How can we make the Rentec Direct property management software and tenant screening platform better?

  1. Would it be possible to sum up all of the outstanding rents in the Summary Screen?

  3. Add ACH or Draft as type of expense

    I hope it would be possible to add one more name to "Type" of recurring expense or, for that matter, any other expense.

    Right now, the names in the drop down menu are: Check; Print Check; Cash; Other. Could you add "ACH" or "Draft".

  4. PU the Owners Name on the "Send Owner Money" Screen

    I would feel more comfortable seeing the Owner/Account name on the "Send Owner Money Screen" before I press the Send Money button.

    When printing on BLANK check stock, allow the option of the signature line to print or NOT print.

  6. 1st month's pre-paid rent not posting to default income account

    when posting a payment for a tenant that has been placed into a property, but has a future move-in date, the payment does not use the property's default income account. Once the tenant's move-in date has been reached, it then begins using the property's default income account.

    User's are not realizing this, and are wondering why the 1st payment isn't posting to the bank account ... and are asking if we can change this behavior so that this first payment does recognize the property's default income account even though the tenant's move in date is set in the future? This…

  7. Marketing Page (Online Property Advertisement

    If managing multiple complexes with apartment complexes having their own website, would like to have another URL to link that pertains to that complex only. Currently can link all sub units vacant individually, but would like to see A master unit advertisement page and then a drill down of subunits available.

  8. revenue management

    I'd love for Rentec to help with setting new rents, by analyzing the rents we have achieved (like a lite version of revenue management software, e.g. YieldStar and Rainmaker). Within this system, we should be able to set max rent raises on rent-control properties too, however the housing authority dictates them.

  9. link management fee to property manager

    When editing a property and assigning a Property Manager, this should link the management fees to the Property Manager so that when the fee is posted to the property ledger, the PM's name is listed on the transaction showing who the fee was paid to.

    Alternatively, you could add a Payee or Property Manager field to the Management Fee settings.

    In turn, a PM report should be created showing which fees were paid to which PM's.

    At the moment the work around is to setup a separate management fee category for each PM and assign these custom categories to the…

  10. Search for Split Transactions

    The search field in the ledger should be able to locate not just the sum of a transaction but also an amount within the transaction (a split).

    I have been advised that if I use the search function on the top of the screen it will search for any transaction with that dollar amount. That capability should be at the top of the ledger

  13. display cost on printed work order

    Suggestion and very important: Need to add the costs of the job to the work order so it can be easily transmitted to the owner by email. Right now you have to print the work order add the cost to it, scan it and then upload to the file library or email to the owner. Too many steps when all it needs is to be added to the work order.

  14. Management Fees

    When adding management fees should be able to have the ability to set a management fee at the Master Unit Level if it is Multi-Unit complex, so you do not have to set up each individual sub-unit. There should also be a management fee report to view property and their current management fee structure and the history of increases while managing property.

  15. payment due email created too far in advance when taking over a lease

    When setting up a new tenant taking over a lease it creates an email to send them saying payment is due. Although, for instance, say a tenant moves in August 1st and is put in Rentec now after their application has been accepted, they have signed a lease, and a made a deposit. I'm not sure why anyone would want a payment invoice email to go out this far in advance for payment due for the rent.

  16. Convert Email templates to System templates

    If there were a way to change email templates to System templates that were automatically sent based on dates it would be helpful

    For example.. if there is a standard move out email that says what happens and what to expect at move out etc etc.. and then i want it to automatically go to someone 60 days prior to lease expiration.. that would be helpful

    this would also allow us to send emails to Ping before hand to see if they want to renew or refer someone else.

  17. Reporting

    While I love the reports you provide, I actually have a request for a couple additional reports. 1. It would be very nice to be able to generate a quickbooks style report within a certain date range that shows each category as a heading and then the transactions within that category layed out beneath. An example would be to pull the report from 03/01/2014 - 03/31/2014. The report would probably be multiple pages, but at a glance, I would be able to look at my "Mowing & Landscaping" category and see each date, vendor, memo, and amount that was charged…

  19. Reports By Property

    Option to create Operating Statement and Income/Expense style reports with a portfolio glance to see how each compare to one another without having to pull individual reports for each one. Best-case-scenario would be a landscape report that shows all the properties across the top and the detailed income and expenses down the left side, with sub-totals and totals along the way.
