Tenant Payments Applied To Specific Charges
In some states, tenant payments have to be applied to specific charges rather than to a rolling balance. For example, if a tenant pays for a partial pay for a utility bill, that payment must be applied to the charge they say they are paying for and not other balances and the tenant statement must reflect the balance for various charges.

Our tenants are charged a fee for electricity. When their payments come in we post a split payment showing the portion of the payment that applies towards rent, and the portion that applies towards their electric bill. This request is to automate this process so the total amount of the payment can be posted and the program automatically applies the rent amount towards rent then the remaining balance is applied towards the electric charge. The idea would be to default the rent amount towards rent, then the remainder towards other charges, which could be prioritized as the total amount "trickles down" the list.
