  1. Mobile App

    Would love a dedicated mobile app with a simple interface for managers. Would like it to be easier to view maintenance requests, send tenant/owner emails or SMS.

    • Multiple emails to receive automatic notifications

      Adding the ability to have multiple email addresses per tenant receive the automated emails notifications. This is especially important with commercial tenants who may require multiple points of communications.

          • Application Rejection Letter

            Can your system send a decline email to the applicants after we mark the application as rejected? This would save us time from having to manually notify them.

            • Streamlining the delivery of receipts confirming payment via email

              There is a small feature upgrade that I would like added to the rentec direct service. I am a landlord and a user of the rentec direct service. When I receive a payment from a tenant and want to email the tenant a receipt, I am using the "print" feature in response to the
              "Payment for was successfully posted.
              Do you want to print a receipt?
              YES / NO"
              popup dialogue and then selecting email. However, the email address of the tenant is NOT pre-populating the TO: field of the tenant receipt. It really should.

              This is a simple change,…

              • Security Deposit Return Reminder

                We need help staying organized with security deposit returns. It would be great if the day a tenant is "moved-out" in the system, that it could generate a Reminder on the summary screen that says "this tenant moved-out on March 31, 2018 - send out security deposit". THANKS!

                  I would like to be able to create a list by vendor - to show all open workorders, closed workorders that a vendor has been assigned/completed via a report, or be able to sort the workorders by vendors the workorders are assigned to on the workorder page. Currently, we are only able to sort by date, priority and WO number on the workorder page. Please add the option to sort by 'Assigned' to.

                  • Tenants getting email notification when the Building manager or landlord has a question about the repair request.

                    good ! I wanted to request a key feature that many of my tenants have requested! I also agree with. I have already put in the request thru you systems months ago. We wanted a notification link sent to the tenants when us the landlords ask a question about their repair request. I know that they an check in BUT they often don't. So for example I will get a request " Main door does not lock" I will ask " which door in the unit ?" I wish they would get a notification that a new entry has been…

                      --give warning when property manager is going to withdraw fund from tenant's account.

                      -have variable options for late fees so you can enter utility payments as soon as received and the tenant doesn't get late fees until after a rental payment.

                      • Late Fees: Being able to decide what they are applied to in tenant ledgers

                        We have a need to be able to decide which tenant charges receive late fees and which do not (ie late fees on rent, but not on previous late fees, utility bills, another balance of $10, or whatever, etc.) In our case, a tenant gets a flat late fee of $30 on the 4th if rent not paid, with an additional $5/day after. Right now, tenants are being charged late fees daily if something other than rent is not paid and we need to be able to decide what balances/items late fees are actually applied to. There are a lot…

                          Divide expense evenly between all properties button.
                          I have a office expense every month that I would like to divide evenly between every property. Its a different amount every month due to utilities cost. As of right now I have to charge it out individually for every property every month. (71 properties)
                          Any option to divide expense evenly among properties would be awesome.

                          • Turning on Renter/HOA reports without turning on financial reports should have the capabilty to print every tenant statement

                            For customized access such as for onsite managers, once the Renter/HOA reports is on, they should be able to print every tenant statement for the property without accessing the financial reports.
                            The financial reports are reserved for accounting , owners and select personnel.
                            Is there anyway onsite managers can print tenant statements with accessing the financial reports?

                                  Something that has been missing very much the past 5 years i've been using Rentec, is the option to filter tenant be the property address or even by owner.
                                  I know i can do it from the Properties tab, but then i can't see the move in & lease expiring date.

                                  Because of that i add the owner name and property address before every tenant name, what make me trouble in various places around Rentec.

                                    I would like to be able to re-order and sort photos quickly and easily.

                                    This seems like a basic marketing function. Right now the only option is to right click on the photo and move it up or down one position in the order.

                                    The other option is to rename all of your photos in a correlated numerical convention.

                                    No one has the time to tinker around with something so menial. Now my online marketing presence is going to suffer...

                                      • Portrait/Landscape Report Outputs

                                        Portrait/Landscape Report output is inconsistent. When running Operating Statement B for one month, the current 'print' setting comes out in portrait format, but the save as 'PDF' option is in landscape format. Could you add a setting for this?
