  1. HOA reoccuring monthly charge

    When managing an HOA there is no method for charging a homeowner automatic reoccurring HOA dues. Could we add a category for this (like Rent) under Tenants, Accounting Defaults under Rent for HOA charges.

  2. Add Property Name to the Completed EasyPay report

    I use the Completed EasyPay report a lot to track along Forte deposits made to our bank.
    It would be extremely helpful if along with Tenant Name we could also have the Property Name associated with that tenant's corresponding payment.

  3. Group messaging

    Would like to have the ability to be able to message all tenants on lease throughout their tenancy on management matters. The current system only allows us to do this on lease signing or if there are multiple units in a property. However, if there are multiple tenants one one lease and I want to make sure they both get emailed about a certain item, it doesn't allow me to 'group' them together for that property so that I can message them as a group. This is something we find important when it comes time to stand in front of…

  8. Make it Mobile!

    Hire an app developer or someone to build a functioning mobile website! This way, tenants can pay on-the-go.

    I code HTML; albeit very poorly. My degree is in film-making, so it's just a hobby.

  10. Filter by unit name on tenant tab

    I want to be able to filter by unit name on the tenant tab. When a tenant calls, if you don't know the exact spelling of their name, it would be great to be able to search by the unit name to locate their file, rather than having to start of the properties tab, get the main tenant name, then go back to the tenant tab, locate the main tenant and see if they are listed.

  12. Allow for new default rent category, or for it to b e renamed.

    Change the name of the Rental Income (default). For 2 reasons 1) I don't want the tenant to see it called "Income" because it is an expense to them and subconsciously I don't want them to think this is directly "income" for the owner, some tenants get resentful of the landlords, thinking thy are all greedy. 2) this name is directly tied to a Quickbooks chart of accounts, and this is NOT what it is called there. Particularly because in Quickbooks you can have nested accounts, my income account in Quickbooks is called Resident Charges -> Rent. In Rentech, this…

  13. Customize Work Orders

    The ability to customize work orders. This would allow us to add fields such as "Material cost: $____" for field agents to fill in if they have to purchase extra things for a repair (Ex: a screen door, paint, etc.). Another example field would be a "Labor Hours:____" field as well as a signature field.

  16. Allow Negative Owner ACH Line Item For Multiple Property Owners

    Owner ACH payment currently cannot be entered as a negative amount for a property. For multiple property owners that wish to have expenses deducted from rent instead of owner contribution, there needs to be a way to enter a negative amount into that property's line item box. Example: owner has two properties, one has a balance of $500, other property has a negative balance of $100. Instead of having to do a manual transfer between properties, you should have the option to put ($100) on the second property in the owner payment wizard. Thank you!

  17. Allow managers to keep application/convenience fees without manually adjusting or allow us to post the expense for those items to properties

    As managers we are automatically charged the cost of background/credit checks and credit card convenience fees and if we don't manually enter a charge on the property ledger or delete the income we face the risk of paying all of the fee's without getting any of the income or even deducting the cost to generate those fees. I see no reason for this much exposure to human error. Let us choose to keep those fees or to at least charge the cost of generating them back to the property.

  18. Print Owner Account Info on Deposit Slip

    Provide Associated Account name on Deposit Slip - Today when I print a deposit slip it prints my Contact Info in the upper left portion of the deposit rather the account's owner information. I request that when I make a deposit to an account (similar to printing a check), it uses the associated account owner's information on the deposit slip. I make deposits into 20 accounts every month and have to change my contact info before printing a deposit slip. Very time consuming. Thanks, Jeff
