    • Selection for "None" in "Choose Property" report field

      On the financial reports tab, in the "Choose Property" dropdown, I would like a way to choose property "None". This is extremely useful because, invariably, at the end of the year, there are always some transactions that did not get assigned to a property and are not accounted for. Currently it is very difficult to search for and find these transactions so they can be fixed and assigned to a property (I would have to use "Category Ledger" and export to excel). If I am unable to find the transactions, they will affect my totals for the various categories for…

        • 4000 Income to calculate onto 1099

          Please include a button in the settings menu on setting up accounts to allow any 4000 series income account to be auto tabulated into the 1099 assistant. We have 4001 to account for Section 8 and are manually having to complete 1099's for owners. this is adding additional costs and time to tax prep.
          Thanks

              • You have a great report for property performance, but you only give two options: 1 property or all properties. I would like to run one owner

                You have a great report for property performance, but you only give two options: 1 property or all properties. I would like to run one owner who has 20+ properties. I would like to run them together with this report, but not all we manage. Can you make it possible to choose multiple properties by the same owner but not all the properties?

                    • Create a P&L or Income/Expense For All Properties In One Report

                      I own many properties, I need a P&L (income/Expense, Operating Report) that includes EACH property, but lists each property in its own column . So, income and expense categories down the left side and then EACH property has a column with the appropriate data. Right now the only way to get this information (according to RenTec Help Desk) is to print out this report for EACH property individually. That is helpful, but if I want to see how my business is doing as a whole I need ALL the data on the same report.

                        • Posting Periods

                          There needs to be posting periods. I want to be able to pay my owners in February but it actually posts in January period. The way it is now I have to change the date on the disbursement to match that month and it makes it much harder to reconcile and at the end of the year.

                              • Stop late charges

                                I stop late charges after the tenant has at least paid their rent, the program continues to charge late charges as long as there is an amount due. i have to physically delete the excess late charges. I would recommend changing the software to not incur any more late charges after one has been deleted until the next month rental cycle.

                                    • Tenant report showing total rent paid for past yeaar

                                      I would like the ability to to run an end of year report for each tenant showing amounts they have paid for rent. I have many tenants that need this for a tax credit. Currently I can run a statement but it doesn't show the total amount of received for rent. Also this report ideally would show how much received from Government assistance and tenant totals.

                                      • Allow Move in fees rather than deposits

                                        Allow additional fees on move in screen, Pet fee, move in fee. We don't do a deposit we do non refundable move in fee that we have to manually enter.
