    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.

  5. Multiple owners for each property

  6. Appliances/Equipment

    Would like to see away to add your applinces and equipment for your properties list. IE you can have a picture of your stove and save the make, model, S/N, Build date, date installed and Warranty info. So when the tenants calls or e-mails you a problem you have everything in this program vs digging up this information. this also could link with your Work request and vendor. So when a Tenant does the work order part that can pull form a drop down of appliances or equipment that has the issue along with just typing what the issue is…

  15. Option to print or export Notes/History to a PDF

    Being able to export the notes to a PDF is extremely helpful in property management because at anytime these notes may need to be referenced. Being able to export the notes would save time and work for the users of Rentec, as it stands now we have to do double the work to ensure every file is documented properly.

  17. allow tenant portal access for grouped tenants co-renters

    when tenants are grouped together on a property, there isn't an option to setup a tenant portal, like there is on individual tenants.

    If tenants that share a property are kept separate, then a portal is available ... however, this option does not work for me because I do not know how much of the rent each tenant is paying each month.

  18. Share Files to Multiple Owners or Tenants

    Allow an "alt" multiple share feature in the file library so that one invoice can be shared with multiple owners. Example: A yard care invoice that charges ~20 different properties/accounts. Instead of uploading the same invoice 20 times and then sharing with each owner individually, allow one uploaded invoice to be shared with as many owners as required.

    Thank you for the excellent suggestion. The Rentec development team feels this is something that can be accomplished. If this feature is important to you please vote it up to increase it’s priority in our development queue.

  19. Add Return Check Feature

    I have a tenant that bounces a check and there is no easy way to document the bounced check. A return of deposited item fee and then have the system automatically calculate the late fee since the bounced check.

  20. Indicate on deposits made to my bank from rental payments, which tenant the payment came from

    Currently, my bank account shows rent deposits as "Forte". In order to reconcile my books each month, my bookkeeper needs to know which deposits came from which tenants. Can you do something, so the deposit indicates which tenant the money is from?
