    • showing service

      A scheduling program for showing units. Where the applicant applies and confirms showing appointments and also is directed to the apply page. ShowMojo.com has a great service but its too expensive for someone with only a few units. /this help cut back on time spent sitting at apartments for unconfirmed showings.

      • Separate Active Tenants from Inactive Past Due

        As stated in previous idea submissions...we love the software! Your work is making us more successful and making our portfolio easier to manage.

        Idea - Separate Active Tenants and Inactive Tenants who are Past Due into different tables or sections on the Summary Tab.

        An active tenant or two who are past due for this month get mixed with past (inactive) tenants who owe money after move-out.
        While collection of both are important, the current active tenants are near-term events that may require a letter or eviction. Past or inactive tenants are longer-term efforts that are or will be turned…

        • 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…

              • late fees after payment rejection

                I've noticed that when a tenant pays there rent and then it gets rejected for any reason (often insufficient funds) the system doesn't start charging late fees automatically. I think this should be chaged, to start charging late fees automatically

                • Maintenance Portal

                  Maintenance Portal. A separate login for our maintenance personnel to see and address work orders. The portal would have both “public” sections of the work order that can be shared with the tenant and “private” sections for internal notes.

                  Currently we can provide a separate login and restrict them to work orders, however they still have access to other information that they have no business knowing, such as tenants email addresses listed on the tenant page, any tenants late on rent that show up on the summary screen and even the recurring transactions. A separate maintenance portal or at least…

                    • 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.

                      • Mortgage Tracking

                        Hi, as this is a Property Management platform,
                        I'm sure many of your clients own some of the properties and would like to track their mortgage. I would suggest to update the software to be able to track mortgages.
                        Thanks

                        • Security Deposit Return Reminder

                          We need help staying organized with security deposit returns. It would be great if the day a tenant is "moved-out" in the system, that it could generate a Reminder on the summary screen that says "this tenant moved-out on March 31, 2018 - send out security deposit". THANKS!

                            Would love a dedicated mobile app with a simple interface for managers. Would like it to be easier to view maintenance requests, send tenant/owner emails or SMS.

                            • Task Manager Tab

                              Task Manage Tab. Create a tab for tasks, let tasks be assignable to property managers or users and send notification to them when assigned a task. Giver options like the work orders have (assigned, in progress, completed). I think this is important and would benefit everyone having it built into the rentec system.

                              • Late fee Fix

                                When it comes to late rent payments you have to click on each late fee individually, and say you're on vacation and don't have access to input rent it could become a hassle deleting all "late fees" individually and something needs to be created to where multiple transactions can be deleted at the same time.

                                        • Sub accounts for the type of transaction

                                          It will be very helpful to have sub accounts under either income or expense sort all type of transaction by cash ,credit cards,checks ... and Can be viewable under accounts tab .
