  1. Properties Tab

    Under Properties Tab. I would like to be able to change the format in which they are arranged sort of like in a calendar so we can see all properties at once. Currently you have to scroll down and find the property. Take a look at the yardi for residential.

  2. Accounting assets and liabilities

    It would be very helpful to be able to track assets and liabilities. This is the only thing missing from your software that would allow me to do a complete accounting of my businesses. Please consider implementing. Thank you!

  3. Allow Tenants to update phone numbers through App

    It would be great to allow a tenant to update their phone numbers through the tenant Portal app. This would help keep ensure the contact information is correct and that they are able to receive our texts.

  4. glitch regarding late fees

    there is a glitch in your system. If a renter schedules a rent payment prior to it being due, but schedules for it to make the payment after its due the late fees are not required to be paid even though its set on "require balance". This has happened several times in my account

  5. Cash rent via Money Gram or other...

    Cash rent collection through Money Gram.
    We love Rentec and the software. Managing rentals using the software is revolutionizing how we do business. However, one drawback is that we must personally handle cash but our previous approach allowed our tenants to pay cash at WalMart (and other places) using Money Gram. Since the software allowed it, we had a policy that all tenants paid online or at Money Gram. Our tenants who do not use banks would use Money Gram at the local WalMart based on the hours of operation at WalMart and the money moved to us the same…

  7. Additional tenant contact information options

    in the main tenant contact screen please add additional tubs for other members of a family's contact information. Husband and wife should be on the same contact window but there is no room to input the spouse information. In addition only the information of one person from an application is transferred the rest needs to be manually input. tenant can be joined but once the tenants moving out the system un-join tenants which makes account tracking complected.
    My request is
    1.for addition tubs for additional contacts
    2.to have information from application with multiply applicants to be transferred with their information …

  8. Create an option under "How many months of rolling balance for properties summary" to see rolling balance for the current tax year.

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to set the rolling balance that is shown under the properties tab to current tax year rather than just the last 12 months or last 6 months.

    In set-up. Allow admin to allow specific reports from each category. For instance, under financial reports allow or not allow access to CAM reports. Instead of allowing access to all financial reports.

  11. Choice of properties in a Report

    When selecting properties to be included in a Report, I need a way to select say 2 properties out of 12 vs ALL (master unit) or just individual properties. Most software programs allow holding down CTRL and clicking individual properties to be in a report, but this doesn’t work in Rentec.
    Example: I want to assess profitably of rentals on a certain street vs those in another section of town. OR, those by a certain owner in an inclusive report.
    Please consider adding this common feature.

  13. Designate payments

    We would like for the tenant to be able to designate part of payment for rent and part for a propane fee. In other words, payments could be designated for categories that we are charging besides the monthly rent. Thank you.

  15. Combine existing transactions into a split transaction

    ACH payments and and check payments are often deposited in a bank account as a single lump sum consisting of multiple payments. A simple combine dialog with check boxes to include individual payments into a single parent split transaction with a date and memo, NOT TAKING the tenant info of the first item (as happens now if you modify a split transaction, which is also frustrating).

    Currently, we can't even use automatic rent-payment-based management fees since there is no way to do that in a split transaction scenario. We have to delete any entries by ACH or otherwise, create a…

  17. Credit Card Fee's Made Easier! :D!!!!!

    Have the option to not have Credit Card Fee's post to the property, but only to the operating account. This way we don't need to enter an expense to the property if the management company pays for the Credit Card Fee's.

  18. Reminder on Assistants summary page

    I have my assistant set up as a user but it does not seem that she can see the reminders on the summary page. Can this be done or added? It would be very convenient for both of us to see all reminders. I have tested this every possible way, adding her email and phone number and she has not received any reminders.

  19. Owner Account Info on Header of Deposit Slip

    I use multiple bank accounts to write checks and print deposit slips. When I print a check the account's owner information prints correctly on the upper left of the check BUT for deposit slips it defaults to the company contact info. Please update the system to consistently print the owner's account info on both the checks and the deposit slips. Thanks.

  20. Add Owner/Landlord to eSign signatures

    Add Owner/Landlord signature option to eSign documents.

    Certain states require BOTH the landlord and the agent/manager to sign documents for a valid lease.
