  3. Archived Properties on Reports

    When printing operating statements on the financial reports there should be an option to include Archived Properties.... the only way to get a accurate historical financial report is to 'un-archive' properties, run the report and then re-archive them. To say the least, this is a real pain. Please advise if this is possible or how soon we can have a change to make this possible. Thank you. Guthrie Chamberlain, Randy Bocook Homes LLC

  4. Tenant Payments

    When tenants are making payments in their tenant portal, they are not reminded of the fee prior to hitting the submit button. Is there a way to add this functionality to the site? Also, tenants think their payments are going through when the account information has not been entered. The following day they get a failed transaction notice. It would be good if the payment request not be allowed to look like it is being processed if the account info is not in the system.

  5. "Attach Forms/Statements to Tenant's File Library" without having to download & re-upload it!

    1) A simple "Attach Form/Statement to Tentant's File Library button" feature added next to the "print, email, download PDF features" would be awesome! It's time consuming to download say 20 delinquent notices, then re-upload them individually to their file library. How useful it would be to have a button right next to print, email, download pdf, that allows you to attach this right to their file library.

    2) ALSO - when you create 20 statements all at once for delinquent accounts they download as PDFs all in one bulk file - which is great for printing - but to save…

  6. Add Unit # to Tenant Balance Screen

    My owner knows units not tenant names. Thus it would be helpful to see the property / unit # along with the tenant name on the page displaying their running balance:
    Tenants: Accounting [Tenant Name]

  7. Notification when SMS or message is in my Inbox

    I do not login to Rentec every day or even every few days. But I have renters that have my Rentec SMS phone number and use that to communicate with me sometimes.

    The problem is that I do not know when they have sent me a SMS to my Rentec number.

  9. Owner portal - Payments

    Allow the owner portal to have a payment page like the tenant portal so owners can easily transfer money to me for repairs.

    Currently my owners are still mailing me checks, it's slow and doesn't make much sense considering tenants can making payments online.

  11. Enable recurring transfers

    We have many bank transfers - just the same - that occur every month and manually inputting them each month is terribly time-consuming.

  12. Vendor Tab

    Having a Tab associated with Vendors would be handy. Here you could quickly find vendors contact info or simply cut them a check.

  17. Allow split expense across multi-units to have a recurring option

    When trying to post mortgage payments across more than one property (split payment), it would be beneficial to only have one check to the mortgage holder. Since this is an on-going expense, there should be a recurring transaction option for split transactions.
