Try the new RentHQ Windows 10 App

Posted on June 21, 2016
The all new RentHQ Windows 10 app is now available! This means for anyone running Windows 10, you can run RentHQ without using your browser, and without using Silverlight.  Your data is still stored in the same place, and most things still look and behave the same as always. The main difference between the browser based Silverlight version, and the new Windows 10 version are as follows.
  • The mail merge facility looks a bit different.  The format of your letters may also be slightly different.
  • Sending emails via Outlook may behave differently, asking you which application you want to use to send emails.
  • Taking photos via the web cam on the PC will also look different.
The differences you see will be mainly cosmetic.  The basic behavior is all still the same. For those people who don't have Windows 10, and even those who do, you can continue to use the browser based version.  You can also switch backwards and forwards between the different versions.  For now and in the foreseeable future both versions will continue to be maintained and where possible will get the same enhancements. To install the Windows 10 version
  1. Open the Windows start menu and type Store<enter> to open the Windows store.
  2. Enter RentHQ into the search box  at the top of the store window.
  3. Choose to install the App.  There is no additional cost to install this app.  This is included in your normal RentHQ subscription.
Let me know what you think.  It is very new, so let me know if you find any issues.
