    • Mobile friendly

      When generating a report on a mobile device, specifically an iPhone, you can not scroll the page that pops up. When you try to scroll to the bottom of a long report, it moves the background page and not the report window that pops up. This makes the bottom of any long pop up page impossible to see. Also, please make the bottons and links larger. Im guessing most people use this software on their phone to quickly mark rent collected and capture expenses. I constantly have to zoom in and scroll around on different parts of every page to…

            Would be nice to be able to copy/clone a property. I have dozens of 4units that all need to be set up the same way. Would be cool to do one and then replicate.

                  • Late Fees: Being able to decide what they are applied to in tenant ledgers

                    We have a need to be able to decide which tenant charges receive late fees and which do not (ie late fees on rent, but not on previous late fees, utility bills, another balance of $10, or whatever, etc.) In our case, a tenant gets a flat late fee of $30 on the 4th if rent not paid, with an additional $5/day after. Right now, tenants are being charged late fees daily if something other than rent is not paid and we need to be able to decide what balances/items late fees are actually applied to. There are a lot…

                    • A WAY TO TRACK INVENTORY

                      I buy a lot of inventory that I may not use right away. It would be nice to have a way to track that inventory. A place to put the charge for accounting purposes until it is actually used and can be expensed to the property. An automated way so that when entered in inventory with relevant price and tax information you wouldnt have to enter it again just move that particular item to the property when used. That would help out alot!!!

                      • Make it so tenants can't pay late on easypay

                        Due to the fact it takes 7 days for rent to make it to use, we don't allow tenants to pay late on easypay. Otherwise we are disbursing money that we don't actually have yet and could still bounce. At the current time we have to go in and disable easy pay for anyone that is late. Then reactivate when they are caught up.

                        • 360 photos for marketing

                          Zinspector was a great partnership. They recently update to add a 360 picture to their inspections. We bought this camera and it is great for inspections, but it's not just for zinspector. We have been able to use the pictures on facebook for a 360 degree tour for marketing. It would be good if somehow these 360 pictures would work on our marketing info page within Rentec

                            It would be great to be able to click on a value in the Operating Statement and have the app bring up the transactions that make up that entry to more quickly investigate values that look off.

                              • company name solution

                                My suggestion, under edit tenant for Company name, use address, last name of tenant and company abbrev for example
                                Elm 202 SW - Smith - TXP for texas property partners etc...

                                This way it automatically sorts by address, name and company. I have tenants intertwined with several companies. And it will not sort in Tenant section under company name. Sorting by address first makes much more sence than tenant name as they come and go.

                                  When on the property tab, the name of owner appears. I would suggest that also when cursor is over the owner's name, the contact information such as phone and email can bee seen on screen, that way by staying on the same tab page, we can contact owner, by just reading the little window with the contact information, instead of going out to the owner's tab on settings, then to contact then to go back to the property tab to access the information you want to discuss with that owner.

                                    To add to my others, another pain in the A is when we do have to make a change to ALL tenants, when we click Save Changes, it should revert to the next tenant. Wow that would save a lot of time. We are making simple changes and have to start at number one and scroll down to next tenant and then look to see which one is the next tenant. Major time killer! PS maybe there is a solution for this that i am simply not aware of.

                                      First for new landlords posting hundreds of tenant property data, you need much larger buttons to click, some you have to get the mouse exactly on the center of the X for it to work, i know thats crazy but it takes a lot of time when doing hundreds of entries.

                                      Next, you need an EDIT ALL TENANTS button, that should be a given. Its rediculous for us to go to hundreds of tenants one by one to make a simple change.

                                      Finally, you need a sort button for tenants also. I just put addresses in for…

                                        Rentec website is not very mobile friendly. Would love a deticated mobile app with a simple interface. Would like it to be easier to view maintenance requests, send tenant/owner emails or SMS.

                                          Enable tenants to be able to respond to my questions in the details section.
                                          This allows anyone in the office to read the it.
                                          Thanks
