  1. Indicate on deposits made to my bank from rental payments, which tenant the payment came from

    Currently, my bank account shows rent deposits as "Forte". In order to reconcile my books each month, my bookkeeper needs to know which deposits came from which tenants. Can you do something, so the deposit indicates which tenant the money is from?

    • text unpaid rent

      it would be good if there was a way to automatically send out a text message to anyone with unpaid rent on the 5th of the month?

      more people respond to text than email

      • Task Manager Tab

        Task Manage Tab. Create a tab for tasks, let tasks be assignable to property managers or users and send notification to them when assigned a task. Giver options like the work orders have (assigned, in progress, completed). I think this is important and would benefit everyone having it built into the rentec system.

          • Improved Statement

            The owner account statements in Rentec really suck. They need to show more detail and it would really be nice if we could add a comment section. I do my owner statements manually and that is a shame since we pay so much for our rentec program. Is there anyway you could make some improvements.
            Thank you

            • Option to upload our own rental application rather than Rentec's defualt application

              Our applications have more questions and information that we cannot input in the default application fields. We would like to have the option to upload our own application rather than use Rentec's default application.

              • Multiple Owner Logins per Property

                Multiple Contacts/Logins for each Property. When one owner is unavailable (i.e. Military), the other owner needs to login, but can't get through verification without the primary owner. We should be able to set additional owners up with portal access.

                  • Mileage Tracker

                    I would love a way to track my mileage I drive within each property. I have to use a stand alone excel document that I don’t use as frequently, so I often forget to add it. It could be a simple box that gets easily updated on each property screen. Just a thought. Love the software.

                        Can you put together something that will allow us to post a newsletter on Tenant Portals, something like a bulletin. I want to use this to remind tenants of certain things, like rules and regulations, or to carefully read their lease so we don't run into any problems later down the road.

                        • Automatically scroll back down

                          I hate when I go into any property or tenant to edit it, that when am done it brings me back to the top of the page. I would like for it to go back to where I was, so I don't have to keep scrolling back done to where I was, just to start over again after editing another one.

                            • Maintenance Portal

                              Maintenance Portal. A separate login for our maintenance personnel to see and address work orders. The portal would have both “public” sections of the work order that can be shared with the tenant and “private” sections for internal notes.

                              Currently we can provide a separate login and restrict them to work orders, however they still have access to other information that they have no business knowing, such as tenants email addresses listed on the tenant page, any tenants late on rent that show up on the summary screen and even the recurring transactions. A separate maintenance portal or at least…

                                          Hi, as this is a Property Management platform,
                                          I'm sure many of your clients own some of the properties and would like to track their mortgage. I would suggest to update the software to be able to track mortgages.
                                          Thanks
