How do I create a property?

Creating a property

Getting your property set up is quick and easy. It takes only a few seconds to set up its boundaries. Take a look at this video to see how easy it is.

You can create your property directly from the Onside app or follow the instructions below for the web portal.

Onside - Creating a property

Create property from the web portal

Step 1: Log in

Log into the Onside web portal via our website. The page should look like this. 

Add first property (2)

Step 2: Your property details 

Most pages in Onside have a green button in the top right of the page. On this page it will let you add a new property, on the risks page a new risk, and so forth.

Step 3: Set up your map

To make setting up your property easy, we have the LINZ titles uploaded into the system. All you need to do is click on the map and that title will come up. 

  1. Click on the map to select a title
  2. More than one title? Click on the map as many times as your need to select all your titles. If the title boundaries don't suit, you can use the draw boundary option instead. Drag the white boxes to expand or reduce the boundary too.

  3. When you're happy with how it looks click "Save".

Step 4: Register property 

You can add a picture now if you like or come back and do that later. You'll need to have a picture saved to your computer. We recommend one of your front gate so that contractors know they're in the right place.

You can also add the property to a group. Think of groups as folders to help organise your property page if you have many properties. You will need to create a group first by clicking the 'Group' button right next to the property button on your property page.

That's it! Click 'Register property' and you're ready to add some risks to your property. 

Delete a property

If you need to delete your property, go to the 'Info' tab of the property, scroll to the bottom and click "Delete property". Be aware, this will erase all of its history too.
