  1. Tenant Contact List

    Recommendation for improvement - Tenant contact list allow the report to list all numbers for the tenant. Not just the home number.

    Also program the Tenant contact list to generate for a specified owner when owner is selected.
    Thanks

  2. Online Lease Execution / Signing

    I would like to upload my custom lease and allow tenant's to renew their lease or sign a new lease online. Currently, I create my lease in Adobe, email to my tenants who print it, sign it, scan it and email it back to me. It would be great if they could sign it online. Several other companies have introduced this and it would be great if rentec could as well.

    Thank you for those that replied and provided feedback on this feature. A lot of the feedback revolved around the text editor being complicated to use. We’ve just completed a major overhaul of the editor and it is now much more user friendly. We’ve also renewed the term with DocuSign, so the electronic signatures will remain available.

    Please see this upgrade announcement for details on the new form editor.

  9. Multiple Bank Accounts with Merchant Account

    Option to link in more than one deposit bank account per merchant account. In some states, PM's are not allowed to co-mingle different owner's rent collections so they have many bank accounts in the PM's name but assigned to individual owners. Many states do not allow co-mingling of expenses and income in the same bank account. Most states also require that security deposits be kept separate from other funds.

  11. allow tenants to enter their own information.

    Other software solutions allow tenants to put in their own checking account information to make payments. We have to do that on our side and you should come up with a way to let the tenants do that.

  12. Make it easier for a tenant to setup EasyPay

    It would be much easier to have a tenant setup an EasyPay confirmation if you could have an input form on your site rather than have the tenant print out a PDF fill it in and fax it. You should be able to have something that can be filled out online, enable the upload of supporting documents and have a docuSign agreement signed

  13. Fix a report bug in Rent Roll (enhanced) where vacant properties are missing square feet

    There is a bug with the rent roll (enhanced) report. I have selected to include vacant units and show unit mix. For tenant occupied properties, each apartment shows the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and square feet (ex. 1br/1ba, 600sf). While vacant properties are shown on the report, they do not include the same information. Please update the report parameters to include this information.

  15. Insert each tenant's phone number next to email on TENANTS Tab

    On the TENANTS tab, it would be sweet to see the tenant's phone number next to their email. I know it's only an extra click onto 'edit tenant' but it's tough on mobile devices especially.

    Thanks, you guys are awesome!

    If you mouse over a tenant’s name on the Summary tab, a tool tip window will now open showing contact information for the tenant. This has also been added to the tenant names on the Tenants tab, owner names on the Accounts tab, vendor names on the Mange Vendors & Payees screen, and property manager names on the Setup Property Managers screen.

    This also works on some mobile devices by clicking on the name.

  16. Properties : All Properties : Workorders (display workorder #'s)

    please include the workorder number when you list the workorders

  17. Rental Application, option to upload documents

    When applicants apply, providing the option to upload documents, such as proof of income or photo id, is essential. Having to collect this afterwards is confusing to applicants and not efficient.

  18. Contact List Report

    The tenant contact list report only pulls from the "home phone" field not mobile phone. This should be changed as no one has a home phone anymore.

  19. Add address of tenants on summary page

    I would like to be able to see the unit name or address for each tenant next to their name on the summary tab as it is easier for some users to identify accounts by the unit rather than the tenant's name.

  20. Branded public website

    Rather than sending prospective tennants to my current ambiguous address of "http://rtd4.com/u1473", offer something branded that would incorporate my primanr website address. i.e. "http://billlyon.rentecdirect.com".
