The conversion date is the date from which you will start entering your day-to-day transactions into the new system. You should only have rent, charges, receipts and payments that occur after this date in ShowHouse. Any activity occurring before this date should be reflected in balances from your previous property management or accounting system, and you can provide details of your outstanding rent and charges to ShowHouse as conversion balances to allow them to be processed into the new system.
You will be prompted to set your conversion date when logging in for the first time, although you can change this later in the Accounting module via Accounting Codes > Conversion Date.
The conversion date cannot be changed once accounting transactions have been entered into ShowHouse. A warning will be displayed when you attempt to record your first financial transaction to ensure that you aware of the impact.
