  1. make a report that allows landlords to keep up with insurance concerns.

    this is a 2 fold idea, 1. allow me to input the tenant's rental insurance details and flag them for a report if they do not have rental insurance or it has lapsed.
    2. allow me to input information that a blanket homeowners policy would like to see (updated electrical, plumbing, flood zone, new roof, building type, and ofc, bed/bath count, sq. ft. and year built.) then allow me to print that report to give to the insurance company. Every so often they require this information, and with the amount of new acquires and such it is a huge hassle…

  2. Need to sort properties by property manager

    In Rentec you are able to assign different property managers to different properties however there is no report that allows you to sort by the property manager and see how each property managers portfolio is performing. This is a MUST!

  4. be able to print an abbreviated list of work orders instead of each one being a full page

    When I want to know what the status is on my work orders it would be helpful to get a list of them that just has resident name and adr, problem, assignment date, assigned to, dates opened, assigned, and current status

  5. Tenant Payment Transaction Simplification

    It would be great if you could add payment boxes according to automated charges rather than us having to add a split payment each time. I manage 133 units and have multiple charges per resident in many cases.

    For instance if I have a resident that has a rent, parking, pet, utilities charged each month this becomes very time consuming to add and categorize each payment.

    If you could rather automate the categories and we could just enter an amount into each line item that would be much better. Even if it's just a zero in some cases it would…

  6. dates are inconsistent on online lease forms

    %date% and %move_in_date% are in different formats (in this case, U.S.
    date format and mysql format, e.g. 11/05/2015 vs. 2015-11-05). This
    illustrates why it's generally preferable in legal documents to write out
    the date (November 5th, 2015), since this removes all potential ambiguity, and nobody wants to pay lawyers to argue over the date format or argue with an obstinate tenant over dates they're purposely twisting.

  7. New tenant report that shows who occupied which unit when

    A report that shows all units who occupied it and thru what dates. My income this year is less than last year so wanted to run a report that would show the occupancy / vacancy history and who occupied the unit for both years so I could compare

  8. delinquent tenant report by category

    It would save a lot of time if there was a way to pull a delinquent tenant report by category. It would allow us to pull a report and see just the tenants that have a negative rent balance as opposed to one that includes everything.

  9. Make a Joomla Module that lets people embed the tennant features inside thier own website.

    Make a joomla module where landlords can give direct access to your tenant features from within their own website so renters do not have to enter 2 sets of id/password or be directed to another site to see payment history / file access / Make payments.

  11. delinquent reports

    Currently you can only choose all or one property at a time to run delinquent reports.The program really needs an option that we can run delinquent reports for specific properties -, for example all single unit properties excluding buildings and commercial properties.

  12. Add a Vendor tab to top ribbon

    It would be nice to see a Vendor tab across the top menu so the top ribbon would look something like: Summary|Properties|Tenants|Vendors|Accounts, etc.

  15. automatically split late fees between property manager and owner

    I split late fees with the owner. I would like a way for the program to automatically split them for me rather than having to do it manually.

  16. please add %prorated_rent_amount% as a database field on the online lease form

    when creating a lease form for online signing, there isn't an option to include the 1 month's prorated rent amount on the form. Please add a database field that will auto-populate the prorated amount on the lease form.

  18. signature line on online lease forms is confusing

    %signature% expands to "Tenant: Name O. Tenant Date Signed", all
    underlined, all together. This looks unprofessional as well as confusing - where exactly should the tenant sign, above or below the underlined text? Where does the date go? Only the text is underlined, and no other lines exist.

  20. add toggle to not include archived transactions on Trial Balance B report

    when pulling the Trial Balance B report, the security deposits column appears to be including transactions associated with archived tenants. I would like a toggle to be added to this report so that a user could choose whether or not to include archived accounts in the calculations.
