Rentec Direct

Take a look at what we’re currently working on at Rentec. Please share your ideas and stories to help us build a product that best fits your needs.

How can we make the Rentec Direct property management software and tenant screening platform better?

  1. The Ability to schedule maintenance at the property level for a future date

    Preventative maintenance if imperative... scheduling basic maintenance like changing furnace filters (at the unit level) is important. Going into each unit and creating a work order for a multi unit building is very time consuming. If there was a way to go to the property level and create a work order that applies to each individual unit and creates a separate work order for each unit it would be VERY helpful...

    For example, being able to go to the building level.. and type "Change furnace Filters" click a button that says "all units".. and then put in a date ...…

  3. Accounts tab > bank account ledger, transactions do not display unit #

    When viewing a bank account ledger on the Accounts tab, the transactions display the Payee, Category, and Memo, but the tenant's address for rental income is not displayed. This is a request to display the address with unit # on these transactions.

  6. Custom Fields

    We would like the ability to add custom fields that detail specific information regarding our tenant base, such as 'assisted housing', or 'utilities paid by us' toggles that we can then generate reports on. This feature is offered in Propertyware and was extremely useful for portfolio analysis and administrative purposes as well.

    Thanks,

    Matt Henderson, VPM

  9. default the Property field

    for those users that only have one ‘parent’ property, it would be greatly appreciated if the software would default the Property field to the one and only ‘parent' property that is assigned to that sign-in.

    The only thing more annoying than having to select the property is to have to reselect it over and over again as I move between the different reports.

  10. Printing/E-mailing Tenant Statements

    Allow the Print All Statements option to not print statements for tenants who want to have their statements e-mailed. Could be a huge cost saver considering the cost of postage and ink.

  11. The ability to do %5 of the rent every 5 days for a late fee.

    At this time the software doesn't allow the ability to do a charge of %5 every 5 days for late fees, this is one of our options for landlords and it has proven very effective for me but right now I have to calculate and keep track of it elsewhere which complicates things, furthermore an owner cannot see the actual amount owed.

  13. Move Back In Function

    We have several instances in which a tenant has given notice and then change their minds. It would be nice to be able to reverse a move out with out having to add the person to the property as a new tenant on the move out day.

    Thanks,

    Matt Henderson, VPM

  14. overdue emails should only go out for overdue tenants

    if I have invoices set to generate 10 days before due, the tenants account shows a balance due even though their payment is not due yet....I believe this causes the overdue email notification to go out even though the tenant is not yet overdue. This request is to change that behavior so that the overdue email is only sent when a tenant is truly overdue.

  15. Ledger View To Be Persistent Until Closed

    When editing a transaction in a ledger, when exiting the transaction, the ledger re-loads to automatically take you to the end of the ledger rather than back to where you were.

  17. MUST be able to sort by check # or date

    When we pull up a bank account it would be nice to be able to sort by either check #, date or amount.

    I would also like to see the ability during a bank rec to click on the transaction and it take you to the transaction

  20. Allow creation of folders

    I would love to be able to add different folders to each property. This would help in organizing the files - as I have many of them to upload. I am currently unaware of any method to do this.
