  1. Deposit Reports

    It would be VERY helpful to have the security deposit received dates on the reports so we can figure out how much in deposits we took in on what month.

    • Contributions and disbursements

      I've read the contributions/disbursements threads and think everything is going in the right direction... however I think there still needs to be some changes. If I set up new categories for C/D (say 3000 and 3100 as equities) and categorize them as 'other', when I pull a report like an Operating statement to send to an owner, those 'others' show up prior to the Net Income calculation and the total after the C/D is called Net Income (which isn't correct).
      The Owner Statement is a great tool, however it pulls only from the default Disbursement category, which if I use,…

      • Allow Property Owners/ Tenants to setup their own account

        Would be great to have the ability to allow tenants or owners to setup their own accounts. After the owner/tenant requests an account be setup and supplies required information have the new account be verified and approved before the tenant/owner is allowed access.

        • Remove "None" for the Payee field for Management fees

          I prefer it be left "blank" or default to the name of the property management company versus seeing "none" in the payee field when automatic management fees post

            • Exporting Data

              Would like an easier way to export all data entered into Rentec. Currently, the data that can be downloaded is restricted to ledger transactions and has to be done in each individual ledger. A zipped file of all transactions as well as downloading any notes/history and file library documents would be very helpful.

              • Add Return Check Feature

                I have a tenant that bounces a check and there is no easy way to document the bounced check. A return of deposited item fee and then have the system automatically calculate the late fee since the bounced check.

                  • Adding Owners

                    When adding owners and using the tab to enter data, would be nice if the Tax ID was not in the flow of completing the address. Either moving it before name or after address.

                        We have many bank transfers - just the same - that occur every month and manually inputting them each month is terribly time-consuming.

                              Not being able to see check numbers is really debilitating. Also, there should be the option of sorting by check number rather than date for reports.

                              • Create an "All Accounts" report function, not just "All Properties"

                                It is impossible to run vendor or category reports across all accounts, which poses a big problem since some vendors are paid out of various accounts, not only across various properties. Also related: transactions related to archived properties don't show up in reports for "All Properties" and they should.

                                        • Need more reports

                                          We need to be able to generate a reports from Rentec. We MUST have a way to pull email addresses to send an email to all of our residents at once. We MUST have a way to pull a rent roll to include rent, parking, storage and pet fees, not just rent. We are currently generating in house spreadsheets that is VERY time consuming to obtain this information that should be easy enough to get from Rentec because the information is there but not accessible in a report format. PLEASE HELP!!!
