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. Option to Suppress Main Unit Address when Posting to Syndication for Sub Units

    Add an option to suppress main unit description/address when showing sub units. For instance, if you own a building that is three townhomes, 100-104 Main Street with sub units 100 Main Street, 102 Main Street, 104 Main Street, then when publishing 100 Main Street to apartments.com, I want the description to be "100 Main Street", not "100-104 Main Street, 100 Main Street". I do not want to make these separate main units because they share a roof, sidewalks, lawn maintenance, etc which should go to the main unit that represents the entire building.

  3. Hiding or removing Net Income from sub userss

    Good Afternoon,

    I called today and was surprised to find out I can not take down or hide " The Net Income Summary" from my subusers. This is disappointing as I do not wish for them to know my net income.It would be great if your company offered this.. as this not being an option makes me uneasy.

    Thank you,
    Brandi Williamson

  5. Late fee charge

    The North Carolina Board of Realtors does not allow us to charge a late fee on the entire balance owed. We can only charge a late fee against the rent due for that month, not previous balances or any other charges. Rentec does not have an option to do this. It should.

  6. 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!

  7. Add attachment icon to each Bank Sync transaction tab

    Suggestion - It would be nice to be able to attach invoices while doing the bank sync. Currently I have to do this under the accounts tap separately.

  8. Millage tracking for business

    Have a line when entering in an receipt or invoice to allow us to put millage with the entry. If we have to go to the property for inspections then there is Millage associated with that. (for better "one stop shop" for taxes at end of year!!)

  9. pdf of workorder on notification email

    Include PDF of workorder with notification email (that tenant has submitted workorder) comes through. This would enable me to forward it to contractors directly instead of logging in to Rentec to send.

  11. Rent Increases

    Is there a way to add upcoming rent increases to the enhanced rent roll? Is there any report that will show this? It would be really great to show upcoming increases on the summary page.

  12. 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.

  13. 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...

  14. 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.

  15. Invoices

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

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Application Fees

    Would be great if I could turn off the option to post application fees to the property, yet still be able to run a report at the end of my monthly billing cycle to see the amount of application fees collected between custom dates (in order to account for that income monthly).
