New Feature - Record notes via your mobile

Posted on January 29, 2014

You can now record notes against either a tenant, a property or an owner via your mobile phone or tablet.  These notes will get uploaded and added as notes available on the main software program.  This is great for those people who are out and about and want to record the results of a meeting or discussion.

There is a new Android application available from the android store.  For other mobile users like iphone or ipad users, you have an updated web page available.  In both cases, a new Add Note button has been added to the notes section on the tenant, owner and property details screens.

The windows phone app has not yet been updated.  If there is sufficient demand, it may also get updated in future.

New Features - multiple

Posted on January 26, 2014

After an interesting training session with a customer, a number of small changes have been made to RentHQ.

  • You can now choose to print the inspection date on the mail merge letter, without the time.  You can still choose to print inspection date and time if required.
  • If you choose to generate a mail merge letter with an inspection date or time in it, a message will be shown telling you that these types of letters can not be generated the usual way, but instead need to be generated from the inspection details screen itself.
  • The demo of the tenant and landlord logins can now be configured to show your company logo and company name, instead of the demo company name and logo.  This means if you want to promote the software from your web site, you can show the demo login to your clients, but still show your logo.  You might need your web designer to help you with this one.  What you need to do is add &pr=[YourCompanyName] to the web page URL.
    • For the landlord login use[YourCompanyName]
    • For the tenant login use[YourCompanyName]

New Feature - More information on the dashboard

Posted on January 15, 2014

The dashboard screen has been enhanced with additional information.

It now shows all open work orders.  This is any work order where the status is not 'Closed'.  You can click on any of these work orders to go directly to the detail screen for that work order.

The dashboard now also shows coming inspections.  This means any inspection due in the next 7 days.

Hopefully this makes the dashboard screen even more useful that before.

New Feature - Custom fields on owner mail merge

Posted on January 12, 2014

When creating tenant mail merge letters, you have always had the ability to add custom fields to those letters.  You can now also do this with owner mail merge letters.

New Feature - less clutter on the dashboard

Posted on January 12, 2014

The dashboard screen has had a small change made to it.  Any items panel on the right hand side which is empty, will now be hidden completely.  This means that those that have got useful content will occupy more space.  This also leaves more space for the addition of other useful items to come.
