  1. Recurring SPLIT transactions

    Please allow the opportunity to create recurring split transactions that allow me to post a monthly payment to multiple properties. I have consolidated my loans so I make one mortgage payment that applies to 3 properties. Presently, there is no way to set this up as a recurring payment. THANK YOU!!!!

    • Allow manager to define which charges apply to the late fee

      When setting up charges for a tenant, allow an option to have this charge apply to late fees or not. For example, the monthly rent charge if left unpaid would impose a late fee; however, a utility bill added as a charge to a tenant may not. The system should then only charge a late fee based on an overdue status of the selected charges.

      • Enhance The Deposit Ticket Option

        Bank deposit slips are not being accepted by banks because they are not an item that they can scan. They need the proper coding.

        • Automatically scroll back down

          I hate when I go into any property or tenant to edit it, that when am done it brings me back to the top of the page. I would like for it to go back to where I was, so I don't have to keep scrolling back done to where I was, just to start over again after editing another one.

          • 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.

                • Create default settings for HOA properties within Rentec PM

                  As a PM who manages HOA's and traditional multi-family housing, the ability to set the default billing and income categories for monthly dues at the property level is critical. The owners who are paying their dues are confused by the term "tenant" and "rent charges" and the income category defaulting to a rent category is incorrect and changing it each month during collections is tedious.

                      • Tenant Payments

                        When tenants are making payments in their tenant portal, they are not reminded of the fee prior to hitting the submit button. Is there a way to add this functionality to the site? Also, tenants think their payments are going through when the account information has not been entered. The following day they get a failed transaction notice. It would be good if the payment request not be allowed to look like it is being processed if the account info is not in the system.

                          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]

                            I do not login to Rentec every day or even every few days. But I have renters that have my Rentec SMS phone number and use that to communicate with me sometimes.

                            The problem is that I do not know when they have sent me a SMS to my Rentec number.

                                  We have many bank transfers - just the same - that occur every month and manually inputting them each month is terribly time-consuming.
