  5. Screening applicants

    It would make the application process faster if the final screening page imported all of the information from the application (address) so we wouldn't have to do it manually.

  6. Rent check number

    Can we add a variable %rent_check_number% to the rent receipt that is emailed to the tenant after posting a rent? I looked up but didn't find in the existing list.

  7. Incorporate Scheduling Software for Showing Appointments

    We currently use youcanbook.me for people who are interested in our property to schedule appointments with us. Their software allows us to adjust time slots, text reminders to those who have scheduled (important!) and more. The amount of time it saves me not having to deal with phonecalls is wonderful. I also have fewer no-shows with the text reminders.

    It would be so great to have this or something like it incorporated into your marketing website that property managers can use when advertising properties.

    Here is a screenshot of one I have set up right now.

  8. Rename files when or after uploading Files

    It will be very helpful to have this option when uploading files , in my case I upload all receipts out of my smartphone but I end up having duplicate files with the same name image.jpg.
    if the system allows to rename the file when uploading or automatic name default such as (Date &time) ex: photo-2015-04-23-07-30-00.ext it will help retrieve the file quickly and or download the file without overwriting problem .
    thanks

  13. Offer an Email Option for Property Managers

    I love services like yours that push an vacancy ad out to multiple sites like Zillow, Trulia, Hotpads, Craigslist etc. However, part of the problem I run into is taking time to respond to each person. My work around involves using a google vacation responder, their canned response with filter options, and a Zapier auto-responder (because the first two didn't work with either Trulia or Zillow, or both, I can't remember). It would be soooo nice to have email designed to auto-respond to emails from these sites.

  14. Automated Batch Owner Payment Disbursements

    The option to schedule automated ACH owner disbursement transactions, similar to the tenant's option to pay rent with recurring or single-pay. Include the option to distribute the disbursement over an owner's portfolio (funds from multiple properties) and to batch all owner ACH payments at once.

  15. Make it possible for us to keep tack of our own in-offices accounting within Rentect.

    I have tried to keep tack of our in-office accounting in Rentec by creating a dummy property. I labeled it "A" and I had my logo for the picture.

    The problem I had was in labeling each line item. It was like double entries, charging or giving credit twice to owners, vendors etc... (It was very confusing)

    I am now using QuickBooks for company stuff. It would be nice not to have two separate systems.

    Thanks,
    Gilbert Sorola

  17. Mid Lease Property Report

    I would love to see a "property report" component added to Rentec that allows me to create and manage my required mid lease reports to owners.

    The features I envision are:
    1. REMINDER - You have "X" time (2 weeks?/1 mo?) until the mid-term report is due and
    2. Use this generic template / document to create a Property Report that allows us to inform and update the owner of the property status and condition.

    I know home inspectors have docs/reports that they use to do this. It would be helpful if I could use or customize a few property…

  18. Search Functions

    Under tenants searching by property would be helpful. Also under owners, the ability to search for checks by number would helpful.

  20. Allow Landlords to Select Specific Properties (not all) for Inclusion in Reports

    Below is a question I submitted to "Support." I was surprised to learn my need -- a customary option in most reporting/financial software -- was not available in Rentec.

    Question: For certain reports, I need to limit properties to those managed by me. For other reports, only those managed by a management company. Another need is a presentation report of select properties for sale as a package. The choices I've found: ALL PROPERTIES or only one selected property do not meet this criterion. How do I do this?
