  2. 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,…

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. Add expense type category - ACH

    ACH is available for income type but not available for expense type. Many utilities and bills are now paid with ACH autopay.

  7. 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.

  8. Common Files

    Other Management data base has a common files tab. It would be useful to have this feature to store lease templates, resident notices etc. These templates would be uploaded as a doc. to be edited.

    Thanks

  9. Be able to choose date when making deposit

    Would like to have the option to choose date that the deposit was actually made. There are times that I do not post or have time to post on the exact date that I show the deposit in the software

  10. Show CHECK NUMBERS

    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.

  11. 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.

  14. Scheduled / Emailed Reports

    As a property owner, there is NO reason I should have to login to see some basic daily, weekly, or monthly numbers. I want to be able to set up a scheduled report that will automatically email me a report at defined times each month. The report should arrive as a PDF.

  16. 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!!!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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??
