    • Option to upload our own rental application rather than Rentec's defualt application

      Our applications have more questions and information that we cannot input in the default application fields. We would like to have the option to upload our own application rather than use Rentec's default application.

      • 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…

          • Embedding Rentec Direct Webpage

            Allow rentecdirect webpage to be embedded to property management website. This would allow immediate access to RentecDirect from company's own site as opposed to opening a new window.

            • Credit Card Fee's Made Easier! :D!!!!!

              Have the option to not have Credit Card Fee's post to the property, but only to the operating account. This way we don't need to enter an expense to the property if the management company pays for the Credit Card Fee's.

              • Create a property profile

                It would be awesome to be able to copy/clone a property so as to eliminate repetitive re-entry. For example, my company almost exclusively buys fourplexes that are 2/1.5. If I could just copy one of the existing properties it would save me lots of work. Or maybe enable the ability to create a 'property profile' or something...

                  • Accept security deposits online.

                    I was asking about tenants paying their security deposits online. Support said that:

                    "Our system is not designed for tenants to pay their security deposits online, it's designed to accept rent payments from tenants."

                    So yes, they can pay money that is applied as additional rent and I can manually transfer it to the security deposit on the ledgers, but doesn't it make sense to just accept security deposits separately from the tenant portal?

                    This seems like a no-brainer. Please implement this change!

                    • Change the online application to distinguish occupants from applicants

                      Change the online application to distinguish occupants from applicants.

                      The program defaults all occupants over 18 to an applicant and charges the application fee. The button calls them occupants and doesn't indicate that they will be treated as an applicant in the process.

                      Allow the adults to select whether hey are to be applicants or occupants to avoid this.

                          • Right-click and select Reconciled

                            It would be nice to be able to right-click on a transaction and be able to select "reconciled" vs having to Edit Transaction first then change.

                            • 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.

                                        I would like to customize the receipt form to show tenant's address.

                                          We get many calls each day from potential tenants asking if a particular house is still for rent or not. There is no easy way for us to figure out who the property manager is. It would very beneficial for us to be able to quickly glance at the property and find out which manager is in charge of it.
