With the activity feed, you get a real-time view of all the activity going on in your account with live updates about tasks, work orders, and communications all in a single place so you can stay organized, improve collaboration across your team, and take action on-the-go. The activity feed is available to you on both desktop and the Buildium mobile app. Activity highlights include: 

  • New incoming tasks
  • New tasks assigned to you 
  • Updates to a task you’re assigned to
  • Someone other than the assignee sets the task as “closed”
  • New work orders created
  • Work orders assigned to you
  • Update to work orders
  • New text messages received from a Resident

Activity Feed on the Desktop

You can view the latest list of prioritized activities through the top menu from any page in your account. Selecting the Activity Feed icon will give you a dropdown list of past and current activity. Select any item in your feed will take you directly to the relevant page, making it easy for you to take action quickly.

How to view new activities 

If you have push notifications turned on, you will receive a notification on your phone as each new activity occurs ex: when you receive a new message from a resident. 


To view all new and past activities, simply open the mobile app and your new view will be the activity feed. If there are new activities since the last time you opened the app, there will be a button at the top of the feed “new activities”. Tap that button to refresh the feed and all new activities will load. 


You can scroll through the activity feed to see all past activities.

How to use the activity feed 

From the activity feed, you can tap into each activity and be taken directly to that relevant screen. For example, if you see a new task has been created, tapping on that activity will take you right to the task itself where you can view details or make updates. Or tapping on a new message activity will take you right to that message chain with the resident. 

You can also click on a push notification for an activity which will then open the app and take you directly to that particular task, work order, or message. 

Activity Feed Settings

You can snooze push notifications with the Do Not Disturb feature at the top of the screen represented by a Bell. Or you can schedule specific times to snooze notifications from the settings menu.


To change the types of notifications you get in the activity feed, navigate to “more” in the bottom toolbar, then settings >> notifications.

From here you can toggle on/off for: 


  • Incoming requests
  • Updates and assignments 

Work orders

  • New work orders
