Staff Logging Packages
Logging resident packages is easy with VTS Activate for Multifamily. Staff can take control of the process using their Staff Tablet.
|Note: Admins do not log packages. This is the workflow your staff will be taking to log packages.|
- Scan Packages
- Mark Packages as Picked Up
- Filtering Package Results
- Marking Packages as Awaiting Pickup
From your property's staff app, select Packages.
Select Scan Packages from the upper right corner.
This will open a camera feature. Focus on the recipient of the package, and take a picture.
|Note: If the photo is blurry, you will need to retake the picture or enter the information on the right-hand side.|
The recipient information will populate after a clear picture is taken. You are also able to update/edit that information.
Select Submit. This will alert the package recipient that they have a package waiting to be picked up and their pickup location.
Mark Packages as Picked Up
Under Packages, you will see the records of packages that have been scanned and are awaiting pickup.
Select the checkboxes next to the packages you would like to mark as picked up. Select Marked as Picked Up. This will send a notification to the recipient that it has been picked up.
This will prompt a signature box.
|Note: Either Property Admin, Staff, or Package Recipient can sign for the package. This is dependent on your property's workflow.|
Filtering Package Results
You can quickly refine the package results to filter by Unit, Resident, Date Range, Pickup Location, or Carrier.
Select the filter button at the top of the screen.
This will open the below filter options, making it easy to find the package you are looking for!
Marking Packages as Awaiting Pickup
If you marked a package Picked Up in error, you are able to change the status to Awaiting Pick Up.
Under Picked Up, you can select the checkbox next to the package you would like to move back to Awaiting Pick Up and select Awaiting Pick Up towards the bottom. This will send a notification to the package recipient that the package was moved back to the Awaiting Pick Up queue.
