  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?

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Bulletin Board for tenants portals

            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.

              • Mortgage Tracking

                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

                • Recurring Split Transactions

                  I would like the ability to set up RECURRING expense transactions that allow for splits between items (right now it is set for only one item) such as mortgage principal, mortgage interest, taxes, insurance, reserves, etc. It would save a great deal of time not having to recreate the wheel each month.

                      • Make Everything Searchable

                        Make EVERYTHING searchable in the global search bar. When I add tenants names to the "additional tenants" box in the tenant page, it would be great if that is searchable. I would also love to see work orders and any notes I add to a property or tenant searchable. For example, if I wanted to check the number of drain repairs, I could just search "drain" and see everything that was ever entered with that phrase.

                                  • Enter the expected move out date, but do not have the system automatically move them out.

                                    It would be helpful if we could place the tenant on notice but the system did not automatically move tenants out on that day. This way if anything changes with their move out, makes it easier to just change the expected move out date, vs having to keep moving the tenant back in. Expecially helpful when it is a situation of a hold over tenant/eviction process.

                                      When I click accounts, then click on the actual account, click download this data, an excel sheet opens. If only when that excel sheet opens, it would have an additional column that would list the property location for each transaction. This would be very helpful.

                                        The web address path displayed on my browser for this screen is:
