Stock types: Stock types are a way of categorising your stock on Community Insight. Each stock property can be assigned a stock type of your choice.

  • Each stock type is displayed on the map using a different colour and shaped icon, which you can choose.
  • You can toggle each type to show, or hide, on the Community Insight map.
  • Each stock property can be assigned a stock type of your choice, there is a limit of 30 stock types. For example, previous users have defined stock into types such as general needs, supported housing, shared ownership, affordable rent.

Stock metadata: You can add additional information to individual properties, which will then be displayed on the map when an icon is clicked on. In Community Insight, this is called stock metadata.

The stock metadata can be viewed by clicking on the individual stock icon.

For guidance on how to upload your stock information, please see the step by step section.
