  2. Tenant Ledger Report to include option to run "0000 Charge" report.

    Currently the Category ledger only pulls paid charges (income) not posted charges. I would like the ability to have the Tenant Category Ledger be sorted by unit number or name. Currently it is only by name and that makes accounting difficult. Unless you can make this report an Excel export in which case I can sort on my own provided the unit number is a field in the report.

  3. Deleting notes

    I would love to be able to delete notes and history entries. I made a few mistakes in my initial set up and would like to clean things up.

  4. Archive accounts

    I would like to see the ability to Archive accounts, much the same way property and tenants currently work.

  5. Include a method to print all invoices all at once in order to mail

    I currently have to print every invoice manually by going to every tenants profile. This is getting annoying and time consuming. Honestly is making look for other programs. Other than this minor issue, I love rentec. Ive been using it for 2 years.

    Have you tried sending a statement instead? The format is nearly identical, and there is an option (Reports / Rentec-HOA Reports), All Statements. It will print off all the statements for the chosen properties. It’s a huge time saver, and maybe exactly what you are looking for.

  6. Include a mileage tracker.

    Include a mileage tracker for tracking automobile usage for maintaining property.

  7. More cash register like

    Enter data but not edit data.
    Just like in retail, I'd like my Leasing Agents to be able to enter data, but if they want to 'change anything', they need a supervisor to 'override'. Also, they shouldn't be able to change old data without supervisor approval.

    I still fear an unhappy employee could destroy all of my data if they chose to.

  8. Reports

    I have a couple suggestions regarding reports.
    1. Reports that can be scheduled: Imagine if I could schedule a daily report, or weekly, or monthly report that would automatically run and email me the results.
    2. Reports with relative date ranges: last day, week, month, year.
    3. Alerts: Thresholds for delinquent tenants (individually or collectively) would result in an email or text alert.

  9. Allow single expense to be split across all units without designating each unit individually.

    Allow an expense to be split across all units easier. Currently clicking on every unit to create a split expense is quite annoying. simply have an optionto apply the split to all sub-units of a property.

  10. Allow tenant/owner to be designated on split expenses.

    Allow the tenant/owner of a unit to be designated when making a split expense so we don't have to manualy apply their owner to the transaction after it is generated.

    For example: I had our building's water heater replaced and needed to distribute the cost of $98.25 between 12 units. To do this, I had to create the split expense, then create an expense for each owner ledger. I now realize I could have simply made the split expense, then gone into each expense and added the "owner" to the account that got charged, but adding another drop down to…

  11. Property & Owner Reserves Report

    Be able to pull a report that indicates the established reserve amount for each property - possibly as an added column in the Financial Report "Summary By Property." Also be able to have reserves hit this report by owner.

  12. Allow to disable "unread applications" showing up on the first page. its disturbing that i have to open application in order to remove them.

    Every option on Notices page should be optional. Especially unread applications. I need them when property ready to be shown not every day when i open software. I asked multiple times to add ability for customer to disable viewing in on notice page. can u finally do it. it ridiculous that i have to pretend im reading them in order to remove form notice page. thnks

  13. White Label - remove title of "Rentec Direct - Property Management Software"

    I ask that you might have either a generic statement like "property description" or actually the specific property name as page title. I understand you want to advertise, but when I send the like to specific people or sites like facebook, all they see it a link to "Rentec Direct - Property Management Software". They think I am advertising your software and not my property, so they do not click on the link. This very much defeats why I set up the property listing website. I am including the link so you can see the page (tab) title for yourself.

    Hello Tyson and other supporters of this idea. We’ve looked at both the listing pages and the individual detail pages. The listing pages list in the page title “Your Company Name | City, State | Rental Listings”. The detailed listing pages show “Property Address, City, State, Zip is For Rent”. I didn’t see anything that listed our company name on the listings pages. Is there another page maybe you are referencing?

  16. Utilities

    Utilities-Currently I have a master metered account with my utility company where I bill my tenants for electricity. I made a spreadsheet in excel where the charges are created, then I have post them as charges for each tenant which is time consuming. It would be nice if there was a spreadsheet format specifically for utilities where there was an option for charging tenants after they were created. Just a thought.

  17. Window Envelope for Statement

    I appreciate normal sized statements fit into a window envelope, however when there are too many transactions... Well, I bet you know what happens - the address gets cut off, moves to two pages, etc.

    Please consider consider making the "top " part of the statement the "remit" to portion that shows thru the window envelope. Then you don't care about the variable length of the statement !

  18. have an option to designate Units as "Leased" or "Available".

    I would love to see a button in the Marketing Info that would allow units to be seen as "Leased" or "Available" This way potential tenants directed to my available units can see pics and prices for all my units. I have found this is good for local credibility.

  19. Reports

    When choosing date ranges, I would like to be able to run a report for 'TODAY'. This is a very common date range for me and I'd sure like to be able to just click on 'Today' rather than having to enter dates manually. Thanks!

  20. Aggregate daily late fees

    If a daily late fee is setup, the system will create a daily charge in the amount of the daily late fee. It would be great to have an option to aggregate all the late fee charges into a single late fee invoice that is only a single ledger item on the tenant's statement.
