  1. Bank Sync - ability to edit matched transactions

    When it finds a match it should also allow you to make modifications
    such as to the catgory, etc. The way it is setup now assumes you manually entered everything completely.

  3. Add Section 8 check box and Amount to Tenant data

    Currently you have to set up a roommate and rent amount for section 8 tenants. This is cumbersome and prints out as a regular tenants on reports. It would be cleaner to table the section 8 info in the tenant profile.

  5. Owner Reserve - alternative tool

    As an alternative to the existing Property Reserve tool that only indicates a static amount held in the property balance as a reserve, create a reserve fund by property/owner to be treated like a trust account/security deposit with an option to call these funds "Retained Earnings" and reported as such. Also, an option to automatically assess a percentage of collections (similar to how the management fee tool can apply a percentage of tenant payments) and move directly into the reserve/retained earnings account/ledger. Assigning a category # for reporting purposes would be helpful as well.

    Ability to customize canned reports and save for future use. Being able to

  12. Direct Marketing Via Owner|Tenant|HOA Portal

    The URL that we are giving to owners and or tenants to sign into the portal displays internal Rentec features not necessarily applicable to the users who are logging in from the provided URL bearing the company branding.

    Enhanced Features would have this blank and/or allow your users to post messages in the space for their clients (owners/tenants). This would be a nice feature for your client to go under settings|branding options and have the default be blank or allow users to type and set their message.

  13. The Ability to schedule maintenance at the property level for a future date

    Preventative maintenance if imperative... scheduling basic maintenance like changing furnace filters (at the unit level) is important. Going into each unit and creating a work order for a multi unit building is very time consuming. If there was a way to go to the property level and create a work order that applies to each individual unit and creates a separate work order for each unit it would be VERY helpful...

    For example, being able to go to the building level.. and type "Change furnace Filters" click a button that says "all units".. and then put in a date ...…

  15. Accounts tab > bank account ledger, transactions do not display unit #

    When viewing a bank account ledger on the Accounts tab, the transactions display the Payee, Category, and Memo, but the tenant's address for rental income is not displayed. This is a request to display the address with unit # on these transactions.

  17. Custom Fields

    We would like the ability to add custom fields that detail specific information regarding our tenant base, such as 'assisted housing', or 'utilities paid by us' toggles that we can then generate reports on. This feature is offered in Propertyware and was extremely useful for portfolio analysis and administrative purposes as well.

    Thanks,

    Matt Henderson, VPM

  20. Printing/E-mailing Tenant Statements

    Allow the Print All Statements option to not print statements for tenants who want to have their statements e-mailed. Could be a huge cost saver considering the cost of postage and ink.
