  2. improvements to rental applications

    When I go into Rentec page to look at the list of people who have applied for a property , I would like a place on the application screen to make notes about that application or mark them in some way, to remind me why we rejected , or if we are keeping that application on hold for more info, etc.
    Right now, my only options are to accept and add lease, accept , or deny .

  4. Properties Tab

    Under Properties Tab. I would like to be able to change the format in which they are arranged sort of like in a calendar so we can see all properties at once. Currently you have to scroll down and find the property. Take a look at the yardi for residential.

  5. Allow Tenants to update phone numbers through App

    It would be great to allow a tenant to update their phone numbers through the tenant Portal app. This would help keep ensure the contact information is correct and that they are able to receive our texts.

  6. Create an option under "How many months of rolling balance for properties summary" to see rolling balance for the current tax year.

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to set the rolling balance that is shown under the properties tab to current tax year rather than just the last 12 months or last 6 months.

  12. Choice of properties in a Report

    When selecting properties to be included in a Report, I need a way to select say 2 properties out of 12 vs ALL (master unit) or just individual properties. Most software programs allow holding down CTRL and clicking individual properties to be in a report, but this doesn’t work in Rentec.
    Example: I want to assess profitably of rentals on a certain street vs those in another section of town. OR, those by a certain owner in an inclusive report.
    Please consider adding this common feature.

  14. Designate payments

    We would like for the tenant to be able to designate part of payment for rent and part for a propane fee. In other words, payments could be designated for categories that we are charging besides the monthly rent. Thank you.

  17. Owner Account Info on Header of Deposit Slip

    I use multiple bank accounts to write checks and print deposit slips. When I print a check the account's owner information prints correctly on the upper left of the check BUT for deposit slips it defaults to the company contact info. Please update the system to consistently print the owner's account info on both the checks and the deposit slips. Thanks.
