  1. More cash register like

    Enter data but not edit data.
    Just like in retail, I'd like my Leasing Agents to be able to enter data, but if they want to 'change anything', they need a supervisor to 'override'. Also, they shouldn't be able to change old data without supervisor approval.

    I still fear an unhappy employee could destroy all of my data if they chose to.

  2. Dynamically Adjust Occupancy Rate Graph in the Summary

    Every time the new unit added, Occupancy Rate drops in the previous months like that unit was vacant. New units should not change occupancy rate in the past.

  3. have an option to designate Units as "Leased" or "Available".

    I would love to see a button in the Marketing Info that would allow units to be seen as "Leased" or "Available" This way potential tenants directed to my available units can see pics and prices for all my units. I have found this is good for local credibility.

  5. Utilities

    Utilities-Currently I have a master metered account with my utility company where I bill my tenants for electricity. I made a spreadsheet in excel where the charges are created, then I have post them as charges for each tenant which is time consuming. It would be nice if there was a spreadsheet format specifically for utilities where there was an option for charging tenants after they were created. Just a thought.

  6. Semester rent charges

    I have some units that rented by the semester, with the students wither making 1 to 3 payments per semester for the payment schedule. Is this something that could be added to add more options?

  8. Wordpress Plugin

    Would be great to have plugin that can showcase our properties within our wordpress websites. That way our visitors can view everything from one location as well as filling out applications.

  10. Option to add Company name when placing tenant vs. First/Last Name

    When placing a new tenant would like to see the option to add the Company Name versus the First/Last name option. The First/Last Name should be optional fields not mandatory

  12. voided checks

    when printing out a check (from any account) there is a drop down menu for - "un-cleared, cleared & to reconcile, etc.) it would be nice to have a title"voided or void" and have it automatically void that number check in the specific chosen account so it doesn't have to be added manually.

  13. duplicate checks or invoice numbers

    Would like for the system to not allow a transaction to be posted if a duplicate check number or reference number is entered. This would prevent duplicate payment of vendor invoices.

  14. Add to Recurring Expenses

    I need another category for frequency of expenses/payments. My local utility company bills every other month. If you would add that option to your program I could match Rentec to my bank statements.

  15. Add Unit # to Tenant Balance Screen

    My owner knows units not tenant names. Thus it would be helpful to see the property / unit # along with the tenant name on the page displaying their running balance:
    Tenants: Accounting [Tenant Name]

  16. Autofill payee & category

    autofill when entering income and expenses. Monthly transactions are basically repeated (rent amounts are the same every month (unless you enter late fees), and trash, electric, water, property management, taxes, lawncare...etc are also the same company/category). When the payee's name is typed in, the category should autofill with the previously used category , saving a lot of time.

  17. make reports interactive and zoomable

    1)When I make a report, and see that there is an uncategorized expense, then I should be able to click on the number, view the transaction and edit it. I have some uncategorized expenses and income that I would like to see to determine what they are, but I can't figure out how to. It should be as easy as clicking on it.

  18. Consolidate owner statement to one page if the owner only has one unit (currently it is 2 pages)

    If I choose to send an owner a monthly cash statement, and this owner has just one property, the system creates two separate but identical statements. One has just the owner's name, and the other has just the property address... Address and name should combine to be on a one page statement.

  19. Hide settings that are not available for your subscription level

    Settings that cannot be modified (e.g., Payable to is only available to Rentec PM subscribers) should be hidden.

  20. Disburse funds to owners who own multiple properties

    OWNER DISBURSEMENT: easier way to disburse funds for owners with multiple properties without having to head into each one, view the balance, and post to each property ledger. Post split transaction to the owner's ledger? Option to "zero out" the rolling balance on all properties and class to 8900 category with a check-box next to the rolling balance total - save on time, especially w/ lots of SFHs.
