Multiple Updates for October 2023

Posted on October 27, 2023
A whole host of changes have been made in the latest release of RentHQ based on user feedback.

You can now send a TXT/SMS message to contractors for work orders. This is in addition to the ability to email the job to the contractor. This is great for contractors who are on the go and don't have time to stop and check their emails. Thanks to Nicole for the suggestion.
Send work orders as text messages

You can now add a disbursement reference to the owner details screen. This reference will then get exported when generating a bank import file for banks that support it. The reference is found on the owner details screen, disbursements tab. Thanks to Lee for the suggestion.

A new Australian BAS (Business Activity Statement) report has been created. This is similar to the New Zealand GST Calculation report, but designed with our Australian friends in mind. This report is found on the Reports screen under 'Analysis Reports'. Thanks to Maya for the suggestion.

The attachment list for Tenants, Owners and Work Orders now has an additional 'Online' column. This indicates if the tenant or owner is able to view these files from their online portals. Not available on mobile apps. Thanks to Lee for the suggestion.
Show attachments 'online' status for each file

On the Extra Charge list screen, there is a new column to show the extra charge number. Not available on mobile apps. Thanks to Garth for the suggestion.
