Do you need Management Groups?

posted: May 29, 2023

Do you have multiple Properties with the same answers across Pollution and Waste (7), Social Equity (11), Continuing Education (12), and Business Management (13)? Create a Management Group to answer them all at once.

Watch the tutorial to learn how the Management Group function works, and how to create and use them to answer these linked questions.

Please note that if edits to linked questions are made through a Property application and the Property is part of a Management Group, the changes will be reflected in each individual Property that makes up the Management Group.
