Rent Request Management in Real Estate manager
To manage user submitted Rent Requests, in the Admin backend go to Components > Real Estate Manager > Rent Requests. You will see the following screen:
All pending Rent Requests will be shown here. On the top bar, there are two buttons: Accept Request and Decline Request, which are fairly self-explanatory.
Reminders. The user's email address is clickable, so the admin can send reminders to the users easily from here.
Rent Request Flow. If the Rent Request is declined, the user will receive an email saying that the Rent Request was not accepted. Admin must manual send so email – if wish. If the Rent Request is approved, the user will receive an email confirmation stating that the request has been approved. Admin must manual send so email – if wish.
House availability indication in the frontend
In the frontend of the website, the House details will now show that the house has been lent out, so that other visitors of the website know that the house is not available for lending.
In the Status column the apartments which was lent out will have a red cross behind it, indicating that it is not available for lending. Also, the Rent Request button will NOT show when the is lent out.
