    • Request to export Tenant Contact List into a standard CSV format

      Request to export Tenant Contact List into a standard CSV format (Google, Outlook, or Apple) that can be imported into other tools like GMail, Outlook, Phone Contact Lists, etc. The current CSV export format is nice, but can not be imported by these other tools.

      • Recurring Fees

        Have an option that recurring charges post the same time the system post rent since we do have tenants that pay their rent before the 1st of the month.

          • turn off credit card rent payments, but still allow app fees

            I would like the ability to turn off credit card processing in the tenant portal, but still allow tenants to pay rent via ACH through the portal and still allow them to pay rental application fees via credit card.

                    Currently the options are one property or all properties. I'd like to select multiple properties and combine the selected properties into one report

                              Allow more customization in the rental application. For example, if your business operates primarily through email communication, you can make the email address a required part of the application.

                              • 4 lines for address

                                Have 4 lines for the address. I have not run across another company in years who only offer 3 lines for the address. For exampie, each Homeowners Association or Insurance company that we pay ALL have 4 lines in the address. It is a huge waste of time for all of us to have to prepare seperate envelopes.

                                  • Sending emails to multiple tenants at one location but not ALL tenants

                                    I often send emails to multiple tenants at a location but not necessarily ALL of the tenants. There should be a way to check off who I want to send a particular email to. Also, spell check on the emails would be great!

                                        • tri-fold owners statements with name and address

                                          On property owner statements I would like to see the owner's name and
                                          address printed on the statement. We have to mail out so rather than having
                                          something that already has address on it we have to go find the address and
                                          create envelopes where if it had the name and address on it almost like an
                                          invoice usually does it could be folded to fit in a see through window
                                          envelope and that would save time and eliminate mistakes of statements
                                          being sent to wrong owner.
