Rentec Direct

Take a look at what we’re currently working on at Rentec. Please share your ideas and stories to help us build a product that best fits your needs.

How can we make the Rentec Direct property management software and tenant screening platform better?

  1. Tenant Portal - disable EasyPay tab for some/all

    Rentec Direct client finds that some of her tenants are disabling Easypay or changing it incorrectly. She would like to be able to restrict the payment scheduling to office staff only with some or all of her tenants and have that tab removed from their portal. Right now if you provide access to the tenant's portal and they have EasyPay, they have access to the EasyPay tab.

  5. Reorder LINKS section at bottom of home page

    In the LINKS section at the bottom of the home page, put Tenant Screening next to Applications. They are logically similar, so put them next to each other.

  11. UNPAID EXPENSES link to Undeposited funds

    Add in Undeposited Funds Acc a
    "Print a check" button also,
    This would be handy to be able to use this account as:
    UNDEPOSITED FUNDS or
    UNPAID EXPENSES
    With this option we could consolidate small expenses applied for a single vendor in several WORKORDERs-(Apply expense to propery), send the expenses to UNPAID, and when its time to pay them, cut the check for sum of all
    this is different workorders, diferrent properties, SAME vendor.

  13. Make it where we can set Fields on docusign

    When i used Buildium they had Adobe Echosign and you were able set the fields where the tenant signs and if they had to check mark something or input something you could set that field as well. I noticed on docusign on Rentec you cant set any fields for the signatures, which results in the tenants signature NOT being in the right place.PLEASE make it where we can set fields, when i go to the docusign site it appears that they have it where you set fields but i cant do it because it is set up through rentec.

  14. Set % for Placement Fees

    Set % for placement fees based off of 1st month's rent instead of having a set amount. This would be helpful since most PMC's charge a % for placement fees based off of 1st month's rent but 1st month's rent can change.

    “Portfolios” are a term used in some property based applications for lumping a group of properties for reporting or management purposes. Rentec already has this existing functionality, only instead of grouping into “portfolios”, properties are grouped to “owners”.

    To use this, visit the Accounts tab, and Add an Owner. Then edit the properties you wish to be grouped, and assign them to this owner.

    To report on an owner, select the owner name within the Account drop-down in any of the report areas.

    You can also group properties by property manager. If you add a property manager (Settings, Manage User Accounts), then edit the properties and specify the appropriate property manager. Depending on the settings specified, that property manager will only be able to run reports, view, and edit their assigned properties.

    If you have a specific use case where the existing functionality does not meet your needs, we…

  17. Property Reminders Sent to have Property Address included

    Property Tab/Setting Reminder/ Texting Out to Assistants/Self

    In creating a reminder via the property tab, The user can see the address of the property.
    However, when the reminder is actually sent to anyone, the user included.
    The address is not listed with the sent property reminder.
    Unless they know all the details of the property, the recipient does not know how to proceed.
    Currently, I manually type in each address for each property reminder.

    ( I did not test this via the email, I presume it could be the same challenge)

    Thank you!
