  1. late fees after payment rejection

    I've noticed that when a tenant pays there rent and then it gets rejected for any reason (often insufficient funds) the system doesn't start charging late fees automatically. I think this should be chaged, to start charging late fees automatically

  2. additional tenants and co-signers AUTO ADDED TO PROPERTY AND LEASE

    Having the co-tenants or any additional tenants on the property automatically added to the PROPERTY AND WHEN THEY SIGN THE LEASE. Its very frustrating that I have to go in and add every additional tenant to the property after I move someone in and then I have to add them to the lease and EVERY SINGLE ADDENDUM AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!!

    Which leads me to the other option of sending the lease and all the addendum's I want to send at ONE time. I should not have to go into each addendum separately. I should be able to click…

  3. Tenant Notes Log

    Instead of having a scroll in tenant notes, add a Notes log to be able to date and time track all notes entered instead of hand entering

  4. 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.

  5. Enter all tenants on Lease

    I've taken the time to enter my tenants and the co-renters for a property but when I go to update and renew the lease, only the main tenant goes on the lease. I then have to look up the name of the co-renter and their email address and then manually type it all in order to send the lease. Could we have the option to put all tenants and their email address on the Forms tab?

  7. Security Deposit Return Reminder

    We need help staying organized with security deposit returns. It would be great if the day a tenant is "moved-out" in the system, that it could generate a Reminder on the summary screen that says "this tenant moved-out on March 31, 2018 - send out security deposit". THANKS!

  8. Mobile App

    Would love a dedicated mobile app with a simple interface for managers. Would like it to be easier to view maintenance requests, send tenant/owner emails or SMS.

  10. 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.

  11. Share file from general folder to multiple tenants

    Need to be able to share a file in the general folder with multiple tenants. Helpful for your customers (us) and also has to save a lot of space on your servers instead of having the same set of files added for every tenant - times a bunch of users

  18. Add sub-accounts to the chart of accounts

    The Chart of accounts should have sub-accounts that roll up into one main account. For example, the "repairs" account should have plumbing, electrical and extermination as sub-accounts with individual totals that then total up to the "repairs" account.

  20. Report on Custom Fields

    Be able to export reports based on custom created text lines in property or tenant tabs. You can currently make a custom box to input data on a property or tenant tab but you can't run a report to see the entered data.

    So for example if you make a custom tab for "Has Dog" and you type "Yes". You should be able to run a report for all properties that have text in the "Has Dog" custom box. Then you can see which of your properties have pets, etc.
