  1. do not send emails to co-renters under an archived primary tenant

    when sending a group email, co-renters setup under an archived primary tenant are still receiving the emails. The resolution is to make sure the co-renters are archived before archicing the primary tenant, however archiving the co-renter removes the relationship between the co-renter and the primary tenant. This request is to have the automated emails NOT go out to co-renters that are still "active" underneath an archived primary tenant.

    • Inactive Tenants - Assign To Manager or User

      With multiple users/managers, all inactive tenants are grouped together in the Tenant tab where it would be helpful for inactive users (prospective tenants or those who have moved out) to be only visible to Admin and an assigned user.

      Co-mingling them all together is confusing for clients with many managers and many tenants or properties with high-turnover.

      • File Library and ledger for leads

        Some clients accept rental applications and fees from their leads and currently you can not file this information if they are a lead vs. a tenant.

        • Text Option For Work Orders

          In each work order ticket, provide the option (like email, print, pdf, excel) to text. Many maintenance persons/vendors are out in the field and a text reaches them quicker than email.

                    • make printing reports more streamline

                      when I go to print a receipt or report, I have 2 different windows comes up and then still have to select print. when I push the little printer icon, it would be better if it just printed to my default printer.

                            • Add Make Ready Status to Vancant Report and a place to keep track of Make Ready Schedule

                              You have made great strides in the maintenance area and work orders. I suggest there be a way to track make ready progress and if a unit is make ready complete or not on the vacancy report. I currently use a white board for turn progress but in a computer would be better. Also, Back when I only had 50 units I would just know these things, but now that I'm over 200 and have more staff there needs to be a central data base (in rentec) that says if a unit is ready and a spot to schedule these…

                                    “Portfolios” are a term used in some property based applications for lumping a group of properties for reporting or management purposes. Rentec already has this existing functionality, only instead of grouping into “portfolios”, properties are grouped to “owners”.

                                    To use this, visit the Accounts tab, and Add an Owner. Then edit the properties you wish to be grouped, and assign them to this owner.

                                    To report on an owner, select the owner name within the Account drop-down in any of the report areas.

                                    You can also group properties by property manager. If you add a property manager (Settings, Manage User Accounts), then edit the properties and specify the appropriate property manager. Depending on the settings specified, that property manager will only be able to run reports, view, and edit their assigned properties.

                                    If you have a specific use case where the existing functionality does not meet your needs, we…
