Term Customization (Legacy)
This help article contains instructions for the Legacy Version of Rentec Direct. More information about the latest version of Rentec Direct can be found here: The Remodel | Rentec Direct’s Newest Software Update
You can easily customize words in your Rentec Direct interface. Change common terms on the Customize Terms page in the Settings > Utilities portion of the software.
To use an everyday example, say you preside over a vast kingdom. Obviously, the word Tenant is unfit to be used in royal vocabulary. As such, the decision is made that a Tenant shall henceforth be known as a Subject. That just feels better. Feel the power as you type Subject as the substitution for Tenant into your Rentec Direct interface. Save the substitution and see the immediate results. For those living in the 21st century, another common term changes for Tenant might be “Resident” which generically works for both renters and owners which is great for those HOA managers.
But wait! There are other words you can control as well. For example, subjects in my kingdom are lucky not to pay rent or late fees. Instead subjects willfully contribute a monthly gift to the kingdom. When a subject has not given recently they happily pay a Head Retainment Privilege. It seems subjects are rather attached to their heads and prefer the relationship to remain in good standing. It’s good to be king.
Speaking of removing things, if you are not happy with a word substitution you have made, Rentec Direct provides you the ability to remove it. Click the red “x” next to any word substitution and it will be removed. Once a word substitution is removed, Rentec Direct will go back to using the original word.
Customize these terms in the Rentec Direct interface how you like! The power is yours to wield.
