  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • 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…

                    • Automatically scroll back down

                      I hate when I go into any property or tenant to edit it, that when am done it brings me back to the top of the page. I would like for it to go back to where I was, so I don't have to keep scrolling back done to where I was, just to start over again after editing another one.

                          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.

                            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 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…

                                    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

                                    • additional tenants and co-signers AUTO ADDED TO PROPERTY AND LEASE

                                      Having the co-tenants or any additional tenants on the property automatically added to the PROPERTY AND WHEN THEY SIGN THE LEASE. Its very frustrating that I have to go in and add every additional tenant to the property after I move someone in and then I have to add them to the lease and EVERY SINGLE ADDENDUM AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!!

                                      Which leads me to the other option of sending the lease and all the addendum's I want to send at ONE time. I should not have to go into each addendum separately. I should be able to click…

                                      • Tenant Notes Log

                                        Instead of having a scroll in tenant notes, add a Notes log to be able to date and time track all notes entered instead of hand entering

                                        • 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
