        I too would love to see a mileage tracker. I am currently transitioning from Quicken Rental Property Manager, and it is a feature they have that I use regularly.

        For the few who need mileage tracking, a stand alone app may be better suited or the ability to attach an editable spreadsheet possibly through a dropbox or google drive type repository. But mileage tracking isn't core to the business of PM for the majority of users and might make more sense as a mobile app plug-in that lets someone else develop the means for gathering and storing the data and it ports easily into RenTec Direct through a common structure for data transfer.

        One customer has provided a description of his current methodology. Are there any other details anyone would recommend for the information being tracked?

        "I log the beginning odometer reading and then the end reading to compute total mileage related to a rental. I include the date of the trip and a short description of the purpose, such as maintenance, routine inspection, serving notices, etc. I have one page for each property. I would like to have such a spread sheet so that this information can be entered, and have it tied to a specific property. Then, when annual reports of expenses and rents are run, the mileage could also be printed."

        This would be extremely helpful. It's a significant expense with no clear way to account for it at present. Thanks

        I think this would be a great idea and if I can access Rentec from my Galaxy Note then I can log the miles and post them to the right property sitting in my car. :-)

        I keep track of mileage for rentals in a note book. It would be great if this could be part of the software and have mileage driven for the year for each property.

        Please include a mileage tracker...if you must capture expenses outside of the system it kind of defeats the purpose of paying for the system, right?
