  2. Text notification

    I would like to see if we can get notifications on our phones if somebody has texted you on the system. As it is set up now if a tenant or owner contacts you threw the system by text it does not notify you. So sometimes text sit there for some time.

  4. multiple units rolling balances

    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

  5. Security Deposit Return Reminder

    We need help staying organized with security deposit returns. It would be great if the day a tenant is "moved-out" in the system, that it could generate a Reminder on the summary screen that says "this tenant moved-out on March 31, 2018 - send out security deposit". THANKS!

  7. 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.

    Thank you for the excellent suggestion. The Rentec development team feels this is something that can be accomplished. If this feature is important to you please vote it up to increase it’s priority in our development queue.

  8. Include all co-renters for e-mails, workorders and viewing charges and payments

    There are 4 existing requests that are similar enough that they should be consolidated into one request. The title lines are:

    Allow tenants created as co-renters to see the charges and payments
    Group Emails - please include co-renters
    Automated Emails - please include co-renters
    Multiple tenant contacts on workorders

    As noted in one of the above suggestions, when a property has co-tenants, they are usually considered as equals in all respects and the program should not treat them differently. So, for all interactions that Rentec has with co-tenants (group mails, automated mails, access to payment info and history, workorder contacts,…

  9. 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.

  10. Owner Memo Line Reports

    I am suggesting that Rentec allow owners on their portals to see the memo line of a specific charge. If anything, at least give us the option per line item if we want the memo line seen for our owners. It would save me much time every month.

    Thank you.

  11. Accounting assets and liabilities

    It would be very helpful to be able to track assets and liabilities. This is the only thing missing from your software that would allow me to do a complete accounting of my businesses. Please consider implementing. Thank you!

  12. Window Envelope for Statement

    I appreciate normal sized statements fit into a window envelope, however when there are too many transactions... Well, I bet you know what happens - the address gets cut off, moves to two pages, etc.

    Please consider consider making the "top " part of the statement the "remit" to portion that shows thru the window envelope. Then you don't care about the variable length of the statement !

  14. Cleared status on reconciled items.

    We like to keep all of our records completely up to date. With that we reconcile our account daily. I think it would be beneficial and less time consuming, when mid-month reconciling, when I checkmark any item that it would show cleared status automatically instead of me having to go into each separate transaction and put it as cleared status myself.

  15. voided checks

    when printing out a check (from any account) there is a drop down menu for - "un-cleared, cleared & to reconcile, etc.) it would be nice to have a title"voided or void" and have it automatically void that number check in the specific chosen account so it doesn't have to be added manually.

  16. 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…

  18. Allow for rent to be prorated for last month

    I have tenants who near a university who move out either in the middle of May or the middle of August. It would be nice if the software could look at their lease expiration date/move out date and calculate a prorated rent for the last month rather than require it to be manually added.
