Extended Databases


Powerful add-ons to The SDM Housing Software suite are the Extended Database facilities, allowing the user to create fully user-defined fields against the Tenant, Property and Applicant databases.

In addition, the Extended Database facilities exist as a standard part of Payroll & Personnel and within Repairs & Maintenance (to define Job Satisfaction Survey) and within Payroll & Personnel to define fields for holding personnel information.

These fields, once defined, are totally configurable in terms of caption, field type and position within each database and are also then available as selection criteria with all of the main standard reports.

  • Page heading

  • Group Heading

  • Integer

  • Numeric (specifying decimal places)

  • Date

  • Text

  • Tick Box
