What's the difference between a unit and property?

When we say unit here in our Help section we use it interchangeably with property. They both represent in Inspections the units or properties you inspect as a Property Manager at your community, or manage on behalf of your landlord as part of your portfolio. In our app a property is mostly the same except it has a few extra fields such as a key number.


Our Sales and Customer Success teams will help your team get setup with the correct type of asset when you sign up for your Inspections account.
