      • Allow creation of a report for "not in any category/property"

        There is no good way to find all transactions that have "None" for the category, property, tenant or bank. Sometimes "None" makes perfect sense but sometimes it is a typo when entering a transaction. Especially for category and property - having "None" here is often a mistake.

        The "Category Ledger" report should allow selecting "None" for the category to assist in finding these.

        The Expense, Income, and Exp/Inc reports should list income and expense items that don't have a category. Same thing with the Operating Statement reports.

        Not quite as important but still useful would be to allow selecting "None"…

        • Archived Properties on Reports

          When printing operating statements on the financial reports there should be an option to include Archived Properties.... the only way to get a accurate historical financial report is to 'un-archive' properties, run the report and then re-archive them. To say the least, this is a real pain. Please advise if this is possible or how soon we can have a change to make this possible. Thank you. Guthrie Chamberlain, Randy Bocook Homes LLC

          • Deposit Reports

            It would be VERY helpful to have the security deposit received dates on the reports so we can figure out how much in deposits we took in on what month.

              • Scheduled / Emailed Reports

                As a property owner, there is NO reason I should have to login to see some basic daily, weekly, or monthly numbers. I want to be able to set up a scheduled report that will automatically email me a report at defined times each month. The report should arrive as a PDF.

                  • ability to track security deposit amounts held by owner

                    when a security deposit is transferred to an owner to be held by the owner, I would like the ability to pull a report showing the total amounts of security deposits being held by each owner for each unit.

                    • reimbursable's to property owners accounts

                      when entering a reimbursement paid by the owner - let's say for a repair you did- when you enter it into the property account it goes in as a credit, (which it should) but when you do the end of the year statement for the owner it shows up as income to them - which it is not, and there is no way to alter the report to show it was money paid by the owner and if you back into the account and alter it, it throws off all of the figures which in turn messes up their tax…

                        • Inc/Exp Statement > break down the category balances into more detail

                          The Inc/Exp Statement report displays the total balance of each category. This request is to break down the category balances and show each transaction that makes up the total balance. We would like the report to continue to show the total balance for each category, but to also include all of the items that make up each total balance. This would be combining the information in the Account Ledger report with the information in the Inc/Expense Statement report.

                            On the Owner Statement reports, please detail the "other income" and break it down per category that same way that the Expenses are broken down per expense category.

                            • Reports for multiple properties but with totals for each property

                              Currently there are two options. 1) Report by "All" properties or 2) Each individual property. These are quite useful, however, if you have a lot of properties and you want the report broken down by each property then you have to select each property, run the report, save (or print) then manually select the next property.

                              What I want is to print reports for each property independently but all at once, not totaling the values across all properties.

                              This should work for all reports such as income/expense, Schedule-E, Ledgers, etc.

                              Let me know if this is not clear.

                              Thanks,
                              Keith…

                              • Make a Report that shows all charges for individual tenant

                                It would be very helpful for us if there where a report that had all charges broken down, like rent, taxes, pet rent, w/d rental, reserved parking all in one report than having to print individual tenants statement. If we had something that showed the rent frequency also would be great, ie: monthly, bi-weekly or weekly. Thank you

                                        • Need more reports

                                          We need to be able to generate a reports from Rentec. We MUST have a way to pull email addresses to send an email to all of our residents at once. We MUST have a way to pull a rent roll to include rent, parking, storage and pet fees, not just rent. We are currently generating in house spreadsheets that is VERY time consuming to obtain this information that should be easy enough to get from Rentec because the information is there but not accessible in a report format. PLEASE HELP!!!
