  2. Track owner held deposits

    Owner held deposits: There should be a way for property managers and tenants to see via the portal how much security deposit is being held by the owner.

  3. bug fix request

    Bug fix request. Security access is bypassed from the "Quick Start: How to Print Checks" and using the "1 SETUP" and "Click Here". I've attached a screen shot. Allows user to make any changes. After saving, returns to Settings, with the option unavailable. Discovered this when logged in as a new user and testing. Thank you.

  5. 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.

  8. Delinquency vs Possible rent report

    A report showing the rent received vs. the occupancy rate would be very helpful. This would be something that calculates the delinquency vs. possible income. This is a report that the owners like to see.

  10. Change account viability back to the way it was

    You have recently made the sub account numbers un-accessible to the users. I'm not sure what the purpose of hiding the information we use every day from the people who use it. I was told it's for security. Perhaps for some users this could be a concern, however it's a very big detriment for us. We use that information every day. Now I have to maintain a separate database just for account numbers. Even if someone were to hack the system, the information we put in would be useless to them since they are sub-accounts. Perhaps the visibility of the…

  13. 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).

  15. HOA reoccuring monthly charge

    When managing an HOA there is no method for charging a homeowner automatic reoccurring HOA dues. Could we add a category for this (like Rent) under Tenants, Accounting Defaults under Rent for HOA charges.

  16. Add Property Name to the Completed EasyPay report

    I use the Completed EasyPay report a lot to track along Forte deposits made to our bank.
    It would be extremely helpful if along with Tenant Name we could also have the Property Name associated with that tenant's corresponding payment.

  17. Group messaging

    Would like to have the ability to be able to message all tenants on lease throughout their tenancy on management matters. The current system only allows us to do this on lease signing or if there are multiple units in a property. However, if there are multiple tenants one one lease and I want to make sure they both get emailed about a certain item, it doesn't allow me to 'group' them together for that property so that I can message them as a group. This is something we find important when it comes time to stand in front of…

    Can we add more than one attachment to a bill payment? Sometimes I combine invoices into one payment but can only attach one of the invoices. Thank you.
