Notifications and Reminders (Notes)

The notes and reminders interface gives you very flexible reminder options. You can set a one-time reminder or a recurring reminder for any frequency you choose.
Here’s a few ideas:
Property Reminder:  Replace batteries in smoke alarms, repeat every 10 years.
Property Reminder:  Send Joe out to clean the gutters, repeat every 6 months.
Property Reminder:  Annoy Frank to no end by both SMS and Email, repeat daily! ;)
Tenant Reminder:  Evaluate and increase rent, repeat every 1 year.

Create a Reminder

In your Rentec Direct account: 

  1. Click on a Property, Tenant, or Account tab.
  2. Right-click on any property, tenant, owner, or account and choose Notes & History.
  3. Now add a new note, and set the reminder settings accordingly.

    If you want to test, just set a reminder for tomorrow with your email address or mobile number and you should get the notification the following day at 8:00AM Pacific.
Creating a notification or reminder
To set only an “in-app” notification, just do not select email or SMS.  You will then get a notice in your notices panel as shown in the following screenshot.

You can change the default notification time at Settings, Program Defaults.

When someone replies to a text that you've sent, the Summary Tab will indicate that you have unread messages in the Notices section.
