and Units in the system.
Adding Additional Locations (Optional)
Locations provide an additional detail in your reports as to where an issue occurred on a specific Property at a particular Address.
Location examples are: West Parking Lot, East Parking Lot, Front Entrance, Fire Lane, Handicap Parking, Dumpster Area, Loading Dock, etc.
