      I would like to see mortgage payments split into three accounts. One for principle which would be an equity account and starting with initial investment show equity in the property, Interest - an expense account (which you now have), and another equity for escrow payments. This would then be credited when insurance and taxes were paid and the
      appropriate expense account debited.

      • Allow single expense to be split across all units without designating each unit individually.

        Allow an expense to be split across all units easier. Currently clicking on every unit to create a split expense is quite annoying. simply have an optionto apply the split to all sub-units of a property.

                  • Delete more than one transaction at a time

                    Please add the ability to delete more than one transaction at a time. Daily late charges can add up, and if they need to be removed, it can be a lot of work to remove them one at a time. Having the ability to delete them in bulk would save a lot of time.

                        file library and the property unit file library simultaneously.

                          • Allow creation of a report for "not in any category/property"

                            There is no good way to find all transactions that have "None" for the category, property, tenant or bank. Sometimes "None" makes perfect sense but sometimes it is a typo when entering a transaction. Especially for category and property - having "None" here is often a mistake.

                            The "Category Ledger" report should allow selecting "None" for the category to assist in finding these.

                            The Expense, Income, and Exp/Inc reports should list income and expense items that don't have a category. Same thing with the Operating Statement reports.

                            Not quite as important but still useful would be to allow selecting "None"…

                                    • allow import of financial data in .csv form

                                      Please allow for direct import of financial data in .csv format. Would save a great deal of time importing data from my online bank statement.

                                        • Dynamically Adjust Occupancy Rate Graph in the Summary

                                          Every time the new unit added, Occupancy Rate drops in the previous months like that unit was vacant. New units should not change occupancy rate in the past.
