    • bare bones iphone app

      Please build an iphone app! Just a bare bones way to get tenant name/phone and possible send messages to tenants through the system would be a huge help.

          • Add an option to hide tenants or properties

            When I move a tenant out, I have the option to archive the tenant. If I don't, the tenant is still visible in the tenant list, and all of his or her data remains. If I do archive the tenant, the tenant becomes invisible in the tenant list unless the "Display Archived" box is checked, and all of the tenant's data disappears from reports on the past.

            I would like to be able to hide a departed tenant from the tenant list without losing all the historical data about the tenant. There doesn't seem to be a way to do…

            • show owner company name when hovering over property

              When you hover over a property on the Properties tab, the pop up windows that displays the owner's contact information shows the owner's first and last name.

              This is a request to have that box display the owner's company name instead of their first and last.

                • work orders integrated with zinspector

                  Would love to see work orders integrated with zinspector. Without Rentec Direct having an app for phone this would help greatly if work orders streamed to this app for maint. persons.

                  • Report Sorting

                    Can you PLEASE add sorting to all the reports? Specifically, the delinquent tenant list would benefit greatly from being able to click on the balance column and sort from high to low to make the smaller balances lower priority. It would also be nice to sort by property so that when we're creating 5-day notices, they can be grouped by building. Running a report individually for each property would be more cumbersome.

                      • Reserve Accounts

                        Have a place that can have a reserve money on the accounts (owners) portion, not just the individual properties. This is needed for those with multiple properties. Because when I go to pay the owner it doesn't minus the negative accounts and wants to give them all the money. When a property is in the negative the reserve doesn't work. I need to make sure I hold the negative amounts in the owner disbursement. Hope this makes sense

                            • improvement to Category Ledger report

                              Currently the Category Ledger report is what we are using to double check
                              our rent deposits are correct when taking them to the bank each day. We can
                              print by individual owner or just print all the properties on one report.
                              The issue is when printing all properties on one report they are sorted by
                              address and not by owner. It would be great when printing this for all the
                              properties if it categorized them by owner because we batch our deposit
                              receipts by owner.

                              Example below is how it currently is

                              123 Behrwald $550

                                • Instead of bulk emails to tenants let us post to their notice column on portal page

                                  Instead of sending out emails to every tenant with general information that might be helpful, (such as storm preparation information) (even general updates) I would like the ability to upload a document that will show up under the tenants "Notices Column". So when they log into the tenant portal that is one of the first things they will see. Even if it is set to be archived within 48 hours or so.

                                      • Property Manager Rents Report

                                        On the property manager rents report, it automatically rental income from the 4000 Rental Income category. However, I use unique categories for rental income for each property. I would like to see that rental income on the report.

                                        • rental application - leave answers blank instead of defaulting to NO.

                                          the online rental application default settings allow me to ask applican'ts if they've been evicted, filed bankruptcy, or have a felony. However, it does not allow me to require the applicants to answer these questions, and it defaults the answer to No even if the applicant skips over these questions.

                                          Please leave these questions as unanswered, unless the applicant selects Yes or No, instead of answering the question as No for them.
