  1. Remove need for primary tenant and treat tenants equally

    Treat all tenants equally, so there is no primary tenant as is required today.

  2. Don't require custom payee to be saved to vendor list

    Don't save custom payee to vendor list

    New style forms when posting an expense...

    The problem with this is I need to use the old forms because I don’t want to save the payee since I’m only paying them one time. It makes you save it and my list is way longer than I need it. Note: Not liking the new version very much…

  3. Allow a 'Payee' field for the automated rent payment function.

    Allow a 'Payee' field for the automated rent payment function.

    This would avoid the payee field for Management Fees displaying 'NONE'
    and would allow simple tracking for management fees collected.

  4. Second tenant can't be added until first tenant moves in

    When I add a tenant to a vacant property and assign a move-in date in the future, the "place new tenant" option is not available until the move-in date so I have to wait until after the move-in date to add a co-tenant. It should be possible to add a co-tenant immediately after adding the primary tenant.

  6. sort deposits shown under undeposited funds

    Under the Undeposited Funds account is the ability to "View Deposits". The order of deposits shown seems to be arbitrary. ANY repeatable order (date of deposit being the most obviously useful) would be better than no apparent sort order.

    I suggest you sort these deposits by date of deposit.

  8. Multi-Level Expense items

    Like: Utilities, Utilities/Gas Utilities/Electricity Utilities/Sewer.

    If I want to know the heating cost, I don't want the sewer. However, I need them combined for tax purposes.

    I have been doing that for decades with both my real estate software and personal accounting.

  9. Auto Assign Work Orders

    The system automatically assigns a workorder number if created in our administrative account. However is doesn't assign a workorder number if it is submitted by our tenant through their tenant portal.

  10. Add Date sorting to Search Pane

    I frequently use the Search Pane to find transactions, for example, to find a transaction that I need to edit because the date or amount was entered incorrectly. Usually I am interested in more recent transactions. I would like the ability to click on a column heading in the output table and sort ascending or descending on the column heading, particularly Date.

    Usually I want to see recent transactions so I have to scroll down to the bottom of the table. It would be nice to see the recent transactions at the top. I currently have 2 years worth of…

  11. Add filer for vacant units

    It would be helpful if there was a filter for all vacant properties from the Properties tab. then I could go down each one to post onto Craigslist. Now I have to go to Main screen to see vacant list.

  15. Change sign of balance when reconciling a credit card account

    When reconciling a credit card account, I have to remember to put a negative sign in front of the beginning balance and ending balance. Seems like Rentec should assume negative balances when the account is marked as a credit card account so I can type in the number directly from my credit card statement.

  16. 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,…

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  20. 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.
