Version 1.2.2 has a few minor improvements.

In version 1.2.1 there have been many improvements and refinements to the software. Some of these include the ability to mark a tenant as vacated or a unit record as vacant. If the move in date and the rent due dates are not the same (i.e., the tenant moves into a unit in the middle of the month) the first month's rent is prorated and you have the option of adding the next months rent to the first invoice. Another slight change is when tenant records are imported, the old information is updated with the new information, so more than one person can generate rent receipts.


Version 1.2 includes the ability to specify the rental period as weekly, monthly or for several months. Now those of you who have weekly vacation rentals or rent on a semiannual basis can use Rental Tracker Plus too. Users can choose between the different rental periods by clicking the Rent Due On field in Tenant Tracker (see illustration below).

Also if the first rental period is less than the full term (i.e., rent is due on the first, but the Move In date is the tenth) a partial first months rent will be calculated. If the first rental period is less than 20 days then the program will also ask if you want to add a second months rent to the first receipt. This new capability will make calculation of the first rental receipt much easier.


Changes to version 1.1 of Rental Tracker Plus included:

Many changes have been made to the Tenant Tracker component of Rental Tracker Plus. Instead of one name field, there are now First Name and Last Name fields. Tenant names are now listed in the Lastname, Firstname format in the Tenant fields in Unit Tracker and Income Tracker.

Instead of one phone field, there are now Home Phone, Work Phone and Other Phones fields.

To accommodate more information on the Tenant Tracker record, 4 new tab buttons have been added. These allow the display of Dates/Charges, Personal Info, Payments and Notes.

The Dates/Charges tab has a new field called Lease Length where you can enter either the length of the lease or MTM (indicating a month to month rental). There is no longer an Other Charges field (which previously only displayed the total of the Other Recurring Charges) but functionally no changes have been made.

The Personal Info tab button displays the following information about your tenant: SS# or Tax ID #, Auto License #, Other Phones, Primary Employer, Position (or job title), Email Address and any Other Employer.

The Payments tab displays payments (each time the Create Receipt button is clicked in Rental Income Tracker, a new line is inserted in this field indicating the date, amount and the month the rent was for). Two new buttons include Create Payment Record and Rent History Report.

Rental Tracker Plus is now capable of reporting your tenant's payment history to Rent History, Inc. which is a Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA) created specifically to serve the needs of Residential Rental Property Owners and Managers. They gather the information that landlords need the most and make it available in an easy to read format, all at a reasonable cost. See www.renthistory.com for more information.

The Rent History Report button will generate export files that you can send to RentHistory.com who then will be able to report payment information to subsequent landlords.

The Notes tab displays a field where you can keep any notes about the tenant.

Click the Late Notice button to create a notice (which you can customize for your own particular needs) to send to delinquent renters. Use the Tenant Notice button to generate one or more notices of a more general nature to your tenants. These notices can be personalized and saved for future use.

New report options in Rental Income Tracker include a Start Date and End Date for the report and a Show Sub Totals option which provides totals in the report for each tenant's payments.

Several minor bugs have been fixed.
