          • Add sub-accounts to the chart of accounts

            The Chart of accounts should have sub-accounts that roll up into one main account. For example, the "repairs" account should have plumbing, electrical and extermination as sub-accounts with individual totals that then total up to the "repairs" account.

              • Share file from general folder to multiple tenants

                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

                  • Need Merge Field for Rental Property address so we can put in emails (subject line)

                    Please I have posted this over a year ago. Please create a new merge field for the Property address - two merge fields One with Street Number Street Name
                    And another of full Property address of property.

                    I like it in the body of email and I always have the tenants last name along with the property address in Subject line.

                    • Complete overhaul of Online Application

                      I think each property should have an "Application" section like "marketing info" so we can customize the application for specific needs.

                      -Option for Commercial Applicants vs Residential
                      I need business name, articles of incorporations, etc for commercial applicants - things I dont need for residential and there are things for residential I don't need or want for commercial tenants.

                      -Ability to set up custom App fees.
                      Currently only have one option. Each property should have the option for custom application fees. Commercial tenants would be priced differently than my single family properties. Also, I manage an apartment complex which would…

                      • 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…

                              • 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.

                                  • Expense splitting

                                    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.

                                      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.
