  4. CAM charges to post prior to due date

    It would be helpful to be able to set the day that cam charges would appear in a tenant's ledge/portal, or have them linked in on the same day that rent charges populate. Currently, CAM charges will only post on the actual due date, like a standard recurring charge. Printing out invoices in advance, or directing tenants to their portal ledger is not helpful as tenants will not see those CAM charges early.

  5. Dynamically Adjust Occupancy Rate Graph in the Summary

    Every time the new unit added, Occupancy Rate drops in the previous months like that unit was vacant. New units should not change occupancy rate in the past.

  6. Home Improvements Page

    Hello,
    I love the site and have multiple properties to manage. Your site is a great tool and I appreciate the service you provide.

    I would like to suggest that you please add a feature that many property owners like myself would find very useful. I would like to see under the properties menu a new screen that would allow me to input data such as dates that the main systems of the house were replaced. Such as the roof, HVAC, carpet, windows, paint (exterior and interior), and appliances. In addition it would be nice to have drop down options…

  7. multiple tenant emails

    Allow for spouse or other tenant's email address also so that when we send out emails, it would go to all tenants in the unit.

  8. ADD biweekly (every two weeks) ACH payment option

    This will help the tenants that can only pay when they get their paycheck every two weeks.

  10. Recurring SPLIT transactions

    Please allow the opportunity to create recurring split transactions that allow me to post a monthly payment to multiple properties. I have consolidated my loans so I make one mortgage payment that applies to 3 properties. Presently, there is no way to set this up as a recurring payment. THANK YOU!!!!

  11. Allow manager to define which charges apply to the late fee

    When setting up charges for a tenant, allow an option to have this charge apply to late fees or not. For example, the monthly rent charge if left unpaid would impose a late fee; however, a utility bill added as a charge to a tenant may not. The system should then only charge a late fee based on an overdue status of the selected charges.

  12. Enhance The Deposit Ticket Option

    Bank deposit slips are not being accepted by banks because they are not an item that they can scan. They need the proper coding.

  13. Automatically scroll back down

    I hate when I go into any property or tenant to edit it, that when am done it brings me back to the top of the page. I would like for it to go back to where I was, so I don't have to keep scrolling back done to where I was, just to start over again after editing another one.

  15. Notification when SMS or message is in my Inbox

    I do not login to Rentec every day or even every few days. But I have renters that have my Rentec SMS phone number and use that to communicate with me sometimes.

    The problem is that I do not know when they have sent me a SMS to my Rentec number.

  16. Mortgage Tracking

    Hi, as this is a Property Management platform,
    I'm sure many of your clients own some of the properties and would like to track their mortgage. I would suggest to update the software to be able to track mortgages.
    Thanks

  17. Create default settings for HOA properties within Rentec PM

    As a PM who manages HOA's and traditional multi-family housing, the ability to set the default billing and income categories for monthly dues at the property level is critical. The owners who are paying their dues are confused by the term "tenant" and "rent charges" and the income category defaulting to a rent category is incorrect and changing it each month during collections is tedious.

  18. 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.
