                Need to be able to share a file in the general folder with multiple tenants. Helpful for your customers (us) and also has to save a lot of space on your servers instead of having the same set of files added for every tenant - times a bunch of users

                  • SALES TAX- LIABILITY ACCOUNT AND CHARGE AS RENT W/OPTIONS TO BILL 5 DAYS PRIOR AS WELL

                    PLEASE- following feature
                    I need to add sales tax as a liability because this needs to be paid out to the state as well as we need to be able to record the payment to that liability account. We also need the ability for the sales tax to show up 5 days prior like "rent" as I just had a client short pay rent because the charge does not show until 1st which caused tenant to short pay and this will create major problems.

                    • Credit Card fees to Tenant instead of Property

                      I think when the tenants pay the credit card convenience fee it should not go to the property tab, but to the tenants tab only. In my opinion, it is not income to the property, but to the managment company and a corresponding expense should be posted to the tenants tab to offset the fee income.

                      I am doing all these manually right now, but would like to see Rentec automatically post to tenants only and perhaps add the corresponding expense automatically. It sure would save me a ton of time changing all those credit card payments.
                      If anyone at…

                          • Tenant Applications

                            Tenant application should be more informative. When i input an application that a tenant filled out in the office I only have to put their name, birthdate, ss#, address and phone number. It needs much more infor than that.When i go into application defaults i have everthing marked as yes but those questions are not on the application.

                              • Text/ email when a text comes through Rentec

                                It would be great to add functionality that would notify when text messages come in. This could be done by sending an email each time that a text gets a reply or by doing a forward to a text number. This would help utilize this platform for communication with tenants better and keep all the information housed in one spot.

                                  Divide expense evenly between all properties button.
                                  I have a office expense every month that I would like to divide evenly between every property. Its a different amount every month due to utilities cost. As of right now I have to charge it out individually for every property every month. (71 properties)
                                  Any option to divide expense evenly among properties would be awesome.

                                        • print multiple income/expense statements

                                          The ability to print ALL income/expense statements to one pdf file. So 70 properties would yield an income/expense pdf statement for 70 properties ( 70 pages). As it is now, I have to print this statement 70 times, once for each property.
