  3. Allow location setting for all convenience fees

    Online payment Convenience Fees post to the property, so each month I need to move those transactions to our "Property Management" property. Since we pay the bank fees and don't want the fee income to be sent to owners.
    If there was a way to set a default property for all convenience fees, that would be great! Donna

  7. Owner Notifications

    Owner notification when a Dispersement has been sent. Making it one of the templates.

    We have 4 Tenant email notifications, but none for owners and they are the clients we need to keep happy.

  8. Automatically Share Uploaded Files

    When you upload a file for a renter, automatically be able to click a button to share to all co-renters tied to that renter AND automatically share it to that renters tenant portal.

    I just uploaded a contract and a guarantor agreement for 5 co-renters and it took 22 MB of space, that has to be killing storage on Rentec side, plus its a pain to fix on my side and that's only on one house I have and most every house I have has multiple co-renters...

  9. Simplify Printing Landlord Statements

    Make it more user friendly to print and save landlord statements. Right now they have to be done 1 at a time. I would like to be able to Print all landlords at one time and all get their very own statement. Maybe even be able to email each statement to the landlords directly through Rentec Direct.

  10. Invoices

    Make invoices look like what they appear on the screen. Many tenants do not understand the generated invoices that are off of rentec.

  11. Notification when text is received

    It would be immensely helpful if some type of text or email notification could be received on our cell when a Rentec text came in. Right now, there is no way of knowing that a tenant sent a text unless the Owner/manager logs into Rentec. Or if our own cell number could be used for texting. I would be willing to pay extra for this service. I am presently missing important messages because this feature is not available.

  12. Be able to enter all applicants and link to apartments along with being able to attach documents including the screening results.

    I would like to link any applications I receive to the apartments while I am going through the screening process. It would also be great to link the screening results to the applicant and be able to make notes regarding the applicant and if they are approved or denied, along with a copy of the adverse action letter.

  14. Landlord Home Insurance Tracking

    Add ability to track Landlord insurance the same way we can track Renter's insurance. Our state requires the Landlord add us to their policy as additional insured and tracking in one system versus an external process would be great to ensure all Landlord's are in compliance.

  15. Accept security deposits online.

    I was asking about tenants paying their security deposits online. Support said that:

    "Our system is not designed for tenants to pay their security deposits online, it's designed to accept rent payments from tenants."

    So yes, they can pay money that is applied as additional rent and I can manually transfer it to the security deposit on the ledgers, but doesn't it make sense to just accept security deposits separately from the tenant portal?

    This seems like a no-brainer. Please implement this change!

  16. Additional Tenants on Approved application and lease

    When you start a lease for tenants that both tenants be on the lease NOT JUST ONE. I should NOT have to add the second tenant!!! Its should be done automatically. That goes for the same when you approve an application. If there are two people on the application and you approve it it should approve BOTH APPLICATIONS AND PUT BOTH PEOPLE INTO THE COMPUTER. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO ADD THE SECOND TENANTS INFO IN ORDER TO GET THEM INTO THE COMPUTER.

  17. 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.

  19. data field insert for docusign lease

    Add a data field in the forms area to INSERT "partial months rent" thats calculated by a tenants move-in date. Currently this cannot be done! It makes creating a "move in costs" section of a lease (or move-in letter with a itemized costs" breakdown very laborious and error prone. Your application calculates partial month or pro-rated rent, getting that information into a document (lease or otherwise) would be huge. The competitive apps can do it!

  20. Remove underlining from data fields in Forms

    Using data fields to craft a form letter that can be easily emailed to a tenant is really slick. However, the result is a piece of correspondence that has every merged field underlined. If you've created a letter from scratch - Date field, Tenant Name, address, greeting...some body text and signature line, ALL are underlined, while the rest of the letter is not. It looks REALLY unprofessional. Please fix this issue.
