Pre Approval Report Distribution Update

The reports will be located in the “Reports” subfolders located in each property’s ShareFile folder. All reports uploaded into the portal will remain in the Reports folder unless otherwise requested. Previous reports sent out via email will not be in the ShareFile portal.
