  1. Allow the "Owner Disbursement" Category to be an "Other" rather than "Expense"

    The problem I am trying to solve, is that Owner Disbursements show up in the P&L reports. Owner Disbursements and Owner Contributions are not Income or Expenses. They shouldn't show up in P&L reports.

      Hi Robert, that’s a great suggestion. What you can do today is visit Settings, Categories and setup another Owner Disbursement category (name it anything you wish), and set it as type Other. Then use that for your owner disbursements and it should do exactly as you are wanting.

    • Vendor Ledger - select multiple vendors

      "Vendor Ledger": Would be great select multiple vendors, all expenses sorted by vendor in one report only.

      • I need sub-categories for expenses!

        Suggest availability to add subcategories to any main category. Such as under the category "Repair", a person could add subcategories like "appliances", "electrical", "plumbing", etc. This would allow user to see individual detail totals in subcategories and a main overall total for the category.

          • Exporting Data

            Would like an easier way to export all data entered into Rentec. Currently, the data that can be downloaded is restricted to ledger transactions and has to be done in each individual ledger. A zipped file of all transactions as well as downloading any notes/history and file library documents would be very helpful.

            • Allow Owners To Send PM money through portal with merchant account

              Owners to be able to send money to the property manager's bank account through the owner portal, just as tenant's can. This is especially helpful for turnover expenses or other cash infusions, and a quick tool for international clients or those who like to automate the process.

              • Bank Reconcile - display last reconciled balance

                It would be helpful to display the last reconciled balance on the bank account reconciliation report tool to easily tell if your last reconciliation was off when you start a new one.

                • "Attach Forms/Statements to Tenant's File Library" without having to download & re-upload it!

                  1) A simple "Attach Form/Statement to Tentant's File Library button" feature added next to the "print, email, download PDF features" would be awesome! It's time consuming to download say 20 delinquent notices, then re-upload them individually to their file library. How useful it would be to have a button right next to print, email, download pdf, that allows you to attach this right to their file library.

                  2) ALSO - when you create 20 statements all at once for delinquent accounts they download as PDFs all in one bulk file - which is great for printing - but to save…

                    • 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…

                      • Create an "All Accounts" report function, not just "All Properties"

                        It is impossible to run vendor or category reports across all accounts, which poses a big problem since some vendors are paid out of various accounts, not only across various properties. Also related: transactions related to archived properties don't show up in reports for "All Properties" and they should.

                          • Credit Card fees to Tenant instead of Property

                            I think when the tenants pay the credit card convenience fee it should not go to the property tab, but to the tenants tab only. In my opinion, it is not income to the property, but to the managment company and a corresponding expense should be posted to the tenants tab to offset the fee income.

                            I am doing all these manually right now, but would like to see Rentec automatically post to tenants only and perhaps add the corresponding expense automatically. It sure would save me a ton of time changing all those credit card payments.
                            If anyone at…

                                    The sub-units have a continuous rolling balance would like to see it either smaller or not on the summary screen since we pay out from the master unit level. It is confusing to see their rolling balances every month on the property ledger screen

                                    • email templates

                                      More database fields (like address etc)

                                      More functionality in the template creator (like the form creator has... view source, tools, insert etc)

                                      Now off to figure out how to delete the stupid "test" form and email template I made...

                                        • Be able to go from tenant info screen to add notes in drop down

                                          I often need to look up tenant contact info, and then want to document what was discussed immediately while on the phone with them. It would be nice if I wouldn't have to go back out to tenants, scroll back to their name(which is another issue), and then add a note or reminder.
