The AWARDS Rent & Utilities feature is an optional database enhancement that provides users with a place to record rent and utility transactions, generate a pending payables list, view rent balances, and create payment and stipend worksheets. Rent & Utilities, which is located in the Operations module, also allows an agency to view reports of Maintenance Work Orders along with rent transactions.
Because the Rent & Utilities functionality is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. To request that it be made available in your database, please contact your Foothold Customer Success & Advocacy team representative for more guidance on whether or not this functionality is right for your agency.
In databases in which the Rent & Utilities feature is turned on, it is available to all AWARDS users with employee logins (with the exception of those whose access is limited by the "Restrict to Aggregate Data View" permission).
The Rent & Utilities functionality is comprised of the following features. Click a link below to access the Online Help pages for the corresponding feature.
