  1. Excel Spreadsheet-Property Column Addition

    When I click accounts, then click on the actual account, click download this data, an excel sheet opens. If only when that excel sheet opens, it would have an additional column that would list the property location for each transaction. This would be very helpful.

    • Tenants : Messaging screen improvement

      Tenant: Messaging
      Is it possible for Rentec to add a "TO" column which displays the email address the messages were sent to on the Tenant:Messaging screen?

      • Financial Reporting needs an update

        Financial reporting needs an update. Should be easy to do. I am amazed CICTotal has made it this far with the current reports. The go to financial statement needs to be the Profit & Loss Statement. Change the name and title of the current "Income/Expense Report" to be "Profit & Loss Statement" Not sure if the current name choice was an attempt to avoid responsibility for producing inaccurate financial statements or what, but it is definitely curious. I would be reluctant to show the current statements to a client or partner. Currently I am exporting to excel to change the…

          • Mass/Group email to all delinquent tenants

            I believe it would be a great idea to create a feature where it enables any PM company to submit a mass email to all delinquent tenants with a past due balance.

            • Auto-Save Feature

              Is there any way I can enable Auto-save.
              when I'm typing something and forget to click (save change) I have to retype it over. sometimes after 30 minutes of work unsaved.
              is a lot of work to retype it . almost everything now a day is auto-save.
              I hope to see that feature some day here in Renteck.
              thank you

              • owner info in property info

                Please allow users to enter owner info in the property window. As it is now, the owner email , phone and name when you hover BUT there doesn't seem to be a way to change that information.
                We need to have Michael Hernandez email changed to info@realinvestments.com; we change it in the owner account but it doesn't reflect in the property info.

                  • Need Merge Field for Rental Property address so we can put in emails (subject line)

                    Please I have posted this over a year ago. Please create a new merge field for the Property address - two merge fields One with Street Number Street Name
                    And another of full Property address of property.

                    I like it in the body of email and I always have the tenants last name along with the property address in Subject line.

                      Don't have rentec scroll to the bottom of the ledger after editing a transaction, but rather put you in back in the same spot where you left off.

                      • Complete overhaul of Online Application

                        I think each property should have an "Application" section like "marketing info" so we can customize the application for specific needs.

                        -Option for Commercial Applicants vs Residential
                        I need business name, articles of incorporations, etc for commercial applicants - things I dont need for residential and there are things for residential I don't need or want for commercial tenants.

                        -Ability to set up custom App fees.
                        Currently only have one option. Each property should have the option for custom application fees. Commercial tenants would be priced differently than my single family properties. Also, I manage an apartment complex which would…

                            When declining application please put something in system so I can put in why applicant was declined. We have many rental properties and same applicants apply sometimes weeks apart and although I can tell they were declined I cannot recall why. It would be nice to have space to document reason in case I need to look back at it at a later date.

                                    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.

                                      Allow "default" accounts in the chart of accounts to be removed. For example, I manage my own properties. I will never need to record HOA dues or CAM fees as income.
