Welcome to VIA Property Editor Edition; an introduction to the basics of using your VIA software to manage your property listings

Your VIA software is a light version of a CRM software which you can use to manage your property listings for the purposes of online marketing and managing them through to completion.

How to login to your software

Logging into your software is easy. Just go to your website address, followed by /webdadi

1) Adding a new user

Firstly, you'll want to ensure that all the members of staff that need to use the CRM software have access.

When you add a new user, you can choose what user rights to give them. This will mean you can lock out certain functionality and ensure the member of staff can only access what you want them to.

VIA allows you to control who has access to your software and fully manage your account, including deleting and revoking users access
