  1. Inc/Exp Statement > break down the category balances into more detail

    The Inc/Exp Statement report displays the total balance of each category. This request is to break down the category balances and show each transaction that makes up the total balance. We would like the report to continue to show the total balance for each category, but to also include all of the items that make up each total balance. This would be combining the information in the Account Ledger report with the information in the Inc/Expense Statement report.

  2. 30/60/90 day delinquencies - invoice and reports

    Would like to show delinquent amounts on invoices to tenant and owner (HOA) at the bottom of invoices. Generally, payments are applied to most recent balance in my association so the residual amounts in arrears would be nice to note on invoices or a report to individual tenants/owners.

  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. create a report showing owner's address and SSN/Tax ID

    It would be helpful to be able to go to the Manage Owners file and be able to create/print a report of addresses and SSN/Tax ID's - mostly at tax time but also as owners change it is a way to keep a current roster.

  5. 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"…

  6. AP Reports

    It would be nice to be able to input expenses but not necessarily pay them right away. If you could manage if a vendor had been paid, if a check had been printed. The ability to run an AP listing showing all the required payments and what had and had not been paid for a set period. Also it would nice if there was a pre-check report with the check printing so you could review all payments that were cut in a set run without having to run additional copies of the checks since they include all bank info.

  7. Make a Report that shows all charges for individual tenant

    It would be very helpful for us if there where a report that had all charges broken down, like rent, taxes, pet rent, w/d rental, reserved parking all in one report than having to print individual tenants statement. If we had something that showed the rent frequency also would be great, ie: monthly, bi-weekly or weekly. Thank you

  9. Need more reports

    We need to be able to generate a reports from Rentec. We MUST have a way to pull email addresses to send an email to all of our residents at once. We MUST have a way to pull a rent roll to include rent, parking, storage and pet fees, not just rent. We are currently generating in house spreadsheets that is VERY time consuming to obtain this information that should be easy enough to get from Rentec because the information is there but not accessible in a report format. PLEASE HELP!!!

  14. reimbursable's to property owners accounts

    when entering a reimbursement paid by the owner - let's say for a repair you did- when you enter it into the property account it goes in as a credit, (which it should) but when you do the end of the year statement for the owner it shows up as income to them - which it is not, and there is no way to alter the report to show it was money paid by the owner and if you back into the account and alter it, it throws off all of the figures which in turn messes up their tax…

  18. Report Flexibility

    More customization is needed in Reports. Can currently select all properties or one. This limits the analytics possible. I'd like to be able to exclude units that are under rehab. Or report by unit type. Or by zip code. That's just a few examples

  19. owner report enhancements

    Hello, on owner statements and reports it only shows title expense or credit, but no memo or description. Owners are asking for more info regarding their expenses and credits to be included on their statements and reports, like what it was for and so on. On my statements and reports does show, but not on theirs. Can you please add this to your developer list tp be done in the near future, thanks.

  20. Specific Vendor list of workorders

    I would appreciate being able to select a vendor and view all current/closed work orders assigned. For example, being able to see that I sent my roofer to five different jobs instead of sorting thru all of the current work orders displayed for every property with every vendor.
