  1. Prepaid rents

    It would be helpful if we could pull a rental income prepaid report.

    • allow for users to choose a date for Automated Management Fees

      The management fees really should be charged after rent is received (often the 5th or 6th of the month) and so it is not right that they are automatically charged on the first day of the month.

        • Add word processing

          I send out a short note to my owners each month with the financial report. Now i do it in Word and save a copy in their paper file. It would be nice to write it in Rentec and have it saved in the owners history file.

            • column width

              waited until just now to notice that the width of columns of numbers is a few digits too narrow ... we are opening our business later this week. I am using your software in Vietnam where we use Vietnamese Dong (VND) ... most rent will be between 10,000,000 to 40,000,000 VND, not needing the decimal point and cents ... thus, I would need 9-10 digits with commas as separators (i.e. max total number would be 999,999,000). ANY HELP??

                  • Marketing Tab or Quick Links to Listing

                    It would be useful to have either a marketing tab in the program, or a quick link in the summary page (on the bottom, next to work orders), that would take you to all available listings and be able to toggle them from that location (update, remove.) In addition, if there was a marketing tab, there could be sub-tabs for tracking traffic, leads, conversion rates.

                    • Keep Company Financials Off "All Property" Financials

                      When customers wish to track income and expenses for their company, they can easily create a property for "ABC Company" and post customized income and expense transactions. However, this "property" skews vacancy and financial reports for "all properties." It would be great to have an option to exclude a single property or selected properties from report options.

                      • Delinquency Report

                        Your current delinquency report is sorted by tenant's last name. This report should be sorted by delinquency amount!!!! Or better yet, have a clickable column heading so the user can choose how to sort this report. Also, I'd like to see additional columns in this report. . . for example: 'Monthly Rent'. If a tenant is $600 delinquent and their rent is $600/month, that is much different than a tenant who is $600 delinquent and their rent is only $300/month.

                        • Allow single expense to be split across all units without designating each unit individually.

                          Allow an expense to be split across all units easier. Currently clicking on every unit to create a split expense is quite annoying. simply have an optionto apply the split to all sub-units of a property.

                                Thank you for the suggestion Duane. We just completed another feature which allows for greater than 160 character messages which might all but eliminate this issue for you in the first place. If the message exceeds 160 chars it will now still send the entire message to the recipient.

                              • CAM charges to post prior to due date

                                It would be helpful to be able to set the day that cam charges would appear in a tenant's ledge/portal, or have them linked in on the same day that rent charges populate. Currently, CAM charges will only post on the actual due date, like a standard recurring charge. Printing out invoices in advance, or directing tenants to their portal ledger is not helpful as tenants will not see those CAM charges early.

                                • separate check number/reference, invoice/transaction, and description fields

                                  It would be helpful to have a separate check/reference number field and invoice/transaction number field, while still being able to enter a meaningful description of a payment for the owners to view. I can enter an invoice number in the memo field, and then enter a description in the "display as" field, but then the display overrides the category name on the ledger reports.

                                    • include the option to have Rentec Direct monthly subscription invoices automatically emailed to subscribers.

                                      I would love to have the option get a monthly invoice of my subscription history automatically emailed to me for my records. I continually forget to add it to my expenses. I thought about having it be reoccurring, but the number of units manage does change from time to time.

                                        I would like to see the ability to Archive accounts, much the same way property and tenants currently work.

                                          For example if a check is received e.g. $1000 to pay for various items ($975 rent, $25 inspection fee) that as each one is entered that the remaining amount appear.
                                          Foe example enter the amount of the check $1000 received and then then enter the split transaction assigning $975 to rent. The remaining $25 then shows as needing to be assigned.
