  3. Marketing pics should have more accepted file types

    When uploading marketing pics file extension ".jpeg" created an error, but ".jpg" was accepted. These are the same file type! More file types should be accepted as well for ease in marketing

  7. Millage tracking for business

    It would be really nice when we put in an invoice, (Income or expense) if there was a line to add the millage associated with that invoice. so at end of year taxes we could print a report for the business expense for millage. Thank you very much! May be even an app for our phones so it tracks millage like that.

  10. Early Payments

    When tenants pay rent early - the tenant portal still indicates rent is due for the upcoming month. If tenant pays early - portal needs to change and tell folks rent is do the subsequent month (or when appropriate).

  11. Hours tracker spent on activities relating to rental prioperties. New tax law 20% ded based on 250 Hrs.

    a time log as well as a mileage log integrated in the software with the ability to choose properties to allocate to would be great. Of course reporting available also is key.

    rental real estate owners that spend at least 250 hours a year involved with the business can get the deduction, according to the IRS guidance. (https://www.accountingtoday.com/articles/business-owners-get-irs-rules-on-20-percent-section-199a-tax-break)

    according to my acct: The 250 requirement is combined for all properties as 1 "enterprise". This include schedule E or pass-through rental real estate income.

  15. Selection for "None" in "Choose Property" report field

    On the financial reports tab, in the "Choose Property" dropdown, I would like a way to choose property "None". This is extremely useful because, invariably, at the end of the year, there are always some transactions that did not get assigned to a property and are not accounted for. Currently it is very difficult to search for and find these transactions so they can be fixed and assigned to a property (I would have to use "Category Ledger" and export to excel). If I am unable to find the transactions, they will affect my totals for the various categories for…

  17. 4000 Income to calculate onto 1099

    Please include a button in the settings menu on setting up accounts to allow any 4000 series income account to be auto tabulated into the 1099 assistant. We have 4001 to account for Section 8 and are manually having to complete 1099's for owners. this is adding additional costs and time to tax prep.
    Thanks

  20. You have a great report for property performance, but you only give two options: 1 property or all properties. I would like to run one owner

    You have a great report for property performance, but you only give two options: 1 property or all properties. I would like to run one owner who has 20+ properties. I would like to run them together with this report, but not all we manage. Can you make it possible to choose multiple properties by the same owner but not all the properties?
