Creating Spaces/Units in Rethink

Have more questions? Submit a request

In this article, we'll discuss the Spaces/Units object and touch on several peculiarities regarding its relation to other objects, and how it can be utilized within the Rethink ecosystem. 

An important distinction to note is spaces/units are dependent on properties. In other words, a space/unit (the 'child') cannot exist without a property (the 'parent') in Rethink. Thus, if a property is deleted, any associated spaces/units records will be deleted as well. Bare this in mind when modifying any property records. Additionally, note that double-clicking any record within the space/unit record will redirect you to the parent property record. 

What type of information is stored in a space/unit record?

In the Spaces/Units object, we can find information such as space type, record type, tenant, rent amount, lease expiration date, etc. Below is a list of available fields along with a brief description of what they are used for.

  • The Property column provides information regarding what property is associated with the space/unit.
  • The Space/Unit Name column contains the labeling or naming convention for that space/unit.
  • The Space Type column will help you identify if the space or unit is Retail, Industrial, Office, etc.
  • The Record Type column will help you identify with the record is a space or a unit mix
  • The Space/Unit Status column stores information regarding whether the space/unit is leased.
  • The Tenant column stores the name of the company or contact currently deemed as the tenant for that space/unit.
  • The Rent Amount column depicts a currency pricing for the rent amount.
  • The Rent (Unit of Measure) column displays the following types: Amount/Month, $/SF/Year, and $/SF/Month
  • Lease Expiration Date column displays the date which the lease will expire.
