  1. CO renter on tenants

    It would be nice if the CO-renter contact info would show up on the tenant contact list also.

      • 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.

          • Vendor attachments

            Allow submission of files attached to a vendor. For example, I would like to attach an image of the vendor W-9. It would be nice to have that feature on the add/edit vendor screen so you can click to add and attach a file there.

                • add 1099 field to List Vendors & Payees

                  Allow a "Vendor" to be classified as a payee. Add a Show Payee check box so they can be hidden and allow them to be hidden on reporting.

                    • Property Manager info.

                      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.

                        • Improved Statement

                          The owner account statements in Rentec really suck. They need to show more detail and it would really be nice if we could add a comment section. I do my owner statements manually and that is a shame since we pay so much for our rentec program. Is there anyway you could make some improvements.

                            • 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.

                              • unable to delete a category I added

                                I added an expense to "chart of accounts" called "Taxes". I didn't see the default "Taxes" account. When I tried to delete the erroneous one, it would not work. I changed to "Taxessssss" and then it allowed me to delete it.

                                Im sure they are just checking the name and since there is a "default" account it didn't recognize that this was a user created account.
                                Also, it would be nicer if they "numbered" the default accounts in the same order they show on schedule e

                                      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.

                                          Multiple Contacts/Logins for each Property. When one owner is unavailable (i.e. Military), the other owner needs to login, but can't get through verification without the primary owner. We should be able to set additional owners up with portal access.
