When a tenant moves in, the admin can verify the items to be stored at their facility and decide either to approve or deny the tenant’s move-in. More often, there’s a high risk of storing illegal goods such as drugs or explosives in the storage units.

Hence, enabling this feature prevents hoarding of illicit goods and the occurrence of criminal activities since it is directly brought to the storage owner’s purview right at the time of move-in.

How to enable the feature?
