                    • Make it where we can set Fields on docusign

                      When i used Buildium they had Adobe Echosign and you were able set the fields where the tenant signs and if they had to check mark something or input something you could set that field as well. I noticed on docusign on Rentec you cant set any fields for the signatures, which results in the tenants signature NOT being in the right place.PLEASE make it where we can set fields, when i go to the docusign site it appears that they have it where you set fields but i cant do it because it is set up through rentec.

                          “Portfolios” are a term used in some property based applications for lumping a group of properties for reporting or management purposes. Rentec already has this existing functionality, only instead of grouping into “portfolios”, properties are grouped to “owners”.

                          To use this, visit the Accounts tab, and Add an Owner. Then edit the properties you wish to be grouped, and assign them to this owner.

                          To report on an owner, select the owner name within the Account drop-down in any of the report areas.

                          You can also group properties by property manager. If you add a property manager (Settings, Manage User Accounts), then edit the properties and specify the appropriate property manager. Depending on the settings specified, that property manager will only be able to run reports, view, and edit their assigned properties.

                          If you have a specific use case where the existing functionality does not meet your needs, we…

                          • Property Reminders Sent to have Property Address included

                            Property Tab/Setting Reminder/ Texting Out to Assistants/Self

                            In creating a reminder via the property tab, The user can see the address of the property.
                            However, when the reminder is actually sent to anyone, the user included.
                            The address is not listed with the sent property reminder.
                            Unless they know all the details of the property, the recipient does not know how to proceed.
                            Currently, I manually type in each address for each property reminder.

                            ( I did not test this via the email, I presume it could be the same challenge)

                            Thank you!

                                • Undeposited Funds Linking Only To Tenant Ledger

                                  Currently when funds are posted to "undeposited funds", the property and owner ledgers are linked in when in actuality, those funds are note received for either until the bank deposit happens. In reconciling accounting periods, the account, property and owner ledger should have matching dates.
