New Beta Test program
Self-Serve Beta Testing
We are always listening for feedback from our customers and users. That’s why we are excited to announce our new self-serve beta program.
Now, with the beta test page in Buildium, you will have the ability to view and opt-in to available new features that are currently in beta testing. You’ll be able to turn these features on in your account, test them, and then provide any feedback you might have.
Bill approvals & Settings (Beta)
This new feature allows you to configure rules that prevent bills from being paid without an approval being recorded. Rules can be set at a global level to handle bills across your entire account or can be set at the property level.
Now when a prepayment reverses, we will automatically delete the prepayment charge so that the you do not have to manually delete it. This will also prevent an inflated balance due from showing on the resident.
Mobile app updates
At the beginning of this year, we released our new violations functionality that allowed you to easily log, track, update and edit violations in Buildium. Now we’re making it even easier to log and track violations by bringing it to the mobile app!
iPad friendly Buildium app
We’re excited to announce the release of the iPad-friendly version of the current iOS manager app for mobile devices. With the iPad friendly version, the manager app will provide a more user-friendly experience with all the same great functionality to help you manage your business on the go.

We've redesigned the way you create leases and added an easy way to attach documents. Lease enhancements are starting to roll out to existing customers in the coming weeks, starting 12/11.
