Estate journal

This guide has been reviewed against our global client base and classed as relevant to all regions

When using Block Management - from AgencyCloud 12.165+, a journal is available on the estate record

The estate journal logs all key activity on the estate and its associated units

As seen across AgencyCloud, the majority of journal information is non-editable and therefore provides an audit trail for activity carried out

1. Access journal

From estate record:

  • Click Journal (top middle)

2. Estate journal

  • Expand sections to see more information - double-click entries to open associated records

  • Associated information is shown on the right - use icons to open associated records and/or access contact shortcuts

Sections are only shown when information exists e.g. if an estate has no letters generated for it so far, then the Letters section is not shown

Each section is covered below

  • Service charge invoicing frequency, client account, estate status and financial year start
