  1. Apply ACH Disbursements To Property Ledger

    OWNER DISBURSEMENT: When ACH-ing funds to an owner, if a property is selected, it will apply the expense to the property ledger, but not to the expense account associated with the property. This currently has to be done manually. Would be best if it happened automatically,especially for those who have lots and lots of owners they ACH to each month..

    Thank you for the feedback, we currently put an alert on the summary page whenever you (or any sub-users) login and there is a new feature. It will show up at the top of the notification stating “We’ve added X new features or improvements since your last login. Learn more.”. The learn more text is a link to the details of those improvements.

    I could see in the future the possibility of also sending these via email to an opt-in list if this becomes a popular request.

  5. Alternate owner statement - to look like operating statement

    OWNER STATEMENT: prefer the tenant statement style as it fits in a window envelope and looks "tighter" - would like the report to have a similar look as the Operating statement - offering their various property names on the left, the categories in columns and total on the right margin - easy to glance at.

  16. Financial Reporting needs an update

    Financial reporting needs an update. Should be easy to do. I am amazed CICTotal has made it this far with the current reports. The go to financial statement needs to be the Profit & Loss Statement. Change the name and title of the current "Income/Expense Report" to be "Profit & Loss Statement" Not sure if the current name choice was an attempt to avoid responsibility for producing inaccurate financial statements or what, but it is definitely curious. I would be reluctant to show the current statements to a client or partner. Currently I am exporting to excel to change the…

  18. Have a function to show a list of all open workorders by vendor

    I would like to be able to create a list by vendor - to show all open workorders, closed workorders that a vendor has been assigned/completed via a report, or be able to sort the workorders by vendors the workorders are assigned to on the workorder page. Currently, we are only able to sort by date, priority and WO number on the workorder page. Please add the option to sort by 'Assigned' to.

  19. Tenants getting email notification when the Building manager or landlord has a question about the repair request.

    good ! I wanted to request a key feature that many of my tenants have requested! I also agree with. I have already put in the request thru you systems months ago. We wanted a notification link sent to the tenants when us the landlords ask a question about their repair request. I know that they an check in BUT they often don't. So for example I will get a request " Main door does not lock" I will ask " which door in the unit ?" I wish they would get a notification that a new entry has been…

  20. Make it where we can set Fields on docusign

    When i used Buildium they had Adobe Echosign and you were able set the fields where the tenant signs and if they had to check mark something or input something you could set that field as well. I noticed on docusign on Rentec you cant set any fields for the signatures, which results in the tenants signature NOT being in the right place.PLEASE make it where we can set fields, when i go to the docusign site it appears that they have it where you set fields but i cant do it because it is set up through rentec.
