We work hard to make sure our features are constantly improving to make running your business easier and more efficient. This page includes the latest new features, product improvements, and major bug fixes for the month of January:

Default actions to resolve for violation types

We previously released default descriptions for violation types in an effort to better streamline the process for recording violations. Now, to continue that effort, we’ve added a field for default actions to resolve for violations types. This should save you and your staff time by not having to type the same action to resolve over and over again per violation type and category.

Messages page updates 

We’ve made some improvements to the messages page in Buildium to make this page easier to use.


What’s changing? 

  • The “Messages” button is now more prominent at the top of the page 
  • Action buttons will also be displayed more prominently at the top of the page
  • We’re adding a property filter so you can easily find messages for specific properties
  • We’ve added a more clear way to filter for “followed” and “unfollowed” messages

Performance improvements

In order to improve performance within the Buildium platform and make future improvements possible, we are working on moving a number of pages to a more modern code base. 

What does that mean? 

In short, we are making things faster and easier to use!

You may notice some small changes in layout as part of this project starting with the following pages this month: 

  • Bills page
  • Recurring Bills and Recurring Checks 
  • Account and billing page 


Beta test updates:

We are continuing to beta test our new announcements features. By opting into this beta, you can:


  • Get important information out to residents more quickly than ever before
  • Write a message once and send it three different ways (text, email, and the resident site)

NEW: This month we've added all beta announcements to the communications timeline so you can easily keep track of all communication history when viewing a timeline for a resident.
