  3. Allow Tenant to Look themselves up in the portal and claim/create their account

    Allow the tenant to find their information by looking themselves up (SSN, Drivers License #, or other PII on file). That way if I inherit a tenant, I don't have to track them down for their email address to allow them online portal access.

  7. Misc

    When making changes to large numbers of tenant accounts, after I modify the tenant whose name for the sake of the example starts with "S", when I move on to the next tenant I have to scroll starting at "A" just to get to "T". It's a huge waste of time if you have 200 tenants and would be much easier if I could just move on from "S".

  8. Global change

    Right now when I have an annual increase for a property, I have to search and open each tenant individually to adjust their rent. I should be able to do a global change such as $275 to $300

  10. Form ideas

    The forms editor is very frustrating to work with. I'd love to be able to upload a form and have it retain the docx or odt format while still being able to utilize your strings (%fullname% for example.)

    Also, please make "all names" show all names.

    Thanks!

  11. Multiple Worksheet Rent Roll for All Properties

    I would love to see a way to export an formatted HTML to Excel file for All Properties Rent Roll delineated into separate worksheets by owner. For Example, if I have 5 owners, I'd like a file that has 5 worksheets with each rent roll.

  12. Additional Tenants on Approved application and lease

    When you start a lease for tenants that both tenants be on the lease NOT JUST ONE. I should NOT have to add the second tenant!!! Its should be done automatically. That goes for the same when you approve an application. If there are two people on the application and you approve it it should approve BOTH APPLICATIONS AND PUT BOTH PEOPLE INTO THE COMPUTER. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO ADD THE SECOND TENANTS INFO IN ORDER TO GET THEM INTO THE COMPUTER.

  13. Create Custom Reports

    I would like to customize the income/expense report to exclude owner contributions, or at least separate owner contribution to a separate category. The report looks unprofessional when sending it out to clients and the break down is not accurate because owner contributions/payouts is categorized as an expense.

    Basically it would be nice to create customized reports like the category ledger, but put into a simple and professional one page document to send out each month to clients. Or at end of the year for tax time.

  15. Transfers part of split transaction

    In the split transaction function, I should be able to "transfer" funds as part of that split transaction.

    When I make a mortgage payment, I can split it into three accounts:
    Mortgage Interest (charged)
    Principal Pay-down (transfer)
    Escrow Monies (transfer)

    Then the monies should be transferred to corresponding accounts that I have set up part of a mortgage.

  16. Sync account with

    You have 4 different ways to sync accounts with City National Bank (CNB) through CNB's online service portals. However, I am unable to sync my CIC Total Manager account to my CNB account via their "Treasury Net" online portal which requests a Customer ID, User ID, and Password. Please figure out how to sync with CNB's Treasury Net because this is my only way of accessing my CNB accounts online.

  17. Tie management fee amount to income category

    Allow different management fee for different income categories. Example: Rental Income is 8, 9 or 10%. But Late Fee Income is split 50/50 with the owner. Having this set by category would save time. Thanks!

  18. Allow location setting for all convenience fees

    Online payment Convenience Fees post to the property, so each month I need to move those transactions to our "Property Management" property. Since we pay the bank fees and don't want the fee income to be sent to owners.
    If there was a way to set a default property for all convenience fees, that would be great! Donna
