    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.

  3. 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.

  7. Accept security deposits online.

    I was asking about tenants paying their security deposits online. Support said that:

    "Our system is not designed for tenants to pay their security deposits online, it's designed to accept rent payments from tenants."

    So yes, they can pay money that is applied as additional rent and I can manually transfer it to the security deposit on the ledgers, but doesn't it make sense to just accept security deposits separately from the tenant portal?

    This seems like a no-brainer. Please implement this change!

  8. 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.

  15. 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"…

  17. Additonal Filters In Tenant Tab

    Under the "Tenants" tab, be able to filter results by property/address, not just tenant or occupants name. It would be helpful to have an additional searchable field for tenant,s like there is for properties, so that misc. items can be searched through the filter, such as "has a cat" "eviction in progress", etc

  19. Add support for auto-tax calculations

    Some parts of the U.S., including major cities in Arizona like Phoenix, have a sales tax which applies to residential rental properties. In Phoenix, it's 2% (of the rent), and tenants must pay it every month, along with their rent. Owners/managers must pay the city monthly.

    Rentec Direct doesn't have a particularly good way of dealing with this, and it seems like a valuable feature that should exist. The tax should automatically be computed (x% times the rent amount) and posted along with the rent. A way of reporting the monthly totals would be nice too. I find the workaround,…
