                      We’ve considered this feature many times; however, the use case we’ve discovered is tremendously low. While this feature is technically possible, and seems pretty cool, we’ve seen other solutions deploy vendor payments by ACH and the vendors simply prefer a check or credit card payment because “that’s what they know”. The number of vendors who will sign into the system to accept or reconcile their payments is very few.

                      If anybody has experience otherwise or feels this feature would get quite a bit of usage if developed, please add your comments and votes here so we can better understand the value in developing this feature.

                                • Disburse funds to owners who own multiple properties

                                  OWNER DISBURSEMENT: easier way to disburse funds for owners with multiple properties without having to head into each one, view the balance, and post to each property ledger. Post split transaction to the owner's ledger? Option to "zero out" the rolling balance on all properties and class to 8900 category with a check-box next to the rolling balance total - save on time, especially w/ lots of SFHs.

                                      • 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.
