  1. Enable recurring transfers

    We have many bank transfers - just the same - that occur every month and manually inputting them each month is terribly time-consuming.

    • Be able to choose date when making deposit

      Would like to have the option to choose date that the deposit was actually made. There are times that I do not post or have time to post on the exact date that I show the deposit in the software

      • Show CHECK NUMBERS

        Not being able to see check numbers is really debilitating. Also, there should be the option of sorting by check number rather than date for reports.

        • Create an "All Accounts" report function, not just "All Properties"

          It is impossible to run vendor or category reports across all accounts, which poses a big problem since some vendors are paid out of various accounts, not only across various properties. Also related: transactions related to archived properties don't show up in reports for "All Properties" and they should.

                  • allow for users to choose a date for Automated Management Fees

                    The management fees really should be charged after rent is received (often the 5th or 6th of the month) and so it is not right that they are automatically charged on the first day of the month.

                    • Add word processing

                      I send out a short note to my owners each month with the financial report. Now i do it in Word and save a copy in their paper file. It would be nice to write it in Rentec and have it saved in the owners history file.

                        • column width

                          waited until just now to notice that the width of columns of numbers is a few digits too narrow ... we are opening our business later this week. I am using your software in Vietnam where we use Vietnamese Dong (VND) ... most rent will be between 10,000,000 to 40,000,000 VND, not needing the decimal point and cents ... thus, I would need 9-10 digits with commas as separators (i.e. max total number would be 999,999,000). ANY HELP??

                            • Keep Company Financials Off "All Property" Financials

                              When customers wish to track income and expenses for their company, they can easily create a property for "ABC Company" and post customized income and expense transactions. However, this "property" skews vacancy and financial reports for "all properties." It would be great to have an option to exclude a single property or selected properties from report options.

                                    Thank you for the suggestion Duane. We just completed another feature which allows for greater than 160 character messages which might all but eliminate this issue for you in the first place. If the message exceeds 160 chars it will now still send the entire message to the recipient.

                                  • separate check number/reference, invoice/transaction, and description fields

                                    It would be helpful to have a separate check/reference number field and invoice/transaction number field, while still being able to enter a meaningful description of a payment for the owners to view. I can enter an invoice number in the memo field, and then enter a description in the "display as" field, but then the display overrides the category name on the ledger reports.

                                    • add move-in and move-out category to notices

                                      in addition to being able to see lease expiration dates and late rents is it possible to add a tab next to workorders, tenant screening, mailboxes, and file library indicating move-in and move-out info or in the notices section? thank you.

                                      • include the option to have Rentec Direct monthly subscription invoices automatically emailed to subscribers.

                                        I would love to have the option get a monthly invoice of my subscription history automatically emailed to me for my records. I continually forget to add it to my expenses. I thought about having it be reoccurring, but the number of units manage does change from time to time.

                                        • Archive accounts

                                          I would like to see the ability to Archive accounts, much the same way property and tenants currently work.
