Check out all latest features released for RentCheck Version 6.16!

Manage Your Team

The power is yours! We’re giving you the ability to manage your team’s access directly from RentCheck. Going forward, you will be able to invite team members, build internal teams, and manage teammate roles.

From the My Account page, the newly added Team section will have several new features to give you greater control over your account. First, is the ability to add your colleagues to your RentCheck account by inviting them directly from within the My Account page. We will send an invite, and once accepted you will see them listed as part of your team.

Build Multiple Teams

Create multiple teams within your account to organize your portfolio. We know how important organization is, and we want you to be able to organize your RentCheck units and inspections to reflect your internal teams. If you have multiple portfolios or if you segment your units, create multiple teams so that users only manage their respective units.

When creating teams, add your company name and an internal label for the team. Your company name will be external facing on all communication, while the internal labels are an organizational aid to help you differentiate your teams and portfolios. For individuals on your teams, we’re introducing two new team roles: Admin and Manager. These roles designate who can edit teams and assign units.

Team Admins will have the ability to assign units to a team in bulk from the Units list page. Check as many units as needed, then simply click the “Reassign Team” button to bulk assign to the appropriate internal team.

Lastly, put your branding on your inspections by uploading your company’s logo. All inspection reports will replace the RentCheck logo with your company’s logo at the top, giving your company greater ownership of your inspections.

Revision Request Improvements

Important upgrades have been added to the workflow when requesting a revision on a completed inspection. Now, upon requesting a revision, you can set a new due date specifically for the revision. The revision due date will appear on the Inspection Details page after a revision has been requested and you will also be able to keep on top of any outstanding revision requests when you filter by due date from your Inspections tab. Finally, we’ve introduced new reminders to help ensure requested revisions are completed on time.

Estimated Costs on Maintenance Flags & Reports

Check out the handy new tool allowing you to enter estimated costs when flagging maintenance items. These costs will show on maintenance reports allowing you to easily calculate charges. Use these costs to support security deposit deductions or discussions with property owners.

RV Lot Inspections

In an effort to support a variety of use cases, we’re excited to announce a new inspection type supporting RV lots. For those users on a paid plan, you’ll have access to RV Lot inspections, allowing you to inspect lots, monitor meter readings and manage other utilities.

Improved Experience

While we love to add major upgrades and significant new features, we’re constantly tweaking things behind the scenes to improve your experience and ensure your RentCheck inspections are highly valuable.

Check out all the other updates and tweaks:

  • When creating an inspection, the default due date will be set to one week from the date of creation. This buffer ensures that recipients have time to complete their inspections.

  • On the mobile app, we’ve added better guidance, instructing the inspector to take photos from the corners of a room to ensure they capture the overall condition of the room.

  • Improved the photo carousel on web app, allowing for large images

  • On the mobile app, we’ve added a warning when closing the camera view after taking photos. This will reduce the chance photos are accidentally lost after being taken.

  • Fixed: units created in the mobile app are now visible and and available for inspection creation in the mobile app

  • Scheduled inspection confirmation emails have been removed due to updates to the Scheduled Inspection process and the release of recurring inspections capability.

  • We’ve corrected an issue that occurred with the “Take Over” screen when multiple residents attempted to start the same inspection.

  • Missing recipient messaging has been added to the Scheduled Inspection modal view. This ensures RentCheck alerts the user in the event that an inspection is missing recipient information.

That’s all for this roundup! But so much more coming soon!
