  4. Form ideas

    The forms editor is very frustrating to work with. I'd love to be able to upload a form and have it retain the docx or odt format while still being able to utilize your strings (%fullname% for example.)

    Also, please make "all names" show all names.

    Thanks!

  5. show owner company name when hovering over property

    When you hover over a property on the Properties tab, the pop up windows that displays the owner's contact information shows the owner's first and last name.

    This is a request to have that box display the owner's company name instead of their first and last.

  7. Create an option under "How many months of rolling balance for properties summary" to see rolling balance for the current tax year.

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to set the rolling balance that is shown under the properties tab to current tax year rather than just the last 12 months or last 6 months.

  12. Add Features - Flips/New Construction (investment-non rentals)

    Investment (non rental) Properties (like flips/new construction). It seems like if be very easily to implement a section for those that flip properties or do new construction. You have work orders/vendors on this program. One might have multiple investors/owners, track expenses/plan budgets/plan and assign tasks with due dates/etc.

  13. Enable/Disable ALL Application Fields

    Online Application field requirements- We would like to have the option to require all fields within the application in order to screen our applicants appropriately. Perhaps we can select a checkmark to activate this or select a dropdown similar to the enable/disable functions. Thanks!

  14. owner info in property info

    Please allow users to enter owner info in the property window. As it is now, the owner email , phone and name when you hover BUT there doesn't seem to be a way to change that information.
    We need to have Michael Hernandez email changed to info@realinvestments.com; we change it in the owner account but it doesn't reflect in the property info.

  15. Category report for ALL categories

    Category Reports for all categories - Today, the reports are only able to show categories for certain types of accounts (charges, i think). So even though the category list is displayed and you can select a category, the report shows nothing.

  16. Accounts tab > bank account ledger, transactions do not display unit #

    When viewing a bank account ledger on the Accounts tab, the transactions display the Payee, Category, and Memo, but the tenant's address for rental income is not displayed. This is a request to display the address with unit # on these transactions.

  17. Improve property perfomance reporting

    We would really like to have the ability to pull a property performance report for a property as a whole. Currently your system lists each individual unit and its performance even when you select the entire property, i.e. "Powell Apartments". A report that gives the overall performance of a multi-family property would be much easier to read and use efficiently. Overall this a great program and system that we want to grow with as you continue to improve it.

    Thanks,

    Matt Henderson, VPM

  18. It would be nice to have it appear on the summary page when someone pays ACH.

  19. update payee on individual management fees when using pay manager utility

    when using the pay property manager utility and assigning a payee for the transaction, I would like the program to automatically update the payee on all of the individual management fees also. This way when viewing the Account Ledger A report, the payee on the management would show rather than "- - - ".

  20. Property Manager info.

    We get many calls each day from potential tenants asking if a particular house is still for rent or not. There is no easy way for us to figure out who the property manager is. It would very beneficial for us to be able to quickly glance at the property and find out which manager is in charge of it.
