  1. Indicate on deposits made to my bank from rental payments, which tenant the payment came from

    Currently, my bank account shows rent deposits as "Forte". In order to reconcile my books each month, my bookkeeper needs to know which deposits came from which tenants. Can you do something, so the deposit indicates which tenant the money is from?

    • text unpaid rent

      it would be good if there was a way to automatically send out a text message to anyone with unpaid rent on the 5th of the month?

      more people respond to text than email

      • Maintenance Portal

        Maintenance Portal. A separate login for our maintenance personnel to see and address work orders. The portal would have both “public” sections of the work order that can be shared with the tenant and “private” sections for internal notes.

        Currently we can provide a separate login and restrict them to work orders, however they still have access to other information that they have no business knowing, such as tenants email addresses listed on the tenant page, any tenants late on rent that show up on the summary screen and even the recurring transactions. A separate maintenance portal or at least…

        • Task Manager Tab

          Task Manage Tab. Create a tab for tasks, let tasks be assignable to property managers or users and send notification to them when assigned a task. Giver options like the work orders have (assigned, in progress, completed). I think this is important and would benefit everyone having it built into the rentec system.

          • Mileage Tracker

            I would love a way to track my mileage I drive within each property. I have to use a stand alone excel document that I don’t use as frequently, so I often forget to add it. It could be a simple box that gets easily updated on each property screen. Just a thought. Love the software.

                          • Late fee Fix

                            When it comes to late rent payments you have to click on each late fee individually, and say you're on vacation and don't have access to input rent it could become a hassle deleting all "late fees" individually and something needs to be created to where multiple transactions can be deleted at the same time.

                                    • Automatically scroll back down

                                      I hate when I go into any property or tenant to edit it, that when am done it brings me back to the top of the page. I would like for it to go back to where I was, so I don't have to keep scrolling back done to where I was, just to start over again after editing another one.

                                      • Allow key strokes to select items from drop-down list

                                        When options are available in a drop down, you can use the arrow keys
                                        to scroll through them and hit enter to select, but it should also allow key strokes for scrolling. For example, if 'Check' is the highlighted option, entering 'C' on the keyboard should scroll to the next item
                                        starting with 'C' such as 'Cash'. It would also be nice if the tab key worked for selecting the field as well as the enter key.

                                          The date fields need an input mask so you don't have to enter the slashes (//). They should auto-populate for faster data entry.
